    My picture has shrunk horizontally in the middle of my screen. Sometime it comes back to full size but lately it has stayed in the center, the sound works well. The set is a Toshiba TZ50V61, is it worth trying to fix myself or am I better off investing in a new set?

Rca colortrak rolling then blacks out but still have sound then it starts rollon again


Check and replace the electrolytic capacitors at it vertical scan output circuit. Check for any loose solderings at its vertical scan output IC terminals. Check and replace damaged component/s at its horizontal scan output section circuit. Check the LOT (Line Output Transformer) too for damage. Replace the horizontal scan output transistor. Check the input voltage to LOT. If the voltage is absent check the feeder resistor; if any. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.

Need code to enter on remote to engage multipoint convergence adjustments.Need save proceedure after adjustments are made & exit proceedure for RCA Projection TV Model # HD52W59, ITC 222A


Hello,

To get the code to enter on your remote to engage multipoint convergence adjustments, you need to contact the rca customer care for that, you get them your model number and they will get your code for you.

To process and save the adjustment made, follow the steps below;
  1. Look through your manual. Your manual will always give you the most specific directions for your particular model. Look for an "adjusting convergence" or "set manual convergence" section.
  2. Enter the menu on your TV. Use the remote control and bring up the menu.
  3. Choose "Convergence." This may be under "Picture Settings," "Function" or "Advanced Options."
  4. Select a color. You will have red, green and blue to choose from. Do each one, starting with red.
  5. Press "Enter." A crosshair pattern will appear on your screen.
  6. Adjust vertically. If there is a horizontal red line visible, press the up or down arrow keys (or channel up or down) to adjust the convergence until the line is superimposed on the horizontal-center line of the white crosshair.
  7. Adjust horizontally. If there is a vertical red line visible, press left or right (or volume up or down) to adjust horizontally. Do this until the line is superimposed on the vertical line of the white crosshair.
  8. Save settings. It is important to save your settings when you are done, instead of simply exiting the menu.
  9. Repeat these steps for all colors.
Take care

RCA TV has nothing but horizontal line


If you look closely at that line, you can probably see it shift color; this is caused by the video that is now compressed in height. The failed circuit is call a vertical amplifier and there are so many ways to accomplish this I can't give you a part number to look for inside but it should not be an expensive repair; parts and labor should be around $50 to $75 US.
If you have a service shop for standard TVs in your area, call them with the brand and model number and tell them you were told that the vertical amplifier (or section) has failed. They should be able to give you a fairly accurate quote.
If you were still satisfied with brightness and color, it isn't a bad idea to have it done since it is unlikely that ANY new, flat panel set will live even half as long as your RCA.

Screen looks messed up


this is probably a conversion IC that controls the vertical horizontal and color alignment
you will need them replaced as well as a few resistors
if you can't do this yourself then call an electronic repair shop , they will fix it for about $400
