This problem is the "pincussion" setup on the convergence board. It, however can be caused by a failing power supply. If the set takes more than 60 seconds to produce the picture and up to 10 minutes to fully produce a good picture, even with the problem, power supply. Most likely if it does not do the mentioned it is the pin amp on the convergence board.

I have an hourglass image on the screen and the colors where the screen warps are all separated. I was wondering if that can be fixed or if the tv isn't worth it. Thanks for the help

yes it is fixable and way cheaper than buying a new one all u have to do is change the convergence they are 2 IC's usually located in the video board attached to a aluminum heat sink side by side.

RCA model P60812BL 10 years old picture goes fuzzy once on

Hello,

Your convergence amplifiers are begining to malfunction. This is not expensive However I would advise that you get a qualified TV technician to work on the set due to a chance of damaging you TV if you install the amplifiers incorrectly.

I hope this helps

thank you,

My 52 inch RCA HD/TV Does not turn on

Replace CP150 on the deflection board and that should take care of the problem since it starts once in a wnile if it didnt start ever then you would need the 259296 flyback and the CP150 Capacitor.

Have you ever had this problem?

Sorry Ginko, but a convergence problem would have the curves down from the top and up from the bottom. The hourglass shape is a pincushion problem. This can be as simple as a bad capacitor in the pincushion circuit.

Could you please confirm the model number so I can look up the probable part?

Thanks,
Dan
