My daughter hit my tv and since then the screen is bowed and the picture shows three colors side by side. i need to know if this is fixable or not. i tried to do the convergence myself but can not get them to align what else can i do?

Re: screen lookes like colores separating
This is what is known as convergence. a projection tube ussally has three picture tubes.. red green blue. they all have to align. the concave picture indicates complete loss of convergence or convegence power supply. First question on these sets Do you have the convergence option in the customer menu under setup. if you do not this is a indication of the common "FL231 fuse problem" and inexpensive simple repair. I have wrote and artilcle on this under my tips and trick section. If you do have the option then next does autoconvergence work. in you case i would not think it work. under blue and red manual convergence does the crosshairs move. if not then this is indication of convergence power supply board. if they move at all this may indicate a convergence amplifer problem.

This is a very common failure on Projection sets. Its called a convergence problem.
You may have one or more of the following symptoms.
Screen looks 3D Colors don't line up One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu. Screen is bowed or warped. No Audio / No Video - Makes Chirping Sounds You can see some examples and find a fix here...
That repair only repairs the issue of the convergence option missing from the on screen menu. If thats what your problem is then the ITC222A convergence option missing repair kit at the following link should repair the issue. The kit contains the fl231, DL231, CL230 and the CD with detailed instructions. http://www.tvrepairworld.com/
Hi there, this is what we call in the industry convergence board failure. this board regulate the rgb and keeps everything in order so the picture looks nice and clean. when this board starts to malfunction, what you are witnessing is usually the result. I suggestrepairing this convergence board. this will fix the 3-d effect.
Here's all I find regarding bad convergence from the techrepairCD: RCA ~ITC222 D52W20~Convergence bad~~~ITC222~Replace leaky DL032 on deflection board~~~~~~
RCA~D52W20Y ATC221~Convergence goes out/bowed after on for a few minutes~~~ATC221~Problem may be on the deflection board. Was unable to pinpoint where in this case.~~~~~~
RCA~D52W20BYX1 ITC222~Convergence way off after replacing small signal board~EEPROMS were transferred over to new board~~~IK210 was defective..transfer the new EEPROM back over.~Remember on these sets*when replacing the SSB* if there is a small P on corner of screen*hold volume on remote for 8 seconds after it reaches minimum.~~~~~
RCA~D52W20BYX1 ITC222~Can not align blue convergence* bottom really bowed* possibly either color after replacing SSB.(Or no auto convergence.~(Service menu: turn power off for 30 seconds* press vol dn and ch dn* simultaneously for 8 seconds* set turns on with service menu options)~~ITC222~In service menu* select convergence. If sensor calibration was performed when convergence was too far off* it will not alighn.~Get crosshatch with straight lines* perform sensor calibration* then attempt convergence alignment again. Be sure to store settings* then do sensor calibration again.~You must get a green flash of the screen after sensor cal and a check in the box. RED flash indicated convergence settings are too far off~~~~
RCA~D52W20BYX1 ITC222~no convergence correction~~~ITC222~LP650 (259271) DP670 (259246) & RP632 (259564) 4.7 3W on convergence power supply board~~~~~~
This is a convergence oroblem. First question is do you have the convergence option in under setup in the customer main menu?... if you dont you may have the very common fl231 fuse problem; i have wrote a article on this under the tips and tricks section. this is a very simple inexpesive repair. If you do have the "convergence option" then you may have to replace one of three cuircit boards
The issue you are having could be caused by your television needing the convergence adjusted. During production your televison has the three picture tubes that are converged to form a single image on the screen. Over time these can come out of adjustment.
If you go to this link http://download.jazel.net/misc/filecache/b8/b89bca4c8b740315d378e8ed030461c5_1227-517SeriesOwnersGuide.pdf and check pages 57 and 58, it gives you a very detailed guide on adjusting your convergence. I am aware this model number is slightly different than yours, but I own a 47" Mitsubishi and this is the exact procedure we use to do our convergence so I am confident it is fairly universal.
