Rusty is correct...take a look at this video to help determine if you have a true convergence problem and how to make the convergence adjustments with your TVs original remote.

Hope this helps!

Hi,
Your convergence circuit is out. There are 2 big ic chips labeled STKs and possibly a pico fuse (it will look more like a resistor) that is open.You can buy kit online that has parts needed to fix as well as having a guide to walk you through how to repair it. If you get someone else to repair you will probably pay over $300. tvkits

Colors on the screen are messed up with ghost HITACHI


Its not clear what kind of tv you have but it appears to be older rear projection tv with three picture tube. This problem does occur due to the convergence board going bad. Needs professional help to repair unless you know a lot about soldering ICs. Check out at www.fixurtvs.com for more answers on this problem, repairs and costs.

My projection tv has ghost pic you can see three dfferent color lines


Go into the tv menu and look for "convergence" this is a setup issue that can sync your colors. Projection tv's have 3 projectors inside, each a different color, if they get out og sync it can cause a blue or red ghost. In your tv menu you can look for noise reduction and turn it on also scan velocity modulation turn that on as well. These can all be found in the menu under picture or setup.

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.

Screen lookes like colores separating


This is what is known as convergence. a projection tube ussally has three picture tubes.. red green blue. they all have to align. the concave picture indicates complete loss of convergence or convegence power supply. First question on these sets Do you have the convergence option in the customer menu under setup. if you do not this is a indication of the common "FL231 fuse problem" and inexpensive simple repair. I have wrote and artilcle on this under my tips and trick section. If you do have the option then next does autoconvergence work. in you case i would not think it work. under blue and red manual convergence does the crosshairs move. if not then this is indication of convergence power supply board. if they move at all this may indicate a convergence amplifer problem.

Red and blue colors go across the screen. picture looks concave.


Greetings joanne7,

The issue you are having could be caused by your television needing the convergence adjusted. During production your televison has the three picture tubes that are converged to form a single image on the screen. Over time these can come out of adjustment.
If you go to this link http://download.jazel.net/misc/filecache/b8/b89bca4c8b740315d378e8ed030461c5_1227-517SeriesOwnersGuide.pdf and check pages 57 and 58, it gives you a very detailed guide on adjusting your convergence. I am aware this model number is slightly different than yours, but I own a 47" Mitsubishi and this is the exact procedure we use to do our convergence so I am confident it is fairly universal.

I hope this helps!

Mitsubishi projection tv


I have a similar problem. I have tried to fix the convergence via the remote and that has not helped. My three colors are separated and the edge of the picture is bent in toward the center. I am going to try a hard reset but i suspect the convergence IC are fried. Since the set is not HD, I will probably replace it if the hard reset does not work.
