Ok let me get started by saying this is What is known as CONVERGENCE Your projection tv has 3 projection tubes Red Green and Blue. They all have to hit the same spot to create different colors they all have to come to a CONVergence as it were. Someone mentioned deguessing this only works with crt type tvs... Ok i see these set very frequently at the shop, I need to first ask you a few questions. FIrst one.. Can you go into customer setup menu. When you do can you see a option called "convergence" Very important if you do not see this option it might be a good thing. there is a common problem with these sets FL231 it is a very small special fuse that blowns due to poor connections.. IF you know how to solder and can get this fuse it will save you hundreds of dollars. Now if you do see this option then sorry the troubleshooting continues,,, next go into this option there should be 3 options autoconvergence red convergence and blue convergence first try auto convergence the screen should go black and start flashing little red blue and green boxes aroung the edge of screen. this takes a few minutes and hopefully it will end in a full green screen, if it ends in red then next try manual red and blue options u get a cross in center and when you up and down left and right it should move the red or blue cross with it.If it does move then it might need a service convergence. if it doesnt then you have trouble with ether what is known as convergence power supply or convergence amp board. and at this point i would suggest a tech. WARNING THIS SET GENERATES DANGEROUS VOLTAGES AND RETAINS THESE EVEN WITH THE SET UNPLUGED. I do not recomend inexperience person to remove the back cover of this set. BOy I did not realize i could get so long winded(lol) just be carefull and good luck and if you need any help just get back with me ill try to be reponsive

    I have this same problem with my RCA tv model # HD52W59. I do have the autoconvergence option but it doesn't work. Setting it manually doesnt work either. I have checked the fuse on the board and it is ok....have also looked to make sure there are no cracks in soldering. Any other ideas would be appreciated.

By the picture that you have supplied with the question you have a rear projection tv. The problem you are describing sounds like you have had the convergence module in your tv fail. Depending on the age and make of the tv, the repair costs ( if out of warranty ) can be prohibitive. The convergence module on rear projection tv's not only is in charge of bringing the 3 different color images together into a watchable picture but also handles the east west correction ( concave / convex aspect to the picture or lack there of ).
