Is the convcergence ( Alignment) also off which gives the TV a 3D look around items on the screen? If so replace the STK730-130 on the convergence power supply

my name is steven. Its wierd that i have the exact same tv and it started the same problem on the same day. I can't tell you what is wrong with it unless it is just old like mine. Thanks for posting any solutions you find. I did take the back off it and check for loose parts. Everything is intact. I vacuumed the bulbs and the screen from the inside with a brush attachment and the picture is so much more bright and crisp but the bow is still there.?

Color separates and picture bows on 9 year old RCA big screen.


Hi, This is a convergence problem and you can set it right by changing the STKs. It is a professional job and i have knowledge of people who ruined their tv by spoiling some miniature surface mounted components close by. You may need to look at pico fuses too. I would say seeek professional help if you not comfortable working with electronics. Check out at www.fixurtvs.com,

I have an RCA HD52549. I love this TV, but


Try adjusting the convergence in the customer menu. If you can't adjust the colors then you may need to have convergence amplifiers. A professional can do this. Check around for price.

RCA P52960 Problem (bowed picture)


Normally this is either bad connections on the convergence ICs or defective ICs. If you can solder, you should be able to fix this. First locate the convergence ICs: large black ICs attached to a heat sink that shouldbe marked STKxxx. Try resoldering the pins on these ICs first. If that fails, replace the ICs.

Keep me posted.
