    Hi Dan



    Thank you for your quick reply it may be a convergence problem as you suggested but I'm not comfortable with soldering or putting any kind of heat on my TV. Do you have any other suggestions?

    I have the same problem with this TV and would like to try and repair it myself. Is there a manual online that would allow me to take this apart ? Any help on repairs would be great,

If the picture looks like a 3D one, the problem is a convergence issue. This can be as simple as poor connections at the pins of the convergence ICs or defective ICs. If you can solder you can probably fix this yourself. Please note that there are potentially dangerous high voltages inside the set even when unplugged.

If you wish to attempt the repair, please update this and I will provide additional details and instructions.

The picture is double pictured with what appears to be a ghost


projection sets on occation need to be re-alligned. check your owners manual if you have one and re-align your lamps to the test screen that is displayed when you press 'menu' from your remote or from the front of the tv. This should fix alot of it and you may find the color adjustments may need adjusting after re-aligning your lamps. hope this helps. I had one and that sounds like the 'ghost' images I had till I did this.

Big screen showing double and red ghost color


Go into your service menu and try to adjust the convergence, if it does not adjust, the IC's ( chips) are bad in that circuit. Call a local factory authorized dealer to service your tv. The cost should run around $450.00. Good luck.

Double images with red halo outlines


Sounds like your describing convergence ICs. They cost about 10.00 each and you will need to replace both of them. And possibly the resistors that power them total cost under 30 dollars if you do he soldering yourself. Hope this helps.

Toshiba Model # 42H81 Picture Problem


Can you describe the issue a little more? It may be a convergence issue which is quite common on big screens. But there are quite a few issues that can cause a bad picture.

If it's convergence, you'll be able to tell by going to a news channel and looking at the text. If the convergence is bad you'll see a ghosting like image of 2 or 3 letters for each one that should be there.

The words on the screen is doubled or trippled.


Go to the picture control menu and turn the color to minumum so that you are watching a black & white picture. Do this to determine if the color offset affects the overall screen or just the lower corner. If the center is off, go to the convergence adjustment menu and align the red and blue onto the green as described in the owners manual. Some models also allow you to align the outer edges as well. If the bottom is still bad you may have a problem in the convergence circuit. If the outlines are not seriously bowed or distorted a minor convergence toutchup by a qualified technician should correct the problem, otherwise parts are involved and the repair is considered major.
