Let see if i agree with the tech. first question what does the picture look like. Second in customer menu under setup do you have the "convergernce " option in the menu if not it might be a simple inexpensive repair known as fl231 fuse. if you have the option try autoconverging see how far it gets. does the picture bow in from the top and bottom. there are three possible cuircit boards that effect convergence. And it takes a technician sometimes to adjust... let me know and will continue to troubleshoot this down

RCA, CRT Projection TV, ITC222 chassis Faults - models D52W.., D40W.., D56W.., D61W..
· Symptom: No Convergence, Picture is bowed and distorted, colors don’t align.
The Fuse for the convergence power supply has blown
You'll also notice that the convergence settings have disappeared from the on screen menu. The fuse likely blew because of a fault on the convergence board. If you've never done soldering or dismantled a TV before this is probably not the best place to start. The back cover needs to be removed and the fuse (see picture) identified, the deflection/power supply board needs to be unplugged (label or mark all connectors beforehand) and flipped over and the fuse checked/replaced. You need a soldering iron and solder ****** or solder wick and a multi-meter to check the fuse. If you want to tackle it yourself see attached image for reference or get a quote from a repair shop (approx $200-$300 Total) the convergence board may also need repair.



  • Symptom: Dead Set - TV Tries to Start or intermittent dead.

The set could be in shut down mode due to a fault detected in the power supply, vertical or horizontal deflection circuits.
The common problems with this chassis that will cause a dead set or intermittent dead set symptom are, bad power supply capacitors, bad flyback, bad HV cap in horizontal output circuit and cold solders (on opposite side of board) especially under the flyback area. To gain access to replace any of these parts the back cover needs to be removed and the deflection/power supply board needs to be unplugged (label or mark all connectors beforehand) and flipped over.
These are only the most common problems and it could be any number of other faults.
If you have electronic (TV) repair experience check the items mentioned (see picture), otherwise it's best to seek a qualified RCA tech for an estimate/service call.

· Symptom: Erratic operation of set – turns off by self, the volume or channel changes by self or on screen menu appears intermittently.

Switches on the front panel assembly (FPA) problem.
What happens with this model is the FPA switches (one or more) start to conduct just as if someone was pressing the buttons. This in effect locks up the system control or causes it to initiate erratic commands.
The way to determine if the FPA is bad is to remove it by unplugging from set. This requires front panel disassembly.
Note: The remote will still work with the FPA removed so the set can be tested.

Hope this helped, johnnydiode, Fixya.

Picture not in focus


Devices: All projection TV's (HD or analog), especially Samsung

If its a Samsung HCN653W (or similar model), the first thing to try is the menu option named "Magic Focus", which tunes the set's focus.

Otherwise, it sounds like a job for a convergence. Perform a convergence procedure on your TV, and if the problem recurs within a few days/weeks, then your TV's 'convergence amplifier' board (aka "convergence amp board") is starting to fail.
This board may fail completely, in which case, your convergence procedure will fail to improve the picture.
A "convergence procedure" can be performed entirely by just using the appropriate setup menu option and your remote control.
This board may partially fail, in which case your convergence procedure will properly converge the Red, Blue, Green colors on just part of the screen, whereas a properly functioning convergence amp board will allow complete convergence of the colors across the entire screen.
Your TV's convergence procedure instructions will be found in your TV's Owners Manual.
At least one Projection TV manufacturer recommends that the consumer perform a convergence procedure every 30 days, but most TV owners find that excessive, and might only do one when (a) there's an evident color convergence problem in any part of the picture, or (b) once every 3-6 months.

how-to instructions: www.ehow.com/how_2034880_perform-convergence--tv.html


cost to you: $zero
.

If the convergence amp board is bad, cost for a service call would be $300 (USD) plus $100 for a new board plus 50% markup on parts = about $450 (USD)
Cost to order a new board online: about $100 (USD) + shipping + sales tax.
Alternatively, if you can solder/desolder STK's (Power Amplifier Integrated Circuits), one can repair a convergence amp board for as little as $30 (USD) or so.

My RCA D52W26 projection Tv is blurry. Digital board replacement


You cannot replace it yourself sir because there are a lot of adjustments(electronically not mechanical) and you need an equipment to transfer the data from the old EEPROM to the new one. If the convergence is fine then the fuse should be ok..Picture is blurry??? 1. could be a dusty CRT lens, you can clean those 3 lenses by taking off the front speaker grill then there's a small hole that you can see the lenses... or the mirror needs to be cleaned also. 2. maybe it needs a convergence alignment, pls check your owner's manual if available. thanks:)

HD 1080 Series (WD-55809) - Color convergence issue


I don't know of illustrated instructions but I can provide you with the service manual for your TV. It does have illustrations of disassembly and components as well as schematics. Your set very likely needs new convergence IC chips. This is a common problem with all projection TVs. The repair is not expensive ($60-75 in parts)  but does involve unsoldering and removing the old chips and soldering in new ones. Some times there are some fuses that need to be replaced as well. If you want the manual provide me with an email address.
