RCA 52" Projection HDTV Model# R52WH74YX60

I have had this TV for 3yrs and it worked fine until 3 days ago. All of a sudden the picture is distorted, shadow or ghost effect, double picture, bowed lines at the top and bottom of screen. I tried using my remote to correct the convergence but it doesn't show up anymore under Menu, Setup (it usually shows up in setup under auto tuning). HELP!

Okay if you know anything about tv repair,
your flyback has cracks around the solder joints, you must resolder the joints and replace a fuse next to the flyback

This can be repaired either by replacing the convergence board or by repairing the board by replacing the defective components. Repairing the board should be less expensive and won't require a complete convergence adjustment. If you are comfortable working inside the set where there are potentially dangerous high voltages even when unplugged, then update this and I'll supply additional details and instructions.

Thanks,
Dan

Blurry picture, some color is off


It sound like your tv needs convergence repair. There is a couple of possible causes to this problem on this particular model. One will be a missing voltage due to a loose conection on the fly back transformer, it may cause a fuse to open; it may also be a bad convergence power supply module, or a bad convergence module.
