Sone tv's have fuses on the convergance ic's so if the ic fails the fuse goes also. the fuse or fuses can be near the ic, or can be located also in the power supply. I have seen that most times the fuse does not look like your normal fuse. they call them pico fuses. the look like small like resistors. i have seen them all white, all yellow, & all green. if you find them they are usually marke in amps, so replace with the same amp pico fuse. good luck

Im having colour problems with my phillips 43in hdtv blue and red lines across the screen tried to aligne but didnt help any ideas wat i can do

This sounds like convergence output IC problem. convergence board would have to be removed - remove and replace 2 STK IC's and check the surrounding resistors. Shops usually $200-$400 Be sure to vote/rate me if this helped Thanks!

I need the convergence code or how to get into the menu to converge my rca p52939 colours are not aligned

Hello,On your remote click the menu button and then go to the screen adjustment section. Once there chose convergence, and use the simple cross pattern to try to adjust your settings. If this does not work then you may have a convergence amplifier problem. For that you will have to have the convergence ICs replaced. I would suggest that you get a qualified TV repair man to do this for a fee. There are many instructions on how to do this on-line.I hope this helps,Regards,Shuttle83

Your TV most likely a convergence failure. ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem

  • 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.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

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

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

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


You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses. Its a fairly easy DIY job or you can call in a pro. If you want to do the repair yourself check the site Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, email/phone support, etc.
