Having problems with your Projection Televisions ?

My Toshiba TV, is having picture and color problems. The color is lost, at times, the the picture looks like a negative. Sometimes, the color returns, but the contrast is bad.


\015 Turn on the TV. The focus is off and the image a little blurry. Most of the time, there is no color, and the images look like a negative. As the TV warms up, some color returns, but image is still a little blurry, and the contrast is not normal. Sometimes (very once in a while), the image and color is normal when turned on. Later, the color is lost, images get blurry, and looks like a negative. Sometimes, the entire screen goes completely black. Then, returns again, but still a negative.\015

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.


You need to change the lamp out, it builds up a internal resistance, and pulls your voltaged down, it will get to the point where you TV will not come on at all. Replace your lamp, you can get one at ... Samsung HLP4674W 46" Rear Projection HDTV

I have Sony's 43 inch Projection TV, its model no is KP-ES43 ME1. Problem with it is that it has lost Blue color from its pictures. Anything that is of Blue color turns into different shades of Green color. But one important thing which i would like to share is that when we turns on PIP (Pictue-in-Picture) mode, images on the right side of the TV screen looks absolutely fine but Pictures on the Left side of the screen still have the same problem. I want to know what is the real problem and its

When I turn on the set, the right half of the screen is distorted. It flickers, different colors move from center to far right of screen, double images that appear as negitives and sometimes that half of the screen is very dark. Sometimes it will clear up for a second or two then go back to the problem. When the problem first started, it only lasted for approx 10-15 minutes then the picture was great. Now it takes 1-2 hours for it to clear up. Once it clears, I get a great picture. The lef

Toshiba 50HP66 Plasma TV Problem - TV comes on but no picture. OSD shows up as vertical stripes on black background. picture sometimes black, sometimes multi-colored verticle stripes. Should I change the scaler board or the control board

I have a HP 4260N Plasma TV. About 4-5 years old. A week ago the remote would not turn the TV on, and there was no volume. I contacted my cable company and thinking it might be a remote problem they had me reset the TV and the Cable Box. So now, the remote and TV are working correctly from an on/off perspective, but the picture is horrible. Very faint, no color or limited color, and a bit fuzzy. Is this the dreaded bad YSUS Board problem??

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

When turning on tv picture looks like you have bad reception then after a few minutes picture gets clear, problem started a few months ago and tv was bought nearly 3 years ago. is this an indication of further problems later on or nothing to worry about?


Hi,This is not a good news. There could be few probabilities, however more often on this set it is either faulty T conn board ( LCD control board ) or faulty mainboard. As it is already 3 years old, so it is already out of warranty. I wou ... Sony KDL-32M3000 32 in. LCD Television

On my HD1080 Mitsubishi projection flat screen the picture is bowed on top and bottem and it look as if the projectors themselves are offset, but the picture is clearer as you come toward the center. If I smack the side the picture will sometimes come back into focus. But the picture will soon after go back out of focus and sharp swiggly lines streak across horizonally. How can I fix this problem and how much might it cost.


You have poor contacts and or dry joints. Resoldering on the convergeance panel and powersupply/line timebase board will probably fix it.It should take less than an hour in labour terms. ... Mitsubishi WS-65809 65" Rear Projection Television

I have a 43 inch samsung DLP tv 2004 model# HLN4365W, I was getting a black and white picture, so i replaced the color wheel which was broken. It worked fine for a couple of days then there was no picture, i have sound. The lamp is working - no errors on front panel. If i look in the back of the tv i can see light coming out of the lens, but no picture on the screen. What could be the problem? Thanks


No picture on a DLP when you can see the lamp is working is ALWAYS the DLP chip. BECAUSE you recently replaced the color wheel, i suspect that the LVDS/data cable to the light engine was not plugged in well and has come loose. I suggest checking and ...

Hello there. I need some help with my tv and any help will be much appreciated. I hava a samsung LE46M87BD with a picture problem. I'm getting some black patches on the screen. This patches are not there all the time and sometimes if you tap the back of the tv they go away and then few minutes later come again. This happens from a 1/4 of the screen down. Googling it it looks like it could be the tcon but not sure. Anyone with same problem and sorted it? Thanks

Having a problem with a Mitsubishi WD-73831 DLP TV, 4 years old this month. Over the past month the picture quality has deteriorated significantly. Any areas of solid color are blotchy, highlights are completely blown out and often faces have bright highlighted areas. Darker colors and black areas have red/pink or greenish splotches. It gets worse the longer the TV is on starting after about 10 - 20 minutes. Within 1 - 2 hours it has deteriorated so badly that it isn't worth watching. Th
