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.

Inverters use square wave voltage, which tends to stifle digital circuits. Leaving something stuck, or not working. Sure, the inverter will work for awhile, but then the rigid square wave eventually causes problems.

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.

I you know how to repair electronics its not a hard fix. The worst case would be the vertical output IC but im thinking th its nothing more then a capacitor in the verticle sweep circuit The average cost to repair this should be around 75 to 125 bucks. Good Luck
