Really blurry


Look in main menu for convergence and see if it will adjust--if off either adjustments or a bad chip---picture will look 3d and red or blue outlines around lettering etc.

If by out of focus you mean 3d looking with colors skewed or red or blue outlines around letters etc, it is convergence problem.

Blurring of lettering on bottom of screen


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 a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links 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.

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

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

You can see some more examples and find a fix herebb0cf99.png

Green and red outlines -- Help!


This is most likely due to a problem in sthe convergence circuit. Since it seems to get worse as the set is on, I would look first for poor connections around the convergence ICs. Bad connections can change the circuit characteristics enough to cause this symptom. Resolder the pins on these ICs. These are large blac ICs attached to a heat sink and should be marked STKxxx.
Keep us posted.

Red outlines and red lines on my panasonic PT-52LCX65


Good Day;
It sounds like you have a Convergence Circuit concern, with PAN replace with originals (STK392-110), using different "TYPES", ( that you may see on some sights, DO NOT), will draw too much current and you will have premature failure.
Good Luck, big IRISH.-
