Question about RCA HD52W58 52" TV
We were out of town and when we returned the picture came on with the color changed and the picture seemed to have a radius effect. The figure on the sceen are doubled and it kind of loooks like you are looking at the screen through a glass or a coke bottle. The volume seems to be ok. When you turn the satelite off to where there is a black screen there is three wavy lines. They are blue, green, and red wavy lines at the top of the screen. The bottom left corner where it shows whether it is on satelite or not is in the same colors(blue,green,red).
Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.
This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projeciton sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.
Common Symptoms include....
Here is a quick test....
Using your original remote go-to the settings menu then goto the convergence section.
Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.
You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right. And you should be able to get the grid straight.
If you can't move them in all directions or cant move them far enough your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.
Note: If you TV has as flash focus or magic focus button only try pressing the bPicture seems sunk in and the color distorted with - 69189a5.pngt fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a fix
You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses.
