The screen is green and the tint option in the menu cannot be adjusted.

This symptom usually indicates CRT failure. Projection TV's, especially older types use 3 CRT "guns" to project the image on the screen. One is Cyan or Red, one is Green and one is Blue. If the Red and Blue become weak or do not project, the Green gun overpowers the output of the other two. These three "guns" are aligned exactly on top of each other so when all three are correctly functioning, the correct colors are projected on the screen.

No colour in bottom right corner

I believ you have an issue with the optical block on your set. Light produced by a high-intensity projection lamp enters the optical block and is split into three paths (one each for red, green, and blue) by a series of lenses, condensers, mirrors, filters, and/or beam splitters. Each color has an LCD assembly with polarizing filters and a liquid crystal microdisplay panel (approximately 1" across). On Sony's "3LCD" models, the light is transmitted through each LCD panel, and, on their "SXRD" (Silicon X-tal Reflective Display) models, the light is reflected off each SXRD panel. Finally, the three separately colored images are combined with a special prism into the final full-color image, which is then projected/enlarged onto the back of the screen by a projection lens.
The following annotated photo shows various parts on the optical block of a 2004 3LCD model KDF-55WF655 (note that the LCD panel cover has been removed):
Either the block is starting to wear out or you have something blocking the lens, such a dirt or something has fallen and is blocking the lens

Re: Toshiba 65 in Cinema Series - 12 years old. Color Separation. Green bow at top center of screen, red and blue double images tilting upwards toward sides. Sometimes clears unassisted after set has...

projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both.

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

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 projection 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 pics of convergence problems.



Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

What is Convergence IC's?

Tube-type projection TVs have separate picture tubes (CRT) for red, green and blue. Convergence is the process of getting the images from the three CRTs to line up properly so you see the correct colors on the screen. The convergence output integrated circuits (ICs) are the electronic devices which make this happen.

Double Image Red and Green

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem

  • 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.

Here is a quick test....

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

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

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


You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick email and they will put one together for you. Their kits includes photo instruction guides, original Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.

Projection lights

You need to take the Toshiba remote that came with the machine and go into a menu area that deals with convergence. Here's what the manual says:

This TV used 3 separate TV tubes, red, green, and blue. The R, G, and B images are pojected onto the screen wheree they converge to form a full-color picture. You can see a clear picture only when the three images converge correctly. Corvergence my drift over time, or if yo move the TV. I you can see clear images on your TV screen skip this procedure.

Make this adjustment only after the TV as been on for at least 30 minutes.

Press the TOUCH FOCUS (auto convergence) button on the front of the TV at the bottom.
The TV will enter into the convergence mode and adjust the converge automatically (that's what it says.)


Press MENU, and the press < or > until the PICTURE menu appears.
Then press UP or DOWN to highlight CONVERGENCE.
Press < or > to display the Center Convergence menu

There's a lot more the book says, but, I can say from experience that you just go through the different sub areas of this menu and converge each color separately, and bingo, it's fixed.

Good luck.

PLEASE HELP (Three Ghost Images)

You will need to have or change the convergence correction driver IC's. There are two of them in this TV set. Not a fix for a novice I'm afraid. If you have no solid state repair experience, play it safe and call out a pro to assist you in this repair.
