This is a common problem on older RCA projection tvs. There is a small power supply that powers the convergence circuit and that is what usually fails causing this issue. The model # will help you get the correct part. If you open the back of the set, it is the power board mounted above the convergence board (above the board with row after row of heatsinks). There will be a red and black wire that drops down to the convergence amp.

I have an older model rca rear projection tv. The problem with the tv is that the picture bends into curve after about 5 minutes after it has been turned on. Please help.


Check the convergence IC's for cold solders, check for leaking capacitors in the area. Check the voltage regulator with a Variac.

Usually these sets just need the 2 big convergence IC's replaced with new ones. Clean all 3 picture tube lenses, mirror and screen. Get the original RCA remote that came with the set and MANUALLY align the convergence.

Rarely the bow on the bottom of the screen is not repairable.
