Hi Ross, This repair is quite easy, But before I tell you how to fix the problem I need to know have you gone in to the user menu & tried adjusting the convergence This will save time & expense for you ? If you havent then try this first it may sort it out without needing to dismantle the set. Let me know how you get on by either replying to this post or let me know via email Chris..

Hey there recently my screen just went haywire and i am seeing double and the second picture is red in colour,also the bottom of the screen is curved....what causes this and is it worth fixing?

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 projection 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

When switched on colours fine after short period colours seperate causing a 3d type effect

Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.

The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded overs.

Rainbow colours on the screen

The projector is starting to go out in it. Depending on your financial situation, you can take it to a shop to have it looked at, or replace the TV. Depending on how long this has been happening, the Pioneer projectors usually last about 100 hours once this happens before they burn out completely.
