Problem with colors

Ok one night I was watching a movie on my RCA HD56W66 I turned the tv off the next day I turned the tv back on and all of the colors were messed up.  I tried to change the convergence to see if it would help but when I was trying to change it nothing was happening, all of the colors stayed the same.  The picture is all blurred and you can see every color.  Please Help

Is the convergance listed in the menu? if the convergance is not listed in the menu anymore, and no convergance....there is a specific fix....on the deflection PCB the +40 volt source is missing or much lower voltage. This is, i think diode #DL231 which is coming off the flyback transformer. The diode may be shorted or open and the fusible in line may be open....I have also had bad print & bad connections on the flyback do that also....i have had the as an intemittant type problem as well, but the +40vdc must be there!      good luck! let me know what you find....

Tv turns on then right back off no pic or sound

It is in shutdown mode. You have an "overvoltage" (regulation) problem or their is a short in one of the many components causing it to be in "over current" mode. Could be as simple as a bad solder connection. This will take someone with some knowledge of the circuits and test equipment to diagnose.

RCA CTC203 No Colour in the Video IN or Svideo

It is possible that while programming the remote you got into the menu on your TV and adjusted the color control. Go back into the menu and find the controls for color, contrast, tint and etc. If the color bar is all the way to the left, then adjust it to go to the right until you get enough color. This is just one possible solution. Hope this corrects the problem.
