That tv is a rear projection tv. It uses 3 CRT tubes that are Blue, Red, and Green and converges the pictures on top of each other. The convergence chip needs to be replaced. Samsung Akai Projection TV Repair Kit for one or more of the following...

Tips and tricks to get cool photo effects from a disposable camera


Now a days we have all these awesome cameras and computer programs that can edit the photos into some thing new and cool. Even from my cell phone I can edit a photo on the spot and create a cool image, but did you know that you can do these same effects with a regular old disposable camera?

Making 3D pictures
You can easily create 3D images with your disposable cameras. The way that 3d works is by taking two pictures of the same thing from slightly different angles. So if you take two disposable cameras and tape them together one upside down and one right side up. You can use a few of the methods on this site to view your 3D images.

Color filters
You can get some really cool color effects when you hold a flash filter up infront of the flash. If you want to get really creative you can use wax paper or other clear colorful wrapping plastics to get some interesting effects.

Damage the lens
Damaging the lens can do some really cool stuff. Take a screw driver or piece of steel wool and scratch the edges of the lens. Doing this will give you an awesome framed look and there are so many options for things to do. Even just flipping the lens inside out will give you a different picture.

Disposable cameras may seem like something from the past, but with these tips you can make some really cool artwork. There is really no limit to the effects that you can get from playing with a disposable camera and best of all they don't require you to learn a new photo editing software!

Picture is pink and blue and not clear.


I am going to guess the model number here is correct, sometimes it is not-----that is a older set.

Not 3d looking but washed out or dull looking firstly.

If you go to a unused video input with the color on the set turned to zero what color is the screen? It if correct should be something black and white or grey.

One of the things you can do other than that is from the rear with set not plugged in, clean the 3 large lens==if dusty picture will be darker and dull looking---they are the light source for your picture.

let me know if screen is 3d looking, screen with color off is B&W, and if cleaning the lens helps.

Picture is bending at the top and bottom and looks 3d


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
  • No Audio/Video - makes a chirping sound.
Problem #2

Another common problem is dull or washed out video.
Your TV may have one or more of the following symptoms....
  • Dull looking picture
  • White looking picture
  • Halos around objects
  • Red/Orange looking picture
