The model listed here does not have a conventional convergence circuit with output chips.

This model is well known for this problem. Usually first thing is to look to see if Convergence still appears in the customer menu--three parts available in a kit cause it to vanish from there.

A protect part, diode and small cap. Other common issues are bad and broken solder connections under the high voltage transformer(the parts mentioned above are right in that area also)

If the convergence option is still present but not helping I would remove that board and look for the bad or broken solder connections under the transformer(see photo of what typical one looks like).

When adjusting the convergence, ended up with a concave screen, then it smoked. Is this a power supply, or worse? Is there any advice that you could give me on this...


Thats usually indicating the ICs have failed. Usually with that model its best to replace the board rather than try replacing the individual components as ther are several 3.9 ohm resistors that will need to be checked and possibly replaced along with both ICs. www.tvcircuitboards.com should have the replacement board for your model if you need one.

My convergence keep going out, I replaced the convergence twice. I have a rca hd52w59 modle


When you say replaced the convergence twice, are you refering to the convergence boards or the FL231 fuse? If its the FL231 fuse unless you replaced the DL231 and CL230 plus reflowed the solder on the flyback it will continue to keep blowing untill the 3 parts are replaced together and the flyback gets resoldered. If you replaced the convergence boards then try resoldering the flyback.

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 www.TvRepairKits.com. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, email/phone support, etc.

HC-P4752W - IC Replacement vs Convergence Module.


The colors weren't lining up correctly on my HC-P4752W which is only about 30 months old. I did a little bit of research and got ahold of the people at http://servicemanuals.vstore.ca/ They recommended replacing the IC's as well as the IC resistors. I purchased the replacement parts from their site and made the repairs myself. I should mention that I didn't have any previous soldering experience. The repair was easy and a complete success. You may find replacement parts elsewhere for slightly cheaper but what you won't find is the prompt and detailed customer service that they provide. They gave me there # and said to call if I had any questions before or during repair. I took advantage of their services and got answers every time I called.
