    I have this same problem. When I turn on the tv, shortly after the projector light powers up the 3 convergence lines show horizontally across the screen for a few seconds, then the television turns off. After a few seconds, the television turns on again, and the cycle repeats.

    I also once had a similar problem I was able to fix. Once I had these three convergence lines curved sharper and more towards the top of the screen. I found a fix on this website by replacing three small fuses near the flyback.

    Since the problem was so similiar this time around, I took apart the back of the television and took a look at the fuses. By removing the covers, I could see the fuses looked fine so I touched up the soldering points.

    This didn't fix the problem this time around, and I'm not sure what to try next.

    My t.v. is doing those red, green, and blue lines. They are curved, and it's like you are watching a 3D movie without the glasses. Does anyone know what this is?

  • mowettac Mar 12, 2009

    i purchased this item in july of 2005 and tonight at 9pm cst the images became distorted. i thought it was the cable station at first and attempted to turn everything off and back on again. now i am trying to figure out what to do, b/c this tv is too "new" to be doing this. there have been no video games or anything played on it. i am looking for my warranty information, but do any of you have any idea what the company's policy on this is? also, since the same problem is happening after an apparent 3 year mark, are they recalling this item or at least replacing it due to an apparent problem on their end?

sounds like the Blue CRT drive has an issue which causes the blue to become dominate thereby limiting the red and Green CRTs from projecting normally. Is your screen full of blue?

RCA 52 in HDTV red, green and blue colors not alligned - concave

That repair only repairs the issue of the convergence option missing from the on screen menu. If thats what your problem is then the ITC222A convergence option missing repair kit at the following link should repair the issue. The kit contains the fl231, DL231, CL230 and the CD with detailed instructions.

sounds like it is most likely the convergence power supply board, if it were just one color It would most likely be the convergence board itself
