Question about RCA P61960 61" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

TV Turning on and off, left side of picture is not lining up, bowed in center

I have a P61960 and the TV will randomly turn on and off. It is almost like there is some kinda of power surge. When it starts turning on and off the picture will bow in the center and the colors on the left side start not lining up and kind of looks like a 3D movie. The color and bow problem didn't start until the unit started turning on and off. Often, when the turning on and off starts, the color and bowing problems will occur and go away each time the TV turns on and off. I went in and unhooked the wire that controls the front buttons, so they no longer work, and I know the buttons are not the issue.

Most likely you had a power surge issue that caused the tubes in your crt projection to malfunction. I would recommend having a service call done to find out the issue

That sounds like a Pincushion problem if you having bowing. It's probably bad caps and diodes on the deflection module. This is not an easy fix. If you know how to read a diode and you visually inspected the caps you might have some chance of fixing it yourself.

Sudden discoloration, ghosting, bowed horizontal lines in top and bottom of picture


The convergence ICs probably have a cracked solder joint on the foil side of the circuit board. Re-flowing the the solder would help. I will always replace the convergence ICs when doing this job. The labor remains the same and you will have to pay a few extra bucks for the parts. To fix this yourself, you will need to be able to identify the two convergence ICs, have a basic knowledge of electronics and be able to use a soldering iron. You will also have to do an alignment through the service menu.
