55PW9363 55 in. Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television: My Phillips big screen has double images and doubl...


Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projeciton sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....
  • 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.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the settings menu then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right. And you should be able to get the grid straight.

If you can't move them in all directions or cant move them far enough your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

Note: If you TV has as flash focus or magic focus button only try pressing the button. If it fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a fix

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses.
This is a a fairly easy DIY job if you are handy and can follow directions. You can get complete repair kits from TvRepairKits.com or click here. They have put together DIY repair kits that include the OEM parts and step by step photo instructions for each repair. If you are not handy or can't follow directions we would suggest calling a shop.

Press the Majic Focus button on the front. If that doesn't fix it then the convergence ICs may be bad.

Sony-kp51ws510 picture turns to a blue hue with flickering colors


hello there this is an easy fix unplug the tv and take the back of the set, once inside the set you will see 3 coloured bulbs and a big mirror in the back theses over time get dusty and dirty and if you smoke it can get really bad you simply just need to clean the bulbs and the mirror with computer screen wipes or some sort of window cleaner be sure not to get everything wet inside this should sort if for you nice and clear again!

Thanks For Using FixYa

Pincushion Picture on a big TV screen!!!


The set has 3 IC's(one for each color)strictly dedicated for the aligment of each color,if one them does not align is because is going bad or is already bad becuase picture can not be adjusted,the IC's can be identify because they are mounted on a heat sink and have the markings STK--- ---,they are all the same and need to be replaced with an exact replacement.If you are familiar with tv service you can replace them,sometimes the new ones need to be aligned from the service menu,you will need the service manual,soldering and unsoldering will be involved,If you are not too familiar be safe and seek the assistance of a servicer.
