    I am having the same problem double image of the red. They want 130.00 just for a service call and said it could be up to 500.00! I think I might as well buy a new tv for that price!

Do not adjust any knobs as instucted in the previous thread if you TV have a convergence problem. Doing so will only make things worse. The blog does however show you how to fix other common problems with these sets.

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem

  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.



You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a commonDouble IMAGE of RED - 2c07611.pngbr />

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.

Your tv has a convergence problem there is a small chance that you might have bad solder connection on the convergence ic's but most likely the ic's are bad and if they are you should check the resistors in the convergence

The picture has colored shadows and doubled images. People are doubled shadows are red green purple. I would like to know if it worth fixing the tv is about Ten years old. Thank You


In a nutshell, the convergence ICs have failed. The cost to fix by a service company is likely about $300. You may find someone who does it on the side for around $150.

If you are happy with the picture, you like the tv, then $150 might be worth it.

It is possible to do this repair yourself if you have an electronics background.

Problem #2 CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.

If the convergence controls don't fix the issue then the convergence circuitry is most likely faulty. A Toshiba repair center will be able to get you an estimate for repair.
