Samsung SP-43T6HP rear projection TV 42" picture problem

Can any tell me what they think is wrong with my TV. It has split into 2 pictures, the 2nd being a blue shadow like one on the right of the main picture. Do I need to call someone to come repair it for me or can I do it myself? Thank you

The tube should be ok its the IC's regulating the convergence is your problem . A tv repairman should be able to repair it fro around $250.00 - $300.00 or less depending on who you call. Good luck

SOURCE: convergence chip

Convergence ICs cost around 15-25 each there are only two of them. I would go ahead and replace both of them because if one goes the other one will follow shortly. I would make sure that it is just the convergence IC not something else, and if its over five years old dont pay more than $500.

Ihi i have a samsung sp 43t6hp and it looks like im watching tv in 3d how could i fix the problem

Sounds like you need a convergence board. Problem is there might be some transistors that you need as well. I've had a similar issue. Most places will cost $300+ to replace what might be a $15 part. Also there are 2 transistors in there that need to be replaced at the same time (once one goes the other is likely to as well). I would suggest calling Sears to fix it. They charge much less for the visit ($99 min charge) and will replace both parts at the same time.
Sorry I know that's not a true answer on how to replace the convergence board or other parts but mucking around in a rear project tv is a good way to get shocked. Those TV's hold a lot of charge even after unplugging.

I had the same issue, I purchased a new lamp, installed it in 2 minutes. The picture is like when I first purchased the tv. You can find the lamp code sticker on the left when facing the tv.

Picture shadow on rear projection Sony big screen TV

You have 2 distinct problems that should be addressed separately. Please repost the Samsung problem. I will address the Sony problem here.

If the "shadow" makes the picture seem somewhat of a 3D one, the problem is with the convergence circuit. This could be as simple as bad connections on the pins of the convergence ICs or defective ICs. If you can solder and would like to attempt the repair, update this and I'll provide more details and instructions.
