Question about RCA R52WH73 Projection Television

1 Answer

My RCA P52937SG projection tv. Picture distorted. I beleive it has to do with the green circuit / projector. Everything needs to be aligned to green. Green projector is on, but, in alignment screen I get no crosshairs to align it. Blue and Red the crosshairs show up. Screen is like convexed, good in middle, outside alignment sguares and color lines do not line up.

This problem is a commom Convergence failure. The circuit is composed of two output IC's or chips. They will both need replaced at a cost of around $350 from most shops. If you're handy with a soldering iron you can give it a try but it is a critical circuit.

My 52" RCA P52937SG screen bows on the top and on


What you are describing can be due to a number of different settings.

Focus on the red and green guns
Sharpness on the red and green guns
Horizontal position and size
Vertical position and size.

Please consult a professional for adjustment on these items as they are all near or connect to parts that have Hazardous Voltage.

What you most likely have is a convergence problem. The convergence circuitry is used to align your colors. What you describe sounds like that circuit has failed. Here’s a link to a decent video that will give you an idea of what is needed to fix it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S6Wa8FvSz-s

Projection screen bowed?


Projection sets have two very common problems.

The first common problem is convergence

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped or bowed
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture
