Picture not clear-double imaging streaks of green arcing across the screen

Double imaging of picture streaks of green arcing across the length of screen. This has started to happen gradualy and if i turned the TV off and back on it would fix it self....well not anly longer.

Anyone know what the problem maybe and if it is something that a somewhat hand person can fix. I'm not electrically hand tho!

This is the most common problem with projection TV's, you have a convergence problem, Most sets will have two or three convergence Ic's your model only has one, the problem could be as simple as it has unsoldered itself and needs to be re soldered, or most likely it simply failed and needs to be replaced. If your handy with a soldering it is a fairly simple thing to do. The convergence Ic is mounted the the huge heat sink and has a part number on it of STK393-110 on the board its in location IC8C01, try re soldering all the leads first, if that fails the order Part# 267P155010 from www.vancebaldwin.com and replace it

I have a philips projection tv, there is a green hald circle at the bottom of the screen also the picture has double images and very yellow and red. I just bought this from someone who keeps telling me its...


It sounds like multiple problems. First of all these sets are famous for bad coolant between the tubes and lenses causing the picture to be degraded causing the foggy picture. The fluid can be changed to clear up the halo's. The double images are convergence issues. Most likely both convergence amps need to be replaced. I hate to say it but it sounds like you got a money pit. Good luck. Thanks for using fixya.

Blue streaks across picture


Can you describe in a little more detail what the symptoms are? Are the streaks thin lines or are they large thick swashes of Blue? Is yur video still visible? Sounds like it may be the blue convergence amps or the resistor tied into the amps. is there anyway you can post a picture of your screen distortion?

PT-47WX, Blue streaks across the screen?


It is not a bulb. It is a picture tube. If there are thin blue lines across the entire screen, not just the edges, and the picture itself looks too blue, it means that the blue picture tube is being driven too hard. This could be because the blue screen voltage is too high, the boost voltage on the blue picture tube is too low, or the video output is leaky or shorted. If the picture has what looks like blue arcs and double images on one or more sides of the picture, it means that one of your convergence IC's has burned out and needs to be replaced. These are things that should be tested and serviced by a qualified tech, so allow an experienced tech to handle it for you.
