The tv image is showing in three colors....Almost ghost like but in three colors. I checked my connections and tried my blue ray player and the image is still messed up....I did press the magic focus...

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.

We are getting ghost images and the color is not correct

I have red concave lines going across the screen, plus wording appears double like a ghosting effect, this is ongoing from the time the tv is turned on until it is turned off. This started 3 days ago. Is it time for a new tv, its 9 or 10 yrs old now.

Hitachi with blue out of focus or ghost imaging and have tried magic focus many times!

Good Day,
When you turn down the BLUE the TV will give a yellowish picture. That is why the TV has three CRT's, it needs all three colors. The problem most likely lies in the TV's Convergence Circuit. To repair yourself get KIT 10 @ 1-800-458-6053 or www. If not call a Factory Authorized Service Center and have them give a written estimate, avg cost $550.00.
good Luck, big IRISH.

This sound like a convergence problem and maybe another problem for the pink symptom. I would not suggest to do it yourself on this one because after the IC's are put in and sometimes a resistor or two there is also a very extensive alignment that could occur. Just off the cuff have you pressed the magic focus button on the front? If magic focus don't fix then the convergence is bad . Suggest a good tv repairman.

Hitachi 43FDX11B television Ghosting

I had the same problem on my Hitachi rear projection TV 53FDX20B made in Mexico. The blue convergence problem. Blue focus had shifted and appeared like a blue ghost image. I followed the step by step intructions from the fixya site. First Replaced the two STK 392-110 ICs and turned on the tv. No change. Then I went looking for the bad resistor. There was one resistor RK50 (2.7 ohm, 1Watt capacity) which is attached not right close to the printed circuit board surface but was well raised up from the board. The bands on the resistor were a little discolored. I replaced that one and turned on the tv. The convergence problem was solved. Thanks for the step by step instrucitons on your site.

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
