RCA R56WH78 3D Color Spectrum

Hello my RCA R56WH78 TV has gone bad. The colors are all unaligned, giving it a "3D" look. I have read up on the issue and hear this is often a fuse that has blown. I know its around $400 to fix from a professional. I am going to be risky and try to fix it myself, but I need to know for sure its the fuse that is the problem. Also I don't know what website has good parts, I have read if you don't get it from the right place most of the time it will go bad very quickly. Lastly I need to know if anyone knows where to find the "Blueprints" of the inside of my TV [forgive my forgetful vocabulary=( ]
Thank you for your time and help!

Hello The common FL231 fuse problem that these set has can be identified by asking the question DO you have the convergence option under setup in the customer menu. If you do not then there is a 99 percent chance you have this. I have written detail repair instrucitons on this under my profile in the tips and tricks section of fixya. I use union electronics for parts but just google the part and you can find many distribitors of the fuse. should not cost no more than 5 dolars and if you can solder the repair shouldnt take more than an hour to complete. Be carefull and good luck. This repair is on you can do if you have any trouble let me know.

Hi,
You may have two problems with your TV. This TV has a history of a color wheel issue, was making grinding noise? Have you ever changed the lamp?
It may be a bad color wheel and the lamp, you may want to do a visual inspection.
It is easy to replace the lamp but more likely the color wheel is the problem.
The part# for the color wheel is 212184, the part# for the lamp is 260962

Best of luck

RCA has discontinued the color wheel for your model and its on nationwide back order, so you cant buy the replacement. You can get your color wheel rebuilt at the following link and the rebuilt color wheels are fully guaranteed.

Time to contact RCA again. Either you have been unlucky enough to have a second tube fail or you have had a color driver ic fail. Either way time to contact RCA for another replacement.
