I hate to tell you but if the colors are not aligning the way they used to is because the set has developed a problem know as a convergence problem,you should be able to align the colors (red,Blue)but if they are not going in is because the covergence IC's are going bad,If you are familiar with electronic service you can do some of the work yourself but sometimes still does require the help of a servicer to do the aligments from the inside,if you are not too familiar be safe and call for assistance.

Your set has what is know as "convergence problem" because of the bowed lines and ghost in different colors,is really not an easy solution,the set should have 3 amplifiers(one for each color)and they need to be replaced with an exact replacement,sometimes just by replacing them the aligment should be close but soemtimes you nned to get into the service menu to do some adjustments,the amps(IC's) are mounted on heat sinks and all 3 have the same part number on its face,they normally read STK--- ---,every set uses different amps,If you are familiar with tv service you have now a place to start working but if you are not too familiar be safe and call for help from a servicer.Let Us know if you need more information.

I had a problem with my TV colors not lining up. One day I turned it on and the green was out of wack. I checked this message board and replaced the STK chips, bad soldering and all led to me just giving up on that and buying a whole new Convergence Board ($185). I just plugged this in and though now my Green lines up okay, my red is out of whack. Is there something I am doing wrong? Can anyone help me? Did i miss a step? Frustrated......Bruce

perfect focus is based on service mode convergence. FActory setting as it were. the set needs to converged in service mode then these values stored then it should work

THis is very common on these sets. there is a special fuse thats cause this.. kinda hard to get rca part number 259213.. .4 amp. the reason this blows is there is bad solder connections on the flyback. so when you replace this fuse you have to resolder these connections. so if you know how to solder and can find this special fuse. it is a fast and easy repair
