Concentric rings with different color distortions - time for a new set?

Hi Pravin,

Thanks for being willing to answer these questions!

Our Panasonic 27" tube TV came on this morning with concentric rings of color distortions. It kind of looks like a Bull's Eye has been superimposed over the picture. Sort of psychadelic. I think the inner circle is yellowish, with a blueish ring around it, and then with a greenish ring around that.

I'm thinking it is time to get a new TV, but I figured I would ask if you had any quick ideas about what is wrong.

Thanks,

~Dave

Hi I have a Panasonic 36" TXPF10 TV. THERES different colors on the screen like a SPECTRUM, is there anyway of fixing this


Its what we call a purity problem on this 36 inch set and only two things cause it, the set (not getting too technical) uses a single part connected inside that when set is turned on powers a large coil around the picture tube--it just demagnetizes the tube---what happens is there is a single black square part there not much bigger than a cube of sugar---easy to spot as it will have three leads in a triangle shape---

What you will likely find if you can get the set apart---Its a real heavy set is follow the power cord to the board---real high chance you will find one of the three leads on that part has broken loose from the board, happens from all the heat at turn on that part gets real hot for a very short time.

You would be smart if one lead has come loose to solder all three---the part is often referred to as a thermistor--as it gets hot it cuts voltage off to the coil.

The other possible cause is only possible if set fell forward or was dropped, in that case the damage is fatal and cannot be repaired.

Let me know if questions.

Picture is bowed and colors are off, cant read headlines


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

Picture color is distorted.


Try turning off power and let set cool completely. Then turn back on. Letting it cool complety re-arms the autmatic degaussing circuit. It may take several cycles to completly clear it up.

Hi,

From the symptoms you describe, it seems the high voltage flyback autotransformer has failed along with the horizontal amplifier (they are slaved to each other). The sound comes from the flyback unit. I guess it must be a high pitched squeal, actually...

Well, the only way to solve this is to get a technician take a look at the set, I'm afraid. Repairs could cost upto $100 or more, depending upon the number of components that need to be replaced,

Since the set is new, it may be worth getting fixed up. If you decide to do so, call around, as shops have different rates and different expertise. Many shops are hurting for work because so many of the smaller sets are never repaired anymore; they are just thrown out and replaced since the cost of a new set is sometimes as low as the repair expense.

Hope that helps...Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

P.S. Before you assign a rating, please make sure that the issue is resolved or you are satisfied. If not, please post back as to what you did, and/or any other questions you may have, and I will try to assist you as best I can. Please do not assign an ‘Inappropriate’ or ‘Thanks for trying’ rating if your issue is not resolved after the first response itself, as sometimes a bit of to and fro dialogue may be necessary before we can find a fix or an answer to your query.

If you find that the solution/answer I provided led you to, or resulted in a fix, please close the ticket with a FixYa! rating. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.

Thank you for using FIXYA!

Rings of Color


You will need a degausser. Check out Wikipedia for the definition. Look on ebay or your local TV repair shop. Cost should be $20-$100.

It sounds like you have a warped shadow mask in your picture tube if your set uses a picture tube. A shadow mask is like a screen wire that lets the three color guns shoot electrons to their respective phosphor dot on the screen to produce the three primary colors which are mixed properly to produce the scene that is being shown. In other words you have a bad picture tube. Stargazer
