Question about RCA P60921 60" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Distorted picture My tv blew a fuse when we had a power surge. I put a new fuse in, and now it has a distorted picture. It has a dip in the center at the top and a curve in the center at the bottom. The convergence is out of align too. I need to buy a new remote too, but I don't know if I need it before calling the repair person.

Re: distorted picture

The T.V. has a problem on the convergence panel Bd. Check each of the resistors near each regulator transistor. You can send the panel to P.T.S. Electronics in Indiana for repair. Call 1-800-844-7871 and they can repair it for you.

Hello, I have been having power problems with my Samsung FPT5084 50" plasma for the past year. I know what the problem is,m just don't know how to fix it. My TV keeps blowing fuses. I bought 10 12A 250V...

I would have maintenance from your building come out or the electric company and put a monitor on the 110v line into your apartment to make sure the ground strap is not coming loose in which your voltage will rise in excess of 150 volts.
As far as I see, your AC line fuse is only a 6 amp. Why are you using a 12 amp? If you have a circuit board ID number of the fuse your replacing, that would be helpful. I know of no Plasma set that uses a 12 amp fuse, not even old heavy current draw sets of yester year. You can e-mail me at

Distorted picture on screen

Projection sets have two very common problems.

The first common problem is convergence

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. This is called convergence.

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,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

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

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Picture looks like 3D without 3D glasses on???

The cost I don't know, but this can be fixed. I'd say shop around a bit. Make sure the repair person is certified for your TV's manufacturer. There are generally 3 lamps in projection T.V.'s, Red, Green, and Blue. They have to be aligned for the TV to project a clear picture. A credible TV repairman should be able to fix it. Depending on if it's new enough to be under warranty they may cover it as well. Really the only reason to get rid of it is if you want to get a new TV anyway. Depends on the cost of having the lamps aligned.

Have a Toshiba MW24F11 combo tv. Near lightning strike through surge suppressor. Will not turn on. 6.3 amp fuse blown; replace, blew again. Next step, or start looking for replacement. Set is 25...

power surges generally damage diodes and capacitors causing the fuse to blow, any reputable tv shop can repair for a fraction of replacing this set.

Try removing the Green CRt PC voard that is on the bottom of the green Picture tube which is the center one. Then replace the fuse and see if your set powers up if it does you need a new gree tube. Just be sure the crt board doesnt touch anything while you try it. then let me know what happened, if you need a tube they arent available new any longer but I have a source for good used picture tubes,

Green semi-circle of lines on Samsung 55" HDTV (projection)

I believe i have the same problem myself. When my TV is on any of the Component Inputs without my DVD player turned on i usually get the normal green screen. But now that is a dip in the green at the top of the screen from the top left to almost the top right and black pushing down on the dip. Almost like a green curtain was sagging at the top and you can see the black behind it. It does this on every input and distorts every picture you see. The distorted picture has all the green slightly off from where the rest of the picture is and where the dip at the top of the screen is there is somtimes purple instead of black.

I know the basics of how the picture gets onto the screen and its my guess that the Green "gun" for lack of a better term and somhow come loose, or been missaligned to a great extent. I would love to find an answer to this problem, and anyones best guess as to how much a repair man will charge, just so i know the ballpark.
