I wouldn't use Windex as that tends to destroy the lenticular lens. Instead just use warm water or get plastic-glass cleaner (usually a foam) and use that but, water is the cheaper alternative.

You are going to have to adjust the three screens in the front of the set behind the speaker cover. You will need to adjust the Red, Green, and the Blue all to look like a B & W picture so turn down the color or put in a B & W movie from a DVD or VCR. Then adjust each screen till you get the best blend and a good grey scale. Grey scale is the best B & W you can get on the TV set. The screen has two surfaces on it. The outside part goes up and down and is called the lenticular screen, and the inside part has round circular pattern too it and is called the freznel lens. The circular screen and the outside screen can be cleaned with a car polish cloth called a Shammey. Use deluted windex and only wipe the rag in the direction of the screen, eather up or down or circular. Good Luck

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. The power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some pics of convergence problems.

What you will need to do is convergence. You can get a repair kit from TvRepairKits.com . It includes replacement parts,step by step instructions, support, etc.

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.

3d tv!!!


Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.

The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded overs.

I turn it on then off and it keeps going on and off


There are two possibilitie that I can think of for this model set. There have been some instances where coolant from one or more of the projection tubes leak out and drip onto the PC board causing intermittent problems. If not that, then you could have a defective capacitor or intermittent solder connection causing the problem. Capicator C13105 - a 1uf/100v Cap Located Near U13101 Syscon IC has caused this symptom also. Hope you can find someone willing to come out in the cold to fix it for ya.
