Your convergence has failed. This is a very common problem on most projection tv sets. You can read about it here on fixya using this link

You can see the red blue and green lines on my tv it is like it is out of sync


I'm not sure what you mean by the "lines". If you mean the image looks like "double" (or triple!) vision, then you need to adjust the red/green/blue convergence. This is especially noticeable with white images on dark background (like text of credits). If this is it, check you manual or explore your menu via the remote. Sometimes convergence can be a problem if the tv was moved or experienced large changes in temperature... or sometimes all by itself!

Samsung HCN4727W Rear Projection TV, green screen, audio works


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,Akai2_bing.gif,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link 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

I am getting a double image on my 48 inch television how can i get rid of it? it is showing colors green and red on double image


Assuming that your TV is a rear-projection TV, then it sounds like the separate red, green & blue tubes aren't set correctly.

Each tube needs to be alligned exactly to produce the image on the screen. If any of the 3 are mis-alligned then the effect you describe is caused.

Somewhere in the menu settings, will be an option to set the Convergence. This option will allow you to set the allignment of all three tubes.

Older sets do not have this option, and need to be adjusted via controls on the main PCB.

Double Image Red and Green


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

  • 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 common problem.

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 email and they will put one together for you. Their kits includes photo instruction guides, original Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.

Its a convergence problem for sure ,,,if you cant move the red or blue (green is stationary) then your problem lies on the convervence module.. requiring ....mostly new output ICs like STKs your going to need a tech, for convergence is a common problem with rear projectors and requires patience and a expert to get it back just right. good luck
