It sounds like the red gun is off. Your tv uses three guns(red,green and blue) to make the picture. sometimes one of these guns shifts a little and the colors get messed up and there are shadows because the gun is still trying to make the image, it just doesnt line up. This is a pretty inexpensive problem that can be fixed by most any tv technician for a small fee. If your pretty confident in your electronics know how, google adjusting guns and your tv and that should yield something.

Red shadows of words on screen of projection TV


you have to go into the menue, and go under video settings, under advanced, then into convergence, when you get the white lines all over the screen, follow the directions and adjust the red so it lines back up, other wise , take the front bottom panel off the tv, look for the 6 little nobs, look at the ones on the left, they should agjust the red, thrn the top one untill the red is focused back in.

Blue shadows appear to be behind white objects


TV shows large red spot in middle of tv when dark show are on, you can see it more.  Now blue spots on upper right side too.  Spend way to much on this tv to have these kinds of problems only after 3 yrs.

Problems with my Mitsubishi hd1080


If the Blue lines are blurs or shadows, then your Convergence IC's are going or gone bad.
I have the same TV - it will be 4yrs. old in Dec. Mine started with Blue lines & shadows, then Red, Blue, Green Shadows. This is caused from over heating. The Convergence IC's have to be replaced.
I have had 3 TV Repair shops all quote me a price from $350. to $400. to repair. They all said 4 years is the usual life time for these IC's.
Replace the STK932-110amps with STK394-250-E or STK392-150 for greater reliability.
Use only Original Replacement Parts, there are some cheaper but won't last and can't take the heat.
If you are a "do-it-yourselfer" here is a link with the directions and pics.

Not sure, but looks like blue and red shadows around words on the screen


Al, bring up your convergence grid (look in menu for it) and I think you`ll find that the set is out of convergence, if you can adjust the red up & down and the blue up & down your ok, if they won`t move in one or both directions the convergence IC`s will have to be changed out, hope this helps, BMW Rider

Red & green lines


Sounds like you have hardware failure in the convergence circuit. Some combination of the IC's, fuses, and/or resistors has failed. Repair cost is $250-$400 parts & labor
