Question about RCA P61927 61" Rear Projection Television

Help! Menu options missing!

So we moved today, and (though this TV has been moved several times before) somehow the projectors were knocked out of alignment. So, I downloaded the manual and it says to go to "Menu" and then "Screen" and then the convergence setting. The only issue is that when I go to the screen menu, the option to adjust convergence is just MISSING. I called the RCA folks and they had no idea why that would be. Their advice was "try unplugging it and plugging it back in." This didn't work. Am I going to have to pay someone to manually go in and adjust them? I can see through the back that the projectors are motorized, so they must be designed to control from the remote/menu. Why would these options be missing? In fact, as I see in the manual there should be several convergence related options under "screen" but they are all missing. Any assistance is greatly appreciated. Thanks, Matt

Re: Help! Menu options missing!

Many of the RCA's have a pico fuse that feeds the convergence board. If these have blown there will be no 24 volt supply to the convergence board.

Projector needs adjustment

If the model number is correct the set may have in the tech menu a way to move centering etc with the original remote.

I can get the information for that if needed but what is the issue? What does the picture look like after the move?

My Sony KP-51HW40 is underscan!

If you have already changed the aspect ratio on your TV, then change it on your cable or Sat box. Your TV appears to be operating normal.

Moved tv. now the convergence is not lining up.

The flybacks solder can crack when moving the TV then when plugging it in usually FL231, DL231 will blow as soon as the power is applied. You can get the repair kit called the ITC222 convergence option missing repair kit from which has the parts and instructions.

The red and blue projectors aren't aligned with the green projector. It is more sever towards the top of the screen. The green projector also has a curve in it at the top of the screen.

this is called convergence.
the set should normally have a function in the menu to adjust/reset this.
it sound like either the mirror in the tv is warped or the green lamp is out of alignment. if the convergence in the menu doent work then its a service job.

Can't turn off PIP on Sony XBR videoscope TV

Hit the set up button on the TV.
You'll see options to change the language. The last option is to put the TV in "Demo Mode."
Put the TV in Demo mode, when the first screen appears, "Welcome to...." the PIP will disappear.
Hit exit before the screen moves to the "Menu." If you miss it, watch the demo once--it will restart--and hit the exit button the next time you see the "Welcome to" message.

I just did this and it worked for me - i hope it works for you.

You need to take the Toshiba remote that came with the machine and go into a menu area that deals with convergence. Here's what the manual says:

This TV used 3 separate TV tubes, red, green, and blue. The R, G, and B images are pojected onto the screen wheree they converge to form a full-color picture. You can see a clear picture only when the three images converge correctly. Corvergence my drift over time, or if yo move the TV. I you can see clear images on your TV screen skip this procedure.

Make this adjustment only after the TV as been on for at least 30 minutes.

Press the TOUCH FOCUS (auto convergence) button on the front of the TV at the bottom.
The TV will enter into the convergence mode and adjust the converge automatically (that's what it says.)


Press MENU, and the press < or > until the PICTURE menu appears.
Then press UP or DOWN to highlight CONVERGENCE.
Press < or > to display the Center Convergence menu

There's a lot more the book says, but, I can say from experience that you just go through the different sub areas of this menu and converge each color separately, and bingo, it's fixed.

Good luck.

Im seeing double on my 36inch Mitsubishi projection!

Do the colors seem "separated" somehow?  Sounds like the projectors might have become misaligned. Has the TV been knocked by pets/children/spouse?

Convergence problem

We need a better description of what you mean by shadowing. However I am assuming: 1. You mean it ''bleeds'' off to the right when you have something with a hard red/blue drive. 2. When you turn the contrast and color down a bit it gets better. unfortunatly I cannot tell you how to fix convergence, but I can think of some other possibilities. In this case the red/blue emmision of the crt is dying off and going into saturation when driven hard. To fix, replace with a new picture tube/crt. In some cases you can get a little more life out of that tube (with a watchable picture) by having the screen, focus, cathode bias, and drives slightly readjusted. It will take someone with experience in doing these adjustments on a weak tube to get it looking as good as possible. Given the construction of the cathodes (guns) in that crt, only a very low level crt reactivate should be tried on it. The hard rejuv most crt testers give is highly likley to completely destroy the cathode on that crt.

Distorted Color and geometry of Picture

I've posted this solution several times but here goes. Try setting up the convergence through the menu by accessing the convergence setup menu. If this fails to work you have a bad digital convergence box and need a tech to replace it. About $60 to $100 fix.
