I would say convergence drivers, IC's if it has them, transistors if it does not.

I can see double images red and green it just started on its own is there a away to realign the lamps??


I am going to assume that you have already tried to do the convergence adjustment. If not open the menu, choose setup, look for convergence and follow the instructions on the screen. If this does not solve your problem you probably need new convergence ICs. They control the position of the beams and are run very hard and hot. Over time they will dry out the heat sink compound (used to enhance heat flow from the ICs to the heat sink) which causes heat buildup and failure. If the convergence adjustment will not solve the problem new ICs are in order. You will need some help replacing them and I can help with my tip at which explains how to identify the ICs and the procedure to replace them as well as where to purchase them.

Just fixed the convergence chip problem.$534.00. Now 720p and 1080 1 signals are showing double images and colors. Also the componentinput #2 is showing double images on any format

many of these sets need the convergence adjusted in the 480 and the 1080 separate-- the set most likely if looks good in 480 needs to be adjusted with the original remote in the 1080 mode.

Whoever charged you 534 got you---if you did it yourself you paid way too much--with 1080 signal--enter convergence mode and try to adjust in customer menu--if 480 is ok---it needs to be adjusted in the hd mode.

Looks every thing is double like 3d and curve in the middle

Your CONVERGENCE needs adjustment.
All TVs are different - please consult your owners manual on the procedure.

Projection TV sets have two very common problems listed below.

Problem #1) 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
