You need to replace the convergence board in your tv .

Also you have mentioned it is 5 years old so its time to replace it .
But it will not be cost effective one .

I have a JVC I'ART projection hdmi 1080 model #av-48wp74 .it is 6 yrs old and it started to get a double image [ghost]and the colors are off. i tried the auto convergance but to no avail???

If this is not resolved soon, the picture will start to bow from the top and bottom. This is a common rpoblem with CRT based projections sets and is in the convergence circuit. If you can solder, you may be able to resolve this yourself. Be aware that there are potentially dangerous high voltages present inside the set even when unplugged.

The problem can be as simple as poor solder connetions at the convergence ICs or defective ICs. In any case, these ICs are large and black and are marked STKxxx. If you can locate these, try resoldering the pins on the ICs. If that fails to resolve the probelm, replace the ICs.

Please keep us posted.

JVC-AV48WPT74 picture colors are distorted, looks like 3-D image

The convergence ICs and feed resistors need to be replaced. You can get the repair kit for your specific model at the following link. The convergence repair kit contains the replacement parts and the step by step repair proceedure on CD. Very easy repair. Just look under the JVC repair kit category

Double image

In all probability you need to have the convergence amplifiers replaced. A very common problem with all projection sets.

Red shadow on all images

you will need to cahnge the Convergence Ics for sure and possibly the feed resistors. You will need two STK392-110 Convergence ICs and 1 JVC convergence resistor Kit #1 you can get the parts at the following link with free installation instructions with pictures. Heres the link.

Convergence-red off set

The issue with your set is convergence mis-alignment caused
by a defective IC....change both STK392-110...mounted on
large heatsinks....check nearby resistors for over-heating.....
Moderate tech skills necessary......................T.

JVC AV-48WP74 48 in.

The convergence circuit needs repaired. I did the same job yesterday on this model. I not only replaced the convergence ICs, but, I had to replace a couple of resistors and a coil. The convergence alignment was minor after that.
