hi, you`ve lost your convergence ic`s, unless your very proficient at solder work I`d advise you call a tech, will require removing 2 large IC`s and possibly a few small support parts, resistors, chemical fuses etc. Every place is a little different but runs approx. 300.00 at my shop, gl, video-tek

The picture is distorted. It appears as the picture is being drawn to the center of the screen.


This is a convergence problem. This can be either bad solder connections at the convergence ICs or defective ICs. If you can solder, you can fix this yourself. Try resoldering the pins on the convergence ICs. If that fails, replace the ICs. These are large black ICs attached to a heatsink.These should be marked STKxxx.

Keep me posted.

Distorted picture on RCA LCD TV


I have the same tv. Had repair man come to my home in late april. Said it is the power convergence board. $225 for parts and labor I was told. Bad thing is part was supposed to arrive mid-may,then mid-june and now mid-july. He say's part is on back order. I'm actually going to contact RCA soon to find out if this is true. This seems to be a common problem with this particular T.V

Blue streaks across picture


Can you describe in a little more detail what the symptoms are? Are the streaks thin lines or are they large thick swashes of Blue? Is yur video still visible? Sounds like it may be the blue convergence amps or the resistor tied into the amps. is there anyway you can post a picture of your screen distortion?

Check the proximity of magnetic fields. Large Speakers near the TV for example will cause colour distortion.
