Red picture tube out of alingment how do you make major adjustment


Its done with the original remote--convergence in the customer menu should be looked at first---call up the crosses or the grid of lines, it has one or the other.

You first want to look to see if red out and then if it will move both up/down and left right where off.

If it will not move in some direction anywhere on the screen the convergence output chips the set uses are bad.

The set will or should have two hidden menus, one will bring up the advanced grid for convergence---input for that with the remote is Mute, 181 or 183----if you call up the wrong one shut set off and try the other number.

It is possible to converge the whole screen there, if memory serves me 7,8,9 change the color being adjusted DO NOT ADJUST GREEN FOR ANY REASON.

two buttons (different on different remotes will move the cursor around the grid (and the remote must have a button somewhere on it with "data" to save the adjustments.

Check in customer menu the convergence first---got movement?

My phillips 2006 hd tv has a black line across the screen with a snowy freeze


If you have parallel horizontal black lines on a white background, you can see the separation between the lines when it is viewed at close range (Figure 1). As you view the lines from further and further away,the image gets smaller, you eventually get to the point where you can no longer see the separation between the lines, and it looks like one line. Losing the ability to see separation in the lines is exactly what happens when you sit too far back from an HDTV set. If we apply the same principle to an HDTV, a 1080p resolution HDTV has to fit 1920 vertical and 1080 and horizontal black lines separated by the white space on the screen, (that is the pixel grid of a 1080p HDTV display). Furthermore the spaces between each cell of the grid need to be very small in relation to the area each cell occupies, or you will get a screen door type effect. A bigger HDTV can increase the size of the cells and the separation between the cells, so everything doesn't run together when you sit further back.

Screen issues


In the customer menu first look for convergence--if this is Akai it is made by Samsung.

in the convergence menu will be either a grid of lines or several crosses--examine and see if your red line is out of position there.

If it is it may just require with the remote adjustment in that menu.

Cleaning will not resolve a red line.

let me know what you find.

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projeciton sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....
  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the settings menu then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right. And you should be able to get the grid straight.

If you can't move them in all directions or cant move them far enough your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

Note: If you TV has as flash focus or magic focus button only try pressing the button. If it fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a fix

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses.
This is a a fairly easy DIY job if you are handy and can follow directions. You can get complete repair kits from TvRepairKits.com or click here. They have put together DIY repair kits that include the OEM parts and step by step photo instructions for each repair. If you are not handy or can't follow directions we would suggest calling a shop.

Phillips flat screen won't work


First, eliminate the possibility that the power cord, itself, is not faulty. Try another power cord from, say, your computer, or something else with the same type of power cord. This is often overlooked
