The tv picture looks like should be wachting it whith 3d glasse


This is a very common failure on Projection TV sets. Its called a convergence failure. Here are some common symptoms.
  • 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.
The other common problem is cloudy lens fluid. After many years the coolant in the blue and green lens will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, bright white, etc. You may even see halos around objects on the screen.

You can see some example photos and find a solution here on Fixya.

The green CRT may be intermittently bad or the focus screen block. Certain sony's are common to have bad CRT's. When the screen goes green does the set shut off?

50inch toshiba color problem


Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.

The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded overs.

Anything that is suppose to be white is green.


Check all of your connections, if they check out then the most likely cause would be a failure of the Optical Block.
