Question about RCA HD56W66 56" HDTV
RED, GREEN, BLUE CONVERGENCE IS OUT. LOST THE OPTION IN THE SCREEN MENU FOR ALIGNING THE COLORS. THEIR USED TO BE AN OPTION #4 UNDER THE SCREEN MENU. NOW IT IS NOT THERE. I TRIED TO GO INTO THE MAINTENANCE MODE AND NOW THE PICTURE IS SMALLER BUT THE RED, GREEN, BLUE ARE STILL OUT OF WHACK. PLEASE HELP. I too have the same problem. Convergence is all out of wack and my convergence option is no longer in the menu option. My model # is HD52W66, my Serial # is G186C103N, and my Chassis # is ITC222A. I am hoping the answer is easy so i can buy the parts and fix it myself.
If you have a rca hd56w66 chasis itc222 you may have the common fl231 fuse problem. I see this everday at the shop. to determine if you may have this problem. i have written a little article on this subject. Consult tips and tricks section under my profile. Going into maintence mode might have reset some settings.

Projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both. Repair kits with instructions are also avail from www.TvRepairKits.com
Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out
Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.
This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy
Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.
