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?


Not convergence issue from description and if lens did not help when cleaned have a close look at the mirror as well to make sure not grimy or dirty, usually can peek in from the rear and up to examine it.From the age of the set it could also ... Pioneer Projection Televisions

Hello, I have a Toshiba 57H84R rear projection tv that has developed a problem. Occasionally the screen would turn bright blue for a couple of seconds and then go blank (dark screen, like it had shut off). The red power button would go from a steady red light to blinking continuously and would have to be unplugged, then plugged back in to get it to come on again. One time it did this, there was a bright blue circle in the center of the screen and now there is a permanent yellow spot in the cente


I am 100% sure that this is not an issue with the CRT board(the tiny board attached behind the CRT's in this case the blue CRT).

Replaced lamp on my samsung 7178 dlp. Worked for about a month. Shuts off regularly now, and lights indicate the lamp cover is loose. Reseated and tightened. Worked fine for another month, now it shuts off 3 or 4 times in a 3 hour period. Lights indicate loose rear panel, but could there be anything else that causes this. Picture is fine for contrast and brightness and the new lamp is only a couple of months old.
