Sounds like your describing convergence ICs. They cost about 10.00 each and you will need to replace both of them. And possibly the resistors that power them total cost under 30 dollars if you do he soldering yourself. Hope this helps.

We are getting ghost images and the color is not correct


I have red concave lines going across the screen, plus wording appears double like a ghosting effect, this is ongoing from the time the tv is turned on until it is turned off. This started 3 days ago. Is it time for a new tv, its 9 or 10 yrs old now.

Double picture on Mitubishi WS-65511, Year 2002 TV


Hi,
Your tv requires replacement of STK393-110 as it creates convergence problem and its available Parts Store here. If you want to do the job at your own, you need to know good soldering skills or get service of nearest TV repair shop.

Double images or halos


Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.

The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded overs.

Samsung HCM5525W TV red blue outlines on images


The Samsung has bad convergence IC's most likly. This should be repair ONLY by a trained technician as a TV set is not a place to experiment or tinker with because of the extremly high voltage inside. This repair should cost you in the range of 250 to 400 bucks . Good Luck
