You have bad convergence Ics they are mitsubishi part # 267P150010 Generic part is STK 392-570 and they are at locations Ic8c01 and Ic8co2 on the deflection board. If you can solder you can take these out replace them and fix your problem for about 100 dollars. Best of luck

That means there are bad solder connections on the ics it will be back and sooner or later it will not just "pop" back into place. The sooner you fix the problem the better off you are. Hope this helps.

Rca projection tv mod:P52937SG

It seems like a convergence fault. Either the convergece cirlcuit, or the convergence settings have the fault To make it sure, try to adjust convergence adjustment. You have to enter its service mode option to do this. Check this link and pull up older posts. One among them have details about how to adjust convergence for projection television. If no effect can be seen during convergence adjust, make sure that the convergence board have the fault. You have to check further more into.

Rear Projection - Color convergence/bowtie effect


Thanks for using FixYa. From what you have described it seems that you have to replace the convergence IC and also check the power resistor, if values are not exact you have to replace them. These ICs are located behind the black heat sink; you can see once you open the back off the TV. Also, the convergence board should be checked for cracked solder joints and please make sure to check the resistors as if they are shot the ICs might blow again. All this is only recommended if you have electrical expertise and know how to solder/re-solder components, if not then you should get this done by a professional. The typical cost to get this fixed by a pro is around $250-$300. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Oversized picture problem

Several possibilities, if you use a set top box to get your signal like a cable box or satellite receiver they will have settings that effect picture size. It could be a high voltage problem inside the TV causing an effect called blooming, if that is it you can usually change brightness and or contrast and see the picture get smaller and larger. I don't recall that set having any customer settings that could give that symptom.

Television picture does not work when first turned on

It seems that there are capacitors in the power supply which have dried or leaked, It is vurtually impossible to diagnose sight unseen however, the fact that it effected the three colours I envisage that problem to be associated with the supply, also the curving effect makes me look there, it seems that there is a ripple in the AC. I am assuming that it would take around 1.5hrs and cost of caps. This is working on the assumption that the fault is what I have listed without looking at it. Cost may be around the $150-$250 but don't quote me, I can't see the fault so it is an educated guess only...Phil
