Question about Sony KP-43HT20 43" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
On the left side of the tv there are double images, green and purplish-pink colors. Also when you go from Video 1, Video 2, Video 3, etc., the words and numbers are horziontially crooked. The color and picture on the right side of the screen is fine.
Projection sets have two very common problems.
The first common problem is convergence
These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.
When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
