Yellow/red static and poor image quality

After a few minutes of being on the tv developes an image issues...almost a yellow static that changes to red as well. The picture distortion has a wide range from annoying to unseeable. But does fix itself after being left on...there is now consistancy in if the static appears, how long it will be there, or if the tv will fix itself.

    the colors on my set mutate from a normal picture to a pink, blue colorized version of images. i have dish satellite. they have tested the line and assured me that it is not from their feed. i have unpluggged, powered down, reset to factory default. it happens during a live broadcast, dvd playing, recorded shows you name it. it may last for a few minutes to over 30. sometimes i just turn it off in the hopes that will reset whatever is wrong. i have only had it for a year. i noticed that hsn doesn't carry the tv anymore. i don't want to comment on that! do i need to switch to an HDMI cable? should i just send it in for repairs. it's under a protection plan.

There are some components in the video processor area or the power supply area that have become thermo sensitive with age. Over time, they will most probably fail completely.

The set should be serviced by a tech who is familiar with your set and has the proper resources to service it.

Dark lines fs 3900


The lines are more than likely caused by either the Drum, Developer or Fuser unit. I have found in many cases that if non genuine toner is being used this will give you poor quality images. You can try using genuine toner which may resolve your issue but you may have to run a few hundred prints to clear out the old toner before the image improves.

Tv out of foucs


These procedures are from the owners manual, go into menu and then picture quality and then: Convergence The Convergence feature lets you adjust the TV’s three tubes. When the TV tubes’ images are precisely aligned, they create the color images you see on the screen. Over time, the picture can drift out of alignment (this is normal). If your picture seems fuzzy or has a yellow tint, using Convergence could correct this misalignment. Only one convergence is needed for all inputs, regardless of the signal format. Note: Make sure the TV has been on for at least 30 minutes (TV needs to warm up for best results) before starting Auto Converge or Red/Blue Centering. When you select the Convergence feature, a submenu appears with three options: Auto Converge Automatically aligns the projection lenses to self-correct color images. You’ll see flashing squares of color dance across the screen (this is normal). Note: After performing auto convergence, use the Blue Centering and Red Centering menus to fine tune convergence in the center of the screen, if necessary. Blue Centering Aligns the blue and green images to fine-tune the picture. Red Centering Aligns the red and green images to fine-tune the picture. Note: The ability to change channels is disabled when adjusting the convergence options. The TV must be tuned to a usable signal to converge the picture.

Poor picture quality, the picture is blurred and


You have problem with convergence. Have you tried adjusting in the users menu. This is a common problem in this type of TV, usually two convergence amp need to be replaced and sometimes sets of resistors are also to be changed.

Yellow toner will not print


If you let the yellow toner get to the point where the toner cartridge was totally empty, there is one thing you can try which may help. From the "menu", select "maintenance", then go to "clean developer" and choose the yellow. The machine will then churn for a few minutes. What happens is there is a tube that moves the toner from the toner cartridge down to the developer unit ( which is behind the imaging drum). If the toner was allowed to totally run out, there is an area of the tube which may have little or no toner in it. Each time you print, there is a spring auger within the tube that draws the toner to the developer. By running the "clean Developer" it turns the auger and re primes the tube.

If this does not fix the issue, and you have replaced the imaging unit, then the yellow developer is defective and would need to be replaced. This involves quite a bit of work and is not considered user replaceable.

No. your problem is related to the coolant in the green CRT has congealed with bacteria and needs to be changed. Thats what causes the halos and general poor picture and color quality. The blue should be changed also. The red for some reason doesnt seem to be affected by the bacteria problem. This is a common problem that happens with all projection TVs phillips and magnavox TVs

Poor picture quality on my samsung HD TV


Hey xf1racer,

Based on the description that you provided, it sounds like you are using a bundled composite video cable to connect your cable box and TV. Composite video cables generally consist of three color-coded cables: one yellow, one red and one white. While the yellow cable is typically used to transmit the video signal to your TV, the red and white cables transmit the right and left audio channels respectively.

Red/green/blue bundled cables however, are often referred to as component video cables - each of the three colored cables is used to transmit a different portion of the same video image from one device to another, and require a second separate cable (typically red/white) to transmit an audio signal.

The primary benefit of using component over composite cabling is that many users may report a cleaner, more brilliant image on their TV as a result. Please keep in mind however that this is not a guarantee that changing from your current set-up to component cables will improve the picture quality on your TV, as picture quality is often based as much on personal preference as it is the actual configuration and settings of the equipment used.

Additionally, many retailers may suggest changing your current configuration to one using HDMI cables instead to improve picture quality even further. Unlike composite and component cables, standard coaxial cables, and S-Video cables which transmit analog signals, HDMI cables are designed to instead transmit uncompressed digital signals. This typically means that more information is available for your TV to process in terms of color hue, color intensity, as well as image resolution. Again, remember that any perceived improvements will be based on both personal preference as well as your home theater configuration.

Should you have any questions or lingering doubts, I would strongly suggest speaking with a Magnolia Home Theater agent at your local Best Buy™ store for more information. Most stores will have similar TV's on display using more than one type of connection, and sales associates are always able to provide additional suggestions if desired.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

you might wanna look into the "flicker issue" with your set...If you've had it for a while a could be that it's just worsened over time and developed into a voltage leak. I have the same set and it went undetected for a couple of years due to poor quality cable signal..once I went to a clear signal (ie. directv) the issue was very noticeable, but by that time it had progressed. Eventually one of your guns will fail and the set will stop working all together (mine did just under 4yrs from purchase) and unless you have Sears warranty that WILL try to stick it to you. TRUST ME!!! Good luck.
