Re: service mode

To enter service mode, push and hold the [Menu] button on the set. While holding, push and release the [Power] button, then the [Vol +] button.
You will now have some information on the screen: "P0 V0"
To actually be able to change these values, you must push [Vol +] on the remote so the information reads V76. Then pushing on the Channel +/- will change the "P" value.
P1 - 3 are error codes. If there is a problem with the set that can be self-diagnosed, the "V" will report the code. These codes are available in the RCA repair manual.
P4 - 7 control the horizontal size, shift, vertical size and shift.
You may also find a summary leaflet for the service tech clipped somewhere inside the chassis. The procedures for getting into the service mode, as well as the service items of interest will be there.
If you're attempting to adjust color or geometry errors, you'll need the Video Essentials DVD, Laser Disc or some other source of test material.

Sounds like an allinment problem with the color projection you can allin yourself via small screws on color tubes in rear. but be careful as tv needs to be on to do it.

Color wheel

as a technician i dont feel the color wheel is a difficult repair. HOWEVER ..color wheel relacement means sometimes depending on model removal of light engine. which means you can get into alignment issues. then once the color wheel is replaced then it too has to be alligned.

1989 RCA color track 2000-model no.p46050T projection tv

Terry, bad news, there are no "factory settings" for those alignment pots, every individual pot has a distinct function, and if you look closely at the board you will see that there are pots for each color, red, green, & blue which correspond to your 3 picture tubes, every tv has to have a tech do whats called a convergence alignment when it is being built at the factory, EVERY tv is different, even if you ordered a brand new board it would need this alignment done once the new board was installed. You`ll have to call a tech for this one, no way of getting around it, hope this answers your question, more questions? feel free to email me back, good luck, BMW Rider
