Sony 46 in. big screen picture problems

I have a 1992 46 inch sony rear projection big screen. it bought it used and it is starting to have some problems. when i first turn it on the screen goes from normal to blurry and starts to double image and triple image then flashes back to normal and starts all over agian..( looks 3D) but if i wait for it to warm up a little and hit it a few times it will stop for a while. but then ill leave it on for about 6 hours and it will start agian, i hit it pretty hard and it goes away.. its not anything i have hooked up to it. i have unhooked everything and it still does it on the video channels.. i love this tv so is there a uncostly easy fix for this that i could do myself? or am i going to have to take it to a repair man and could anyone give me a est. cost?

Picture too big for screen.

My Sony KDF E42 remote has a "wide" button that lets me scroll thru normal, zoom( too big), wide, and wide zoom. If yours has a simmilar button, try that. Otherwise try Googleing the owner's manual buy brand & model. Good luck.

Picture shadow on rear projection Sony big screen TV

You have 2 distinct problems that should be addressed separately. Please repost the Samsung problem. I will address the Sony problem here.

If the "shadow" makes the picture seem somewhat of a 3D one, the problem is with the convergence circuit. This could be as simple as bad connections on the pins of the convergence ICs or defective ICs. If you can solder and would like to attempt the repair, update this and I'll provide more details and instructions.

You need to have the convergence IC's replaced. A repair like this should run you about 300 bucks or so. In most places.

Can you post a picture of what the screen looks like? It could be convergence amps or a pincushion problem. The pic would help clarify the diagnosis.
