Your symptoms sounds like a damaged convergence IC’s.

There are two and sometimes three very large IC’s that control the convergence in a big screen set. They are secured to a very large aluminum heat sink.

Most of the time you can just correct the convergence through the television menu. All that needs to be done is line up the blue and red to the green. If the colors do not move then there may be faulty components in the convergence circuit.

If your colors line up in the middle of the set and at the top but the picture is concave then you may have a faulty component in the pincushion circuit. When this circuit fails the picture will have an hourglass shape to it with black in the middle on the sides, or you will see square objects as hourglass shapes.

You may want to consult a Television Repair Technician, or repair this yourself. If you want to tackle this yourself, let me know, I can give you some direction for the repair

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

Here are some of the most common symptoms and examples of a convergence problem.

This is a very common failure on Projection TV sets.


  • 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.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.I am getting double vision in top and bottom - 1d5e2cf.jpg

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the settings menu then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

Note: If you TV has as flash focus or magic focus button only try pressing the button. If it fails tI am getting double vision in top and bottom - 47a7bc4.pngonvergence your need to fix it. See below for a solution

47a7bc4.pngSOLUTION
You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses.

This is a a fairly easy DIY job if you know what you are doing or you can call in a pro.

If you want to do the repair yourself check the site www.TvRepairKits.com.

Their kits include a step by step instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, email/phone support, etc.

I have a Rca Model# R52WH74 the picture looks bowed at the top and bottom and has double vision of objects.


The convergence is out, and the convergence ICs' need change, or it will have to be repair, and it will run around 350, on repairs.

I have the samsung 55 in lcd tv with the double vision ...i see the picture on the home page and it is exactly like the picture...how much will this cost me..i bought my tv back in aug of 2009...


If all pictures including the menus appear in double than most likely your T-con board or T-concable are defective. The T-con is located on the upper portion of the rear of the LCD panel itself. Here is a link where the board and the cable can be purchased. Note there are a few different versions of the T-con board and they wil not cross with each other. There is a bar code on the T-con board with numbers that corralate with the correct part number. Follow that before ordereing : )

Colors look like 3-D


Projection sets have two very common problems.

The first common problem is convergence


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Picture Problem!! and its not convergence (Double vision except for middle of screen)


Could be pin correction circuit or your picture tubes could be worn out . Sometimes when the crt's get weak the edges seem not as clear as the center of the screen . Give model number if you think the pin correction may be your problem but, the tv is pretty old and avg. life for them is 12 to 15 years when the picture tubes start to degrade . Good luck

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
