    My RCA P52937SG Rear Projection TV was fine until about a week after we moved it. Then, all of a sudden, the screen was bowed on both the top, bottom, and the sides. What can I do to fix this?

Yes, this is a convergence problem.

If it is going in and out or showing different symptoms from time to time, I am suspecting you have an intermittent problem as well.... Have you done the whacking test? Whack the set with your hand or fist; smack it a good one on the side, top, back, etc., to see if you can restore the picture. If the picture will restore - even if only for a few seconds, then you have a loose connection or a cold solder joint lurking inside somewhere. It may still be the convergence board or somewhere else that is effecting the color resolution lines; or you could have two problems: A) convergence board failure and B) intermittent condition from a cold solder joint either in the convergence board or elsewhere.

If you replace the convergence board be prepared to shell out some serious money. Usuall cost is around $150 to $400 depending on the unit and the labor and the other parts that may need replacing.

I, personally, don't like RCA brands because I believe they are not too reliable. So, if you repair it there is a high satistical probability that something else will go down soon thereafter. RCA in particular are prone to MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) that catch up with it soon.

If you call a repair shop that is well trained in RCA big screens and describe the problem I think they can give you an easy estimation of what will be needed and how much it will cost.

goodluck,

My 52" RCA P52937SG screen bows on the top and on


What you are describing can be due to a number of different settings.

Focus on the red and green guns
Sharpness on the red and green guns
Horizontal position and size
Vertical position and size.

Please consult a professional for adjustment on these items as they are all near or connect to parts that have Hazardous Voltage.

Blurred picture and colors. warped picture size


This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....


  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some images of convergence problems.

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
