Question about Sony KP-57HW40 57" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Pictures looks 3D-ish with small horizontal lines

My TV is having problems. Its almost displaying picture in 3D. Least it looks that way. When I look at the top of the picture where it says the input e.g. DVD or Video 2, normally it shows in green, but now it shows it in green with red slightly behind it, almost below it and to the right. Kind of hard to explain. It almost looks like those cheesy 3D glasses are on when I look at it. I'd like to know whats wrong with it to find out how much this might cost to fix, or how long maybe the warranty lasts on this TV. Basically anytime theres text on the picture it comes in blurry with the same text showing behind it off to the side. And the horizontal lines are mainly just on the top and bottom of the screen.

    One day, when I turned my TV off and then back on, many very clear red lines appeared in the upper portion of the tv, and appeared to be random and squiggly. I used the repair mode to converge it, and it now looks as though it is 3D. I popped off the back, but am unsure as to what I should change or how I should continue. The convergence is correct in random spots of the TV, but this is barely noticeable as the red bleeds all over the place. It is difficult to read things as they are incredibly blurry. In truth, it looks like an out-of-focus 3D movie.
