RCA D52W23 breakdown in projection focus

I have a RCA D52W23, chassis model ITC222......I was watching tv, everything was fine....then all of the sudden the 3 color projectors seem to have lost their focus to one another, and it was still trying to display my picture, except each color was its own seperate picture, and the picture seemed to "bow" towards the center of the screen from the top and bottom.

When i say lost focus, the best way i can describe it is like in the old "3D" picture books where you needed the red/green glasses to see the picture, but when you look at the picture without the special glasses you can see the image drawn in green, and then next 2 it, the image is drawn in yellow? Same type of look, except for all 3 colors, and the inward box of the picture from top and bottom. started out this way, so i took apart the tv, checked to any type of damaged parts (didnt go as far as individual component testing), but i could find anything that looked wrong, fuses were good, put it back together, tried it again....same problem, but this time after about 15 minutes of messing with the settings (hoping somehow it would fix it)....the TV totally died, when you power it on, the power light comes on for about 5 seconds, then screen never lights off, then the unit shuts itself down.

This seems to be a flyback transformer issue to me, based on what i've read for others, but i'm hoping for some insight before i order a could be the convergance board as well....but if it was, i'd assume the tv would still stay powered on, just no screen.....i learn to the transformer because the symptoms seem like theflyback started to die....and wasnt delivering the proper voltage, thus my weird display, then finally went out for good.

Any insight would be great, thanks!

First check capacitors cp150 2200uf 16v and cp114,cp120 220uf 35v If cp150 is puffed up on top it is bad , then there is a fuse FL231 on right side of flyback transfomer it will be the middle fuse if open you will lose convergence on picture .

Do you know the code to overwrite or adjust my d52w23 model type tv?

Thats the ITC222 rear projection you can change settings and defaults via of the internal service menu. But its not advisable to do so unless you have the information which lets you know how and what to adjust as some settings can prevent the set from powering up or operating normally unless they are restored to the default settings. I suggest getting the manual which explains the proceedures. You can get one at the following link its the ITC222 Convergence and Geometry CD its available by download link.
