I have the rca 32v420t and have the same problem as everyone else. I think I found the part inside the tv, but am not sure how to remove it. I have the cap thing off of the tube, and I see the black "tongs" that hold it to the circuit board, but cannot seem to remove it. Also, the other wire that goes to the point (back) of the tube I'm not sure how to replace. I can get a transformer for $20 and if I can remove it...Great. the shop is saying $100 for a tv that now runs $150. Any help would be great. email@example.com

I woke up one morning and the tv was dead, only a dark blue screen. remote works and that's it. i was thinking about doing the rca reset but don't know how to. this tv is only 2 years old when i brought it. I think it's time for a new flat screen with what the techs are asking for to fix it.
You will have a bad HVT and Horz output. repair is about 85.00-150.00 depeding on who repairs it. However, after 25 years of repairing TV, if you ask me, save your money, buy another TV, this unit has tons of costly repair problems, that is not easy to fix.
The problem is most DEFFINATELY the control board behind the user buttons.
You have 3 options to fix this...
1. Replace the new board completely (no garuntee your getting a "new" part).
2. Replace the tack switches (requires soldering and patients [alot of them]).
3. Remove the board and snip the one wire marked "Key". I didn't snip it so much as correctly pulled the wire out of the plug itself. By removing that one wire from the board you disable just the buttons. You still have complete use of the remote. Who the heck walks over to the TV these days anyway!?!?
If it is truly a 52 inch standard projection set (you have it listed under 32V420T which is not a projection TV) and your 3 colors (red, green and blue) are no longer lining up and are all curved on the sides, then it means that your convergence power supply has stopped working. Post the actual model and chassis number and a better description of the picture here and I will be able to assist you further.
the fluid has found its way down to the buttons. Slide the circuit board out and clean the switches with an electronic contact cleaner and toothbrush, it will evaporate quickly but make sure it is dried and give it a try.
