RCA P52921 Color/Alignment Grid

Hey guys, I have an RCA P52921 that I've had for about 6 years now. It runs great. I had it serviced many moons ago, and the tech pressed a bunch of codes on my remote to bring out a graph paper like grid on the screen. He was basically fine tuning the jets, and said it should be done every time you move. Well, I've moved, and was looking to see if anyone knew the remote code to access this area. It is definitely not the red/blue/green convergence that you see under the screen menu, as that only provides one set of crosshairs. What the tech did turned the entire screen into a grid. Any suggestions are appreciated.

What your looking for is called the service menu. This is not an adjustment you should attempt unless you first read the service manual as the wrong button pressed while in this menu will cause permanent damage and an expensive repair. My best suggestion is for you to call in an authorized RCA repair person to do this for you, or purchase a service manual before you attempt this alignment procedure. Good Luck

The problem I am having is with the convergence of the tv. I use the television for cable, and for video gaming. The cable box works fine, but the playstation is where I run into problems. Games supported...

RCA Tvs have to be adjusted each independently for each format such as 480 and 1080. You can get the ITC222 series convergence and alignment CD from which will explain exactly how to do it

I have a problem they told us we have aconverjection problem bow tie effect color distortion how can we get the part to fix it

This can be due to bad solder connections, old/bad capacitors, defective convergence amplifiers, or other bad component. If you are not comfortable with electronics soldering and high voltage, I recommend a service shop. 350 to 450 bucks average repair. This is not a do it yourself for the average person.

50" RCA DLP color wheel replacement procedure

Mine started to howl last year, I sprayed out the motor using carb cleaner / lubricant. Its been running fine for over a year since.

My guess is, the bushing gets plugged with dust particals. If you catch it as soon as it starts to squeek, the carb cleaner trick may work for you too.

You will need to connect your antenna and do an auto search. When the search is over you might have to choose the broadcast option over the cable selection. That might bring in the picture.
