Question about Televison & Video

SOURCE: Ghost images
I just got my ghost problem resolved by getting a technician to come by and all he did was to reconverge my TV.
The pictures are much clearer and the ghosting images seems to have been corrected.Give it a try and yours should be good again.

it is quite fixable and usually in your home; it is called convergence--kp57wv500 uses two STK 392-560 convergence Ic chips; both and any bad fuses or resistors around them need to be replaced and the set adjusted after.
I fix a lot of these sets in my area---if you call a shop you will pay 300-400----a lot of independent people will do it for under 250 in your home--shop around--now is the slow time of the year for tv shops---you could buy both IC chips on ebay for less then 13 dollars plus shipping---this is a normal problem in all projection tv sets--the chips have a white grease on the back of them designed to transfer heat--after several years it drys out and one of them goes bad---repair should take about an hour or so in your home---you should ask yourself if 200-300 dollar repair is worth while, could you replace the set for this? If the chips are replaced and the set adjusted they should be good for 4 or 5 years at the least.
