Color convergence alignment

The blue wont line up with the green (fixed) and so we have floating blue images at the bottom of the screen- can I adjust the blue gun without opening the back of the TV?

The screen is green and the tint option in the menu cannot be adjusted.


This symptom usually indicates CRT failure. Projection TV's, especially older types use 3 CRT "guns" to project the image on the screen. One is Cyan or Red, one is Green and one is Blue. If the Red and Blue become weak or do not project, the Green gun overpowers the output of the other two. These three "guns" are aligned exactly on top of each other so when all three are correctly functioning, the correct colors are projected on the screen.

I have a samsung 47 inch rear projection w/self focus there is a continuos blue shadow around images is there a quick fix


The blue is caused by the RGB gun alignment. Green is a fixed gun and Red and Blue are adjustable. In my Mitsubishi, the guns are motorized and can initially be adjusted (course) with the remote. There are more detailed adjustments that can be made if you purchase the service manual. I paid approx $19.00 on line 3 years ago and it is a complete manual. Unfortunetly I don't remember the site. To do a complete alignment, there are steps to take: starting with entering a code using the remote to enter the setup. To make a long story short, I had my tv aligned 3 or 4 times over 5 years under the extended warranty. After watching the tech, who was good, but under time constraints, it was clear that most anyone could do it if they could read and follow instructions.

KP-51HW40 Sony 51" Fades to blue screen


The service manual on page 8 shows how to adjust the Red/Blue/Green screen voltages. To get to the adjustment board, take the front speaker grill off (two screws at the bottom left and right) and set it aside. No need to disconnect any wires. Then remove the plywood board with 4 screws that exposes the screen/focus adjustments. The top 3 adjustments are for focus, and you need not mess with these. The bottom 3 adjustments are for Red/Blue/Green screen voltage rough adjustments. My screen showed red lines, so I had to turn the bottom right adjustment with a philips head screwdriver just slightly until the red gun retrace lines where no longer visible.

Problem is with the voltage setting on the red gun... remove the front panel, there are four screws from the back, then you must tug pretty hard to make the panel come off, don't worry you wont break it, just tug hard. After you remove the front panel of the set and you will see a cardboard panel with a few screws, remove that. Now you should see the three guns... they should be labeled respectively. Now to fix the problem... You will see a phillips screwdriver pot on each of the guns... if you have a red line then turn very so carefully the red pot, blue the blue pot, green the green pot, you only need to make a slight adjustment and the lines will go away, when you first turn the pot you will need to break the factory glue seal, the seal is so that the set doesn't go out of whack during shipment. I had great success adjusting the pots, made my green lines go away instantly. One thing to keep in mind, when adjusting the pots you are changing the voltage to the guns, this works great only you might run into problems in the future with your guns blowing out, this happened in my case, fixed the lines for a few years but blew out the gun. To wrap things up... this set was poorly made with less than mediocre parts... almost everyone i know who has this set has the same problem... to fix this problem when the set is out of warranty will cost more than buying a new one... so... take your set apart and fix it and hope you don't run into problems in the future. Hope this helps... Jer

I got this Sony KP-57WS500 57 in TV for FREE from a guy posting it on craigslist because he saw "BLUE SWIRL LINES" also knows as "Retrace Line" on the screen and he went to several repair people and got high repair costs so he was giving it away for free, but i found a guide that tells you how to adjust the tv to make the blue or green or red lines go away, aparantly the line show up because the voltage on the color ray gun tubes that get out of adjustment. Here is the Link to the REPAIR GUIDE. http://www.somelifeblog.com/2007/06/sony-projection-tv-red-line-repair.html
