If you can solder, yes this is not a hrd fix my friend. Inside this set, standing up, will be two square black IC's up against a large metal piece called a heat sink. These two convergence amp IC's need to be replaced. They are called STK-392-040. You can get the parts from here: http://www.partstore.com/PartSearch.aspx?PartNumber=STK-392-040&x=12&y=13 Do not forget though to get heatsink compound to install on the backs of the new IC's before you replace them. If you do not have the skill to solder and unsolder, see if a friend can assist you who does, like I said you can buy everything you need for less the 100 bucks. one more bit of advice. You do not want to order any cheap 10.00 replacemnet IC's as they are generic and do not meat the manufacturers specs. Buy only good quility parts or you will be in the same boat in a few months. Good Luck

    Why did you say it did not help, I cannot jump through the internet and wave my magic wand and fix your TV set. You will need to do what I said or have a repair person do it for you. It simply will not fix itself.

55PW9363 55 in. Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television: My Phillips big screen has double images and doubl...


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 projeciton 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.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the settings menu then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right. And you should be able to get the grid straight.

If you can't move them in all directions or cant move them far enough your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

Note: If you TV has as flash focus or magic focus button only try pressing the button. If it fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a fix

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses.
This is a a fairly easy DIY job if you are handy and can follow directions. You can get complete repair kits from TvRepairKits.com or click here. They have put together DIY repair kits that include the OEM parts and step by step photo instructions for each repair. If you are not handy or can't follow directions we would suggest calling a shop.

My rca projection tv has blue and green images like a 3D picture would without your 3D glasses, a double vision image and no other colors


sounds like the sensors are out of focus and your red sensor isnt turning on. look in the back of the tv for a master reset button or in your menu screen some sort of "Flash focus" or "convergence". They will realign the 3 sensors.

A repair facility will charge 400 to 600.00 for the repair. Or you can repair it yourself if you can solder. As both convergence ICs need to be replaced. They are STK392-110 you can get replacement ICs at the following link with free instalation instructions with pictures so you can do the repair yourself. Heres the link.

Double image/ out of focus with green and blue seperation


Your tv is crt-based and is out of convergence. In other words, the settings for keeping the Red, Green and Blue images aligned have drifted and must be reset. This is common with CRT projectors and CRT rear projection tvs.

Refer to your owners manual for instructions on re-aligning it.

You will need to repair the convergence circuit to fix the double image. The second issue of the "perfect focus" stopping at 37% will be fixed at the same time. It is halting because the sensors detect no movement of the blue image. here is a link to the part number and how to purchase the board. http://www.partstore.com/Part/Samsung/Samsung/BP9500142E/New.aspx

Blue and Yellow doubles


Well, fortunately the television that you purchased has an auto-convergence feature. What is happenning is that your color lamps are misaligned, did it get moved at all recently? Anyway, in your menu you should see a "Convergence" menu, and inside that menu, a section called "Perfect Focus". Run Perfect Focus in this sequence: Green --> Red --> Blue After that your picture should look great, if not try tinkering with the manual adjustments on the "Convergence" menu.

The Samsung has bad convergence IC's most likly. This should be repair ONLY by a trained technician as a TV set is not a place to experiment or tinker with because of the extremly high voltage inside. This repair should cost you in the range of 250 to 400 bucks . Good Luck
