I have everything in blue. All colors are a shade of blue. The picture is bright clear but everything is shaded blue. Tried new HDMI and new sources but still every thing is in the blue spectrum. ...

The LCD chips in your TV set burned out the only one working is the blue chip that is the reason everything is that color.
You need to replace the optical block in that TV set to fix the problem.
This part runs from $150.00 - $250.00

I hope my answer was helpful :)

Convergences not linning up and bowed after replacing a blown fuse

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 images of convergence problems.

The color is blue tint until tv warms up

this can happen as the set gets a bit older. the lamps inside burn extremely hot and do eventually burn out, this maybe the beginning of things to come. there is no fix shy of replacing a lamp which can be cost ly

Bent picture

Not sure if you fixed your problem already. But the answer is a color convergence problem. You can try adjusting manually via the remote and if that doesn't work it is most likely the two main IC chips that control the color convergeance. It is also possible that not only the IC chips have gone bad but also there are a couple of resistors that usually burn out with the ICs as well. They will need to be replaced. This isn't something that I would attempt on your own. Typically a TV technician will charge between 300 and 400 to fix at your house.

crt burn is common among projection tube tvs. crt burn is just that a burn in the phosper of the crt.. I know of only one solution for this. replacement of the burnt crts. tubes cost on average 250 apeaice and there are 3 then the labor... ussally the cost to do this exceds the value of set. these sets are around 800 to buy new.

Picture looks 3d

It is hard to see, but it looks like your red color has shifted to the right. In most projection sets there are 2 large convergence IC's which put the 3 colors exactly where they are supposed to be on the screen. When one color is way off, giving the 3D effect, and you are unable to line the colors up using the convergence menu, it means that one of the convergence IC's has burned out. This is one of the most common failures in standard projection sets. The burned out IC should be replaced and the convergence circuits realigned by a qualified tech familiar with projection sets.

Screen Burn In ?

Nope Not unless you replace the tubes with the burn in them You have to take off ther front screen and look into the lens while tvs on and you will see what tube is burned worse. Sorry!!! but I have heard of folks equilizing the burned tubes by taking a solid color one at a time (red,green and blue) and keeping on only one color on for 4 to 6 hours one at a time and them all on at a time for a solid white and have seen some pretty good results.. Good Luck
