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 projeciton 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 buttpicture looks like you are looking through a peep - 69189a5.pngails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a fix

How do i set yamaha ttr 230 timing


On the left side of the bike on the engine case there will be two large nuts. The smaller one acts like a peep hole that allows you to see the fly wheel. Align a mark that looks like this ( 'T ) to the notch in the threads. WARNING MAKE SURE THE BIKE IS AT TOP DEAD CENTER COMPRESSION! Do this by looks through the spark plug hole and make sure the piston is at its highest point. Once you do this look at the cams. There should be small punch marks in the cam gears. These punch marks need to be aligned with the gasket surface. To check final alignment rotate the engine with the cam cover off and the cams BOLTED down. Make sure the cam tensioner is installed properly as well.

I have a lazy boy front tine garden tiller. i want to have the proper amount of 90 wt gear oil in the transmission. I can see one hole with a plug that says gear oil. Do i fill the gear box up to that...


ITs not really a lazy boy brand is it? If we a re talking about garden tillers... then if the fill hole is on top the oil level should be about 1 ( one) inch below the hole. If the hole is on the side of the gear case then it is a peep hole and should be filled till fluid runs out.

I looked through the peep hole in front of my gas dryer and I don't see anything lit.Dryer spins great, but doesn't heat up. What is the problem?


Igniter - The dryer's igniter is what ignites the gas that has entereddryer-ignitor.jpg through the gas valve. It will glow red, then when it reaches a certain temperature, it will trigger a thermostat that opens up the gas valve and that's when the dryer starts to heat the air. If the igniter has failed, the motor will still run but not produce any heat.

Kello, so you been using you scope on peep holes, hey. I don't know what peep looks like. I see them. Sir, have you been looking at bright light in bedrooms or in the dark? I would think that your ITT Mariner has a loose wire, bad solder joint, wigjt are loose...dad news those wigit. It probably a loose wire. If it continues there is a good possiblity it with quick working. If you know someone that work on this thing, see what they can do. stewbison

Hello irishsusan,
Listen carefully, facing the TV from the front, go to the right side of the TV. Look closely where the input jacks are and you will see a small peep hole. Get a small hair pin or tooth pick and press into that hole for about 8 second. This will reset the set to its original specification. If there is 2 hole, just try one first, if that fail to work, try the next.

Let me know what happened

Best Regards

sounds like a convergence ic board needing to be replaced.
i did a mute183, to do a self focus in the service mode, which corrected my problem, but lost the self focus function without going back into the service mode so enter at your own risk.
