My HD TV is no longer showing a clear picture

The picture is terrible lately on my HD TV. When a dark scene comes up it glows blue and you can't hardly see anything that is going on. The picture is also cloudy looking and not very clear at all and there is no difference between my HD channels and my regular channels. Could this be something as easy as the cables?? or is the TV going out?

Sure sounds like the CRT fluid is cloudy and needs to be replaced.
If its not the fluid the convergence chips are bad.

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 My HD TV is no longer showing a clear picture - 2c07611.pngad 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 email and they will put one together for you. Their kits includes photo instruction guides, original Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.

Delay in lighting from dark to light scenes and then back.


Look for auto-contrast or something. Turn it off. Picture will be steady. I hate this feature in most flat panel tv's and it's not needed. You may have to set static contrast after that.

I believe there may be another setting, it has to do with auto contrast which can make the TV seems to have high contrast ratio but sometime it does not work right, espically on the scene with dark sky with stars, someitme it will will reduce the brightness to make black real black and you can loger see the stars in the scene. I forget the name of this setting, it may be in the user manual. Do you see that in TV HD mode in other movies with a lot of dark scenes?

Picture is very blue, especially in dark scenes.


Sony TVs has an Optical Block issue. If there is an issue with the optical block, then there will be green, blue patches or tint on the TV display. Try resetting the TV to the factory settings and try Power resetting the TV. Turn Off the TV and remove the power plug from the wall outlet for 1 minute and reconnect it and check the operation. If the issue still persists, then TV may require service. You can contact the Customer relations team and check for the available options. Sony had repaired free of cost for such issues. Hence, contact the customer relations.

If you look directly into the three picture tubes you will probably see a haze in the blue one. This is fairly common but requires a knowledgeable service man to take care of.

51'' Philips rear projection TV with color issues


Philips has had a big problem with there coolant fluid becoming cloudy. The only way to clear it up is to have the fluid changed. With every projection crt tv there is a layer of cooling fluid between the face of the crt and the lens. This coolant cools the face of the crt. Over time the coolant breaks down and the light coming through gets distorted. The crt's have to be removed from the set to do this.

Picture getting dark


My jvc 27" tv was so dark I could hardly see any night scenes, even with the bright all the way on. If you push the sleep button, let go, then hold down the video and display (together), the service menu will come on. Scroll down to #7 (too dark) and adjust the brightness there. Works immediately. Good luck.
