3D Looking Colors

Hi,

I am having the same problem with my Panasonic TV. It appears we are watching a 3D movie. The TV was fine last week and then I turned it on to a 3D picture. The sides are white. I have gone multiple times to "Setup" and tried to realign the red, blue and green. The green is really off on the convergence option. Someone I know mentioned tube may have blown. I don't know. Is this fixable without a too expensive repair? Time for a new TV?

No picture showing after power on.


If this does not happen with other devices then I would say try a new video cable. HDMI cables can get very picky. If this happens at anytime then the inverter in TV is going out.

How do I view movies in 3D on the Mitsubishi WD-Y65?


WD-Y65 is NOT a 3D ready TV. You either have to change the TV to see the movie in 3D, or just watch it in 2D in you current TV.

I have the same TV as yours. Current I connect a desktop PC to the TV via DVI port, and I watch Avatar using colorcode 3D(Amber/Blue) with Stereoscopic Player from www.3dtv.at It might be a way for you to enjoy 3D without change the whole thing, but it's an entire different topic.

Hooked up PS3 to system and when watching DVD's the right side of the picture is blurry and appears doubled, like an old 3D movie without the red and blue glasses. When watching TV everything looks fine.


All projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video or dead set) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both.

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

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. In some cases the TV will also not show any video. 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 projection 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 pics of convergence problems.

Common 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.

GE Rear Projection TV set with "3D" colors


This is a common problem that was NOT caused by watching the 3D movie! Bad solder connections on the high voltage transformer have caused a solder in fuse to blow. The transformer will have to be resoldered and the fuse replaced.
