Re: Picture Looks Like a 3-d Movie

This is bad convergence. Try self focus and if still not ok is hardware problem. The STK are leaked and need to be replaced. It's not easy, you have to remove the all deflection board and for sure you'll have some resistors to replace too. I sugest you to call a tech, but first try the self focus.

We recently moved the tv and now when we turn it on it has double vision. It kinda looks like a 3d movie. What could be the issue? Is it worth fixing?

If tv picture was fine before moved then check dry/ cold solder joints/ connections on convergence output ICs and nearby circuit area.
Local tv repairman will resolder loose/ dry solder connections to solve double vision picture problem.
TV worth fixing if picture is good.

KP-57HW40 rear projection TV colors out of alignment and warped

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

Convergence Issue?

I had the same problem but not as bad. I went to the menu, then settings. Tried the factory convergence reset first but that didn't work. Under convergence I selected the red option and got a screen with a plus sign. Press the AUDIO button and lines will cover your tv screen. It might take a while but you can try to fix the convergence at many points now. Select the area you want to correct by pushing the ENTER button, then up,down,left,right until its better and ENTER button again. Keep doing that to all areas. Once done with red, push VIDEO button and blue convergence will come up. Also INFO button helps explain a little. After I did this my picture improved a lot. My tv wasn't as bad as yours, but I hope this works.

Picture looks like 3D without 3D glasses on???

The cost I don't know, but this can be fixed. I'd say shop around a bit. Make sure the repair person is certified for your TV's manufacturer. There are generally 3 lamps in projection T.V.'s, Red, Green, and Blue. They have to be aligned for the TV to project a clear picture. A credible TV repairman should be able to fix it. Depending on if it's new enough to be under warranty they may cover it as well. Really the only reason to get rid of it is if you want to get a new TV anyway. Depends on the cost of having the lamps aligned.

Looks like watching 3D movie(colors) and rounded

This is a convergence problem and is either bad connections on the convergence ICs or defective ICs. If you feel that you can solder, you should be able to repair this yourself. First try resoldering the pins on the convergence ICs. If that fails, replace the ICs. These ICs are large black ICs attached to a heatsink and should be marked STKxxx.
Keep us posted.
