Hello Rc Overkill,

Try this procedure:

Adjust the green & blue CRT screens to match the red. Go into your picture menu adjust, turn color all the way down to a black & white picture. Now adjust each CRT screen so that you end up with a true black & white picture. Then adjust each focus control to get a sharp picture, and adjust each CRT focus one at a time for clarity by covering the other two up. Then go back into picture adjust and turn color half way up, you should see a better picture.


If you cannot get the blue & green to even out to a black & white screen you have other problems such as faulty CRT card on back of tube or it could even be that the video IC is faulty. If this is the case, then you may have to get a competent local technician to check the TV and get the necessary parts replaced.


Hope that helps...Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

    It appears that you may have to replace the CRT's or the convergence chip. I recommend that you get a qualified technician to do this, as it is not that simple if you are not very familiar with electronics and soldering.
    If, however, you'd like to try this yourself, HERE is a clear step by step procedure with pictures.
    If your TV is still under warranty, then the best thing to do would be to take it back to the shop and get a replacement.

    Cheers!

If the red is showing like a 3D image and the video looks like the one from this link. The info on what part needs to be replave is also found here.
This might not be a DIY if you do not feel comfortable. The repair shops charge about $350.00 to $400.00 for this type of repair.

This is a hardware side fault which needs service.
The red CRT is getting weak. I would recommend you let a professional do the job.

Philips hd tv monitor 51pp9303h/17 dp TV 345 347he10839 TV receiver 3135020592 my screen is red and I tried to adjust the color nothing happen it still red can I fix myself


The model indicated is a older rear projection set.

If you go to a program that is black and white and turn the color off the screen should be something close to black and white.

There is a way to adjust the red screen down but it takes two people.

If you want to know how and what is involved let me know.

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.

My pictures are always to red


The screen control setting may need to be adjusted - the screen contol is a service adjustment and is located internal to the TV. If you turn the TV to a blank channel or video input with nothing connected is the prevailing color red? if so adjusting the screen control may help.You would have to take off the front panel and remove the covering- let me know if you want to go ahead and I'll guide you further - caution since high voltage is present in this area.

Too much red in screen on Large Screen Projection TV


Try to adjust the convergence in the adjust menu. If this doesn;t help then you probably have a defective convergence board. one or more of the convergence ic's has to be replaced.

Red tint on screen


Good Day,

Try resetting the TV by unplugging from wall outlet for 3 to5 minutes then plug back in. If no fixya take front grill off and panel and adjust the screen controls, turn color off adjust for Black & White Picture. Good Luck, big IRISH.

Bad color


Your TV most likely has one of two possible problems.

Problem #1: Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem
  • 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.

f0900cb.jpg
Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.



You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

2c07611.pngSolution #1

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.


Problem #2 CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

2c07611.pngSolution #2


What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.
