This is a very common failure on Projection TV sets.

  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.

There seems to be two problems with the unit. The first symptom indiates your convergence IC's needs to be replaced. The second symptom coud be a several things, 1. Bad connections on the Crt board of the green tube, 2. The 200v screen bias voltage supplied by the flyback could have bad connections on it. Seems you have intermittent cold solder joints. Check the D board around the Flyback area for bad connections, or old grey looking solder connections all should look shiny. 3. The Green Crt maybe going faulty, the lines going thru the picture are scan lines and indicates that the Screen controls are to high. But i know you have'nt adjusted these so i would suspect the Green Crt is Faulty. But check solutions 1&2 first, One way to find out if its bad is to unplug the green crt board from the tube and turn the set on if it stays on and does'nt shut down then it is faulty, also while turning on look at the crt's neck for sparks which indicates arching in the tupe and will need to be replaced. Replacing the Convergence IC's will solve the distorted pic issue.

Double vision screen


This is most certainly a display problem, as in, a problem with the LCD panel. I used to fix 4 or 5 LCD's a day and had a few with the same problem. It can be fixed by being replaced.

You can see the red blue and green lines on my tv it is like it is out of sync


I'm not sure what you mean by the "lines". If you mean the image looks like "double" (or triple!) vision, then you need to adjust the red/green/blue convergence. This is especially noticeable with white images on dark background (like text of credits). If this is it, check you manual or explore your menu via the remote. Sometimes convergence can be a problem if the tv was moved or experienced large changes in temperature... or sometimes all by itself!

My tv is green and red and shows everything in double vision it a samsung sp42w5hfx


thank you for visiting fixya. i would first try to go to my television menu with the remote and try to solve my problem. it seems to have convergence problems. if you would go to the part of your menu that says convergence then you would see some crosshatch patterns. try to get these patterns to become one if they are off centered. they should turn white when you have centered them up. this should solve your problem. if it does not then write back and we will go to the next step. this should save you some money and time. please rate my solution

Screen blury,very pink,green edging on picture almost colorless!


This would be a convergence issue you can run the convergence setup that is in your user manual if that does not work you are going to need service.


thanks
