Please check the cables at the back of your TV. Check whether the cables are firmly connected and are not cut. Also try and use HDMI cables which will resolve the blurry picture issue. In case, HDMI cables doesn't resolve the issue then the problem is definitely with the STK ICs (convergence IC). There are two ICs and this set uses the STK 392-110. They are available online for $6 or more.
You can place an order on line on the following link---

STK 392-110

Replacing STK IC is not a difficult task if you have soldering knowledge and have ever opened your TV set. Please see this link to view the procedure of replacing STK ICs on your TV---

    Please see the second link i provided you earlier, it has the pictures from where you can see the stk ic on your tv. You can also see this link for more information--

    STK IC location and replacement

    Only perform the repair if you have electrical and elctronics knowledge and know how to deal with high voltages, as TV holds high amount of charge even if it is unplugged.

The alignment seems to be off on my tv the picture is blurred and there is a rainbow colored swipe at the top of the picture do you know what would cause this

I had the same problem with my RCA D52W23. I change out the convergence board and the 2nd fuse the one near the flyback. You can try the fuse frist. That would be the cheapest way to start out.

My RCA 52 inch projection tv looks 3d. I can't find the setting to fix the screen. The mod number is d52w23

Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.

The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded overs.

HI, this will be the convergence board in this case. the chip set on this particular board is malfunctioning at this time. i recommend replacing the convergence board asap, if possible.

This will correct this issue.
