That usually means your convergence ics are going out. Replacing those will get rid of the double imageing. If the color is faded realy bad that means your tubes are going bad. That repair is pretty costly. Tvs over ten years are usually money pits.

My grandfather has a Hitachi 50ux58b and is having double vision or shadowing -- whatever it's called and redness color fading-like. Was told it was a convergence IC that needs replaced -- uncle looked...


try not to do repair yourself. the tv holds high voltage even when unplugged. you could KILL yourself. If red is fading the convergence ic will not help. you need to replace all the guns. red, blue, and green. usually each tube or gun is around 300 dollars each.

The color is fading. i almost can't see the picture at all. Everything is turning green


you should really see an electronic technician , your problem is not that bad , just electronic parts getting loose ( must re-apply solder to them ) and this will solve you problem , some calibration have to be done also !!

MY SAMSUNG DLP MN HLP6163W PICUTURE HAS FADED


If you have had this unit for awhile it could just be the lamp. If the image does'nt brighten up you may have an issue with the light path. The color wheel produces the color. If there was an issue with the color wheel you would most likely have a black and white image.

Color fading, orangy red, video adjustments don't fix.


if it is a tube type unit you may not find a new tube they are almost extinct ,
also, most tube malfunctions are caused by improper voltage, only a qualified tech should work on the high voltage section of a tube tv,,, it can kill you even if it has Not Been Plugged in for a whole year

re-post with the make and model number for further assistance

PCN5425R Fading in and out


No It is not the picture tube.
First, I would suspect a bad solder connection (cold solder connection) to find this problem hit the side cassing to see if the picuture goes away or comes back.
Another way is take the back cover off and tap gently on the boards with something not conductive or your hair would look like mine. The most commond section is power supply and neer the Horizontal flyback transformor.
The horizontal transformor look at it, it's a big greyish darty little thing about 3" x 4" and stand up about 4" with a big red wire going out of it. Don't touch it, it has very high voltages, just look what it done to my hair I'm telling you don't touch it along with it's red lead's. Just look to see if it is arking if so replace it.

When you have convegence problem , it is mis aligment of the colours in the genmentry aligments.
I would suspect more in the power supply section.

Faded colors


If the picture is dark or messed up too bad, the magic focus will not function, are all the primary colors faded? RED GREEN BLUE? You might have a bad CRT, would call a service man to check out.

Faded Picture


I would have to say it does sound like the CRT is reaching its end. The thing that points this out that the picture gradually gets a little bit better as it warms up. It most likely isn't worth the cost to fix it.
