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.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Double image shows in red


it is quite fixable and usually in your home; it is called convergence--kp57wv500 uses two STK 392-560 convergence Ic chips; both and any bad fuses or resistors around them need to be replaced and the set adjusted after.

I fix a lot of these sets in my area---if you call a shop you will pay 300-400----a lot of independent people will do it for under 250 in your home--shop around--now is the slow time of the year for tv shops---you could buy both IC chips on ebay for less then 13 dollars plus shipping---this is a normal problem in all projection tv sets--the chips have a white grease on the back of them designed to transfer heat--after several years it drys out and one of them goes bad---repair should take about an hour or so in your home---you should ask yourself if 200-300 dollar repair is worth while, could you replace the set for this? If the chips are replaced and the set adjusted they should be good for 4 or 5 years at the least.

I do this here for free so if this has been helpful give me a vote here. If you have questions or need more help here is my email:

If you have tried to adjust the convergence on your TV within the menu feature then typically you do have a convergence problem. Check out this video to be sure...

Panasonic PT-51HX41 rear projection tv showing shadow/double images.


Unplug the TV from the ac wall outlet for about 4 minutes then plug it back in and turn it on. If it still has a double image then tell me if it's affecting the menu screen from the TV (not the cable menu). And is the double image in red and blue?

This sounds like your convergence correction amplifiers have malfunctioned. These Integrated Circuits often burn out after a few years (STK392-110) they can be replaced with a higher version (STK392-150) However it is important to have the biasing circuitry checked to make sure nothing has burnt out as a result of the ICs malfunctioning. If you have a background in electronics you can repair this problem with very little effort, however if you do not have a background in electronics, I would suggest that you have your TV serviced by a qualified TV technician.

 

I hope this helps,

 

Thank you,
