Getting Ghosts and color line separation.

At first all we did was shut it off and turn it back on but now it comes on and the picture is crooked and has a lot of shadows red and green.

Triple colored ghosts


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...

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

Toshiba 50H72 have blue and yellow ghosts


Sounds like your convergence circuit went out. It lines up the red,green and blue picture tubes so the colors are lined up. Usually these TVs all use the same type of IC chips called "STKs" both usually get replaced along with any resistors etc.. around these chips that may have burned up. Depending on who fixes it could be around $300-400 parts and labor.

We have blue ghosts with brilliant colors


This sounds like the most common thing that fails on projection TV's, regardless of the brand. The convergence circuit has two STK392-110 IC chips mounted on heat sinks to drive the convergence yokes. They typically last anywhere from 5-10 years, then they fail. A more robust part is now available (STK392-150) as a direct drop-in replacement. My shop has installed these IC's in hundreds of projection sets and had fewer than 1% of them come back with repeat failures. Also check the following low-ohm feedback resistors to make sure they did not go out of tolerance:
  • RK42: 2.7
  • RK46: 2.2
  • RK58: 3.9
  • RK52: 3.3
  • RK50: 3.3
  • RK54: 2.2

Picture loses all normal color & changes to snowy blues & greens


Not sure what causes it but it can be fixxed by your local repair guy, I just had mine fixxed for under a hundred bucks, he takes the back off and with a tiny screw driver adjust a few screws to near brand new perfect picture.. and it has been good ever since

Floating lines in picture


"Floating lines" usually caused by bad cable signal. Try playing a dvd or tape. If lines are gone, tighten all cable connections. If lines are there, you could need convergence repair if any colored shadows or ghosts are visable around on screen lettering. Hope it's some help anyway.

Ghosts on my tv


if you can, try hooking up the tv to a different cable line in the house or bring a different tv into the room where the bad picture is [ you may have a bad connection or wire ] if this doesn't help, try rabbit ear antennas just to get a picture. if you still have ghosts on your tv, the problem is with your tv.if the picture is fine, there maybe a problem with your cable service.
hope this helps
