Question about RCA P52937 52" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Hitachi Projection Color Lines

The television has a great picture with the exception of 3 wavy lines in the top right corner. They are faint, red, blue and yellow wavy lines, that show on every channel. When I attempt to adjust the convergence, the area on the convergence screen where the lines display are out of whack and can not be adjusted exactly. Can you tell me what the problem may be and what I would do to fix the set.

I have a RCA 52" Rear Projection Television and I have the same problemexcept my three wavy lines are on the left side of the screen and theyare light yellow, green, and blue. I have no idea on how to diagnosethis or fix this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Wavy colored line at upper right corner of set seems like something is pushing from top left and distorting picture from that direction.


Projection TV sets have two very common problems listed below.

Problem #1) 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

Red wavy lines at top of screen.


Rear projection t.v.s work differently than most. They have threw lights that throw the picture onto the screen, instead of having a color tube that is in a traditional television. It would be my suggestion to bring it to a Qaulified T.V. professional to have watever bulb is bad replaced. odds are it will either the blue or the green(hard to remember exactly but i think its a green one lol) and not the red.

The problem is called green geometry.There is nothing wrong w/the green pix tube.It is critical to get the green geometry

accurate because the red and blue convergence overlays on

the green.If you have more than an alignment issue,that will need

repair before adjustments are attempted.

Wavy lines / red ghosting


Sounds like your convergence amps need to be replaced (STKs). I am not sure what the rates are in your area, but typically you're looking at around $200 or so.
