Projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Below are more details for both items. Also, complete repair kits with instructions and repair support are avail from site such as www.TvRepairKits.com

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. 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.

Limited color on screen primarily blue, white and green. I use to be able to fix by giving the screen a gentle wiggle but color spectrum is gone.


Sounds like you have a bad joint on the tv circuit board somewhere.There is another thing it could be if you have a scart lead connected. Pull it out and check to make sure none of the pins are dissapearing inside the plug. Sometimes they slip inside. Check both ends of the lead.

There was an electrical storm close to our home, we had a flash of lightning. Now we can't get a picture to show. The menu works, but nothing from satellite, Wii and DVD. Is there a way to reset...


Hi, You should have unplugged your set in a storm like that. You should have had a surge protector too. I believe you will be looking at a big repair bill. Good luck.
