Projection TV manufactured in September 1995.
The TV has a dark cast over it (watching tv or movies). I've navigated through the menu and I've been unable to solve the issue.
I've searched online for the manual and that avenue was unsuccessful!
If you can remove the screen you probably need to clean the mirror. if that is the case, don't use windex use a very mild solution of dish liquid (3-4 drops to the quart) then you will have to wash it several times with that. any harsher solution will remove the mirror surface. use a very soft , lint free cloth but not terry material. your bath room mirror has the "silver on the back side this one if it glass has the "silver on the front. if it is mylar don't press hard or it will streach and distort the pix. good luck

ll projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both.
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. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some pics of convergence problems.
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.
NOT EXPENSIVE POWER SUPPLY PARTS ARE NEEDED TO BE REPLACED . ONLY A TECH WHO , HAS EXPERIENCE ON THIS TV MODEL AND THE KNOWLEDGE ABOUT THIS PROBLEM ,COULD FIX THE TV RIGHT THE FIRST TIME. OTHERWISE REPLACE POWER DEFLECTION BOARD ,PARTS AVAILABLE AT PARTSTORE OR SIMILAR COMPANIES
