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
, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer
, Hitachi, Zenith
, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith instructions from the links below.
