Question about RCA P56950 56" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

I've got an RCA ctc195 series TV and the lamps appear to be working but the TV images are coming on with blue/red/green around the edges making them blurry - I know it's an old TV but I need it to work another year (single mom, two kids, one just out of college, one just out of high school, and me with no job at the moment - boo hoo) Any and all assistance appreciated !!!

It sounds as if you have a convergence issue. If you go into the menue with the remote control
and highlite the screen selection. this should get you to the convergence selection. if you highlite
the RED selection and use the arrow buttons on the remote, you should be able to move the RED
either vertically or horizonally over top of the green line. Do the same with the BLUE selection.
If they do not move, you probly have a failure with the Convergence power Supply. To my knowlege, that board is no longer available and you would need a professioal Service tech to repair the board.
Hope this helps,

The old projector TV's are using 3 lamps for Red Green Blue....in your case the Green lamp stopped working....either the Green lamp burned or the lamp board is defective.

Remove purple haze around edges


The set needs to be focussed and reconverged. The red and blue images combined make a magenta/purple image. Adding green makes it white. Depending on the type of TV, if it's a CRT projection TV then there's an electronic focus control for each of the three tubes as well as the mechanical adjustment of the optical lenses. Given the description, then I'd have a look at the electronic focus first. A sudden shift in focus suggests that something in that circuit has given out. This would cause the red and blue images to go soft enough to create a halo around objects on screen.

Blue red green lines around people images


this is caused by some kind of electrical interference. this can be caused by cd players,speakers, etc being too close to the tube. after you find the culprit and remove or move, unplug tv for about 10 mins, then plug back in

Did you use the Automatica Convergence to try and straighten it out? If that does not help, you can manually adjust the convergence.

Red green and blue lines


Most projection TVs have an option to refocus. For example, my Sony rear projection TV has a button on the front for focusing the lamps. Try finding this button or option in the menus with your remote. Projection TVs actually use three lamps, one red, one green and one blue. These need to line up exactly in order to form a good picture, and when they come out of focus, you see the edges which sometimes has the effect of a 3D image when you aren't wearing 3D glasses. Hope this helps!
