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 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 www.TvRepairKits.com

How do i watch a 3d movie on my 55"thorn tv?


the tv automaticly determines if it should go to 3D mode as long as the DVD player or say like PS3 or PS4 is connected to HDMI (yes those two game consoles will support HD Blueray 3D and DVD 3D movies) if the TV isnt displaying 3D look into the video settings of your TV to enable that ability also your TV will come with 3D glasses if the TV supports 3D

Hello, I have 50inch Panasonic 3d plasma tv. The tv works good but I feel the picture could look a little better. I have tried all types of calibrating but still have a grainy picture.


if you have cable or satellite remove cable to box make sure it is straight and not broken reattach also with your original remote that came with the tv adjust the contrast & brightness but you must use the remote that came with the tv!

What kind of TV supports 3D?


You need to look for TV's labeled 3D ready feature a screen capable of displaying 3D content, and have the necessary emitter built-in. One important thing to keep in mind is that you'll need more than just a 3D TV to watch 3D at home - you'll also need pairs of 3D Glasses for anyone watching, as well as a 3D video source, like a 3D Blu-ray movie.

Visio LCD LED 3D tv how do you watch tv in 3D?


For the M3D420 Vizio TV, you need a 3D source connected to the TV with an HDMI cable that supports 3D. Some older HDMI cables will not carry all of the data of a 3D source. Turn off the set top box (for example a 3D Blu-ray player). Set your TV to the correct input (press the Input button on your remote). Then turn on the set top box and (for the Blu-ray player) insert your 3D content disc. Start playing the movie. When you see the prompt "3D content detected", highlight Yes to switch to 3D display and press OK to start the 3D playback.

After selecting Yes and pressing OK, then put on your 3D glasses. Make sure that you are sitting with your eyes level with the TV screen eye-line and looking straight at the screen. (If you are off-line, you will not get the 3D experience.)

These directions probably apply to all 3D Vizio TVs. I hope this helps.
