Convergence problem with old rca 46 in rear projection TV

When test pattern is on I can allign the horizontal and vertical lines towards the center but at the ends they are off. The amount they are off is the same right and left as it is up and down. For 12-15 inches it is on the line but the horiz. line at the left is up an inch and down an inch on the right. Same with the vert.

You will need to have a shop re converge it or order a new convergence board.

How to set convergence on Projection TV ' s


I have given an general explanation on most projection TV ' s

  1. Enter the menu on your TV. Use the remote control and bring up the menu.
  2. Choose "Convergence." This may be under "Picture Settings," "Function" or "Advanced Options."
  3. Select a color. You will have red, green and blue to choose from. Do each one, starting with red.
  4. Press "Enter." A crosshair pattern will appear on your screen.
  5. Adjust vertically. If there is a horizontal red line visible, press the up or down arrow keys (or channel up or down) to adjust the convergence until the line is superimposed on the horizontal-center line of the white crosshair.
  6. Adjust horizontally. If there is a vertical red line visible, press left or right (or volume up or down) to adjust horizontally. Do this until the line is superimposed on the vertical line of the white crosshair.
  7. Save settings. It is important to save your settings when you are done, instead of simply exiting the menu.
  8. Repeat these steps for all colors.

hi, sounds like a convergence issue. try this...
  • Look through your manual. Your manual will always give you the most specific directions for your particular model. Look for an "adjusting convergence" or "set manual convergence" section.

  • Enter the menu on your TV. Use the remote control and bring up the menu.
  • Choose "Convergence." This may be under "Picture Settings," "Function" or "Advanced Options."
  • Select a color. You will have red, green and blue to choose from. Do each one, starting with red.
  • Press "Enter." A crosshair pattern will appear on your screen.
  • Adjust vertically. If there is a horizontal red line visible, press the up or down arrow keys (or channel up or down) to adjust the convergence until the line is superimposed on the horizontal-center line of the white crosshair.
  • Adjust horizontally. If there is a vertical red line visible, press left or right (or volume up or down) to adjust horizontally. Do this until the line is superimposed on the vertical line of the white crosshair.

    I have an rca model hd52w67 tv and there is a problem with the picture. the picture has a red and green picture that don't allign by about an inch. I think it is in the picture guns but i cant find a...


    Do not align the guns! they are located facing up toward the mirror; they are picture tubes! covered with big glass lenses! heavy!
    instead look for a red/green/blue adjustment knob on the set's front; the buttons should say: convergence or, crosshatch push the crosshatch button: once you have three vertical lines crossing three horizontal lines; just merge them using the other R/G/B knobs untill you have one white vertical line and, one horizontal line crossing in the center of the screen.
    (you may have to find the controls on the remote using "setup")
