I'd say your convergence needs to be done. There is a user-level service convergence option, which will get your convergence good enough to be watchable. A really tight precision conversion requires a little more.

Also, turn off Scan Velocity Modulation. You probably need to go to the service menu for this.

DO NOT PLAY AROUND IN THE SERVICE MENU.

With your tv off, press mute, then one, then eight, then two, then power on. You should not be in the service menu. Using the channel down buttons (or volume down, I forget which) go down to the "video options" choice. There are four, and I think it's the second one. One of them has the option to set VM level. Select this with volume down, then when you can change it, set it to zero. Now, keep hitting the menu button until you are back to the first screen. Now press the mute button twice. Now turn your tv off and back on. Now switch it out of "dynamic" picture mode (never use it).

To properly calibrate your tv, buy a copy of Digital Video Essentials.

Rca big screen 5-8 years old, power shut off this morning while watching then when I powered it back up now blurry and has a red and green outline around everything onscreen


If you have the original remote to that tv, click on menu, then select set up from the on screen menu, then select convergence. you might see auto convergence as well as manual for blue and red convergence.

If you see Auto, select it, this will line up your tubes.

If no auto convergence, you will have to select each one, and follow the instructions to aline your tubes.

Everything in picture has a red outline tried


Howdy,

It sounds like you are having a problem in the conversion circuit. The outputs IC’s for that circuit have failed and are need of replacement. The average cost is at least $450 on one trip. Call an Authorized Service Dealer for repair and estimate.

The conversion circuit is the circuit that aligns the picture.

Good Luck, Big Irish.

Red imagine around everything on the screen.


The PlayStation has caused a "burn in" on the monitor. Unless your T.V. has a program which reduces this burn, you are either going to have to pray that it disappears, or you may be looking at buying a new T.V. entirely.

Samsung HCM5525W TV red blue outlines on images


The Samsung has bad convergence IC's most likly. This should be repair ONLY by a trained technician as a TV set is not a place to experiment or tinker with because of the extremly high voltage inside. This repair should cost you in the range of 250 to 400 bucks . Good Luck
