    RCA D52W20, green outline is slightly bowed on the right side of the screen. Blue and red line perfectly with green on 70% of the screen until it gets to the right lower portion.

You will need a convergence amp board or a convergence power supply board depending on wether its one color out of alignment or all of them. Let me know what color or colors are out of alignment and I can help you out with board selection.

The red in the picture is shadowing the rest of the picture giving it a 3d effect


All projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video or dead set) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both.

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

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. In some cases the TV will also not show any video. 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 projection 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....


  • Screen looks 3D, wavy, or has a shadow or shadows
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some pics of convergence problems.

Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

You probably need to get a Sony TV Convergence Kit. More information can be found using the link below.

Convergence Symptoms:
  • Screen Looks Distorted/3D
  • Colors wont align
  • Screen may look distorted
  • No Audio/Video - makes a chirping sound.
You can see some examples and find a fix here...
