My picture is doubled on my toshiba TN50V71 as if there is a shadow behind everything? Please help!


hi, sounds like a convergence issue. try this...
  • Look through your manual. Your manual will always give you the most specific directions for your particular model. Look for an "adjusting convergence" or "set manual convergence" section.

  • Enter the menu on your TV. Use the remote control and bring up the menu.
  • Choose "Convergence." This may be under "Picture Settings," "Function" or "Advanced Options."
  • Select a color. You will have red, green and blue to choose from. Do each one, starting with red.
  • Press "Enter." A crosshair pattern will appear on your screen.
  • Adjust vertically. If there is a horizontal red line visible, press the up or down arrow keys (or channel up or down) to adjust the convergence until the line is superimposed on the horizontal-center line of the white crosshair.
  • Adjust horizontally. If there is a vertical red line visible, press left or right (or volume up or down) to adjust horizontally. Do this until the line is superimposed on the vertical line of the white crosshair.
  • Save settings. It is important to save your settings when you are done, instead of simply exiting the menu.
  • Repeat these steps for all colors.
    good luck!

    Tv out of foucs


    These procedures are from the owners manual, go into menu and then picture quality and then: Convergence The Convergence feature lets you adjust the TV’s three tubes. When the TV tubes’ images are precisely aligned, they create the color images you see on the screen. Over time, the picture can drift out of alignment (this is normal). If your picture seems fuzzy or has a yellow tint, using Convergence could correct this misalignment. Only one convergence is needed for all inputs, regardless of the signal format. Note: Make sure the TV has been on for at least 30 minutes (TV needs to warm up for best results) before starting Auto Converge or Red/Blue Centering. When you select the Convergence feature, a submenu appears with three options: Auto Converge Automatically aligns the projection lenses to self-correct color images. You’ll see flashing squares of color dance across the screen (this is normal). Note: After performing auto convergence, use the Blue Centering and Red Centering menus to fine tune convergence in the center of the screen, if necessary. Blue Centering Aligns the blue and green images to fine-tune the picture. Red Centering Aligns the red and green images to fine-tune the picture. Note: The ability to change channels is disabled when adjusting the convergence options. The TV must be tuned to a usable signal to converge the picture.

    Mitsubishi Medallion - The green convergence


    The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

    These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

    When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
    You can get a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links below.

    Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

    Problem #1) Convergence

    Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

    *Screen Looks 3-D
    *Colors wont align
    *Screen may look distorted or warped
    *No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

    Problem #2
    Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

    Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

    *Dull looking picture
    *White looking picture
    *Halos around objects
    *Red/Orange looking picture

    You can see some more examples and find a fix herebb0cf99.pnghttp://www.fixya.com/support/r2861467-solution_video_looking_whiteish_dull

    I have a Philips 51PW9303 Rear Projection TV that had blue shadows around the sides of the screen and now has a green and red bowed line at bottom. Does I need a convergence board to solve this?


    If the following doesn't work the tubes could be at the end of life:
    Adjusting convergence:
    Note: For best results, the Projection TV needs to be turned on for 15 minutes or longer before adjusting the picture tubes (convergence).

    To adjust the convergence of the picture tubes:
    1. Press the 'MENU/SELECT' button on the remote.
    2. Press CURSOR RIGHT to enter the PICTURE menu.
    3. Use CURSOR DOWN and RIGHT to select and enter MANUAL CONVERGE.
    4. Press CURSOR RIGHT to select CONVERGE RED or press CURSOR RIGHT and DOWN to select CONVERGE BLUE.
    5. A crosshair will be shown on the screen. If there is any red or blue fringe around the crosshair, use CURSOR RIGHT, LEFT, UP, DOWN to try and merge the fringe colors with the crosshair.
    6. Press the 'MENU/SELECT' button to return to MANUAL CONVERGE menu.
    7. Press the 'EXIT' button to exit the menu.
    If you are satisfied with the convergence you may stop now. Otherwise, you can continue and adjust the convergence more using mult ipoint convergence.
    To Adjust multipoint convergence:
    1. Press the 'MENU/SELECT' button on the remote.
    2. Use CURSOR RIGHT to enter the PICTURE menu.
    3. Use CURSOR DOWN and RIGHT on the cursor ring to select and enter MANUAL CONVERGE.
    4. Press CURSOR RIGHT and DOWN on the cursor ring to select MULTIPOINT RED or MULTIPOINT BLUE.
    5. A grid of crosshairs will appear on the screen. If there is any red or blue fringe around any of them, press CURSOR RIGHT to enter NAVIGATE mode.
    6. Use CURSOR RIGHT, LEFT, UP, and DOWN to move to a crosshair that has a color outline.
    7. Press the 'EXIT' button to enter ADJUST mode.
    8. Use CURSOR RIGHT, LEFT, UP, and DOWN to merge the color with the crosshair.
    9. Press the 'STATUS/EXIT' button to return to NAVIGATE mode. Repeat as necessary.
    10. Press the 'MENU' button to return to the MANUAL CONVERGE menu.
    11. Press CURSOR DOWN until SAVE MULTIPOINT is selected.
    12. Press CURSOR RIGHT to save the multipoint settings.
    13. Press the 'EXIT' button to exit the menu.

    Pictures look like they are in 3D


    it sounds like your convergence is off.

    you have Red, Greed & Blue projection guns
    through your menu's you will find adjustments for them ...

    set your green first then align then red and then blue to the green..

    when making this adjustment the tv should put up a caliration signal called a crosshatch
    a matrix of H and V lines to align

Going into maintence mode might have reset some settings.
