Picture looks like it is in 3D

Hi there. I was looking for a solution and I saw your post "does the red look like its 3D or is it just blurry let me know I may be able to help you".
This is what happened to me. Just overnight, the picture went from perfect to this awful 3D movie! It looks like there is an arc of red causing a double picture. Is there anything that can be done...cheap?! Thanks!

    I have the same problem. Was watching it last night and all was fine and then turned it on this morning and all the colors are out of adjustment. Any solutions?

    Left for a few hours, came back and the red is all out of whack, off to the right.

Yes you need to replace both convergence ICs. They are both STK392-150 you will also need to replace the 6 feed resistors. You will need ( two ) 1.8 ohm 1watt metal film resistors.
( one) 3.3 ohm 1watt, ( 0ne) 2.7 ohm 1watt, ( one) 4.7 ohm 1 watt, and ( one ) 2.2 ohm 1watt . The resistors are all 1 watt metal film resistors. You can get replacement ICs and resistors at the following link with free instalation instructions with pictures, plus free tech support.

This TV has 110 and 150 IC, replace with originals and leave resistors alone unless they are damaged. Replace resistors with original values from manual if burnt. 110 and 150 are both designed for specific situations with specific resistors in the circuit.

Picture is blurry


Can you clarify "blurry", is the color skewed or even 3d looking? I am here to help and if you can post a photo here that would help---see attached photos of convergence problems which can fit the description you gave:

Really blurry


Look in main menu for convergence and see if it will adjust--if off either adjustments or a bad chip---picture will look 3d and red or blue outlines around lettering etc.
