Its a Hitachi 43FDX15B 43" Projection TV purchased in 2003. Have not ried to correct this problem yet. I did however, have a technician come over and solder one of the lights inside once before. As I mentioned before, the picture is good, the problem is that red and blue lines outline the characters on the television.

If you have tried adjusting the convergence on the TV and it did not correct the problem then a repair will be needed. This caused by issues with the convergence ICs going bad. This will cause the problem you have described. There are usually two convergence ICs in a TV. Usually the 2 ICs and a couple of resistors have to be replaced. This is not normally a DIY project for most consumers. I would suspect the repair will be about $250 - $350 but this will depend on what is found to be defective and out of specifications. Small shops will often charge less than a large repair facility.
