My wife and I were watching TV the other night, when all at once the picture went fuzzy, it jumps around a bit, and the images are doubled or overlapping. After TV has been off for a while when it is first turned on the picture is normal but after a few minutes the picture goes out and it starts all over again.
This comes at a bad time for us as this friday my wife has to start taking chemo once every three weeks until middle of November. She was planning on watching TV to pass time when she is not feeling good.
We do not have anyone close by to fix this problem. Is it something I could do myself if I new what the problem is? I am a do it your selfer.

Re: Fuzzy double overlapping images.
Good Day, alsharp;
I am very sorry about the condition of your wife, I hope she recovers totally and my prayers are with you, your wife and family.
Do not turn TV on, the problem may get worse to the point where the TV may go DOA.
It sounds like you have some poor connections on the TV's convergence IC's. Since, you say that you are handy you maybe able to fix this yourself. If you own a good soldering station / pencil.
The convergence IC's will be located on the right hand side of the TV, looking from the back. They will be attached to a large silver device (heat sink). The IC's have 16 pins on each one, there 2 of them, side by side. Remove old solder and apply new.
I hope this was helpful. E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info if you need it.

The TVs produce picture using entirely different methods. Usually the colors and especially level of black color are better on plasma, LCD will have some trouble various shades of gray and black especially shading on peoples faces etc.. This is not a defect in the LCD just a limitation in current technology.
Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.
What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.
