Question about RCA HD50LPW175 50" HDTV

1 Answer

My RCA 54 in projection tv shows a blurred picture

Hi, my set just suddenly began showing all of the pictures with halo's or shadows. blurred? Letters appear with green, red, and blue shadows. It looks like the color things are misaligned. I have had this set for about 8 years now. Prior to this, I had a beautiful, crisp picture. If it's a simple fix, I can do it. Otherwise, it's $120 for pick up and delivery plus the cost of the repair and supplies. " that is not happening right now. " I see too many $$$$$$$$$$$$$$. I have another problem too. I have a 37in Sylvania flat screen. It will not come on. I've unplugged for hours and replugged. It has not reset itself. Both of these problems occured on Monday. So, I have no TV now. I really think my kids did something. Anyway, thanks in advance for any and all suggestions.

Picture show blurred and 3 lines across the screen color of red, blue and green


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 over.

On left half of the screen [ KP51WS510 ], a redish shadow showing


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms
  • Screen Looks 3-D
  • Colors wont align
  • Screen may look distorted or warped
  • No Audio/Video - makes a chirping sound.
Problem #2

Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Red picture


That could be just cold solder joints on your convergence circuit board. I would call a svc co. to have them evaluate it. It's not a major repair.

Double words and blurred picture,


Is the picture bowed in too. first consult "the fl231 problem" article under the tip and tricks section under my profile. THis MAY be the problem. Otherwise you have a convergence issue. convergence is controled by three cuicit boards in this set. Setting the convergence on this set is tricky. try autoconvergence see how far it gets. let me know and i help you trouble shoot further

Your green gun in our tv is misagligned/out of focus. Your tv uses red, green and blue guns that layer in different shades and mix to create the different colors. Your green is a little off so the colors aren't mixing right which explains the green haze and the shadows. A tv repair man can fix this problem pretty easily and it isnt expenisve.
