    Just turned it on this morning and have 3 pictures all like ghosts behind each other.

    Have had a look at convergence in the general menu but instead of the usual colours I have pink & green & all shifted to the right.

    Any ideas what's going on with it?

    Has it been moved or knocked?

    Unplug the set completely from the mains and leave for half an hour.

    Re-plug it in, and check again.

    A "cold" reset may kick it back to normal.

    I assume from the description of the problem that this is not a DLP machine,but a CRT based RPTV.

    You've presumably done a user level convergence,from what you've said....did the convergence actually fail to do anything to correct the problem?....if so,then you do have a major problem,and if the set is in warranty,I would strongly advise you to call someone out to fix it.

    There are links here to doing service level convergence on Toshiba CRT based RPTV's,but none of that is for the faint hearted,or those with a warranty,as entering the menu will invalidate your warranty,and potentially erase a lot of the default settings if not done carefully.

    The warranty may include the eventuality of not being able to fix it,but at that age,there should be parts readily available...good luck.

    They are pretty complex pieces of gear when you take into account focus,convergence and all of the electrical aspects as well....if you are without it for a while,at least it should be fixed and you should know more by Monday...good luck.
