Good Day, kizzysep;
Curved picture, this indicates that you have a convergence circuit that has failed, if your TV is a rear projection. I would recommend that you contact an Authorized Service Center for your TV and have them give an estimate before repair.
Depending on the age of your TV it might be wiser to buy a new TV, but get an estimate first.
Good Luck, big IRISH.

The picture is showing a double image and is distored.


The problem you are refering to is more than likely a convergence problem. The convergence circuit in your tv is controlled by an IC (integrated circuit) stk392-110 and it makes the 3 colors (red, blue, green) line up/converge together to create a clear picture. You'll know when this part needs to be replaced because the picture you see is 3d looking and possibly bowed on the top or bottom or on the sides in any or all 3 colors.

Double focused, red and green, bow in picture top and bottom


hi
You have a convergence problem
If the set has auto focus and will not complete its cycle.
The Auto focus module is bad, (expensive)
If it completes and the problem is still there.
Then check for bad conv. drivers (stk****) or cold solder joint on one or more of the 3 drivers pins.

Philips 46-inch Rear Projection with bowed image?? slight distortion



You have a convergence problem. Here are some of the most common symptoms. 

Screen looks 3D
One or more colors can't be adjusted when when using the convergence menu. 
Screen is bowed in but stationary.

Solution: 
You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kit for your exact model. The kit inlcludes a photo instruction guide, original Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, etc. Everything you need to fix it yourself. Its an easy fix.

Red,Blue,Green Image


YOu have convergence issues. Ok first question. IN your setup menu do you have the convergence option/ if you DO not then it can be a specail fusable link. fl231 if you do. next question do the picture bow in at the middle. if you do then it possibly a convergence power supply issue. next if you go into setup convergence does the crosshairs adjust up or down left to right on both blue and red. I if so then theres is a chance that it can be a convergence adjusment or a amplifer problem AS always THIS SET CAN GENERATE LEATHAL 380 VOLTS EVEN WITH SET UPLUGED SO BE CAREFULL.

You have a convergence problem. Go to the convergence menu or consult the owners manual on the convergence procedure and try to correct i if you can.. However if the red image is bowed and or not linear you will probably need to call a technician to repair your set. Most likely the red convergence output chip has failed. This is a common problem with all CRT ( picture tube) rear projectors. Good Luck. Happy Easter

Curved picture and double images


I had noticed your question before posting mine, since it appears no one had given you a solution thought i would share the solution given to me. Two different techs told me the same thing it would need a new convergence board. I ordered my board today hopefully have fixed soon as it arrives. I noticed your question has been hear awhile but thought maybe if you still needed some help I would share. It is going to save me $300 doing it myself, but if you are going to try make sure to talk to one of the techs first on live chat. Goodluck
