Question about Sony KP-53S75 53" Rear Projection Television
I was watching my sony 52in projection screen and all of a sudden the image split. Now I get what looks to be a double image. When there is a close up of the actors, the image is okay, but normal viewing is double. Someone told me that the screen probably shifted...could that be it? Is it fixable?
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.
