Question about Insignia 37" LCD Flat-Panel HDTV

Open Question

Blue Shadows Why would this tv all of a sudden start displaying blue shadows not only in the black parts of the screen, but also in the part of the screen that is actually showing the picture? The shadows are usually the person's head which radiates up to the black part of the screen. For example, you are watching a movie, and the ratio is 16:9 and you have a top and bottom part of the screen that's black right? Well, that is where these shadows appear, and now it just started displaying those shadows in the white areas of the picture. So what is going on?

    I will give that a shot. I'm really disappointed though, considering this is a brand new set, and definitely not cheap. I wanted to get this for my family, since we watch alot of movies and play games with the XBox 360, and it does have a beautiful picture for the money involved. I hope this works, since I really dont want to be without a tv while they tinker with it. Thanks...

My hitachi tv model 43fdx15b has a blue shadow


I tmay be your graphics card, but I would try and adjust your display via the Display Options probebly located somewhere on your Games Start Menu.

But like I say, it might just be your graphics.

I hope this helps.

Blue and yellow shadows appearing on my rear projevtion tv


The convergence IC's are definitely bad. This is not something you can fix yourself unless you know how to solder and are technically inclined.

Blue shadows on my philips projection tv


You have possibly contaminated fluid in your blue picture tube if it has a hazy look.Blacks and whites look bluish and whites have a blue bloom to them.The other problem could be bad convergence amps.This would be double image around letters on the screen.

Blue shadows & black screen with flashing red light


Your problem is the convergence IC's (part number STK392-110). They will need to be replaced as well as matbe a couple of burned resistors that will be right by the IC's. Due to the complexity of this repair as well as the alignment required after the parts are replaced. you may want to contact a tech. Let em know if I can be of further assistance. You can find a local tech by going to the homepage of FIXYA and inputting your zip.

Problems with my Mitsubishi hd1080


If the Blue lines are blurs or shadows, then your Convergence IC's are going or gone bad.
I have the same TV - it will be 4yrs. old in Dec. Mine started with Blue lines & shadows, then Red, Blue, Green Shadows. This is caused from over heating. The Convergence IC's have to be replaced.
I have had 3 TV Repair shops all quote me a price from $350. to $400. to repair. They all said 4 years is the usual life time for these IC's.
Replace the STK932-110amps with STK394-250-E or STK392-150 for greater reliability.
Use only Original Replacement Parts, there are some cheaper but won't last and can't take the heat.
If you are a "do-it-yourselfer" here is a link with the directions and pics.
