There is double vision at times, then it goes away.


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 pic
*White looking pic
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking pic

Been gone 3 months, came home turned on tv and had a pic for 5 min,it went out, sound stays on and can change channels but no pic. Turned on again after leaving set off for an hour, again, sound but no...


Had the same issue sound but no picture, try wiggling the connections to the back of the tv, if that does not work try using a different hook-up, I ended going from the component jacks to the DVI hook-up and this took care of the problem, hope this helps!!

SMELLING, HISSING AND NOT TURNING ON....


Whenever there is a a spark or a flash it generally means high votage(HV) is arching either from the flyback, one of the CRT's or HV splitter/Focus block where the HV is created - It will be easy to diagnose but probably expensive to repair. Parts costs- Flyback and HV block $100-200 and CRT over $300

The tv is showing red lines on the screen.


These are retrace lines. The screen on the red tube is turned up too high. Inside the set there are 6 knobs. 3 for focus & 3 for screen. Turn down the red screen until lines are gone. These knobs are usually found by pulling of the front panel.

Have a denon avr 588 surround reciever that does not stay on the on/stand by button has a red light that is flashing it powers on for about 3 seconds then shuts off and then the red light starts flahing


this could be two wires touching on the back connections. one wire touching another ...just one will do this! look close and causing a short (its shutting off is a safety feature so the unit does not overheat)
