Good Day, sh28;
Sounds like bad convergence IC’s, chips. Hit recommends using STK392-150’s and replacing the bias resistors.
Good Luck, Big Irish.

We have a Panasonic PT-56wx53 projection TV that has a double image problem. We have tried to fix the issue with the convergence feature, but the blue color will not line up, red and yellow working fine. ...


Does this problem happen all the time ? What I mean is , if your watching the local news thru your cable/sat box does ot happen, or just when using aux imput. Either way, double image, or shadowing, is usually caused by a defective wire. Troubleshoot each unit, unplug everything and start from scratch.

Yellow and blue shadowing, double image


It a 100% convergence problems.Convergence problems very easy diagnose.The picture look like 3D,colors lines don't lines up.Fuzzy,out of focus.Convergence controls don't work to lines up any colors cross.
WS-55511 uses a single convergence IC chip---a STK-393-110.
IF convergence is off and will not adjust it needs along with any of the 3.9 ohm resistors that protect it to be replaced.
What happens in these and most projection sets is the chip is mounted on a large metal heat sink with fins to keep it cool----a white grease is applied to the back of the chip to quickly transfer heat--after some years the grease dries out from the heat and the chip fails.
Considering you can buy the IC on Ebay for about 14 dollars plus shipping (I can tell you the best seller there to look for) if you or someone you know can do the repair you can save the set and a LOT of money.
Most shops are going to get 200-300 for this repair

Double imaging or shadowing


Projection TV sets have two very common problems listed below.

Problem #1) Convergence


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,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*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

Zenith HDTV 52" double image shadowing all letters


Bad chipset. Possibly a failed solderpiont. More than likely a bad chip. If the set is relatively new, get it repaired, shouldn't be too expensive. Figure 200 or so.

Panasonic PT-51HX41 rear projection tv showing shadow/double images.


Unplug the TV from the ac wall outlet for about 4 minutes then plug it back in and turn it on. If it still has a double image then tell me if it's affecting the menu screen from the TV (not the cable menu). And is the double image in red and blue?
