The colors seem to be overlapping the red is further off than the other two

Hi, you might be experimenting a color wheel problem.The color wheel is a rotating disc that has a gamma of colors it spins at high rpms.The light of the lamp goes through it to create the colors on your tv.When it starts to go bad you will get color distortion ,black and white picture and sometimes you will hear humming noises.The other thing that it could be is the DMD board.This is how it works: Basically the light of the lamp goes through a tunnel that carries a color wheel(rotating disc with a gamma of colors that creates the colors on your tv)then the light of the lamp goes through the DMD board which is a chip composed of around 2 million pixels that creates the images and colors.When it starts to fail it will create black bars,pixelation,color distortion or white dots on screens. Here's a video that will help you find where the DMd chip is located : Have a blessed one!

Mitsubishi ws48511 ghosting problem

You need to have the convergence output IC's replaced. These are large amplifiers which control where the red, green and blue beams land on the picture. When they fail you will get colored ghosts. This is a very common problem for any projection television. Any reputable tv repair shop can do the repair in your home and the average cost of the repair is between $225 and $325.

The convergence chips in your tv have gone out. They control the three picture tubes and align them so that they create one picture on your screen. I recomend having a qualified technican replace them and realign you convergence. Thanks.
