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.

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit from the link below.

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 - 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.

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 solution

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 know what you are doing. If you have never done this before we would advise calling a shop or if you want to do it yourself get a complete kit with instructions and support from www.TvRepairKits.com

Color is distorted on I pad


Try this - Reset the iPad by holding down on the Sleep and Home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider - let go of the buttons. (This is equivalent to rebooting your computer.) No data/files will be erased.
If there's the possibility it was dropped, turn the iPad over and give it a HARD SLAP on the back. May take several slaps.

Hi,
Sounds like you have a bad convergence circuit, it's what lines up your picture so the colors are correct. Most brands (excluding RCA) use the same basic design. There are 2 big ICs called STKs that normally fail, some resistors or fuses may also go. Its about $300-$400 bucks to have someone repair it. If you want to try it yourself, this link TVrepair will take you to a site that sells kits with the parts and step by step instructions on how to fix it. Good luck

3 pixel wide stripe on lcd


Hi Casey,

If the problem is getting worse, than either the pixels are dying (so to speak) or you might have a problem with the monitor's screen.

Unfortunately, if either of the above are true, then the only way to fix it would be to replace the screen, which can be quite expensive. If you agree that this is the problem then you'd be better off getting a new monitor instead of spending money to get it repaired.

Good Luck.

Yellow stripe down the screen.?


And a good evening to you!
It is possible that you have a bad LCD assembly, or possibly the LCD cable connector is loose. The only way to find out is to remove the LCD assembly from the top cover so that you can access the connector. It is located behind the LCD screen.
If you want a copy of a service manual for the disassembly process, let me know and I'll see what I can do for you.
