    It's a big board with 12 alum tabs sticking up on it and it's located in the back of the TV on the right hand side. This is a HD52W59 and when you go to the Customer Menu we do not have the option of convergence. I will now try to check the fl231 deal. I will let you know what I discover, I really hope you are able to help me with this issue. I will be getting back with you.



    Thanks Rhonda

What did you put in. convergence amp or convergence power. this is a rca hd52w59? i always ask the question in customer menu under setup can you see the option of convergence. if not this is the fl231 fuse problem. consult the article fl231 under tips and tricks section of my profile. the curved picture is an indication complete loss of convergence power. there is a board that does provide convergece power. The convergence on this set is controled by three diffrent boards. power,amp and the small signal board. the small signal board is the most expensive and most complicated to replace ussally a tech has to replace that.

SONY PROJECTION TV MODEL # KP-51WS510.


If the entire screen is curved, and it is not taking the whole screen, then you have a vertical deflection problem.

If the colors are double and do not match, with lines of different colors around pictures , then you have a convergence problem, often caused by a faulty convergence board.

The curving effect can be a side effect of bad convergence, or you may have both problems at once.

Unless you are a TV repairer yourself, better calling technical support. Usually you can ring the number listed on the owner manual.

Hi, have a 50 inch rear projection Mitsubishi. The problem is that the picture is curved and some of the words around the edges are doubled. Its most noticeable when watching sports because the score board...


power transistors in the convergence circuits on this series TV go bad after several years, making the wavy lines around the edge of the screen and 'doubling' of the edges of the text in varied colors which do not converge. Professional repair is required unless you are brave enough to tackle the project yourself and follow some rather simple instructions, buy a few tools from Radio Shack, and save yourself about $500 bucks...which I did on my own 42" Panasonic rear projection set.

Curved picture and double images


I had noticed your question before posting mine, since it appears no one had given you a solution thought i would share the solution given to me. Two different techs told me the same thing it would need a new convergence board. I ordered my board today hopefully have fixed soon as it arrives. I noticed your question has been hear awhile but thought maybe if you still needed some help I would share. It is going to save me $300 doing it myself, but if you are going to try make sure to talk to one of the techs first on live chat. Goodluck
