How do you fix a 52" hdtv ready when its in 3D blurry format


This tv doesn't have 3D capabilities - the image appears blurry because both images are displayed on the same screen at the same time. Just don't use the 3D option from the BluRay player, view the movie normally - 2D.

Lines, a little blurry, a little movement


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.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

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. Power light will blink. 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. And you should be able to get the grid straight.

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 fix

My kp-51ws-510 looks like 3D! How can I fix this


TV shows that kind of picture when convergence out ICs become defective.
Replace 2 big black convergence ICs on D board in TV, these ICs are mounted on silver heat sink, requires soldering work if you are not comfortable with replacing ICs, call local tv tech.
Let me know if there is any further question.
Thanks.

3D blurry picture


The convergence ICs and resistors need replacement. The DPTV305-345 convergence repair kit works for most Phillips rear projection Tvs. The kit contains the two ICs 12 resistors and the CD with detailed instructions

Screen showing lots of colors caving in on top


You have no power to your convergence circuit. Depending on what model RCA you have will determine which parts are bad. Will cost about $200-$300 for a repair shop to repair.
