    Where is the fuse located for the convergince ?

  • BuzzAlmighty Dec 02, 2008

    I do not have the convergence option in my menu. It was there before, I used to select every once in a while. Now its not there but I've never seen the 3 colors off by this much before.

You are haveing form the sounds of it convergence problems. I see this all the time on this set at the shop. FIrst question in customer menu under setup do you have the convergence option if not consult the tips and tricks section under fl231 problem. if you do have this you may have other troubles the convergence is controled by three seprate boards.

Picture looks a little warped.

This could do with the picture tube, or another internal error, or it could do with the source of the content playing, if you are connecting straight from a TV wall jack, then maybe the TV requires a HD component, try playing around with the TV setting and changing it from 16:9 to 4:3 aspect ratio see if that helps. There is a video on youtube I found of somebody taking apart the TV in order to fix it. x
Goodluck :)

RCA R56WH78 3D Color Spectrum

Hello The common FL231 fuse problem that these set has can be identified by asking the question DO you have the convergence option under setup in the customer menu. If you do not then there is a 99 percent chance you have this. I have written detail repair instrucitons on this under my profile in the tips and tricks section of fixya. I use union electronics for parts but just google the part and you can find many distribitors of the fuse. should not cost no more than 5 dolars and if you can solder the repair shouldnt take more than an hour to complete. Be carefull and good luck. This repair is on you can do if you have any trouble let me know.
