Having problems with your Projection Televisions ?

For the past couple days the color on our projection tv has been distorted. The yellow and blue are consistent, but the red and green seem to be lacking. We have tried adjusting the tint, but that does not help. The problem will last for a long period of time, but eventually the color returns to normal. Do you have any helpful information, please? Thank you, Gail Tenney



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 sony trinitron color tv (model KV-XA21 M83) has been having a problem over the last one year. The TV mechanic on his last visit was unable to diagnose the problem as it started working when he was present to check the problem. Now it blinks 2 times (red color) and does not turn on. I would be very grateful if you could suggest what needs to be done.

I think our TV is around five years old now. Over the last year we have had the same problems about four times the last three this year. It just turns its self off. The red light is left flickering for a short time and the picture disappears. You can turn it back on but it will only remain on for about 5mins before it turns its self off. I have taken it in 3 times to be repaired. They have talked about cleaning out the cooler fans replacing ? safety switch which has helped for a short time. Whe

Hi. I have an LG 47LB9DF-UA LCD TV with a video problem. Originally, I had problem with horizontal lines, accompanied with a lag.

I have an Expressvu 4100. Within the last month my receiver is not picking up the signal of the remote unless the remote is directly in front of the receiver in front of the infrared reader. I have changed the batteries out twice, reset the receiver several times, unplugged the unit, waiting 5+ minutes and still no luck. As an added note, a couple of times within that same period, the remote did work as it should for an evening but it would not last for the following evening. Any suggestions?

I have a Samsung HLP 4674w DLP. The picture started to lose color and look like a negative image. Then it would get scrambled and eventually go out. Powering on and off sometimes fixed it, but only temporarily. Sometimes it would also turn off and on by itself. I thought it may be the lamp so I replaced it, but it did not fix the problem. Next I thought it may be the color wheel so I replaced that, but the problem did not go away. Also when this happens the Power switch will not turn the TV off.

My RCA 52 inch rear projector had started turning itself off last. This happenend several times but we were able to turn it back on with no problem. Friday it was on for several hours and I turned it off. About two hours later, I tried to turn it on and it kept the green on switch for about 4 sec and turn off. Then it would turn green for the same length of time with a "SIZZLING BACON" sound. It would try to restart itself one more time after turning itself off. Is this tv FRIED?.

Our BenQ tv was given to us by a friend because he was having issues with it and didn't want it anymore, so we don't have a user manual. Approximately 10 min after I put the tv on, the screen will go black but the sound remains on. No picture but sound remains. The only way I can get the picture back is to turn the tv off then on again. This will sometimes happen up to 7 times within a 15 min time period and will eventually stay on again after I've been turning the tv on and off, on and off,

Hi my name is Anthony Grech from Malta. Last week on Tuesday i had delivered at my home the 51 inch 3d plasma that I bought from our local agent in Malta.This is not the first time as I have loads of Samsung devices at home and i was always satisfied with the products, since now. My problem is that I have no 3d glasses with the 3d tv purchased last Tuesday. Is this possible? Is it possible nowadays buying a 3d plasma without having the glasses to watch it?


Oh yes it is possible. There are called "add-on sales" within marketing. The kit will be nearly $200-$300 for the accessories needed to watch your 3d tv. This is why it is SO important to ask the BIG questions before a purchase. ... Samsung Flat Panel Televisions
