This sounds like a convergence issue. I can tell you that the site that Jean posted will not fix this problem and could even make things worse. That sight pertains to a specific problem that is common in some Sony sets and should not be used to try to fix any other issue.

Please keep in mind many things can go wrong with TV sets and you should really do a lot of research before attempting any adjustment and or repair. There are high voltages present and they can reside even when the set is unplugged.

My rca projection tv has blue and green images like a 3D picture would without your 3D glasses, a double vision image and no other colors


sounds like the sensors are out of focus and your red sensor isnt turning on. look in the back of the tv for a master reset button or in your menu screen some sort of "Flash focus" or "convergence". They will realign the 3 sensors.

Picture looks concave ,mostly yellow,and double vision on words


Remove unshielded speakers or other metallic objects near the TV. It can cause picture distortion.
  1. Tune the TV to channel or cable program.
  2. Run the TV for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Press FLASH FOCUS on the front panel of the TV.
  4. A cross pattern appears and FLASH FOCUS begins to
    work. The adjustment is completed when the cross pattern becomes white and you are returned to the program you were watching.
You cannot perform any other functions until FLASH FOCUS has
completed its cycle. If you perform any other operation while FLASH FOCUS is in progress, FLASH FOCUS operation is canceled.

I have red and green double vision on words showing on the screen


Try adjusting the convergence. If it won't move see below- (or hitting Magic Focus for some Hitachi’s)

This sounds like convergence output IC problem. convergence board would have to be removed - remove and replace 2 STK IC's and check the surrounding resistors. Shops usually charge between $200-$400 Be sure to vote/rate me if this helped Thanks!

If after the Flash Focus™ feature has been performed, the colors on the FLASH FOCUS screen do no line up (converge), press the FLASH FOCUS button on the television to begin the cycle again. If the colors on the FLASH FOCUS screen continues to appear misaligned, service will be required .
NOTE: It is recommended to perform the Flash Focus™ feature about thirty minutes after the television has been turned on and keep the room as dark as possible.

Hitachi 53UWX10BA dynamic convergence works but blue is blurry


I know this set very well---you are saying convergence adjusts ok everywhere? If you understand that the blue is usually de-focused a little----there are only two ways to adjust the focus of each tube-----

1.) Behind the front speaker grill there is an inspection plate---with it removed you will see a small black plastic block with 6 controls on it; it is the MASTER SCREEN/ FOCUS BLOCK

2.) THREE of the controls left to right are Screen controls(red, green and blue) and the other 3 are FOCUS--IT IS ALL black and you need to look close to identify which is focus and which is screen---you are looking for the BLUE focus control(one of the 6)

3.) With the convergence grid on screen cover the RED and GREEN lens in the set and try to adjust the focus of the blue(I presume you know how to put the set into the Convergence mode?

4.) The only other way to adjust the Blue focus is from the back of the set---with the Red and Green lens covered up place a blanket over the top of the set that covers the whole screen--from the back of the set you will note that all three of the black focal lens have a wing nut---with the convergence grid up and only blue lines present(Green and Red lens covered with a cloth) look from behind the set at the grid---loosen the wing nut on the blue lens and slowly slide the lens left or right until the blue has the best focus possible----if it will not adjust with the focal lens or the front focus control you have a circuit problem.

I do this here for free and if this information helps you take a minute and give me a vote here. If you have any questions or need advice reply to this posting here and I will assist you.

Double vision on my Mitsubishi 46 inch width screen--TV is 5 years old


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

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses.
This is a a fairly easy DIY job if you are handy and can follow directions. You can get complete repair kits from TvRepairKits.com or click here. They have put together DIY repair kits that include the OEM parts and step by step photo instructions for each repair. If you are not handy or can't follow directions we would suggest calling a shop.

Double image on green


Focus won't help if it is a double image. Sounds like convergence amps need to be replaced. Very typical on these.

the convergence IC`s and associated resistors have to be replaced, do not repeatedly push magic focus or the alignment after the parts change out will take longer which of course means higher repair bill, good luck

Lamp issues


No its a tube and not a bulb. If thew line is green then theres an issue with the red and blue as the green is stationary on most sets unless thers a green centering ? Its a componet on the convergence board thats bad or going bad but if you replace any components on the board most likly your gonna need to do a convergence alighnment I would let a pro handle this repair unless your an experineced repair tech Good Luck
