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 projection 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

I have an 86 Honda shadow 500 that runs near overheating


A lot of shadows run high on the gauge. I would be concerned if the fan never turned on when in the red /or if the fan ran constantly. You may just have a gauge that reads really high. I ride a Goldwing and totally ignore my gas gauge(it reads empty for half a tank)and my temp gauge many times does not come on at all. My fan does work, but it never kicks in, therefore i am not overheating. Both items are annoying but not worth fixing since they only back up other systems and are mostly there for looks. There are some antifreeze modifiers like "ICE" that are used in racing where antifreeze is not allowed. One of these may help lower a potentially high temperature. But may not be necessary.

If you are logged on to the administrator account, and still can not do anything.  I would say more than likely it is spyware or malware that is causing your issues.  I just fixed a computer for a customer last night with the same issues.  It was so bad on his that I had to backup all his important data and do a reformat.

I would check the LG website for a software update. I have a Sony and had white sparkles. After downloading their driver update, it fixed the problem along with a few other issues. Good luck.

Good Day, beekae;
No, there no other adjustments that can be made, the TV has had a Convergence Circuit Failure. The "CCF" is caused by that circuit, please call an Authorized Service Center and get an estimate. The avg cost is about $550.00. Good Luck, big IRISH.
PS or come back and I'll tell how to fix, if you are handy and own a good soldering station.
