3 images in different colors-42 in Sony projection

The tv has three images in the primary colors instead of one picture. How can it be fixed? I can't tell the model because it is against a wall and too big to move. It is about 5 years old.

    Hi, I asked my cousin to look at the posts. He priced stuff out at over $100 and a repairman. Which already put it out of range for the time being

    PS. It's against a wall and we couldn't get behind it to get the numbers. We'd need someone to come in and move it. I'm just a grandma. Maybe this summer. Thanks for your help.

So this is a rear projection TV.

Chances are the tubes are out of alignment. When cleaning or anything never move the tubes as it will be hell to get em back properly.

In the back you can take off the rear panel and move the tubes to partially re-align the picture.

This is generally followed by a model specific procedure using the remote to bring up alignment grids to finalize the picture alignment.

The reason for the 3 colours in the picture are that the rear projection units use Red, Green and Blue tubes to create the one colour picture.

All in all... When I messed mine up it took about 2 hours to set it straight again.

Now I just have to fix my flashing screen problem and i'm set.

Sony Grand WEGA LCD with no picture


If this is the model I am thinking of, don't bother fixing it. Call up sony and they will should offer you an new sony bravia lcd tv. You can either get the free one or upgrade from the free one to a bigger one. I guess that there is some recall with the light engine and sony is giving out this offer. This happened to my grandma to her 42" grand wega. The ending result was that she got a 46" 120hz sony bravia tv for, if I remember right, $250. I hope that this helps. Good luck and happy new years!!!

Poor picture quality on my samsung HD TV


Hey xf1racer,

Based on the description that you provided, it sounds like you are using a bundled composite video cable to connect your cable box and TV. Composite video cables generally consist of three color-coded cables: one yellow, one red and one white. While the yellow cable is typically used to transmit the video signal to your TV, the red and white cables transmit the right and left audio channels respectively.

Red/green/blue bundled cables however, are often referred to as component video cables - each of the three colored cables is used to transmit a different portion of the same video image from one device to another, and require a second separate cable (typically red/white) to transmit an audio signal.

The primary benefit of using component over composite cabling is that many users may report a cleaner, more brilliant image on their TV as a result. Please keep in mind however that this is not a guarantee that changing from your current set-up to component cables will improve the picture quality on your TV, as picture quality is often based as much on personal preference as it is the actual configuration and settings of the equipment used.

Additionally, many retailers may suggest changing your current configuration to one using HDMI cables instead to improve picture quality even further. Unlike composite and component cables, standard coaxial cables, and S-Video cables which transmit analog signals, HDMI cables are designed to instead transmit uncompressed digital signals. This typically means that more information is available for your TV to process in terms of color hue, color intensity, as well as image resolution. Again, remember that any perceived improvements will be based on both personal preference as well as your home theater configuration.

Should you have any questions or lingering doubts, I would strongly suggest speaking with a Magnolia Home Theater agent at your local Best Buy™ store for more information. Most stores will have similar TV's on display using more than one type of connection, and sales associates are always able to provide additional suggestions if desired.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.
