NOTE: Manual Convergence settings ARE LOST if the customer returns to AUTO Magic Focus mode. (More Details) this situation is normal. Bottom line: This is caused by two issues, The Centering is off of any or all CRTs. (Don't forget Red and Blue Offset values). The Horizontal Size needs to be changed by increasing H. Size by 20mm. Readjust the Horizontal Size to the NEW specifications. These are different that the original Service Manual. They have been increased by 20mm on 51", 57" and by 25mm on the 65". Before replacing DCUs, Please CHECK and confirm if any of the three color center alignments are off and readjust the Horizontal Size to the New specifications.. TO CHECK. Clear DCU data by holding down the DCAM "Service Only Switch" and then POWER. Make sure the Green is centered. Make sure the Red and Blue is offset from center with respective offset value according to the SM information. Readjust the Horizontal Size to the NEW specifications. These are different that the original Service Manual. They have been increased by 20mm on the 51" and the 57" and on the 65" it's increased by 25mm. There IS NO NEED to replace DCUs. The DCUs are not defective...All that is needed is to confirm the Centering Adjustment for the three colors and adjust the Horizontal Size to the NEW specifications. Adjust if any color is found to be out of adjustment specifications. If you don't understand this then you need live chat!

ABSOLUTELY! Purchase a 'Y' adapter from your local hardware store and attach the hot and cold lines on the washer to the 'Y' attached to the cold faucet. You won't be able to wash in warm or hot without changing the hoses, though.

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.

Kenmore Elite calypso 21086 leaves dirt streaks on clothes


Run the hottest & fullest cycle possible - without a load - and add a grease remover - like goo-gone. Fatty tissues build up inside the tub - and can be released on hot cycles if HOT wasn't used very often.

It is recommended to run a HOT load every 2 weeks or so to avoid these buildups and staining of clothes.

Car over heating


1)check coolant level if low ,check for leaks,examine all hoses for cracks and wear also chek thermostat housing for leaks,if no leaks. 2)when engine is hot use your hand to check temp. of upper hose if hose is cool replace the therostat. also make sure the cooling fan runs when engine gets warm. otherwise bad water pump drive belt or belt not adjusted correctly,ignition timing incorrect,radiator core blocked(flush&fill) of radiator grill dirty, radiator cap not maintaining proper preassure(have it pressure check at a shop) good luck

Why does it keep running out of color ink, while printing only Black and White?


Whilst you rarely print in colour, its important to know that you should try to print in colour at least once a week. This will reduce the risk of your colour nozzles blocking up.

Many people have gone out to replace their 'hardly used' colour cartridges when they dont work, thinking that they have dried up, when infact its simply blocked nozzles.

If you want to keep your colour nozzles and ink ready to run, just do a full colour alignment every 1-2 weeks. Minimal ink usage there and you keep your Canon MP780 running well!

Going to the console browser instead of reading disc


Hi Morquea, I believe you have the PS2 Slim model. This model has a laser with plastic housing and when it tries to read a disc for along time like hours, the lens housing begins to melt. You may be experiencing this and the process of melting is slow, so no way of knowing what wil happen since the laser adjusts itself to focus in on the media. One day or one disc might work, and another wont. I normally see Blue colored PS2 discs work and silver colored disc not work. This is a tell tale signof melting. Sony did not buiuld the slim as tough as the previous fat Versions. This helps them save money on Shipping and raw metarial costs. When the Laser automatically adjusts focus all day, it gets extremely hot and melts. You need a new laser. I can solve your problem there by replacing the laser for you for $32 plus shipping. contact me through www.playstatiopnclinic.com.
