Rca 52 inch keeps shutting off and picture is curved

Today i turned on the tv and the picture is curved looking and it keeps shutting off.. we took off the back and cleaned all the dust and this did not fix it..Picture quality is still excellent but doesnt look right when its curved.. It almost acts like its surging when it shuts off then comes back off but the menu doesnt show up its just a black screen then goes back to the show and will be normal for awhile then goes back to being curved. This tv is only 3 years old..

Re: rca 52 inch keeps shutting off and picture is curved

The curved picture indicates failing parts in the pin amp section and probably some faulty parts in the scan amplifier sections. The set is being turned off by the uPC because there is a fault indicated, and it is going in to protect mode.

The set will have to be properly serviced.

The best assumption, at this point, is that the power supply board has died. You can buy a replacement unit from the link below and have it professionally installed.

Did you use the Automatica Convergence to try and straighten it out? If that does not help, you can manually adjust the convergence.

If it is truly a 52 inch standard projection set (you have it listed under 32V420T which is not a projection TV) and your 3 colors (red, green and blue) are no longer lining up and are all curved on the sides, then it means that your convergence power supply has stopped working. Post the actual model and chassis number and a better description of the picture here and I will be able to assist you further.
