Double vision with a lot of yellow color

Our televsion has double vision image on all images except in the middle portion of the tv screen. Same is true for the yellow color. It's most apparent from the top and bottom center. Has anyone had a similiar problem or solution to this problem?

Re: Double vision with a lot of yellow color

This looks like bad convergance. If only one color is affected it may be one of the convergance IC's. It is best to replace both IC's though. If you change the IC's then check the resistors next to the IC's. Use the exact part numbers. STK392-110 IC's can be upgraded to a STK392-180 for better heat strength. (That is why they blow, too much heat generated. Use a liberal amount of Silicone Heat sink compound.) A shorted IC will usually blow a resistor. If a bad resistor that isn't changed it will look like the new chip is bad. Make sure that you use the same wattage and the exact value (Ohms). Your convergance will not be right with an off value resistor. This info works for about any other brand Projo TV. Cheers, Lee

It sounds that the T'Con board has failed. If you are not familiar with electronics, do not attempt to repair. Whether you suffer fatal electric shock. Instead, contact any experienced service technician, or the nearest service center.

We have a panosonic projection hdtv and the msg on our tv said replace lamp and reset the lamp hour meter well we did that and now its kinda blurry/double vision i called the manufacture and said ill need...

In your tv the image is generated this way: the bulb makes the light; that light is reflected by a panel with a lot of tiny mirrors which generates a black/white image; that image goes thru a set of colored disks on a wheel that rotates which gives the image color; that image goes thru a set of lenses (called the image engine) and it's projected on the screen.
No convergence here - you see the fuzzy image because either the color wheel isn't aligned properly or (more likely) the lenses in the image engine are deformed.
The second one can't be fixed and replacing the lenses will cost more than the tv is worth. You might be able to realign the wheel, but this must be done by someone with a lot of experience and it will be costly.

I am getting a double image on my 48 inch television how can i get rid of it? it is showing colors green and red on double image

Assuming that your TV is a rear-projection TV, then it sounds like the separate red, green & blue tubes aren't set correctly.

Each tube needs to be alligned exactly to produce the image on the screen. If any of the 3 are mis-alligned then the effect you describe is caused.

Somewhere in the menu settings, will be an option to set the Convergence. This option will allow you to set the allignment of all three tubes.

Older sets do not have this option, and need to be adjusted via controls on the main PCB.

A double horizontal image, divided evenly across the screen

you probably will need to reload the firmware check with maker for any upgraded firmware
just as a computer has a cmos program that can have problems
so does a tv or Lcd monitor with a tuner card and speakers
reload the newest firmware . the resolution scaler is overlaping
unless the two images are different colors
