Projection TV sets have two very common problems listed below.

Problem #1) 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

Pictures are blurred........... HELP


When you reboot your computer, hold down the "Delete" key. This should take you to a black screen and multiple options like "Safe Mode", etc. Choose "Last Known Good Configuration" then see if that helps.

If the pictures on the Internet are blurred, it's most likely due to a setting in your router/modem or web browser that is loading the page with minimal image quality and size to make browsing faster.

IM HAVING A SLIGHT PROBLEM


You need service. Sounds like the convergence is out of adjustment. As the picture is formed by a tri- gun arrangement (one for each colour), if any of them is not correctly aligned, you will see shadows on any sharp line like text, or blurring on a picture. The shadow or blurring will often be one colour i e. red, blue or green.

Yes, it's not uncommon. It also depends a bit on the TV. Some are better than others. There is a connection between price and quality, although it is not absolute. What kind of equipment are you using? DVD, satelite tuner etc, and how is it connected? (scart etc)

Colors can be adjusted from the menus (se your manual for reference). I've never seen a TV that don't need color adjusting before it gets good, as color experience will vary with room coloring and light, etc.
