Problem with picture - "double exposure"

My Mitsubishi big screen looks like it has a double exposure. Sort of like the red, blue and yellow are not lined up right. I have tried the contrast, tint, brightness, etc. Even tried disconnecting the cable and reconnecting. Any ideas?

Your set has what is know as convergence problem and is a popular problem in the rear projection sets,the only way to correct the problem is by replacing the amplifiers in charge of aligning all 3 colors,your set might only use two amps for all 3 colors,The IC's(amps) are both the same number and they are mounted in heatsinks because they get hot,they have a number in the front that looks like this STK--- ---,they run about 25.00 each and replacing them can be difficult because they need to be unsoldered and removed without damage to the main circuit board ,then the new ones need to be soldered in,sometimes the new ones need to be aligned from the service menu so all three colors line up.If you are familiar with tv service you have now a place to direct your attention but if you are not too familiar be safe and call for assistance from a servicer.Let us know if you need more information.

Have a Sanyo big screen tv but need need to adjust the color, to yellow!

Need to know if older set with picture tubes---turn color off--if yellow screen you have a loss of blue of some sort--red and green will give you a yellow screen. If set has the 3 picture tubes look inside in the lens to see if all 3 have a image---little or no blue means a problem there.

Mitsubishi ws-48311 blue and yellow shadows

I would suggest you go into the menu and select convergence and then advanced convergence (set will display on screen instructions) and call up the grid of lines by doing that---the grid of lines you see should all be yellow---if you see red or blue lines out of position try with the Mitsubishi remote to adjust them.

If they will not adjust the set needs the convergence circuit repaired.

For many if this is the issue it can be a do it yourself repair--I have complete instructions for this repair in this set---start to finish.

Look first to see if this is your problem.

Samsung HCN4727W Rear Projection TV, green screen, audio works

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,Akai2_bing.gif,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...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*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

Color is mostly yellow and blue with double images

you have lost the convergence IC`s in your set, this really isn`t a diy repair unless you are very proficient in un-soldering and re-soldering components, once replaced there will be an alignment procedure as well that will require the service manual also, if you have more questions feel free to ask away, video-tek

Convergence Problem?

Convergence problems are what you have possibly a pincushion error. Either way if you have to have a repair shop do the repair, you should look at replacing the old TV.
