Blue ghosting - convergence problem

I called sears to repair the TV and the tech told me the TV was not worth fixing because many of the parts are no longer available. Is this true?

NOT ! Get a second opinion = Needs STK392-110 X 2, I think. A mom &
Pop repair shop or a referral are your best choices.......T.

Note: STK392-110 subs to upgrade STK394-160E.......

Ghosting or a 3D image. A yellow and blue ghosting or shadowing image. Looks much like the top picture in the "picture ghosting image" entry. Is this a convergence problem?


Your convergence has failed and needs to be repaired. Once quick test is to goto your convergence menu and see if you can adjust red and blue. If not its has failed and needs to be fixed. You can call in a repair shop or you can get the parts and instructions from www.TvRepairKits.com and do the repair yourself. Its a fairly easy DIY fix.

TV is Ghosting


if convergence problem color would be bowed and off. If it is the convergence replace ic stks there are 2 inside tv if you could solder and good at this stuff. parts cost is 30.00 . if you are going to get fixed cost is 300.00 . www.part store.com has parts just give them model number .They can tell you part number.I would pay someone to do this it is trickey.

I think ghosting is ground problem on cable connections check connections and replace cable wire.
