Help with RCA projection TV P46812BL (chasis ptk195AA)


You have probably blown one of the convergence ICs. Effectively the easiest thing to do is replacing the whole convergence board, so that no soldering is involved.

Here you can buy a replacement convergence board, just select your model.

Let me know if you need further help.

Double image


Your set uses the 195 series chassis, which has separate components for each of the 6 convergence channels and a separate power supply for the convergence circuits. If all 3 colors have drastically shifted, especially around the edges, then chances are your convergence power supply has stopped working. This is usually caused by the failure of the STK730-010 switching IC. If one of the colors has dramatically shifted by itself then something has stopped working on the convergence board. Sometimes I see CRT coolant leaking onto the convergence board as the cause. In either case this is something that should be repaired and realigned by someone experienced with RCA projection TV convergence circuits.

You have a convergence problem. Please see a tech about reworking the convergence board or better still, have them install a refurbished board. The refurbished board will usually have a six month warranty! Thanks for asking ,and fear no TV tech, as you are armed to get a straight answer.

I have an hourglass image on the screen and the colors where the screen warps are all separated. I was wondering if that can be fixed or if the tv isn't worth it. Thanks for the help


yes it is fixable and way cheaper than buying a new one all u have to do is change the convergence they are 2 IC's usually located in the video board attached to a aluminum heat sink side by side.

The colors are separated. Images are blurry and


Try adjusting the convergence. If it won't move see below- (or hitting Magic Focus for some Hitachi’s)
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 charge between $200-$400 Be sure to vote/rate me if this helped Thanks!

you will need a convergence amp board or a convergence power supply board depending on wether its one color out of alignment or all of them. Let me know what color or colors are out of alignment and I can help you out with board selection.

If you mean they are separated like a 3-D effect, then you have the typical bad convergence IC problem. There are two IC's mounted on a large metal heatsink, they will have STK392-###, the ### being differant models of TV sets. these are soldered into place and are no usually replaced by the user, unless you have solid state repair experience, knowe how to solder, have a schematic on the set, and know the High voltage safty factors of projection TV serviceing. If you have no experience, please play it safe, and get someone who is trained to service TV sets. Good Luck Please do not forget to rate this thread.
