Projection TVblue and red wavey lines and distorted picture... - 2_bing.gif 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.

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, , JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer, Hitachi, Zenith2_bing.gif, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit from the link below.

Common Symptoms include....

  • Screen looks 3D2_bing.gif
  • 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 - TV may also make a chirping noblue and red wavey lines and distorted picture... - 49abec3.jpg/ul>Here are somblue and red wavey lines and distorted picture... - f0add3d.jpghttp://www.fixya.com/support/r2861467-solution_video_looking_whiteish_dull#" >photos of convergence problems.

    Here is a quick test....

    Using your original remote go-to the settings menu then goto the convergence section.

    Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

    You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right.blue and red wavey lines and distorted picture... - 2_bing.gif/>If you can't move them in all directions or cant move them far enough your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

    Note: If you TV has as flash2_bing.gif focus or magic focus button only try pressing the button. If it fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a solution

    You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses.
    This is a a fairly easy DIY job if you know what you are doing. If you have never done this before we would advise calling a shop or if you want to do it yourself get a complete kit with instructions and support from www.TvRepairKits.com

I have a Mitsubishi WS-65869 65 in. Rear Projection Television and it has created a wavey line and has distorted the image. i have a picture of it i can send. Any help. i can send pictures of screen.

If you see separation of colors (red, green) in this wavey line most likely you have problem with convergence circuit. Two convergence amps have to be replaced. They located in a middle of the TV boards attached to big aluminum radiator and they part number starts with letters "STK".
I would recommend to let professional with this repair. Should cost you about $250-$300.
Regards.

Green/Blue distorted Colors

Color issues are harder to solve without seeing the problem. It sound like the red amplifier on the crt board is bad. Is there any red in the picture at all? If not, that will be you problem
