    A good friend of mine has a 61" Hitachi UltraVision Widescreen TV, I think its about 4 years old... The problem is something went wrong or out of focus on the picture.... Everyting else seems fine....

    The colors look kinda ghosted, like there is an image, then the same image a few millimeters off of that in a different shade... Its seems pretty much to me like watching a really bad or cheap 3d Movie....

    Not that we thought that would fix it, but we did clean the lenses (3) with a lens cloth.... That brightened it up a a lot but didn't help the actual image/color problem...

    Any tips or suggestions???

    If it suddenly went out ... then it is an indication that the convergence board is going or has gone.

    If the separation is small, then convergence in the user/service menu would help. Maybe.

    The picture problem happened over a few months rather than just turning it on and it was like that...

    Also, I don't remember seeing a convergence menu, but I'll look again tonight...

    Thanks for the reply!!!

    Sounds like the convergence might have drifted. I had a 51" Ultravision which used to drift quite a bit. It's been so long ago I no longer remember how to access the service menu.
