Adjust your set's convergence to fix a double picture.

Projection television monitors may display a double picture along the vertical or horizontal. TV repair experts may charge hefty fees for fixing this problem, but most users can fix it themselves by adjusting the television monitor's convergence. To maintain a good picture, users should adjust the convergence once every three months.


Step 1

Consult your television manual to determine how to adjust convergence. If you don't have the manual handy, press the "menu" button on the front of your TV or remote.
