SOURCE: HX-P4241W appears yellow. Left and Right of screen are yellow

Yellow is the lack of blue. It can happen when you are running your contrast - which is your overall light level - too high.

Try turning down your contrast. On CRT tech, contrast should always be run at half what the factory allows as full, on the user controls. Full up is what calibrators call Torch Mode, and is NOT the way to get performance to be in the linear operating range of CRT tech.

If your sides are more yellow than your middle, your set may need lenstriping. Mild yellow on the sides is not uncommon, and usually not noticed. But heavy yellow on the sides would indicate that the blue image needs work on white field uniformity.

SOURCE: blurry.....convergence problem???

I agree with Shuttle83,

except with point #4 and #8,

#4 If you buy OEM Sanyo IC Convergence chips ruff looking black with rounded corners and up them to the next one up they will last longer. if you buy generic shiny smooth black with sharp corners they may only last 5 months. remember you get what you pay for the OEM's are usally $12-15 each, generics are $7-12

#8 you should reset to the factory settings after replacing the Convergence ships before trying to adjust again.

good luck!

Tv gets light blueand stays that way...comes back to perfect color the back to blue X-RAy looking it is a samsung pcl545r


Behind the screen, there are three color tubes: Red Green and Blue.

Unfortunately, rear projection screens often have these problems and the tubes do go out after extended use.

Take the television to a TV Repair shop to have this fixed. But in the long run, this may end up costing you a lot more than if you would purchase a new TV. The light tubes are fairly expensive.

The right side of the TV has shadows/distorted images and colors


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 projeciton 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.

Here is a quick test....

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

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right. And you should be able to get the grid straight.

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

Note: If you TV has as flash focus or magic focus button only try pressing the button. If it fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a fix

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses.
This is a a fairly easy DIY job if you are handy and can follow directions. You can get complete repair kits from TvRepairKits.com or click here. They have put together DIY repair kits that include the OEM parts and step by step photo instructions for each repair. If you are not handy or can't follow directions we would suggest calling a shop.

Yes, your geometry correction has failed and you will need to seek qualified tech for help. You need what are called STKs and you should be able to get the job done inhome for under 300.00
