Rca d52120 need more green and red color

sounds like the Blue CRT drive has an issue which causes the blue to become dominate thereby limiting the red and Green CRTs from projecting normally. Is your screen full of blue?

The wrighting on the ev is blurry how can this be fixed

Projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both. Repair kits with instructions are also avail from

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

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 pics of convergence problems.

Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

I have a RCA 61" d61w20b, i can turn on the tv and the sound is good but the picture is not right it bows and distorts the picture, it shows the picture in three colors green, red, and blue could it be the...

What you most likely have is a convergence problem. The convergence circuitry is used to align your colors. What you describe sounds like that circuit has failed. Here’s a link to a decent video that will give you an idea of what is needed to fix it:

Magnaovox rear projection tv has too much red in the picture and it is blurry

Sounds like a coolant issue with the CRTs. Look into the lens of the green and blue CRTs and you should see what looks like bacteria if the coolant nees replacement. Usually the green and blue get contaminated which dims them and makes the red become dominate and the picture will get dim and out of focus.

RCA D61W20 61, power on and off, Rodent Urine.

it may just be where the blue and green CRTs were over driven when the red flared. This may go away in a few days on its own .

D61W20 RCA, Red Screen and then shuts down

sounds like the Red CRT (tube) has shorted. You can test by removing the RED crt circuit from the end of the RED tube and making sure it isnt touching anything try powering up the set. If it comes on and doesnt shut down the red tube is the problem and will need to be replaced . expensive part to replace the Red XRT will be over 300 and at least 2-3 hundred to have it installed unless you know someone who can replace it for you.

RCA P46921. Just changed flyback.

First, this assumes nothing else is going on to cause it. Here's what I did. Go to the 'green grid' via the v76 menu and go through the alignment there. Notice that there are red letters, blue letters, and a green grid. While you are in this screen, adjust the red, green, and blue focus watching the individual color's item until they are in focus. If they won't focus here, they won't focus and you have something else wrong (what I do not know). Then, return to normal programming, then select menu on the remote, then screen, then adjust projection tv convergence both horizontal and vertical crosshare. That ought to get it.

HCL4715W Rear projection blurry

The focus controls on this set are in the front behind the bezel. I'm not sure, but, I think on this age of Samsung, the screws to the front bezel are on the back side of the set. After removing the screws from the back, the front bezel snaps off and the door behind the bezel need to be removed. Watch the wires connected to the bezel, they need to be attached in order to turn on the set. The focus controls are on a black control block (there are three of them, one for each color). Adjust each color for sharpest picture. I use words on the screen for alignment. Each CRT board has a screen control (Adjust each slowly until retrace lines appear on the screen and then back off until they disappear). You may turn off the color and make sure that the picture is black and white. If it is not, then, which ever color is dominant, back it off a bit with that screen control. Facing the set, Red is left, Green is middle and Blue is on the right. Use only one hand inside an operating television. Do not touch the board, just the controls. This concludes television alignment 101. Any questions respond to this post and I'll reply.
