Hello it sound like the convergance ic may be the problem these chips sit behind the tuner board connected to a metal frame called a heat sink they are soldered in. also you will have to check the resistor in front of the chips also check the 2 capacitors at either end it would be best to get a quote from and engineer good luck

Have green and red ghost lines that are permanent on my old sony grand wega TV 50e 200a rear protection tv Help would be appreciated will repair on my own just no idea what to change


First try convergence setting in menu. If convergence adjustment will not move the lines then you probably need convergence output IC's and probably two fuses.

Your TV's Convergence may be out of line. To adjust this do the following.

1) Press the Menu button on your TV/Remote
2) Scroll through and select the "Advanced Features" Menu.
3) Select Blue Convergence
4) Use the V keys on your remote till the cross hairs are all lined up in the middle of the screen and the center one is white.
4a) You can use the "Video" button to switch between the red & blue cross hairs.

Double vision on the 52 inch tv in red and the top sags down a couple of inches like a smiley face smile


Resolder the connections on the high voltage transformer. There are 3 fuses mounted to the right of this transformer. They look like 3 brown boxes. Replace the center one if its open. ABOUT 1/2 AMP pc mount fuse pico fuse will do. Common failur eon this tv.

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.

Tv duplicate image


your guns are off and need to be adjusted. your 3 guns (red, green and blue) are off and that would explain the funny colors and shadows. Have a tv tech come out and have a look, they can fix it for a reasonable price.

GOOD DAY ND GOOD LUCK;

TRY THIS, IT WILL CORRECT CONCERN:

50V500 ONLY
GHOST: May be described as "Out of Convergence" but ghost is still attached to main image.
CONDITION:
A "ghost image" appearing to the left or right of images in the picture. Can be varying shades of a primary color (red, green, or blue) as well as gray. Can easily be seen in the 4 x 3 mode, at the edges of the picture.
CORRECTION:

To correct the problem, please do as follows:
  1. Access I2C Menu. (See page 57 of the Service Manual).
  1. To enter the I2C Service Menu, with power off, (on the front control panel) press and hold the INPUT button. Then press the POWER button for two seconds. The following Service Menu will appear.
03b_ghost_image01.gif Figure 1
  1. BEFORE CONTINUING: CONFIRM THAT THE R, G and B DRIVE ARE SET AT 40.
  • Be sure to press SELECT after each change to SAVE the new Data.


  1. Using the Remote Control joy stick, scroll down to next page (see Figure 2) until LCD ADJUST is highlighted.
03b_ghost_image02.gif Figure 2
  1. Move the joy stick to the right to cursor right once. The next page will appear with the word GHOST highlighted.
  2. Cursor right again, and a white screen will appear with a BLACK SQUARE in the center, as in Figure 3. You will see LCD ADJUST, followed by “SHP” and a number (value).
03b_ghost_image03.gif
Figure 3

  1. If the unit is out of adjustment, you will see a gray ghost on either side of the black square. Move the joystick to the right or to the left until the ghost disappears. The number values will change up or down.
    • If the ghost adjustment is off with a lower value, there will be a ghost to the left of the square.
    • If the ghost adjustment is off with a higher value, there will be a ghost to the right of the square.
  2. Once you get the square to look good without ghosts, press "SELECT" to save any data values that have been changed.
  3. Press the "EXIT" button three times to return to normal picture.
  4. Adjustment is completed
  5. I HOPE THIS WAS HELPFUL, big IRISH.

Convergence issue


Not sure how service menu will help you other then to do more adjustments such as 3D reform and such. Not real sure, just a long wild guess but the coils on the picture tube could possible be loose enough to change positions when heating up causing picture alignment to change. Might be a cheap service call.

Sudden discoloration, ghosting, bowed horizontal lines in top and bottom of picture


The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

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,Pioneer2_bing.gif Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links 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

You can see some more examples and find a fix herebb0cf99.png http://www.fixya.com/support/r2861467-solution_video_looking_whiteish_dull
