Question about Pioneer PRO-510HD 53" Rear Projection Television

PLEASE HELP (Three Ghost Images)

For the past week and a half my TV screen has been displaying three separate ghost images. All my eforts to align the color convergence using the user manual have failed. I can't seem to adjust the '+' sign to appear in one color. Part red and part blue lines along the plus sign are still appearing. Also, there is a full curvature (in red and yellow) that appears at the bottom of the screen. Please HELP. You can e-mail me the solution directly if it is OK with you. My e-mail address: Thank you very much.

Re: PLEASE HELP (Three Ghost Images)

You will need to have or change the convergence correction driver IC's. There are two of them in this TV set. Not a fix for a novice I'm afraid. If you have no solid state repair experience, play it safe and call out a pro to assist you in this repair.

Its not clear what kind of tv you have but it appears to be older rear projection tv with three picture tube. This problem does occur due to the convergence board going bad.

The picture is double pictured with what appears to be a ghost

projection sets on occation need to be re-alligned. check your owners manual if you have one and re-align your lamps to the test screen that is displayed when you press 'menu' from your remote or from the front of the tv. This should fix alot of it and you may find the color adjustments may need adjusting after re-aligning your lamps. hope this helps. I had one and that sounds like the 'ghost' images I had till I did this.

Color ghosting or shadows

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

Red-striped ghost images.

when you leave your TV (no matter what kind) and you leave it for long periods of time on a static image or something.. the image tends to burn in to the screen... so changing the glass would be a way to fix it.... the problem is that that kind of repairmen is more expensive and difficult than buying a new set...
