Having problems with your Projection Televisions ?

I have a Hitachi 51F710S model and it has a red tint to the picture. I've tried everything on the video settings and its the same. Blue and green also stand out more than other colors. My daughter watches this show everyday and the colors are all out of whack. I don't know what to do i'm getting frustrated.



Answers :

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. Repair kits with instructions are also avail from www.TvRepairKits.com

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....

\012
    \012
  • Screen looks 3D \012
  • Colors don't line up \012
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu. \012
  • Screen is bowed or warped. \012
  • 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.

My LG led has had several problems, it started out with the left half of the screen flipping as if viewed from a mirror with the right part of the screen normal. After that, it displayed vertical colored lines (blue, yellow, black, white, etc) which went away and now it shows a vertical bar about 4 inches across that looks darker than the rest of the picture. I also noticed images burning in everywhere except that bar. I know it's a lot of issues but any help would be appreciated.

My 36' Philips Magnavox Smart Plus Series television always shows up so dim whenever I change it to the "AUX" ch when playing PS3. It will be normal for a second on that ch, but I notice it will get dim after a few seconds. I've tried messing with the brightness and all that stuff, nothing seemed to work. It's driving me crazy because whenever I watch a DVD it just shows up way too dark and dull. I got the TV as a hand me down from a friend of mine, and he's had it for awhile. When watching

The Panasonic plasma model I have is th-50phd6. It links 7 times. How much to fix, you know labor, parts and time. I would like to see ido can repair it. I bought the tv for the stand...do you know how hard it was to find a Ty-st05-k? Good lord... any ways found a deal for 100 I got a th-50phd6 and the stand. The gentleman that sold it to me gave me the 7 time red light blinking scenario. So if I were to fix it for minimal cost not only would this have been a deal but more of a steal. Please


The problem is most likely a bad SC board, if you can find the board online it will probably run you between $250 - $300 for the part. A repair facility will charge you between $400 - $500 total to fix the unit if that is all that is wrong with it. ... Panasonic TH-42PWD6UY 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television
