Words don't line up??

I have a pioneer sd-p55a3 and it has like a double image and when words come on they don't line up I was told to set the convergence I look in the menu and did not find any way to set this should it be there or am I just missing it? If I do find it and that don't work what more can I do to fix this? I would like to keep this tv it is still in nice shape

The colors are all there but there is a double image. Like a blue or yellow outline around everything and words are doubled. I think it is a convergence problem but I don't know how to fix. Please help.


It is convergence problem---set uses either 2 or 3 chips for this (most use two of the STK-392-110 OR 150 CHIPS.

Hello, I have an older Pioneer SD-P55A3 projection tv. I have a problem where the picture at the bottom of the screen appears distorted or, more accurately, "warped". There is yellow and blue that does not...


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. 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, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith 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 - makes a chirping sound.
Problem #2

Another common problem is dull or washed out video.
Your TV may have one or more of the following symptoms....
  • Dull looking picture
  • White looking picture
  • Halos around objects
  • Red/Orange looking picture

This sounds like a picture mode issue. You maybe in a ZOOM mode. Try adjusting your set to FULL mode. If you are using a Sat receiver or cable box, some of these may have picture viewing mode as well, wich may need to be set in FULL or NORMAL viewing mode.

Good Luck!
