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.

I have a Westinghouse television, model #SK-32H540S. When you turn it on both the picture and sound come on (like normal) after about 10 seconds the picture turns off. I had a local television repair company check it out. They told me it needed a new panel. They cannot find one. Do you have a panel or know where I might get one? I'd appreciate your help. Thank you, Mary Jo Penry

I have a Samsung LCD TV - Model number LE37B679, which is great, but I'm having and issue with it. I can be watching ok for a while and then the picture goes & I'm left with a black screen. The sound remains. I find I have to turn the power off for 30 minutes or so then I get the picture back. Does anyone have any idea as to what might be wrong. I read something about a T-CON Video board issue, but I'm not technically expert enough to know if this is a red herring or not. Please help

I recently received a 42 in Vizio LCD Tv with Model number Gv42I. To get to the main point. There is no picture but there is sound to it, and it powers on with the change of the orange light to the white. But that's it. So i was wondering if anyone has the same problem and has a solution or know what it could be? I know nothing about tvs. So if you could help out that would be totally awesome!
