Old pink and purple bathroom needs help.

The consensus here is a medium to pale/light blue - black or dark blue would blend better, but it would be one darn dark bathroom. You want something that blends, not accentuates the purple.

Hope this helps :)

Arched pink lines across screen. Now green and pink double stacked wording.

Projection sets have two very common problems.

The first common problem is convergence

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the 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,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Krazy colours

Hi if picture is of it could be convergnce ic and that would require a tv tech cost is 250.00.

But the arching noise is usually your high voltage arching from fly back or spiltter you could take off back be careful it is very high voltage only do if you now this stuff, and you will see it arching when it is on and where ever the arc is coming from is the problem the fly back is a large transformer and is black with red high voltage lead coming out of it the leads could be bad to.
the splitter is where all the leads go into from tubes. i hope this helps cost to fix for tv shop is 350.00. thanks doctor video

Colour alignment off

Need to replace the convergence IC in the green vertical circuit. Check the 3.9 ohm resistors located in front of the IC.
