Question about LG RU-52SZ51D 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
Hi, our rear projection TV has been great for 6 years. Now it is blury (red & blue ghosting). After convergence there is no difference in quality. I have also noticed that the red crosshairs won't move vertically, only horizontally. when a word appears on the TV, the word appears horizontal (normal) but then a ghosted 'red' word goes above the horizontal word at an angle. general viewing images have red and blue ghosting, a straight line appears curved. Model number PT-53A83T serial number 208KT00117
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.
