I have an RCA model D52W23 tv and the colors are out of line


Do not use magnet on or near this set---

This set is known for convergence problems where picture looks 3 d etc and this is caused by bad connections under and around the high voltage transformer in many cases.

First thing to do is look in menu to see if "Convergence" option is still there or missing----three small parts available as a kit exist to correct that if the option is missing (all are at same place around the high voltage transformer).

Set would have to be taken apart if you are able to check things there---if not most techs familiar with this set can deal with this in the home.


the connections and parts are all right where the high voltage transformer (called a flyback) is located.

typical flyback:

My tv has a yellow wave at the top and a blue one on the bottom the objects on the screan have yellow and blue shadows. i have tried the hd focus with no help.


Usually means a magnet had been to close to the TV. They will cause color lines. Either from someone (maybe a kid) potting a magnet against it or from having two electronics to close to each other

I have a Sony KDP-57WS550 TV that has a convergence problem. Based on the symptoms, I'm not sure whether to indict the convergence ICs. In the convergence mode, I can move the red (and blue) crosses,...


With your TV in setup Use a small magnet to "move" the non converged Red, Blue, or, Green color lines "crosses" (each CRT will need to be adjusted in turn) by moving the magnet close to the offending Red, Blue or,Green color CRT yoke or, tube while observing the movement of the CRT color line "cross" in a mirror ( try several places near the tube and, several strengths of magnets:) a refrigerator sheet magnet works well (you can cut these with a scissors to make a better fit or, apply less magnetic "pull." by making them smaller (you may need more than one magnet per tube to fix each CRT's convergence) When you have each CRT tube's convergence right, apply some clear silicone adhesive to the magnet and, permanently affix the magnet to the now "fixed" CRT tube exactly where you placed the magnet to obtain the best convergence on the CRT.
(Do not adjust the "Green" CRT unless you must, as it is used as the color line to adjust other lines to)

Magnet came in contact blue green and red color


Every time you turn on a color TV, a degaussing circuit tries to neutralize magnetic fields on the picture tube face that can cause distorted colors. That degaussing circuit isn't strong enough to clear up the field left by direct contact with a magnet. You need an external degaussing ring to clear up the funny colors. You can see what one looks like here. You might be able to find one for sale on eBay or borrow one from someone in the TV service business. Or you can take the TV to a shop where they can degauss it for you for a small charge. Just be aware there's a chance the picture tube may have been damaged if the magnet was very strong and was in contact with the tube for any length of time. A thin metal screen called the shadow mask is behind the tube face, and if that was warped by the magnet then the colors will never line up correctly again. If this has happened, even after degaussing the colors will still be wrong. But you won't know until you try. Good luck, and thanks for using Fixya!

Our tv is magnitized by our surround sound base speaker what can we do.


Hello. Here are the steps:
1.put your hands in the form like you would if you are about rub your hands together for warmth
2.Put the magnet between both hands at the palm areas
3.rub your hands together and turn the magnet so that the north and south ends magnetize the TV simultaneously
4.make sure you know where the north and south ends are located on the magnet
5.Hint - The Constant switching between the north and south polarizations causes the magnet to equalize the magnetized areas on the TV returning it to it's original color!

My tv color is messed up at the top and bottom the thing wont line up its a philips 60pp9202 , wondering whats wrong with it, I tried the multipoint red and blue match up things. The blue is all matched...


My TVs are all old enough that they don't even have the adjustments you've tried. But one thing to look for. CRT televisions are vulnerable to magnets. Do you have any large speakers nearby? Magnets screw up CRT colours.

Picture is black except for colorful horizontal line across tv


It sounds like you need a DEFRAG Done. Have you put any new speakers or magnets near the TV? Has anyone had a magnet toy or things around the TV lately?

Loss of color after lightning storm


In tradition televisions, each color has its own gun, convergence and control circuit. One or more of these are most likely bad. Repairs on standard CRT TVs nowadays are usually cost prohibitive.
