Our tv is showing green and purple outlines on screen and showing double words. do you know what the problem is? thank you!


Bad convergence ICs STK392-110s use 180s , you also need to CK pico fuses in front and behind STK ICs they will look like resistors but are Green or Yellow 5amps/6amps they are fuses.

I have a 61'' Panasonic tv that is showing green and red outlines around the figures on the screen. It originally started as just green outlines. Any ideas on what the problem is would be great. Thanks


The convergence is off. The convergence is basically the assimilation of the image on the screen from the three "guns" behind the screen. There should be a menu option to align the convergence in the image portion of the menu. If this does not fix the issue, then your convergence chip might be on it's last leg.

Purple/Green Outline surrounding picture


I have seen two different things cause this. The first and most common is the electrical failure of one or both convergence IC's. A handful of times, the data in the DCU became corrupted and I was able to enter the service mode, go to manual convergence and correct the one location that was off.

Camera showing/taking distorted images


According to many respected sources with far more expertise than myself, the symptoms you are describing also fall within the realm of Canon CCD failure. In Canon's Service Notice: CCD Image Sensor Advisory, they outline the most common symptoms (distorted images, LCD showing only a black screen, etc.). They have conveniently limited the description to the bare minimum. More symptoms of the failing CCD include: pictures appearing on LCD show up with severe color variations (pink-purplish or green tint), colored "streaks" or "lines" throughout pictures, and wavy distortions in image. Most of these symptoms include the color variations, but not always. The lines or waves can appear in any direction and with varying degrees of severity. Some LCDs do not go black, but turn totally purple. Here is a link to a very informative article that should clear up any questions you might have.
Digital Camera Repair Blog

If nothing else, call the Canon Customer Support Center at 1-800-828-4040. They will ask questions to identify whether or not you are having the same symptoms as described in the Product Advisory. I have been through this twice, and both times they were very nice and very helpful. Even if you don't qualify for the free repair, it didn't cost a thing to find out.
I hope this has been helpful.

Samsung HCM5525W TV red blue outlines on images


The Samsung has bad convergence IC's most likly. This should be repair ONLY by a trained technician as a TV set is not a place to experiment or tinker with because of the extremly high voltage inside. This repair should cost you in the range of 250 to 400 bucks . Good Luck
