This is an indication of convergence failure. on these model the first suggestion or more like question is this do you have the convergence option in the customer setup menu? If you dont i suggest you read the fl231 problem in the tips and tricks section of this website. If you do and you still have the bow tie three d effect then the next solution is to replace what is known as convergence power supply. note when you start replaceing the boards that effect convergence it may need adjusting that a technician needs to do

Looks 3d


Sounds like your Convergence needs to be adjusted. Go to your Setup Menu and look for Convergence. Choose that and the TV will automatically run it's Convergence program If that doesn't fix the issue then you may have to get the unit serviced

Rca 7302rd5 56"hdtv tv looks like a 3d moive


Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.
This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....
•Screen looks 3D
•Colors don't line up
•One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
•Screen is bowed or warped.
•TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.

Here are some photos of convergence problems
