Question about Philips Projection Televisions

Can't watch footbal

On my television the convergence's(RED,BLUE,YELLOW), are all over the place and can not be allinged.
This came to be the other day just from shutting off the unit and turning it back on...
The colors kind of have a "wave" across the screen and distort the picture
also I tried to disconnect the cable from the dvr box and found that the picture is now "split"

Can you help?????

Words have shadows and yellow is also blue ex football game yardage lines are yellow and then there is a blue line words are not sharp

Not familiar with this particular model but it should have a convergence menu. If so, try using the convergence menu (which is basically a cross pattern (possibly multiple ones) that you use as a reference to align your colors and make the cross pattern white. When you go to this menu and see the cross patterns, if you see the shadowing of the colors, you will know what I'm talking about. If this adjustment(s) don't work, you may have a problem in your convergence board circuitry. Wish I could be of more help but try the menu.....I've fixed 2 or 3 sets like this now. Good luck!

Projection is messing up. Too much red and blue color.

A CRT projector requires Convergence and Color balance adjustments from time to time. These settings can drift. What you are seeing is a lack of Green color intensity. Do you see some pink in the 'whites'?
The Green CRT surface also burns off faster than the Red and Blue leaving behind the same appearance. As long as your Green CRT is not too burned by gaming or watching Golf and football, a local tv tech will be able to dial it in for you.

3D TV Blues, Greens, Red and a little yellow. RCA Modle # R52WH74

This is called convergence board failure. try to re calibrate the convergence. if the re calibration fails, this means your convergence board will need to be replaced or, rebuilt.
