Question about RCA P52937 52" Rear Projection Television
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.
