Double picture is common problem of rear projection tv that appears due to failure of convergence output ICs. These chips got bad because of heat and high amount of current consumption.
Your tv got convergence output ICs problem that will be replaced to fix the issue.
Let me know if you are handy with electronics stuff repair and can remove/ install parts in circuit board with soldering iron and want to repair tv by yourself in $100
If you are not comfortable with do it yourself then local tv repair shop will fix it for you and repair would cost you around #200 to $250
Thanks.

Every time I unplug my Panasonic or the power goes out my tv won't turn on for a couple days. Then it'll work till we unplug it again or the power goes out again


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.

?Check the cables, connectors and connections.

Take it to a repair shop.

I have a 32" RCA LCD tv , rlc3210 power input says


Is it hooked up with HDMI cable?

If so try unplugging the HDMI cable and re plugging the cable in, sometimes those cables work loose and if they are not tight, it will cause your screen to flicker. Happens to my TV once in awhile.

Picture works on tv but not dvd only sond works


Should be one of 2 problems:
  • Connections in wrong spot - double-check to make sure all cables are in correct inputs and outputs
  • DVD may be set to display video through a digital conneciton instead of analog (or vice-versa)
If it's not the connections, then try unplugging the DVD player, hitting the power button couple of times, plugging it back in, this may force it back to default settings (if you're not using DVI or HDMI connection).

My TV is showing a double picture


If the picture looks like a 3D one, the problem is a convergence issue. This can be as simple as poor connections at the pins of the convergence ICs or defective ICs. If you can solder you can probably fix this yourself. Please note that there are potentially dangerous high voltages inside the set even when unplugged.

If you wish to attempt the repair, please update this and I will provide additional details and instructions.

My XBOX 360 has a Sound but no picture issue.


Well the main solution that you're going to get from Microsoft is to unplug everything from your console and your TV and then wait a couple minutes and plug it back in while everything is off. If the problem still persists, instead of buying a new 360, try borrowing a friend's AV cable and see if that works. Try not to unplug or replug anything while the console or TV is still on. Or it could just possibly be all of the jostling around in your suitcase and nothing has come loose enough to stop working until now. Sorry I can't be more helpful, these are just some ideas.

Screen showss double picture


Good Day, cs81801;
It sounds like the TV's Convergence Circuit has failed.First, try
to reset TV by unplugging TV from A/C source, for 2 to 5 minutes. Then plug TV back into outlet. Also, try the Magic Focus button on front of TV.
Still no work? To fix yourself call 1-800-458-6053 and ask for KIT 10. This will provide you with all the parts you will need. These are soldered in parts, or call an Authorized Service Center and have them give you a written estimate b4 repairs are performed. Cost? between $450 to 650 depending on your location and Service Center. Good Luck, big IRISH.

Tv won't come on


Sounds like the typical power surge created by the outage has caused a power supply problem inside your TV. IF that is it, there not much you can do yourself.
