Question about RCA 35V432T 35" TV

1 Answer

Colors are distorted, brightness excessive

I purchased a floor model RCA less than a year ago and the colors have deteriorated to the point where no adjustment makes the image right. The brightness consistently makes all the white in the image bleed and dominates the image, and the other colors are also warped (or just generally dark). I have been trying to understand the problem so any possible remedies and guidance would be appreciated. Schematics and\or a service manual would also be useful...even a website for understanding the way a TV works would be great! Thank you in advance for any and all help.

    THANK U STARGAZER...some basic questions...What is the "screen control" and how does it open up? How do I fix\replace it?

    As far as the fly back transformer, I think that could be the problem as the screen (brightness) control used to make the difference in the first couple of months and later no longer adjusted properly-although the focus still adjusts the image.

You may have a bad Fly Back transformer. The focus and screen(brightness) controls are located on this transformer. Some of the new RCA's have had problems with this transformer. If the screen control opens up the picture may either go dark or light which would cause your problem. Also a bad Picture tube could cause this. It shouldn't since the tv is not very old though. I've seen a few new ones go bad. Stargazer

    Hello, again
    The screen control is located on the flyback transformer. It is an integral part of the flyback. You'd need to replace the whole flyback assembly.
    The screen control will open up if the wiper contact starts arcing or if moisture seeps inside. The wiper just slides along a film of resistive material (usually carbon) and since there is a pretty high voltage involved, it can start arcing and burn out.
    Also on the picture tube drive board there is a small high voltage disc capacitor which may become leaky or shorted which in turn will burn out this control.
    Both the focus and screen controls are made together forming an adjustable voltage divider.
    Depending on which part opens up determines which circuit is affected.
    I hope this helps explain its operation and location.

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 Symptoms include....


  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some pics of convergence problems.

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.

We have a RCA D52W23 rear projection TV. Now the color looks like it is in 3D. A friend has the same problem a few years ago and bought a part on line and fixed it themselves. What is the part and where...


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.

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 Symptoms include....

  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.

Additional information is required for us to assist. Can you better describe what you mean by "poor image"? Are the colors separated? Is the picture out of focus? Are the colors wrong?

My 52 inch RCA projection TV has the picture wide on top and small at the bottom..what can cause this and how can it be fixed??


This sounds like a problem with "convergence" of the TV. The convergence circuitry performs the electronic aiming of the Red, Blue & Green projectors. Typical convergence problems result in distorted images on the screen such as: double or triple images on part or all of the screen, wavy lines, curled edges, excessive red, green or blue color or tint, etc. Sometimes, convergence issues can be corrected in a menu setting of the TV that has to do with "Picture Settings" or "Advanced Settings".

If the colors are out of alignment a great deal or went out "all of a sudden" it will probably not be repairable via the menu adjustment described above - but is certainly worth trying.

If it does not straighten out with the menu adjustment, it will probably require replacement of the convergence integrated circuit(s) chips located in the TV. This was a "big ticket" repair years ago, but can be done sometimes for as little as $40 in parts. Don't let the low price fool you though.. It can easily take several hours (or more) to access, remove & replace the components and reassemble the TV. Soldering skills are a must - and I'm not talking about soldering plumbing pipes here either. These are delicate electronic parts and need a 15 - 30 watt soldering iron and de-soldering braid or "solder ******" and LOTS of patience to perform CORRECTLY. As such, it is "not a DIY project" unless you're willing to risk turning your TV into a large floor model paper weight. If you decide to attempt this repair, you should google your TV brand and model along with the term "convergence". Parts, costs and procedures vary by TV. Unplug the TV for a day or so before starting the work to let capacitors discharge fully - just to be safe. Lastly, if you're going to attempt the repair - don't forget to purchase silicone heat sink compound - it is an absolute *must*!
