You're going to have to be more specific. When you are messing with the convergence settings, are all of the crosshairs straight lines? Are they crisp or fuzzy? Can you successfully move the Red and Blue crosshairs up/down/left/right? Have you opened up the TV yet? I'll help you from there once we get some details.

My picture is doubled on my toshiba TN50V71 as if there is a shadow behind everything? Please help!


hi, sounds like a convergence issue. try this...
  • Look through your manual. Your manual will always give you the most specific directions for your particular model. Look for an "adjusting convergence" or "set manual convergence" section.

  • Enter the menu on your TV. Use the remote control and bring up the menu.
  • Choose "Convergence." This may be under "Picture Settings," "Function" or "Advanced Options."
  • Select a color. You will have red, green and blue to choose from. Do each one, starting with red.
  • Press "Enter." A crosshair pattern will appear on your screen.
  • Adjust vertically. If there is a horizontal red line visible, press the up or down arrow keys (or channel up or down) to adjust the convergence until the line is superimposed on the horizontal-center line of the white crosshair.
  • Adjust horizontally. If there is a vertical red line visible, press left or right (or volume up or down) to adjust horizontally. Do this until the line is superimposed on the vertical line of the white crosshair.
  • Save settings. It is important to save your settings when you are done, instead of simply exiting the menu.
  • Repeat these steps for all colors.
    good luck!

    Model 50UX58K - picture has distortion & shadow on right side of screen


    Hi, if the shadow is colored lines then you probably need the convergence ICs and possible reisitors near them replaced .
    If the shadows is just like a ghost of the image or a bar from top to bottom, then check if it does it on every input (dvd for example) , there are blanking bars that you can't see past the edges of the picture and when you have a bad cable signal you can see the ghost of the blanking bar sometimes. if it does it does not show the shadow when watching a DVD then its a signal issue with your cable/satelitte .
    If your convergence is the issue, try the adjustments first and if that doesn't correct it, you can replace the ICs using kit # x480293 or stk392-110 (2 ICs) soldered in very technical for even a technician.
    repairman cost about $250-$350
    hope this helps

    Picture is distorted from center on my 65


    You do have a failure in the convergence circuit of your set. If you are good at soldering you can replace the IC's yourself. They are on the large circuit board on the left side of the set looking from the back, and attached to a large aluminum heat sink. If you don't feel comfortable doing that, I reccomend removing the board and sending it to PTS corp in Indiana. They are pretty reasonable repairing boards, and a lot less than buying a new one.

    Picture is distorted from center on my 65" Sony projection TV.


    hi. this will be an easy fix for you if you are a good solder. you will need to replace the convergence chip that is located on the PC board(main). this chip is damaged and it has failed due to this damage that has occurred. click below for your new convergence chip(stk).

    Sony kp-48s75, shadow or ghosting picture


    The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

    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,Pioneer2_bing.gif Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
    You can get a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links 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
