Re: tosh widescreen ghosting vertical lines

There is no convergence adjust in a 32" tv. Convergence is done when there is more than 1 picture tube, ie; 50" projection sets have 3 tubes so convergence can go out. post the model number of your set and we can help more, BMW Rider

The TV is showing the same image twice, next to itself. Basically a duplicate image right next to it. Two on the same screen. There is a 4 inch black bar going down the screen and everything is in black...

Either your TV is not tuned properly, or the signals it gets is weak. We will call the type of fault as "Ghosts". There are mainly to reasons for this fault. One is the above said; improper tuning. Other one is, your TV gets a reflected signal into it from somewhere near. It is mainly due to reflections of the signal from a high rise building near to you or some otherways. If it so, you have to reorient the antena, and should try to replace its position, to an other position.
You should do this only after retune your TV once again. Just go through the manual of your TV, and put it into "autotune" mode, and wait for sometime, till the tuning process completes. Then check it again, whether there is "Ghost" still is or not. If it is there, replace and reorient [Turn it towards the TV transmitter. If it is a Yagi type, its short cross bar must point towards the transmitter].
For more clarification, you just give your TV, signal from your DVD player or any other source and be sure that there is no "Ghost" this time. If it prevails this time also, your TVs video IF stage has some trouble, and it needs more testing equipments, that you can't do it by yourself at your home.
There is no other checks to be done. Ok.

Visual transparent lines at top of picture

You have a vertical output circuit problem. This was common for Philips' sets. Have a repair shop check it out. Should not be too expensive to repair.

White Horizontal Lines @ the top of my 32" Sharp Black Box TV

This Problem is usually caused by Leaky Capacitors in Vertical deflection circuit.
If you are handy with electronics,
Get a can of FREEZE Aerosol.
Open the Back Cover.
Put a mirror in front of TV.
Locate the Vertical Circuit.
Turn the TV on.
Spray FREEZE on top of individual Capacitor to see if it corrects the problem.
If it does, Replace that Capacitor.

White lines & inverted picture at top of CRT TV image

This problem is normally the Vertical filter capacitors. You need to have them changed before it burns out the Vertical Chip.

Repaiur or replacement? It's Your call! If you know Solid State repairs, then worth a try. Most likely a bad Electrolytic capacitor in the Vertical Oscillator / Output section. Do not waste time identifying faulty one, but change all at one go. Even if one is faulty, the others must have started drying up, and will cause problems in the future.Remember "An Ounce of prevention is better than......"
