Re: My Rca tv is in good shap. The only problem with it...
You have bad convergence Ics in this televison set. If you are good with a soldering gun you can do this repair yourself if not you are looking at about 350-400 for a tech to replace these. You will not get the colors aligned untill these are replaced.

In the tv menu settings there should be a convergence menu or alignment menu...you need to go here to re-align the red and the blue guns to display the proper picture...most projection tv's have a setup screen for aligning the colors..you want to line up the red and the blue to get as close to white as you can
my tv also had wavy lines when running thru the cable jack or your standard RCA jacks. i used a S Video cable to hook up my cable and dvd player... with no lines. they are about ten bucks at walmart one of the componets on the signal board.. my dvi also works without any lines. just for the record ihave been fixing tv's in my garage now for about a year all these experts say they cant fix that with this model tv i'll try picking up a parts tv and changing what i think has gone bad inside this tv and let everyone know.. but i have told you a way to get around it and get back to watcing your tv without any of those annoying lines
The RCA model is a 3 CRT projection TV. Most probably you need a new RED CRT, or there is a problem with the R(ed) channel (the picture is made up of 3 component colors: Red, Green and Blue). No way of telling without testing of the projector. Sorry!
this indications that you have a problem with convergence. first try to go into customer menu...setup....convergence. and see if the convergence will adjust.. if it wont then you have a problem with the convergence cuircit boards.
I would contact RCA if the repair center dosent know how to troubleshoot this set. But I bet its an eeprom or ground issue. Contact RCA here at 580-634-0151 or At https://www.rca.com/secure/service/contactrca/1,,,00.html Good Luck
