See attached photos and if you have similar problem it is convergence circuit.

Good news: I have start to finish, step by step instructions for this repair in this set----they tell you everything you will need and exactly how to do it.

Total parts cost from a site I use would be well under 25 dollars.

If the pictures are like your set (no two look exactly the same) and you want the instructions rate this solution as very helpful as I do this here for free.

Left unplugged overnight, then plugged back in. Now have image back and have ran thru the convergence menu on consumer menu, but still have image as you have shown above, thank god for folks like you.

    Fixya does not work in this way. I am happy you liked the solution but what you need to do is post a question of your own, you can in the title mark it ATTENTION SD TECH and if I see it, (I am in California) I will be glad to help you.

    You have several choices--you can post it in the free section or there are several levels where you pay for an answer, in the free sections some experts will bid on this to get you to decide if you want to pay or want a free answer.

    There are rules here which do not want help given to someone who did not actually post the question.

Picture ghosts shows 3 images like it is out of focus colors also ghost in 3


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. 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, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith 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 - makes a chirping sound.
Problem #2

Another common problem is dull or washed out video.
Your TV may have one or more of the following symptoms....
  • Dull looking picture
  • White looking picture
  • Halos around objects
  • Red/Orange looking picture

Ghost image in different color from main image - text appears "doubled"


Use the remote to access the menu and you'll be able to POSITION the colors horizontally and vertically .
You should be able to align with the other colors to make it sync'd.

The picture is double pictured with what appears to be a ghost


projection sets on occation need to be re-alligned. check your owners manual if you have one and re-align your lamps to the test screen that is displayed when you press 'menu' from your remote or from the front of the tv. This should fix alot of it and you may find the color adjustments may need adjusting after re-aligning your lamps. hope this helps. I had one and that sounds like the 'ghost' images I had till I did this.
