Double vision on Mitsubishi Model #4544

I can tap on the floor or the side of the tv to straighten it out. But it keeps repeating and its now to the point that it is double vision 90 % of the time.
I understand there is not a place to get a free manual for this?

Thanks to anyone who can help. One service man quoted me $150 (didn't say) and the other was $485. Second man said it was two IC's?????
Where is the "convergance ICS"? Is there a diagram or manual? I am also getting red and blue colors at the top and bottom of the screen. The double vision is only at the top and bottom. Is this the same problem?

The convergence ICs are mounted on convergence board instide the TV.

    Here is explained how to fix a convergence problem : Fixing Convergence problems in RPTV's.

    If problem is associated with vibration, it is more likely a bad solder joint, that means that one of the solderings on the internal board does not make contact.

In my opinion, there are few cold solder joints in convergence board of this TV and you need to re-sold these joints.
Cold solder joints can be seen easily once convergence board (PCB side) in front of you.

Hi

it indeed may be convergence ic problem and they would need to be replaced.

another person has written about that fix here
http://cmpalmer.blogspot.com/2006/11/fixing-my-own-tv-part-ii.html

You will need a service manual, and the service manual will tell you the part details from the two ics that you would need to replace.

Please look at the before and after pictures to confirm if this is the problem.

Thanks,
Ekse

Tip

"double vision" caused by bad solder points on convergence chips (check before...


Before you order new convergence chips to try to fix the double vision or 3D look on your tv check the solder points for the chips. If you are able to smack the side of the tv or tap the heat sink for the chips and it corrects the problem than chances are the chips are fine butone or more of the solder points are bad. When I looked at the joints for the chips I noticed hairline cracks around the base of the joint. Re-soldering the joints for the convergence chips solved my problem.
