Polaroid Polaview 211E Multimedia Projector Logo

RGB not aligned so I get thin red vertical stripes displaced to right of icons

Hi, I've tried all sorts of adjustments but there isn't an option on the Polaview 211 to adjust the positions of R, G, and B channels separately. Somehow my RGB got out of alignment so I have red "ghosts" of my images to the right of the proper images. Checked all connections. Is this the lens, or lamp, or what? Thanks.

If you are handy with allen wrenches, quality screw drivers, and the like, you might 'try' opening up the can of worms and gently manipulating the red LCD panel (it will be obvious--a magenta color when off), by slightly loosening the holding screws, then moving--ever so slightly, the panel untill the ghost disappears. Do not do this though, untill you mark the present position on the top and bottom of the LCD panel. Take pictures, far and close-ups, as you go so you can reassemble the unit. The typically three LCDs can be located by finding the prism cube, located under the circuit board, and just before the output lens. Be patient, and have fun. I did this with an 'out of wack' throw away, and now it is just as enjoyable as my 'dimmer' HDTV projector. Even side by side, from 8 feet away, when both are making 72" images, the HDTV is barely clearer, Jon.

How do I unlock the setup options for horizontal & vertical adjustments on my 55" HDT 51M 2006 Plasma TV won't let me access the horizontal or vertical options in setup in RGB 1 mode.

You have to enter the service mode option to it, to do horizontal and vertical adjustments. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Viewing it in "Mosaic" or "Magazine" will make surf easy. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience. Do a search by type in the brand name of your device at its search box.

LG Flatron L1930B lcd monitor - 3 vert. stripes, center one dead

sounds like the pixel controllers have gone bad or one or more of the color (RGB, RED, GREEN, BLUE) controllers have gone out. this is quite common in lcd monitors/tvs and is usually caused by pressure on the edges of the screen (you grabbed it too tightly when moving the monitor) or just faulty controllers. they are expected to eventually go bad, ask LG for yourself, they will tell you the same thing. If you just bought it, that can be considered a mfr defect that they will replace, IF IT IS IN WARRANTY!!!!! Unfort. there is no fix due to seal that placed on the actual lcd panel inside the plastic casing. Youd spend more money trying to find the part and install it than just buying a new monitor. hate to say it but im an avid gamer and have gone through about 4 lcd monitors in tha past 3 years due to everyday use

Philips Projection Screen TV Model PTV915 Horizontal Alignment

Problem solved, needed to get the universal remote i was using set up with the proper code. Once I did that I was able to use the remote to set up the single & multi-zone Red & Blue Alignment.  I also pulled the back plate off and manually adjusted the RGB focus knobs. It seems to be working just fine now.
Thanks to all the other posts.
