The projection tube image appears on the screen in three layers (red, green and blue). If the three layers do not converge, the color will be off and the picture will be blurry or doubled.

This issue can be resolved using the FLASH FOCUS feature of the television. Information about the FLASH FOCUS feature is available in the manual included with your television. Manuals are posted on your model support page.

If the issue is still unresolved after performing a FLASH FOCUS to adjust the television convergence, service may be required.
