Most likely the problem is bad capacitors on the video module of unit.If you take the back off you should see basically 3 circuit boards-Power Supply,Main Board,T-Con Board.Inspect the main board and the power Supply Boards for bad capacitors,in most cases the bad ones will usually have a bulge on the top of the capacitor,a normal cap will have a flat top,if you find any of the caps have a slight or big bulge,as if they were getting ready to explode,they need to be replaced with the same microfarads and voltage rating which is printed on the side of each cap.Replace them one at a time,you will need a soldering gun ,solder and solder wick to properly do the job.You can find all the tools you need at your local radio shack.The solder wick is used to extract the old solder so you can put a new cap in,the caps will have 2 legs.Also you must look at the cap and line up the negative side of the cap to the negative symbol on the board,there should also be a plus symbol where the cap goes in on the board.Good Luck and let me know if you need more information.

Projection sets have two very common problems.

The first common problem is convergence


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...

*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

The color on our Sony tv is now distorted. The


if this is an older tv and your state might have changed to digital programming then i would suggest trying to look at the back of the set and see if you have anything to fix this problem or you might want to CHECK AND SEE IF YOU HAVE VIDEO ON or CABLE on or TV on. Sometimes if you have Antenna switch to cable then your channels would be red and picture distorted. change the antenna to air for tv. or from tv to cable.

Sound like color problems, could be convergence going out. Not quite sure of yellow color, but you could be loosing one of the 3 colors red blue green, this could be why you see yellow.
