Perfect! That is typically called "Ghosting" where there is a faint image shadow behind the image on your screen. I'm glad you were able to get it fixed!

Mitsubishi RPTV has a blue shadow/image alignment problem


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

Red and blue overlap shadowing


Sounds like a convergence ic problem, normaly i tell people to replace the ic's but in your case try to re-solder the pins on the ic first, you may just have some pins broken loose from the board. Locate the stk392 ic's there will be two of them located on a heat sink, unplug the tv and get to the bottom side of the board and re-solder the pins. if this does not work, then replace the ic's

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.

TV has double picture. Ghost shadow is Blue.


looks like the t-con board failing, or a lose connection to the t-con or screen ribbons off the t-con board to the screen.

Convergence problems.


Your convergence ICs are likely bad, not typically a CRT or tube going out. A repair shop will fix for $200-400 or if you are very skilled you could repair yourself.

Panasonic PT-51HX41 rear projection tv showing shadow/double images.


Unplug the TV from the ac wall outlet for about 4 minutes then plug it back in and turn it on. If it still has a double image then tell me if it's affecting the menu screen from the TV (not the cable menu). And is the double image in red and blue?
