If they are pink or blue stripes, I have seen this before. I hope the TV is less than two years old, because the optical block has to be replaced. The optical block has a two year warranty on the part, but you will have to pay labor. Just to double check, make sure you can see it on all inputs and also that it shows up on the menu and on screen display. If yes to all of these, it's the optical block and no adjustments will help. Be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!

Discolored is a bit vague---what is the brand and model number and if possible upload a picture.

The coolant in the green and blue tubes has discolored causing the red to dominate the screen,. This is a common problem that you can fix yourself with a CRT or Dull video repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com

The screen seems to have two of the same image, green and red.


Yes.
The fix is to replace the two Convergence IC's( STK392-110's) with STK392-150's. They are located to the right side of the chassis and mounted to large heat sinks. Be also on the look out for some burnt resisters and or discolored resistors that failed becuase of the IC's failing. These would be located just to the left of the heat sinks. If they are burnt or severly discolored, you will need to replace them with the exact valued resistors. In this high current circuit it is a must.
I hope this helps,

Green hazy lines across my projection tv screen


The coolant in between the CRT face and the focus lens has probably become discolored and would need to be drained, cleaned and refilled. The green CRT is the center one and it would have to be romoved in order to refill it.

Same old red convergence issue


they wont show any signs of being bad if you cant adjust the convergence the ICs and possibly a few of the convergence resistors will need replacement. You can get new ICs and resistors at the following link and they come with free instaltion instructions.

Set needs convergence ic's changed (STK392-110). Also look for resistors slightly discolored around STKs, usually low value like 1.5 ohm, 2.7 and 3.3 If you have an ohm meter and a soldering iron, solder and solder wick, you can attempt this yourself. Remove rear cover of set. Mark and unplug connectors from convergence board, including small jumpers that interconnect boards. Remove board, turn over and unsolder pins of conv. ic's using solder wick. Unscrew mounting screws and pull chips out. Careful, white heatsink compound is messy. Apply new compound to new chips if needed, making sure not to bend small pins. Slide chips in and screw in mounting screws. Flip board and solder in ic's making sure all pins came through. Check for small resistors around ic's being discolored,(usually 1.5 ohm) These are critical and a few tenths of an ohm change will cause extra alignments needed. Replug and secure board. Double check that all connectors are in place and power up unit. If you changed any mechanical adjustments to tubes or lenses, change them back now and try auto convergence. Service adjustment procedures are avail. online if needed. Good luck!

Convergence


Replace both convergence IC's part# STK392-040. Also check for burnt/discolored resistors nearby.
