RCA52WH73 color issue

I have a month old, (replaced by RCA for bad tube in original RCA52WH73), RCA52WH73. It appears that the red tube has gone out but I don't know. Everything has a green tint to it and I cannot fix it by adjusting the color. I'm wondering if I there is a way that I can check and see if it is a tube or maybe a fuse somewhere. The set has a convergance option which I have done twice since I noticed the green, to no avail.

Time to contact RCA again. Either you have been unlucky enough to have a second tube fail or you have had a color driver ic fail. Either way time to contact RCA for another replacement.

Green picture only


The projection TV has 3 guns RED GREEN BLUE. In your case the red and the blue guns are gone. So you are getting the green color screen. You got to replace the picture tube.

17 yr. old 35" RCA loses color intermittently. Picture & sound ok


Three guns Red Blue and Green in the picture tube of an old CRT set. If one of the guns goes out it effects that color. Sounds like one of the guns inside of the tube is going out, To costly to replace for such an old antilog set that will have to have a convertor box next month anyway.

My 45 inch rear projection mitsubishi has perfect blue and green tubes. The red one, however, is all wavy now as if the convergence is severely off. I am assuming that the red tube needs to be replaced and...


The red color has gone crazy on you because your convergence IC's have gone bad.<p>
These IC's operate at a very high temp, and usually only last 4-5 years.  <p> If you remove the back of the set, you will want to look for the BIGGEST heatsink in there, on that heatsink, you will see 2 lage IC's , probably STK392-110, or STK392-120's or something close...regardless - you can go on ebay to order the new ones, but MAKE SURE they are Genuine SANYO IC's and not counterfiet cheapies. the cheap ones may only last 2 months..<p>
You will also need some "Heat transfer paste" - you can pick this up at radio shack. <p> Once you remove the old IC's, test all the large resistors near them.. pull one side of the resistor out of the board so you can check it out of circuit. they will usually have the value in Ohms, printed directly on the resistor, but you may have to use the resistor color code to find out what value they are....However, usually if there is any damage, the resistor will look like it has been HOT or fried. replace the IC's and any bad resistors, and you should be good to go.<p>
If after replacing the IC's and any defective resistors, the convergence is still bad, make sure to use a multimeter to check ALL fuses on the boards, --- sometimes when the IC's go, they will take out a fuse to the convergence power supply. If you find any bad fuses, replace them accordingly! <p> Hope that helps!

Rca 62" PROJECTION FLATSCREEN - COLOR PROBLEM/FLICKERING SCREEN


Sounds like the red picture tube could be shorting internally which would cause the "all red" condition. In which case you'd have to replace the red tube. Are there horizontal (slightly slanted) lines through the picture as well when this is happening and a very very bright screen? If so it's most likely the tube.

Toshiba colours gone wrong


Yes it is repairable. One of two things is wrong. The color wheel is going bad or the DMD board is going bad. These are the most common repairs needed for a Toshiba. I hope this will help.

Screen Green Tint


Turn down your color and see if the screen has a normal black & white screen. If it doesn't then the CRT is bad (picture tube). If it is black & White then you have a either lost your red or blue.That problem will be in your video driver circuit of which a service center can handle.
