Poblems with colors lining up

Not sure exactly how to explain this so I'll put up a couple pictures as well. Everything is offset with a red color. Like, you'll see a logo and there will be a red imprint of it in the background. How can I fix this and how much will it cost? This started when my brother was playing Gears of War. Thanks.

Here are this pics:

A model and confirm actual brand.

A general answer: If red screen with trace (retrace it is called) lines the issue is either with a picture tube or the Video output circuit for that color.

The color red is offset from the color green


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. 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 and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link 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 - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Mitsubishi tv model wd 73727 and how to take tv apart to clean marrow


my mitsubishi 73" set is 4+ years old. all of a sudden the color is all wrong. after a couple of minutes of clear picture the colors change--blue is green and red is yellow. a little while later everything has a red tint to it and there is a line going down the center of the screen. to the left the picture is still relatively sharp, but the right hand side is terrible. I'm hoping this is just the lamp.

Philips 9P6040C 60 in. Rear projection


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. 

Here are some of the most common symptoms.
  • Screen looks 3D
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed in but stationary.
Solution:

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site http://www.TvRepairKits.com . They have put together a kit for your exact model. The kit includes a photo instruction guide, original Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, etc. Everything you need to fix it yourself. 

Hope this helps,

COLOR SHADOWS


Select each color. all you have to do is align it with white by using the directional arrow keys - Simple! For fun, Grab a pair of red and blue 3d glasses and offset the red and the blue channels. Yes, I have too much time on my hands. Good luck :)

Has a shadow on picture. Red, Green is not alligned


You need to set your convergence. Check your owner's manual on how to do it. I'm not sure the exact procedure on that model, but usually you can find it in the setup menu of the tv. What you're trying to do is line the red and the blue up perfectly with the green so that they all blend together to give you one picture.

Colors won't stay set


NOTE: Manual Convergence settings ARE LOST if the customer returns to AUTO Magic Focus mode. (More Details) this situation is normal. Bottom line: This is caused by two issues, The Centering is off of any or all CRTs. (Don't forget Red and Blue Offset values). The Horizontal Size needs to be changed by increasing H. Size by 20mm. Readjust the Horizontal Size to the NEW specifications. These are different that the original Service Manual. They have been increased by 20mm on 51", 57" and by 25mm on the 65". Before replacing DCUs, Please CHECK and confirm if any of the three color center alignments are off and readjust the Horizontal Size to the New specifications.. TO CHECK. Clear DCU data by holding down the DCAM "Service Only Switch" and then POWER. Make sure the Green is centered. Make sure the Red and Blue is offset from center with respective offset value according to the SM information. Readjust the Horizontal Size to the NEW specifications. These are different that the original Service Manual. They have been increased by 20mm on the 51" and the 57" and on the 65" it's increased by 25mm. There IS NO NEED to replace DCUs. The DCUs are not defective...All that is needed is to confirm the Centering Adjustment for the three colors and adjust the Horizontal Size to the NEW specifications. Adjust if any color is found to be out of adjustment specifications. If you don't understand this then you need live chat!
