You will need to get your geometry correction repaired. STK circuit has failed. You should be able to get repaired for under 300.00
If you know how to solder, you may be able to perform yourself.

Go to a unused video input and examine the screen----if you see blue with slightly curved trace lines the blue screen control for the set is set just a bit too high.

Triple colored ghosts

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Used samsumng hcp4752wx/xaa is showing triple vision

Not too familiar with this exact model but am very familiar with Samsung DLP. If this is a Rear Projection (3 CRT's R.G.B.) it is surely the convergence chips ($12 each X 3). If this is a DLP (Color Wheel @ 7000rpm) this is not good news as a DMD board for Samsung DLP is around $400 (not retail either, warranty part price).

What do I need to get for viewing HDTV

The TV you have will only process an HD via the component video connections. Your cable box needs to have component outputs and you will need to buy a component video cable to connect from the cable box component video outputs to the TV's component video inputs (should be 2 sets, #1 for up to 720p and #2 for up to 1080i...
