When your son bumped into the tv he probably aggravated a common fault with these televisions. The convergence ic's have a tendency to break loose and cause distortion on one of the crt's in your case it was the red crt.
Don't blame him he just exposed the problem that was learking. The repair can be an easy one if the tech just solders the bad connection this may fix the problem and the tech is done. But the tech may have to replace the stk392 ic's there are two of them. If he needs to do this he may need to do a re-convergence of the tv to remove the problem. The labor to re-converge the tv will be the bulk of your expense. This repair typically costs around 300 to repair. Any tv tech worth his salt can perform this repair it is a fairly common problem.

Sorry this is the best I could do for you. It sounds like one of your CRT tubes could be damaged, not seated properly, or off alignment. It's hard to say with these projection TV's without being there. It's looks like your going to have to call a tech.

Try calling them and see what they can do for you. Is the TV still under warranty. There is so much that can go wrong with these units I recommend getting an extended warranty. Let me know if I can help you out with anything else.

TV has RED and GREEN colors distorting the color output of the TV. Can not simply adjust color and hue. Red and Green still remains controlling and dominant. How do I fix this?


If it does this on all inputs then it is the tv itself. You can try different sources and cables to see if the problem is not the tv. If the problem is the tv I would suggest having the tv repaired. It looks like a nice unit so it would probably be worth fixing. I would find a reputable local shop to take it to.

Mitsubishi RPTV has a blue shadow/image alignment problem


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.

The color on our Sony tv is now distorted. The


if this is an older tv and your state might have changed to digital programming then i would suggest trying to look at the back of the set and see if you have anything to fix this problem or you might want to CHECK AND SEE IF YOU HAVE VIDEO ON or CABLE on or TV on. Sometimes if you have Antenna switch to cable then your channels would be red and picture distorted. change the antenna to air for tv. or from tv to cable.

Distorted colors on my mitsubishi wd-73727


Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.

The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded overs. To get fixed either call in a local TV repair company or goto sites such as Tv Repair Kits to get a repair kit with instructions. Here is there link.

Color off


Lol some people would pay good money for a doubling tv. Me myself I can think of all those beautiful women and those extra features........... Sorry first thing is to call out a technician because it sounds like the de-gaussing mechanism of the tv has gone haywire or that there is a fault with the screen itself. Either way its not one that can be fixed without technical knowledge. Good luck.
