Question about RCA P50830BL 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

RCA P50830BL I have had this tv for about 8 years now. recently while watching the tv, the three colors would seperate so everything was red , blue, and green. I found that if I turned the set off and then right back on it would fix itself. Or if I went into the menu and used the alignment feature it would fix itself. Well to make a long story short....it went out the other day and i tried the turn it off and back on trick with no success. I went into the menu and the alignment feature isn't even there anymore. That is pretty much all I can tell you other than i had the high voltage transformer changed out a couple months ago. Can you help? Is there something I can do or do I have to call a tech?

    I have the same problem that the option for alignment is not available but it happened after i replaced the main fuse. Everything works fine now that i have replaced the blown fuse but the alignment option is gone from the menu. I've tried unplugging it, removing and replacing the fuse in hopes that there will be some kind of reset. But no such luck has come as of yet.

Color in tv is very green you cant tell what suppose to be what i was watching cartoons with kids and the animal that suppose to be red was black i tried adjusting color temp and every thing even resetting...


If your using a tuner for your TV channels and you are using component video cables make sure that the red cable is not plugged into the audio socket. red blue and green cables should all be plugged into the "component" input on the tv not audio.

Sitting here watch tv and suddenly the picture went warped and discolored. Picture looks like the colors are seperated. blue green and red.


Your TV has convergence chips that need to be replaced by a tech. These keep tour red green and blue lights in sync with one another in order to give you a sharp color picture. When they fail your colors seperate.

I heard a pop in the TV and then the screen went red. I can still hear it and watch it but everything is red. Is it a bulb that needs replacing? If not, what is it? Can I do it myself or will I have to...


Several failures can cause a red picture but it sounds like if you are connected from the source with component video cables(red,blue,green)you may just have a bad cable,but you may have had a blue and/ or green projection gun failure,which would cause the red gun to over power the other colors(blue/green), if this is the case definently not worth the cost to repair, you have to replace all three guns at the same time costing $500+ to repair, invest that towards a nice new LCD panel TV. Good luck !

The color on the screen is green when I watch movies. How do I fix this problem?


Good day sir, your inquiry about the green lcd screen can be caused by several things. 1. The monitor/tv produces 3 colors, red green and blue, the tv mixes these three colors to produce the picture. a loss of red and blue produces this green screen. so check the cable, specially the red and blue jack of the component inputs, and the red and blue cable. 2. there may be loose contact on the signal cable. try using the video input instead of the component input. 3. the dvd player may have the problem, check the player component out jack. a loose jack port can cause these problem. hope this may help. thanks

I have a 32" sonya tv about 10 years old.... Have no red color any more.. Where can I get this fix and would it just be cheaper to go get a new tv.


tv producess three colours red, blue and green, each of this has a different input on the tube (crt)
each has a seperate path from the IC to the tube neck.
on the tube are three transistors, each one for one colour,these transistor can be tested individualy,
if all this does not work, then take your tv for rejuvanation (opening of gates on the tube in puts)
