    If your are still having this problem try unplugging the TV from the a/c outlet overnight. Need: how much time after is on before going off what did picture do before it went off, what did you hear from TV when it went off?

I would take it to a repair shop, they charge around $50 to look it over, and then tell you want is wrong with it and they will give you the cost to fix it. This is what I do when TV's go out. It will save you time and money in the long run.

There is double vision at times, then it goes away.


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...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*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.

Brightness up all the way but pitchure keeps getting darker


There was a post on fixya in about December of 2007 detailing the replacement of capacitor C581 on the "D" board but w/o pics. I can't seem to locate that link now.

But... I just did the C581 fix on my set tonight. Here are pics

Hope this help.

====Disclaimer====
WARNING! There are high voltages inside the set even when unplugged dueto stored energy in some components. Do not attempt this yourselfunless you are experienced with this type of circuitry. I stronglysuggest that you get a professional repair person to do this work.

33uF 160V capacitor from www.mouser.com is 82 cents plus shipping in quantity one.
