Question about RCA P46921 46" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

TV turns on and then, after a few seconds, picture changes to "double vision".

I actually have a model# P46920 BL. All of a sudden, I turn the unit on and the picture is clear but, after a few seconds, the picture turns to what is best described as double vision. I can turn the TV off and back on and the same process happens. It is always clear when turned on but eventually changes. Help?

Projection sets have two very common problems.

The first common problem is convergence


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Configuration Problems

Improperly configuring TV setting can cause problems. Verify the TV settings are set correctly. First, brightness and contrast should not be set to high or to low because this can cause poor picture images. Second, adjust the color on the TV when the picture displays colors poorly. Third, if you are having sound issues then check to make sure the volume is not muted or turn down all the way.

We recently moved the tv and now when we turn it on it has double vision. It kinda looks like a 3d movie. What could be the issue? Is it worth fixing?


Hi,
If tv picture was fine before moved then check dry/ cold solder joints/ connections on convergence output ICs and nearby circuit area.
Local tv repairman will resolder loose/ dry solder connections to solve double vision picture problem.
TV worth fixing if picture is good.
Thanks.

Philips HD/TV rainbows the picture at the bottom of set.


Hi, the convergence circuit is getting ready to fail, fix it NOW and you may get away with just resoldering the STK`s, soon they will overheat and short then it`s going to be 250-300 to fix it depending on your area rates, gl, video-tek

Double vision


Hello my name is willie. I see this problem alot on these units at the shop. And from what you describe. THis might be the very common problem with the fl231 fuse. this is a very fine fuse that blows due to bad solder connections. If u can solder and get this very special fuse then this is a very easy simple repair. But the first question you can answer to determine if this is true. is that when you go into customer menu then setup do you have a convergence option in the menu if you do not it is definatley this fuse. if you do then it will be something else like convergence power board. let me know if it is and i will see if i can talk you through the repair.

Help with my double vision


What model is your tv? Panasonics have a 'self-alignment' system in the menu, or a manual alignment that the menu will actually walk you through. Other System's will be able to do that also, such as Hitachi.
