Question about Sylvania 202SL8 TV

1 Answer

Green Outline.... I get a green outline whenever I look at Black Text on my info screen, and I also noticed when watching family guy that the characters had a green outline as well, I tried adjusting the colors and everything else, but it did not work. Is there anyway of fixing this without having to take it to a repair shop?

THERE IS NO WAY YOU CAN FIX IT WITHOUT SENDING IT TO THE REPAIR SHOP BUT IF YOU ARE A DIY PERSON YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO FIX IT- ON THE NECK OF THE TUBE THERE IS MAGNETIC RINGS WHICH MUST BE ADJUSTED THE PROCEDURE IS CALLED CONVERGENCE WHICH IS NORMALLY CARRIED OUT BY SERVICE TECHNICIANS

Samsung LCD TV Image Retention...I Think


I have not noticed that with my set, Sony Bravia 2007 1080I.

Uh, I have a bigger problem though...

I had just paused my live tv for about 40 minutes on abaseball game and now I have green burn in.
I'm in the middle of searching the net for solutions. I have tried:

pure white screen for 30 minutes (no change)
"fuzz" for 1 hour (no change)
turn TV off for 12 hours (no change)
I'll now try to power down fully for 12 hours and see what happens.

Burn the cd, install the driver, and then start using your webcam!

Yes, Convergence settings should be tried first before any color adjustment or any fluid changes are done. Remember that there are 3 colors to notice. Red, Green, Blue. The Green is the only one that you can not move with an adjustment The Red and Blue is ligned up on green. Some cases it does matter how linear the Green color is across the board, just how close you get the blue and red on top of green is what matters.

Green outline


dm21,
This particular unit has a common problem with coolant contamination. It is slightly possible - only slightly - that the focus block needs adjusting, but I'd first suspect coolant contamination... This is one job I would recommend that you attempt. On a scale of 1 to 10, and ten being the most difficult, this is a 10 even for a qualified shop with all the best of equipment.
My advice, take it in and have it repaired...
Bill
