    Thank you so much. I am a 70 year old lady and knows nothing about what is behind the back cover on the TV, so I will call my the service company and have them return, hopefully at no cost and I will give them this information. Well, you sure are right about the unnecessary replacement as the problem didn't go away. Thanks again. Nina Roberts

    Thank you for your solution. The serviceman has returned, he followed your suggestions, and it seems that my TV is working okay at this time--no extra cost, but of course I had paid big bucks already. I appreciate your help. NR

This problem happens because the LCD chips that generates the image receives bad data - no connection whatsoever with the bulb or the optical engine (they were replaced unnecessarily).
You have a bad connection somewhere on your tv's mainboard - take the back cover off and reseat all wires. Also take a look at all the solderings for the wires and connectors - one of them might have failed and , even if it still looks ok from afar , it no longer does its job.

Wavy horizonal disturbance in picture


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. 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, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms
  • Screen Looks 3-D
  • Colors wont align
  • Screen may look distorted or warped

Picture goes away on my DLP TV


that is an overheating problem. With the TV unpluged clean and or vacuum the internal tubes. Not the lamp though. Do not touch the lamp as any oils on your hands will cause a hot spot and the expensive lamp will fail.

Picture was fine, then lines diagonally, now light


Projection sets have two very common problems outlined below.

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. The TV can also shut down when the convergence starts to fail.

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, RCA and others.

Green screen with red and blue wavy lines


This is "NOT" meant as "expert" advice...as this is not my area...HOWEVER...I see no one has answered this yet...AND I got some good help from here a year or so ago that worked for me!

When I had a similar "green screen" problem with my SONY projection tv...the guy helped me by having me make "MINOR" adjustments to the red/blue/green etc knobs behind the panel. These were three small black plastic pieces and needed less than a 1/16 of an inch adjustment...try adjusting one at a time and giving it few seconds after each adjustment. It worked for me..at least for a while (till my wife gave it away to a friend because it was "too big"...ah! women!!! LOL)...hope this helps. (NON-expert help!)
