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

I once had a problem with a Phillips tv.It was less than one year old and one day ,all of a suddenm a black screen came up.I elarned it was called the "black screen of death" and that other people had gone through the same thing.Someone online had actually written to Phillips and they had gotten a new TV form them,so I tried the same thing and amazingly,Phillips gave us a new TV and came and took the old one.The enw worked fine. So you may have a lemon on your hands.Unfortunately, I do not have the letter I sent to them but the replacement they sent me was part of their "Rapid Replacement" program.This wa sin 2008 so I'm not sure if they still ahve it but it may be worth a try.

Sony Bravia model #KDL52WL130 worked fine for first year then picture went very dark for the 1st 30 minutes it was on but eventually cleared up. Now it takes longer and screen is completely blank. Sound...


I had a similar problem with my Phillips 42 in. LCD HD TV.

Here's the problem. The Power Supply Board. I opened my TV up(warranty was up of course) and found several bad capacitors. Phillips and several other companies were sold capacitors that although were highly rated failed within 5 years, some sooner, because of a lack of preservatives. All sorts of electronic equipment is now being effected due to these defective capacitors.
Solutions?
1. Take it in and have it fixed
2. Open it up, check the board for faulty capacitors(bulged or leaking) Buy a new Power supply board and install it.
3. Remove PSB, remove faulty capacitors and replace with compatible new ones.

Hope this helps

No picture on crt tv


Hi,
This problem is related to video IC that is mounted on c board, mostly it poped and needs replacement. I don't know the model no as you didn;t given so can't tell you the exect ic number. Check it on the base unit of the tv and you will find it. Just replace it along with resistances in surrounding and your tv work fine again.
Thanks for using fixya.

My Phillips Tv keeps turning itself off after around a minute,the power button remians on and green but no picture or sound. It is like the fuse keeps tripping. If you unplug the tv and switch it back on...


The main power supply is trying to fail. You might try giving us the model number since we can't guess exactly what kind of TV you have; LCD or plasma?? They suffer from some differing ills-
