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. 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.

My sansui rear projection tv's picture is concave with convergence problem also how can i fix it

The convergence can become unstable if you have a failing colour wheel if a dlp set. the same thing can happen if your lamps is beginning to fail the poor frequency of light from bulb disrupts picture. Convergence is usually done by entering service technician code into set through the remote and entering the engineering sub menu and if you don't know what your doing or have a colour pattern generator you could make things considerably worse .

Cannot get the set to focus. Colors are blured

Sounds like a convergence misalignment, go into the tv menu and look for other adjustments sub menu and follow the on screen directions,this is a simple procedure but will take a little time to get it adjusted just right. Directions are also on pages 20 and 21 in your owners manual. Good luck!

If you don't have experience with soldering, a board replacement solution would be best. You can damage the pads that the parts solder to which will cause you more headaches.

Color convergence out on rc 52 inch projection tv

If it is way out, it is more that an adjustment. It takes a crosshatch generator to do the convergence.

There is a manual convergence setting. Press Menu until you see the option of convergence. Save settings by pressing Power until you see Save Ok. You can exit the convergence screen by pressing the PIP button. 0 reloads the convergence. It will periodically go out of wack again.
