Setting the convergence is not a user servicable item. Such adjustments need specialized equipment for proper alignment. Have unit serviced by pro/tech

My picture is doubled on my toshiba TN50V71 as if there is a shadow behind everything? Please help!


hi, sounds like a convergence issue. try this...
  • Look through your manual. Your manual will always give you the most specific directions for your particular model. Look for an "adjusting convergence" or "set manual convergence" section.

  • Enter the menu on your TV. Use the remote control and bring up the menu.
  • Choose "Convergence." This may be under "Picture Settings," "Function" or "Advanced Options."
  • Select a color. You will have red, green and blue to choose from. Do each one, starting with red.
  • Press "Enter." A crosshair pattern will appear on your screen.
  • Adjust vertically. If there is a horizontal red line visible, press the up or down arrow keys (or channel up or down) to adjust the convergence until the line is superimposed on the horizontal-center line of the white crosshair.
  • Adjust horizontally. If there is a vertical red line visible, press left or right (or volume up or down) to adjust horizontally. Do this until the line is superimposed on the vertical line of the white crosshair.
  • Save settings. It is important to save your settings when you are done, instead of simply exiting the menu.
  • Repeat these steps for all colors.
    good luck!

    Picture is distorted blurry


    Model number indicated is prone to convergence problems; red or blue shadows around writing or letters---

    The model indicated uses two of the STK-392-570 convergence chips; they are located on a large metal heat sink with fins at the front of the middle board inside the set.

    The board has to be removed to replace them.

    A pair of the chips can be purchased on EBAY (where I buy mine) for about 15 dollars-----total parts cost to fix set should be under 25 dollars.

    I also have repaired hundreds of these sets and have:

    Start to finish, step by step instructions for this repair in this set; they tell you everything you will need and exactly how to do the repair.

    I can if you request post the instructions here for you for FREE.

    I will attach a photo or two of typical convergence problems so you know if it is your problem and a photo of a typical convergence chip.

    If all this information helps you, rate this solution as very helpful here as I do this for free.

    Your TV most likely has a convergence failure. ( common problem )

    Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem


    • 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.
    Here are some photos of convergence problems.

    Here is a quick test....

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

    Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

    You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

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

    You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses. Its a fairly easy DIY job or you can call in a pro. If you want to do the repair yourself check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, email/phone support, etc.

    Do not adjust any knobs as instucted in the previous thread if you TV have a convergence problem. Doing so will only make things worse. The blog does however show you how to fix other common problems with these sets.
