Question about RCA D52W19 52" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

RCA D52W19 replaced flyback & #150 cap

Hello, I bought the crappy rca , only 3 years old , walmart special...
the power light was coming on blinking 3 times , and the set would shut off.
I found these help websites and started reading .
I decided my problem was the fly back, and a cap.  My cap # 150 was bulged out at the top slightly so I did remove it
I looked over all the rest of the board and found no more bad caps
I bought the flyback and cap , removed the old ones, and today soldered in the new flyback and #150 cap
I hit the power and the tv works !!!
However I had a "fuzzy" picture that was hour glassed shaped
After inspecting the board, I found a ribbon cable that I must have bumped , which had come out ao I shut down the power and I reseated it, and on power up the tv became near perfect
HOWEVER (again lol)  I still have a problem (small one) 
whenever there is words on the screen, they are fuzzy and behind the letters in the word is another letter, in red
Its like the words are written over themselves and the underlying word is in red
I hope I described that ok , i guess what im trying to say is....
I read up , I got the correct parts , I soldered them in.... im this close to my kids having 52" spongebob , and its a little fuzzy , and I dont want to put it back together  until its darn near perfect 
does anyone know what could be the probelem?

Adjust the focus on the red CRT slightly that should take care of the issue. The focus controls are located behind the lower front panel and the secondary access panel. Its a rectangle box about the size of a pack of cigarettes it has 6 dials on it 3 for the focus and 3 for the screens.
