This is a convergence problem that can be either bad connections at the convergence ICs or defective ICs. If you can solder, you can fix this yourself. First try resoldering the pins on the convergence ICs. If that fails to resolve the problem, replace the ICs. These ICs are large and black and attached to a heat sink and should be marked STKxxx

Keep us posted.

I have an8 year old toshiba 57h81 projection tv. I am seeing pink and green double shadows around images. Any thoughts? Cost to fix? Thanks.


Have you tried the convergence procedure from the on screen menu? If the red and blue don't want to adjust when you do this then you most likely have bad convergence IC chips which can be replaced for about $50-75 in parts and $200+ in labor. If you have experience with electronics and soldering you can do this yourself. If not  leave it to a TV tech.

But it will not be cost effective one .

Ghosting of the image


The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

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,Pioneer2_bing.gif Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get a convergenece repair kit with 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 - 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

You can see some more examples and find a fix herebb0cf99.png http://www.fixya.com/support/r2861467-solution_video_looking_whiteish_dull

Green/Blue distorted Colors


Color issues are harder to solve without seeing the problem. It sound like the red amplifier on the crt board is bad. Is there any red in the picture at all? If not, that will be you problem

Ghosting in red ,blue & green


Sounds like an allinment problem with the color projection you can allin yourself via small screws on color tubes in rear. but be careful as tv needs to be on to do it.
