If a DVD and the onscreen menu looks sharp and problem free, I would say it's the cable box. Since you only reset it, I doubt it has anything to do with the cables unless you removed them and didn't insert them properly or tight enough. Try a power drain on the cable box:

1. Unplug the product's power cable so that the device is not grounded to the house. Do not simply turn off the power-bar if one is in use.
2. Press and hold in the products power button for 1 minute to release the retained electricity from the capacitors and circuit board.
3. Plug the product back into the wall outlet rather than a power-bar to rule it out of contributing to the problem and turn the device back on. This will also reset the cable box again, but draining the power can do wonders.

Picture with rainbow colors


The convergence circuit is not working. There are bad solder connections on the flyback transformer and a small fuse has opened up. This is not easily done yourself unless you have a technical background but an RCA technician can fix this no problem.

Picture problem with rca 52 inch hdtv colors split not in focus


Hello, If your picture looks like a "3D image" you need convergence IC's . Red and or blue picture is not converging on top of the green picture. They are mounted on large, finned heat sinks. The # on the IC's starts with "STK-" followed by numbers.They are available through tritronicsinc.com for $15 to $35 each. Good luck.

If its only one color its the Convergence amp board that needs replacement. If its more than one color you cant control you need the Convergence power supply board. If you need parts for your model let me know and I will post a link.
