These sets sold for anywhere from 990 up to 1400.00 , so i would say it is worth fixing also when you go to menu in menu go to set up then look to see if convergence is on menu if it is not , then you have a open fuse located next to flyback transfomer, fuse FL231 . you can order rebuilt Deflection board for 179.00 plus shipping 50.00 dud fee when old board is returned 129.00 call union electronics
1-800-648-6657 First let me know if convergence is on menu, if it is listed on menu in setup then try this turn tv off , then press and hold vol- and ch - at the same time some times tv will reset convergence automaticly

Projection tv has 3 versions of what is on tv instead of one


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
*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

Rca model d52w23 picture bowed, a red,blue, agreen line running across the top picture looks 3d mainly in red,blue,green


Hi,
It is possible that the CRT is shorting to the convergence Yoke, pretty likely actually considering the new one lasted 15 minutes.
To fix this you must use RTV or silicone and put it all around the suction cups that are on the CRT, this is usually where the voltage develops a leak and can short out various components.
Silicone or RTV those up, then replace the fuse and see if it fires up.
If it fires up and the picture is bowed again (convergence) then you will have to replace the board again :(
The other possibility (very unlikely) is that the CRT centering is so farr off that the convergence chips have to do extra hard work to align it, this usually only happens after a CRT replacement or Yoke replacement.
Let me know, if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projeciton sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....
  • 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.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the settings menu then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right. And you should be able to get the grid straight.

If you can't move them in all directions or cant move them far enough your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

Note: If you TV has as flash focus or magic focus button only try pressing the button. If it fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a fix

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses.
This is a a fairly easy DIY job if you are handy and can follow directions. You can get complete repair kits from TvRepairKits.com or click here. They have put together DIY repair kits that include the OEM parts and step by step photo instructions for each repair. If you are not handy or can't follow directions we would suggest calling a shop.
