RCA HD52W66 convergence problem

My parents have a hd52w66 RCA TV with convergence problems. RGB is out of alignment while the screen is also concave. I have seen many solutions to this issue, but none seem completely accurate. There is no menu option to auto converge as suggested. This TV uses 4 transistors per color verses the 2 STKs on one board. The board traces seem fine. Is replacing the board going to help or is this a power issue?

RCA HD52W66 Television convergence is screwed up and gone from the set up menu


Projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both. Repair kits with instructions are also avail from www.TvRepairKits.com

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....

  • 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.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some pics of convergence problems.

For more more examples and find a fix using this link on Fixya http://www.fixya.com/support/r2861467-solution_video_looking_whiteish_dull

Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

By admpeek on Jun 25, 2008 When I turn it on the picture is concaved, the color is shifted slightly to one side, and there are 3 skinny lines across the top. I went to convergence menu and clicked it...


You have a blown fuse on the Deflection board FL231 it will be on the righthand side of the flyback Transfomer there are 3 of them in a row they will look like small brown retrangler caps, it will be the one in the middle. I had this problem myself just several months ago, replacing this fuse fixed the problem. That fuse controls the convergance of the 3 CRT's, without it the tv can't converge so you don't get the option in the menu.

Autoconvergence will start and then stop within 3 or so seconds. This is a 52" rear projection. Colors are a little off.

My HD52W67 has concaved picture


This is a convergence problem and can be repaired relatively easily. If you can solder, you can fix this yourself. First try resoldering the pins on the convergence ICs. If that fails to resolve the problem, replace the ICs. These are large black ICs attached to a heat sink and should be marked STKxxx.

Keep us posted.
