Trty re-soldering the circuit board that contains the STK convergence modules. They're on the center circuit board attached to an aluminum heat sink that's about 8" long and 6" tall, about dead center in the circuit board. You may be able to recreate the problem (hour glass effect) by gently moving the heat sink (which the modules are connected to). This gives the hour glass effect on the picture and the advanced convergence screen. This is an indication that the modules pins aren't solidly connected (meaning soldered) properly. Remove the circuit board and clean the old solder off & resolder the modules pins to the circuit board reconnected the board and then retest by again pushing on the heat sink. This is a caused by a minimum effort (a.k.a. minimum cost) solder job, probably done in some 3rd world sweat shop. The "factory" job was good enough for 3-4 years but the heat (and these modules do create a lot of heat) and stress created from repeated use eventually takes it's toll, weakens the pin connections and our problem occurs. take the appropriate cautions working around the high voltage of the set & use a non-conduting piece of wood to push the heat sink when we doing tests. Best of luck, hope ya fix it.

The reset procedure is usually documented in the owner's manual. But if you can not locate that, please update this with the model number of hte set and we'll get that info for you. Please note that the procedure is relatively simple, but dependent upon the model number.

It is. And I hope you some cash set aside for this extremely costly repair.
I once had a rear projection TV and was told by the repairman that each of the 3 flourescent lamps run about $200.00 to replace.
Needless to say I did not get it fixed

My mother-in-law sent me her unit with the same problem. The problem i had was you couldn't really read anything on the screen in the setup menu. I finally got lucky and got in the right menu and set everything to default settings and it went right back. Here are the steps to reset it without reading it.
1. remove all tapes and discs
2 if your unit scans for channels when you turn it on press return once
3.if it doesnt go to channel scanning you should have a blank screen
4.press the functions button once
5.press down twice
6.press the enter button
7.press the enter button again
8.press down once
9.press right once
10.press down 4 times
11.press enter once
12.press up once
13.press enter once and the double image should be gone
14. press the functions button twice to exit
hope this works for you
