If this is a 32 inch TV then it is a standard picture tube set. If the colors have suddenly gone out of whack, and the set has not been dropped or had any large magnets near it recently, it means that the degaussing thermistor has come loose from its legs. This is very common in the RCA regular picture tube sets. If you look in the back of the set you will see a large black coil of wire wrapped around the edges of the picture tube, with 2 white wires going down to a jack on the main PC board. Right next to that jack is the degaussing thermistor, which looks like a small silver disc, like a nickle, with 2 legs loosely soldered to its sides. One or both of those legs are probably loose, and if you are very careful you can solder those legs back onto the thermistor. If you do not have experience soldering small parts, allow a qualified tech to handle it for you.

Sitting here watch tv and suddenly the picture went warped and discolored. Picture looks like the colors are seperated. blue green and red.


Your TV has convergence chips that need to be replaced by a tech. These keep tour red green and blue lights in sync with one another in order to give you a sharp color picture. When they fail your colors seperate.

Rca 32 inch hd tv wont turn on


Josh,
Take your unit to a service center where they repair tv in your city.
Ask them to repair it. Because there are no repair manuals they will not repair.
Make sure they use a work order. when you pickup your tv.. make sure you get the work order or a copy.
With that order... call 1-877-297-8391 and get a new tv

Hi my name is Roety,
I can help you with your issue ,
Most likey you need the convergence ICs replaced.
A repairman would charge about $350 to replace them
Voltage checks and a visual would be needed to determine exactly what is bad in your TV

Rca scenium 50 inch dlp. i now have 3 black blotches in the screen. they look like giant finger print smudges. very noticable on light colored screen.


You have a problem in the light engine portion of the set. Somewhere in the optics. It could also be a build up of dust or a foreign substance. Have a repair shop give it a good cleaning inside. You may want to pull the bulb and make sure there is no foggy places inside of it. Thanks
