SOURCE: TV comes on, various colors are not aligned

This is a convergence output IC problem. convergence board would have to be removed - remove and replace 2 STK IC's and check the surrounding resistors. Shops usually charge between $200-$300

Replace both of the STK 392-110 ICs

SOURCE: tv picture is slightly blurry, looks like the 3

If the flash focus isn't doing anything you have bad convergence IC chips. This is a common problem with rear projection sets. The chips wear out from heat. You need new ones and they need to be replaced in pairs. The parts are not very expensive, the last set I did cost $38 for the pair on a Sony KP-57WS510. The repair requires some very tedious desoldering and soldering in the new ICs. If you have some experience with electronics and soldering it is not very hard. A shop will charge $300 and up for this repair. If you would like more details on this post a comment back here.

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:

Tv works but picture color is off and its kinda dark looking there is no duel image so i know the color tubes are ok but there is a problem it almost looks like someone took a magnet to it

You have two problems, you have a convergence problem, the convergence board needs repair, and the other problem is the coolant needs change in the guns, (CRT's) and you are looking at 500 on repairs, you would be better off getting a new LCD.

Everything in the picture is off. lots of pink and green involved and it droops in the middle at the top so the letters all curve down

This is very common for these types of TVs. Has it recently been moved or bumped? Or possibly exposed to a surge. - READ Warning below.
This is an issue with the color guns being out of alignment. This will require a TV expert to fix. The color guns are controlled by wire field coils wrapped around the CRT or main picture tube. Possibly the glue used to hold them in place may have let go some. I kinda know what to do, and I find it very difficult to do a good job of aligning the guns to produce a clear picture. Take it to a TV repair shop or have them come out to you would be better, because once aligned, it may shift again while being transported home.
WARNING. There are VERY high voltages in back of your set. In the 40 thousand volt range or more. Don't mess with it yourself unless you KNOW what you are doing. Don't guess.

For the money - I'd look at a new flat screen.. !!!!
