SOURCE: Double Vision Pentax 10x50 PCF III

If you have double vision it is out of collimation (alignment of the optical axis). You need to send this to the manufacturer for repair.

Ghosting or double vision on screen...about 5 years old..changed bulb did not change anything

If your TV looks 3D, warped, or distorted it likely has a convergenge problem.
If however it just looks dull, washed out, redish, or if it looks like objects on the screen have halos the fluid in the lens has soured.
You can search google for parts or you can get the parts with repair instructions from sites such as

Pentax k1000 ....lens will not focus...(one 50mm...other 70-210mm)...happened once before...brought to camera store and of course it focused...nothing wrong...took some pics and worked not...

Try this first.

Set your lens focus to infinity and focus your screen at a far away object (like a distant lampost). If it,s not in focus, then you have a misaligned mirror. Adjust your mirror so that a infinity setting, the split-screen image merge well to form a well focussed image. Hope that helps.

Green & Blue Ghosting Convergance problem

Odds are real good that the cooling fluid in the green and blue picture tube assemblies has become contaminated. You can tell by looking down into the lenses with a flash light. Funny thing is the red never gets contaminated because whatever organism is causing the problem can't survive in red light. BTW this may still not solve all of your convergence problems but when the colors are so badly diffused the convergence sensors for flash focus can't lock onto the beam landing.

We are getting ghost images and the color is not correct

I have red concave lines going across the screen, plus wording appears double like a ghosting effect, this is ongoing from the time the tv is turned on until it is turned off. This started 3 days ago. Is it time for a new tv, its 9 or 10 yrs old now.

Lens Problem

Mine was exactly the same. They seem to work fine, just give the camera time to focus. After a while, I tired of the slow pace of the C8080 and sold it, moved on to the Konica Minolta A2 which is a much more responsive camera. I've since pretty much stopped using it too: the Pentax *ist DS DSLR is a near perfect fit for the photography I love to do and works the way I want a camera to.
