    top bottom and sides all shrunk. do you know where I can get parts? husband is so-so at being handy, Do you think I should have a professional fix it? if so, approximately how much do you think it might run (parts and labor)? Or do you think I would be better off buying a new one, because the repair might be too much...

    Thank you for your time and help!! I really appreciate it and this site!! ( I have a more things that blew... like a vcr, dvd and refrig... so you might see some more post from me)

Could you explain better how the picture is distorted and shrunk? Top and bottom? Left and right side? or all edges? Usually a power surge affects the power supply and causes the unit to not turn on. If you are sure this was a power surge I would look at the voltages in the power supply to be certain they are all present and correct. If they are I would next look at the video IC and Vertical IC for proper waveforms. I think between these three areas you will find the problem. Should be less than a $100 fix. Let me know how this works out for you or if you need more info contact me.

The coaxial cable connection on the back of tv is missing need to know part number


Its a generic part called a F fitting and would require the tuner to be removed to replace.

If the set has a audio/video input you may be able to route signal that way and bypass the fitting---it would require a box with both audio and video outputs .

Projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Below are more details for both items. Also, complete repair kits with instructions and repair support are avail from site such as www.TvRepairKits.com

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

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 pics of convergence problems.

Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

You can fix it yourself for less than 45.00 by getting a simple repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com

Distorted picture on RCA LCD TV


I have the same tv. Had repair man come to my home in late april. Said it is the power convergence board. $225 for parts and labor I was told. Bad thing is part was supposed to arrive mid-may,then mid-june and now mid-july. He say's part is on back order. I'm actually going to contact RCA soon to find out if this is true. This seems to be a common problem with this particular T.V
