Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.
Common Symptoms include.... •Screen looks 3D •Colors don't line up •One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu. •Screen is bowed or warped. •TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.

This unit has a problem in the pincushion correction circuit. These sets are famous for loose solder connections causing this problem. The Deflection PCB will have to be removed to repair this. You may want to contact a repair shop to help you out. Thanks
If the convergence is out on that set you most likely do not need to make an adjustment the circuit will need to be repaired. There is a stk on the convergence amp board that needs to be replaced. A good tv shop will run you somewhere between $300-$500 to do the repair
