Although I am not incredibly familiar with your model, There is most likely a small board mounted above the others near the crts, there is a small red connector with a blue wire if you unhook it it will remove power from the convergence IC's and if they are shorted it might come up with conv out, will need a new module.

Common problem known as convergence. The most common reason is the failure of convergence ics. these ics fail all the time because there big and get fairly hot. there is a possiblity that it can be reconverged if the convergence cuircit is not damaged

You will need to replace the two Convergence ICs STK392-040 they are located on large heatsinks on the large board on the right side of your TV. You can order replacement ICs at the following link, and They will also include free instalation instructions plus provide free tech support if needed. here is the link

Extensive analysis revealed this unit to be for 120V 60Hz regions. If you use it in a region where the mains supply is 220/240V 50Hz then it won't work. In addition, the PSU will overheat, with possible damage to other modules.
One possible solution is a 120V 60Hz inverter, else Samsung may be able to provide the correct PSU for 220/240V.

This is a convergence problem that should be relatively easy to resolve, I am assuming that the set is new to you rather than new. If new, it should be under warranty and if opened would void the warranty. If new to you and you can solder, you should be able to fix this. First, realize that there are potentially dangerous high voltages present inside the set even when unplugged. Locate the convergence ICs (large black ICs attached to a heatsink and marked STKxxx) and resolder the pins. That may resolve the problem. If not, then replace the ICs. Check the area for small valued resistors that may be defective as well.

Keep us posted.

Tv gets light blueand stays that way...comes back to perfect color the back to blue X-RAy looking it is a samsung pcl545r

Behind the screen, there are three color tubes: Red Green and Blue.

Unfortunately, rear projection screens often have these problems and the tubes do go out after extended use.

Take the television to a TV Repair shop to have this fixed. But in the long run, this may end up costing you a lot more than if you would purchase a new TV. The light tubes are fairly expensive.

Philips 50P8341 50 in. Rear Projection Television most of the color is red

Usually if you remove the speaker grill in front there is a convergence panel that can be carefully removed. If you look inside you should see a small rectangular block with six controls. They are labelled focus and screen, and red, blue and green. Adjust only the screen controls very carefully and slowly. I would recommend reducing the red slightly brfore raising the green and then blue until the picture looks acceptable. Be sure to center the on screen controls before starting.

Color problem

Did you try alignment of color convergence in setting up. Try this
1 Press MENU
2 Select SET UP
4 Select screen mode ZOOM this accesses the center convergence adjustment.Press set/enter
5 Use arrow keys to aline the red cross to the white cross.Press set/enter
6 Use arrow keys to alingn the blue line in the same manner. Once adjustment is complete press MENU to turn the menu off.
I hope this helps if you cant move the red or blue lines you face the same problem I face. I still havent gotton any solutions to my post about being unable to adjust the red line.You could also call Pioneer's help line 800-421-1404.

"Red means your set is heading towards being dead" is the general rule I've always followed. Red means there is some serious internal issues. There is one thing that might mean its not serious. If you have component hooked up, check the cables to make sure its hooked up properly with the correct colors on the correct color inputs. that can make a huge difference. If you have them incorrectly hooked up it can turn the image all red on your screen. Otherwise, it appears your set is headed towards needing some service. This is not something you can just fix on your own. Is your product still under the manufacturer's warranty or an ext. warranty? Good luck. keep us posted!
