Question about RCA HD52W59 HDTV Projection Television

1 Answer

Me again TV is driving me crazy....

I swear the TV is really makeing me mad. First it curved and the colors were missed up. So we replaced the fuse and it worked for a while. Then we lost the sound made sure things were hooked where they needed to be, seem to be doing okay. Then the power started kicking off and on before you knew it, it blew the fuse. Took the air compressor and aired it all out replaced the fuse and it seemed to work, day later it blew again. Only have one fuse left. Any ideas before I shot this piece of ****. This RCA TV is really a piece of **** if you ask me. FYI --- You have really been a lot of help.

Ok let see what we can do. These rca can be trouble. Im a technician and i see these alot. I guess that a good recomendation for these set LOL. First question. I take it you had the FL231 fuse problem... YOu replaced the fuse did you do the most important step. RESOLDER the flyback connections. i beleve that is step 7 in the instruction. this is the main reson this fuse blows. i have run into only one other case ...out of the hundreds of fuses i have replaced where the small signal cuircit board cause it to blow. but like i said very rare. i used to just put that fuse in and not resolder... it would come back to me within a day. LEt me know what happens

You have a problem with convergence and all you may need to do is replace a fuse. Look up convergence for your tv model and hopefully you will get an answer as to where the fuse is located and how to replace it. Very common for RCA tv's

The problem is the convergence circuit.
Mitsubishi used two different types of convergence IC's in this series. The first is a pair of STK-392-570, the second is a single STK393-110. The only way to fix the problem is to replace the appropriate IC'S. In some cases the problem may appear to be intermitent or loose solder connections. Save yourself the anguish and replace the IC'S.
Getting the PowerSupply/ Convergence board
out to do this is tricky and I recommend a professional to do it. Hidden screws on the front of the heat-sink make it difficult to take out and you can break the board easily trying to force it.

HL-P5063W vibrating and won't turn on


i have had this happen to me several times in the field, and if it is what i think it is, you are not going to be happy =(

inside of a DLP type TV, there is a device called a 'color wheel'... it is essentially a disc made up of different colored glass that spins really fast. this disc has 3 or 6 (depending on make/model) pieces of colored glass like pieces of a pie affixed (read: glued) to a hub.

what happens sometimes is that one of the pieces of colored glass flys out of the hub, and causes a massive unbalance in the spinning wheel, which causes the hum/vibration, and since the colored glass is missing, the colors will be all messed up.

if this is what happened, then your television will require a new DLP engine.

You may have a convergence problem. Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos.

  • 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 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 need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick email and they will put one together for you. Their kits includes photo instruction guides, original Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.

RCA R52WH77 convergence missing from menu


THis is very common on these sets. there is a special fuse thats cause this.. kinda hard to get rca part number 259213.. .4 amp. the reason this blows is there is bad solder connections on the flyback. so when you replace this fuse you have to resolder these connections. so if you know how to solder and can find this special fuse. it is a fast and easy repair
