Rca 52' projection convergence problem

My 6 year old rca 52" just began having a convergence problem. The screen will begin "ghosting" in all 3 colors. When I try to adjust using the remote, it shuts the tv off. when it comes back an its ok 50% of the time. The other 50% its not, and the adjust projection option is gone from the menu. I think it may be some kind of power problem. Any help would be appreciated

Re: rca 52' projection convergence problem

Its a good possibility that your convergence problem could for now be cold solder connections on the driver ICs on the convergence board. The longer you use it the more of a problem its going to surge those ICs till they go bad and maybe cause other componet falure as well. If your not a technician i would have this set serviced asap before it becomes a major repair Good Luck

Hi I have a 52" RCA big screen tv that is only 3 years old however we turned it on today and it is showing some red blue and green lines and the picture is blurry

Hello clara7,

This denotes a convergence problem. I would suggest that first you enter the menu of your TV ad try to do an auto converge on your set, if this does not work I would suspect that the convergence ICs have gone bad and need to be replaced. I would suggest that you have a qualified TV repair technician replace the convergence ICs in this set.I hope this helps,Shuttle83

Ghosting in red ,blue & green

Sounds like an allinment problem with the color projection you can allin yourself via small screws on color tubes in rear. but be careful as tv needs to be on to do it.
