Re: my samsung rear projectiontv is showing in 3d

Hi, your convergence circuit has failed, the stk`s and any burnt resistors will have to be changed, if you know how to solder and un-solder proficiently and can use a volt meter it`s do-able if you don`t have this knowledge call a tv tech, generally runs $250 to $350 depending on where you live, call around and ask for estimates to fix the "convergence circuit", if you still have questions e-mail me back, Happy New Year, BMW Rider

I'm getting an overlapping of two colors on the screen.

It is common problem with rear projection tv and 3D type picture problem occurs due to failure of convergence output ICs, replacement of convergence output ICs will fix the issue and tv will again show correct converge picture as before.
Let me know tv model number written on back of tv if you want to fix tv by yourself as it needs soldering parts in circuit board expertise and if you feel uncomfortable working in tv circuit boards than local tv repairman will do this job for you.

Bulbs blown in samsung sp42w5hfx

Its hard to tell without actually knowing where the smoke came from. I doubt that any of the CRT's (bulbs as you say) caused the issue.
