*** I have to configure Colors with each power on. ***

I have a RCA 46" rear projection TV ( about 1993 model ). Each time I turn on the TV I have to adjust the colors and focus to get the picture to be viewable. Is there something I can do so I will not have to adjust the picture so I can watch the TV. I am able to adjust the picture when I open the back of the TV and use a screw driver and turn the adjusters on the far right side of the TV. I put a mirror in front of the TV so I can see it. There are 6 different things for me to adjust. I turn them until I get the best picture. But when I turn off the TV it seems to RESET and I have to do it all over again. I do not want to have to do this each time I want to wathc the TV. Please advise on what I can do so save the setting. Sam [email protected]

The six controls you appear to be adjusting are the screen and focus controls for each of the three picture tubes. These usually only have to be adjusted as each picture tube ages or when replaced. You may either have a defective "focus block" i.e. the black box you have been adjusting, or the CRT's themselves may be going bad at this age. You will probably be money ahead to just replace the TV with a new HDTV set. At 13 years old, it shouldn't have much life left in it anyhow.

My rca tv 52

Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.

The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded overs.

Blue, green, and red colors all off

I would suggest having a repair person come out to your place to fix this problem. I believe the convergence IC are going or have gone bad. I would estimate a $300 - $400 dollar repair bill.

RCA 46" Rear Projection TV - Picture is Blurry and RED

That sounds like the screen and focus controls you are adjusting. It sounds like you have a bad HV Splitter inside the TV. #205064 or #204809 Depending on your model number. http://www.matelectronics.com/acatalog/Mat_Electronics_Replacement_Parts___TV_134.html sells them for about 20 bucks.
