Colors on tv are seperating. looks like double images.

Hi, Try the auto convergence or auto focus to eliminate the problem, if this does not work, you may have to get the TV repaired, the common problem are the power amplifiers that correct the color convergence, that is why you get color shades or ghosts in the images.

Have you used the color convergence settings on your TV?When the settings are off you will get this effect sometimes if the TV was jarred pretty hard it goes out of alignment.There should be a setting on your menu.If that doesn't help it may need re aligned by a repairman.

Your set has what is know as "convergence problem" because of the bowed lines and ghost in different colors,is really not an easy solution,the set should have 3 amplifiers(one for each color)and they need to be replaced with an exact replacement,sometimes just by replacing them the aligment should be close but soemtimes you nned to get into the service menu to do some adjustments,the amps(IC's) are mounted on heat sinks and all 3 have the same part number on its face,they normally read STK--- ---,every set uses different amps,If you are familiar with tv service you have now a place to start working but if you are not too familiar be safe and call for help from a servicer.Let Us know if you need more information.
