Below are two of the most common problems encountered with projection TV sets.

Problem #1 - CONVERGENCE 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.

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a Sony convergenece repair kit from the link below.

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 - 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.

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 solution

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 know what you are doing. If you have never done this before we would advise calling a shop or if you want to do it yourself get a complete kit with instructions and support from TvRepairKits.com

Their kits include a step by step instruction guide, originMY PITCURE IS NOT CLEAR 3D LOOKING HOW DO I FIX IT - 2_bing.gifrel='nofollow' href="http://www.fixya.com/support/r2861467-solution_video_looking_whiteish_dull#">Sanyo2_bing.gif STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, email/phone support, etc.

Problem #2 CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around video.

Picture is pink and blue and not clear.


I am going to guess the model number here is correct, sometimes it is not-----that is a older set.

Not 3d looking but washed out or dull looking firstly.

If you go to a unused video input with the color on the set turned to zero what color is the screen? It if correct should be something black and white or grey.

One of the things you can do other than that is from the rear with set not plugged in, clean the 3 large lens==if dusty picture will be darker and dull looking---they are the light source for your picture.

let me know if screen is 3d looking, screen with color off is B&W, and if cleaning the lens helps.

The pitchure looks like its 3d. everything looks


You have a convergece board failure. Changing one board will not nescessarily fix it. It is recommended to change all 3 boards in the unit. many try this as a DIY and fall afoul because it is a specialist job to retune and reset the paramaters. The cost then becomes greater than if a tech did it correctly the first time. Be advised it is not a simple DIY.It requires soldering and desoldering skills, specialised tools and a knowledge of circuit diagrams.

The picture is not clear it has a red and blue outline like 3d


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.

Picture looks like 3D without 3D glasses on???


The cost I don't know, but this can be fixed. I'd say shop around a bit. Make sure the repair person is certified for your TV's manufacturer. There are generally 3 lamps in projection T.V.'s, Red, Green, and Blue. They have to be aligned for the TV to project a clear picture. A credible TV repairman should be able to fix it. Depending on if it's new enough to be under warranty they may cover it as well. Really the only reason to get rid of it is if you want to get a new TV anyway. Depends on the cost of having the lamps aligned.

Cant delete pitcure at Nokia 1100


All you need to do is, just replace those pictures....
You can do this thing in two ways:
1) If you have some picture messages in your Inbox(message), just open them and then go to options and then save that over the unwanted pic.
2) If you don't have any pic. mssg in your inbox, ask somebody else to send it on your no., and then apply the same approach!

Good luck!
