Question about RCA HD52W59 HDTV Projection Television

1 Answer

Convergence This is the second time I'm posting this problem. I have an arcing problem at the top and bottom , the center seems fine. Auto convergence does not fix the problem. Manual convergence allows me to "converge" the middle but not the top and bottom. Lots of red and green shadows. We have been dealing with this for months trying to find a happy medium where the picture is okay. NOW we move the t.v. to a new room and suddenly the auto convergence works...perfect picture. BUT it only lasts for a little while before having to auto converge again. What's up? I have no knowledge of t.v.'s and no interest in tearing it apart. Just want to know if it's worth fixing?! Thanks for any insight provided.

You need to have the conversion chips replaced , this is a pretty common repair and i would say it is definately worth the fix, some repair shops will come and fix it within a half hour to an hour depending on the difficulty in taking out the old part and or putting in the new

Pincusion/Convergence Problem


You can find some presets on the display section of the motherboard. You try adjust to fine tune the picture.

Keep a mirror in front of the TV and try adjust the presets slowly with the help of a properly insulated screw driver.

Caution TV venerates very high voltages.

You will need to replace your two convergence I.C.s.They are two large IC mounted on a large aluminum heat sink.Replace both,look for any burned resistors near them,replace those if needed,and readjust your convergence. Good Luck

Pt-47wx49e convergence problem


I just replaced the 2 convergance chips, but it did not seem to fix the problem. I then tested all the resistors that feed the convergence chips anf there was a 2.2 ohm fusable blown. IT was R7050 on mine. That seemed to fix it so that I could adjust all the colors through the convergence 2 screen. There seems to be a slight bow near the bottom when you look at the c2 screen, but not noticable when you are watching a picture. Since I got this broken, I am not sure how perfect it should be.

If anyone can send me the service manual, I would appretiate it. Thanks.
