This sounds like one of your convergence IC's has burned out. A convergence IC should be replaced and the set realigned by someone with experience in convergence circuits.

Hi, please help me solve double image on ricoh aficio mp c2551 color machine.

Without a picture I can not be 100% sure, but in most cases it is related to offset from the fuser.
The hot roller is dirty, and will transfer a second "copy" of the image. The distance between each image is equal to the circumference of the hot roller.
The hot roller will then have to be replaced.

ghost image aka offset-2rhlv5r3sdqqpeuzs0ozcjtp-5-0.gif This is an example of how it may look with ghost image/offset.

Hi have a Sony Bravia 40" full HD LCD TV. It is only 2 1/2 years old and the picture has started playing up. When you switch on the TV no the images on the screen are slow and have a slightly red tint...

Hi your screen is defective you can check with the manufacturer to see if they have one or check some of the parts stores online. To find the screen you need to part number of the screen. It is located on a white sticker on the back of the screen. You might be able to find one at

Hi lazicku
I`m going to help you with your plasma tv but first;

Just read your comments and the first thing to do would be to check the voltages "VA" and "VS" .
The value of those voltages will be written on a sticker at the back of the display panel itself and should read something like VA 60(volts) and VS 190 or more.
You will need a voltmeter/multimeter to check those voltages(va,vs) indicated on the large connectors of the power supply.
If you are up to it,let me know and i will help you

Sony KV-32FS12 Component Video 4 Has A Wavy Picture

sounds to me like the differnence between watchiing in progressive and interlace. these older tube tv's are not capable of displaying a progressive scanned image. like the first dvd players. check your video out settings on your ipod to make sure its an interlace output.

Please help

Either the logic board or the power supply have failed and in either event I would strongly urge that you not even attempt the repair and just go purchase another (BETTER) Tv... I don't often tell people this check my posts. But that unit is simply riddled with problems and VERY VERY difficult to get parts for.. Samsung or Hitachi have some good bottom end LCD's (we in the industry call throw-aways) comparable in price and FAR better Tv's than the one you have there...

Sorry, I haven't been on here for a while.
I haven't found the cause. I find that leaving it switched on overnight cures it.
