Convergence problem colors are out of focus / TV showing Double

My television is only 4 yrs old, the problem I have is the other night I had a power surge, and the power was momentarly knock out, when power was supplied to the television nothing seemed wrong. When we awoke the next day, the television was out of focus, I tried the automatic convergence it went through it's process and nothing happened. I then tried to manually adjust the color and nothing moved I decided to called the television repairman the next day, He replaced both convergence modules, and when I turned the TV back on the same problem existed. how can i fixs this problem?

He may have replaced the IC's but in this business you always run across a bad order. use this link http://www.tvrepairkits.com/xcart/home.php?cat=2954 to order everything you need. They do a very good job at putting together a package for the consumer to be able to fix there television. You will recieve convergence IC's, resistors, thermal paste, and step by step photo instrucions.

Colors on tv are seperating. looks like double images.


Hi, Try the auto convergence or auto focus to eliminate the problem, if this does not work, you may have to get the TV repaired, the common problem are the power amplifiers that correct the color convergence, that is why you get color shades or ghosts in the images.

57HX81 projection tv,color is mostly red and picture is double.


This is a convergence output IC problem. convergence board would have to be removed - remove and replace 2 STK IC's and check the surrounding resistors. Shops usually charge between $200-$300

I know that I need a convergence power supply board.


Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projeciton sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....
  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the settings menu then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right. And you should be able to get the grid straight.

If you can't move them in all directions or cant move them far enough your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

Note: If you TV has as flash focus or magic focus button only try pressing the button. If it fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a fix

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses.
This is a a fairly easy DIY job if you are handy and can follow directions. You can get complete repair kits from TvRepairKits.com or click here. They have put together DIY repair kits that include the OEM parts and step by step photo instructions for each repair. If you are not handy or can't follow directions we would suggest calling a shop.
