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 and do the repair yourself. Its a fairly easy DIY fix.

My picture is split. For example when text is on the screen the words are in red above and then again in blue slightly below. Is this an easy/cheap fix or should I get rid of the T.V.?

Based on your description, the convergence circuit has failed. If you looked at the tv menu do you see what may look to be 3D, double image, or a red picture and then blue picture slightly offset? The picture may be distorted as well.

A repair shop will charge about $300 to fix.

If you have soldering skills, an electronics background, an OHM meter, then its not to hard to do, just time consuming.

My 53UWX10B has a picture problem. Picture is blue and yellow and the yellow is offset to one side a couple of inches. Gives a "ghost" image.

If the picture is 3d looking in some way----it is a convergence problem; many of these sets have "magic focus" and if it will not correct the problem the two convergence chips need to be replaced---this model should use either STK-392-110 OR -150 CHIPS.

This can be a do it yourself repair if you have some skill and total parts cost on Ebay would be under 25 dollars.

Let me know your skill level here and I will instruct you how to do the fix.

Convergence Problem

sounds like 1 of the convergence chips are gone theres 2 of them and better off replacing both as the other would just go a month down the line there might also be a resister or 2 gone, the price for that kind of job is around 150 +vat.

hope this helps
