Having problems with your Projection Televisions ?

My blue and green coloring is messed up on my Mitsubishi Medallion. I can't get it to have both colors normally, it has to almost be one or the other. Is this just a contrast issue, or something

Answers :

Projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Below are more details for both items. Also, complete repair kits with instructions and repair support are avail from site such as 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....
  • 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. The power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some pics of convergence problems.

What you will need to do is convergence. You can get a repair kit from TvRepairKits.com . It includes replacement parts,step by step instructions, support, etc.

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.

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from TvRepairKits.com . It includes replacement coolant,step by step instructions, support, etc.

I have a Pioneer SD-532HD5 Projection TV in which the picture is clear but dark and the colors appear weak- better color if a cartoon video. I have adjusted the contrast to max with minimal benefit and cleaned the lenses with little benefit as well. Is this a CRT tube problem or a STK-392 -110 convergence chip problem or something else. I have successfully changed convergence chips in a Toshiba TV before but do not know what to do next. Any ideas?

??? My LG 50PN4500 TV has a strange one-time issue, I turned it on last night (was on standby) and a full screen "shadow" pattern of squares appeared? They were gray but I could see the colour programme still playing like normal behind them? Squares were about 1.5cm squared, each one was spaced about 2cm away from it's neighbouring squares- it was literally a completely symmetrical see-through pattern covering the whole screen. Anyone know what it was? I did change channels and run the DVD play

Color smeared I purchased this TV in 2004 and it has been great. It worked great last night but when I turned it on this morning there was a picture but there were large globs of color on the screen with a big purple one in the center of the screen. At the very left edge of the screen there was a thin vertical stripe that looked normal. There appeared to be a horizontal line through the middle of the screen. I assume that there is a technical problem. Thanks Tom - [email protected]

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.
