Question about Toshiba Televison & Video
I have a Toshiba Cinema Series HD rear projection TV that has suddenly develope a 3D type image where the red and blue colors are separated. How can this be fixed and is there someone in the Tampa FL area who can repair it?
Almost any TV repair place can fix it but it will likely be more reasonable to but a new tv

The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.
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 a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links below.
Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...
