Mitsubishi VS-50605 - Colors separated

I have a Mitsubishi VS-50605 projection tv made in July 1999. The colors just recently separated. As an example, when you adjust the volume, the volume levels shows up twice. One in red, and one in green just underneath the red one.
Does anyone know what could be wrong with this tv?

    My Mtsubishi VS-50605 is very dim in color when first turned on after sitting for awhile. It is almost in black an white but very dim as well. After it warms up the color comes in great but the screen jumps around all the time. It seems to occur in the upper 1/4 of the screen. We did have a satellite provider out and she informed us that we need to replace the bulbs. When I called Mitz. support they could not understand my request. Please help!!!

The color on my mitsubishi model # vs-5041 is faded and foggy.

Hi, did you try a color convergence? I used to work in Best Buy and one of the key things about rear projection TVs and the reason they push those service plans on you is that the tubes/colors need to be calibrated each year. You can do this yourself by checking out the following website: 

Hope this helps :)

Mitsubishi projection tv

I have a similar problem. I have tried to fix the convergence via the remote and that has not helped. My three colors are separated and the edge of the picture is bent in toward the center. I am going to try a hard reset but i suspect the convergence IC are fried. Since the set is not HD, I will probably replace it if the hard reset does not work.
