Question about Projection Televisions

1 Answer

Yesterday, I bought a Sanyo 26" flat screen TV Model DP26648. The color is poor and I have tried to cursor up and down in the color, tint, contrast, brightness, etc. I don't seem to be able to seem to be able to strike a happy medium. Is there some secret as to do this. C. Baltzagler e-mail: tpd743@windstream.net

SET CONTRAST AT ABOUT 75 PER CENT COLOUR 50 PER CENT BRIGHTNESS 40 PERCENT LEAVE TINT ALONE.
THIS IS A ROUGH GUIDE BUT I HOPE IT HELPS.FOR BETTER RESULTS USE A DVD LIKE RATATOUILLE AND USE THE SET UP MENU.

Pressing the menu button should bring up options to adjust the color ,tint,etc. look for antennae options or parental control options to lift the restricted channels. hope this helps.

Samsung HCN2446W -- Yellow/Greenish tint all over screen


That model should be HCN4226W, right? Because the other don't come-up. Sounds like the mirror may have moved. It's mounted on the upper part of the back of the T.V. Should be flat against the back. Check that. Then see if all 3 tubes are lighting up. Also possable the fluid leaked out.....but not likely. These sets are fairly robust. Do you remember jarring it in the drive home?? Did you have it laying down when you moved it?

ALOT OF BLUE ON THE SCREEN!!


Your TV most likely has one or more 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.

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.

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.

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.
