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 sony 65 inch kp65wv600 images look bowed - 69189a5.png your need to fix it. See below for a fix

If after the Flash Focus™ feature has been performed, the colors on the FLASH FOCUS screen do no line up (converge), press the FLASH FOCUS button on the television to begin the cycle again. If the colors on the FLASH FOCUS screen continues to appear misaligned, service will be required .
NOTE: It is recommended to perform the Flash Focus™ feature about thirty minutes after the television has been turned on and keep the room as dark as possible.

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.

Subject

Video bowed in, convergence out, PS5001

Symptoms / Customer Description
Video bowed in and convergence is out.
[Primary Symptom Code: 1436 ]

Solution

Found PS5001 on G board was open.

HQ Comments: Could be cold solder joint on one of the STK IC's on the D Board. They run hot and the solder connection might have broken down causing intermittent condition which could have opened the fuse on the
-22v line.
