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

Why do i have a green screen after i turn the screen adjustment screw?


since every display color monitors are only work with 3 primary color which are red, blue and yellow. You could also search it that by mixing these colors, you could get any color your want. Thats how color monitors work. Now in case of green color, it creates by mixing blue and yellow. When you are turning the screen adjustment screw, the red color plug will become lose, makes it appear green.
I hope your got the reason.

Yellow raster on tv is cause by what?


Hello
Check the Blue video output transistor for loose solder. This transistor can be located at its video output card, usually pluged on to the neck of the picture tube. There is no blue output is now, only Red and green are there. The mixing of Red and Blue color, and absensce of blue color, causes the raster to appear as yellow. The fault is purlely with blue output transistor at the video output state of your tV. If there is no loose solder, just replace this transistor with same number. If loose solderings are found, resolder that points by applying a little more solder, without making any solder bridge short in between adjecent solder terminals.

The colors are looking strange when the DVD plays. The colors look blue, neon greenish-yellow, but no reds. The colors are perfect when tv is on, but dvd screen, once movie begins, has strange colors. ...


Try placing the dvd-player as far as you can away from the TV. It may be creating EMI (electro-magnetic interference). Ensure that the wires from the DVD-to-TV are not positioned close to other electronic devices -try moving them.

You say the TV works fine on its own, so that is good; there is probably no big magnet or speaker near the TV.

If it is not anything external causing interference, then yes, your DVD player is probably malfunctioning. Try borrowing a friends..

Picture is distorted


Is your TV near anything magnetic ? This causes picture issues. If the thing is a tube TV then you can fix this fault with a magnet. Call 0845 20 20 118 for help

Not true color


I seem to have found the solution (and the cause, perhaps?) for this problem!

I was having the EXACT same problem with a monitor I'm repairing for a friend. The capacitors on the power supply board were blown (CapXon capacitors, who'd've guessed), which was keeping it from powering up. After replacing the capacitors, the screen worked beautifully. But it had this weird yellow tint!

The strange part was that pure colors - red, green, blue - all appeared perfectly OK on screen. Curiously, the menus would show in the proper colors, except for one: the manual color adjustment menu, which illustrated "Blue" as a sort of off-green in the icon. Auto-Adjust would always fix the colors for a split second, then go back to yellow. Reset didn't fix it. Color reset didn't either. So, exactly the same problem as above.

The solution I found was hidden within the main menu itself, a sort of "easter egg". <b>Hold the Menu button down while pressing Power, and hold it down until the screen, and menu, appear</b>. There will now be a hidden selection, "Auto Color", printed in a red-on-black font at the bottom of the menu. Use the +/- buttons to access it, and press Menu. Voila! PERFECT COLOR! Perhaps this menu was accessed by accident, and calibrated to an incorrect color key. But now my picture works great, and the setting lasts through Auto-Adjusts and Resets!
