My first suggestion on this set is to cheack to make sure you have not loosen the cable connections between the boards there is a flat ribbion cabel that runs from the green main board to the front crt boards. when tiltling the cuircit board this can come loose.

Convergence Failure Test


CONVERGENCE PROBLEMS

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 sets and a fairly simple DIY fix.

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 - TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some pics of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the settings menu then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions or cant move them far enough your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

Note: If you TV has as focus or magic focus button only try pressing the button. If it fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a solution

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses.

This is a a fairly easy DIY job if you know what you are doing. If you have never done this before we would advise calling a shop or if you want to do it yourself get a complete kit with instructions and support from TvRepairKits.com

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

Having trouble adjusting lenses and color to correct settings.


Are you adjusting the TV using the menu or did you open the set up and turn the knobs. I hope you did not adjust the knobs without some instruction.


It may be a convergence failure. ( common problem ) or cloudy CRT fluid.

Tv model r52wm24


You most likely need a new convergence power supply board if fl231 keeps blowing thats the most likely cause, also check for shorthed capacitor cp231. If you need a link to get a replacement convergence power supply board, let me know I know where you can get them.

Fl231


Some of those models are a different version of the PTK195 chassis some dont have the fuse. in that case you will need the convergence power supply board thats what likely blew the 5 Amp fuse. let me know if you need help locating one of those power supply boards.

Location of convergence IC's in R52WM24


i have the same problem where is the fusible link i replace 2 boards and a connector (t.v. repair man can and diagnoised the problem but did not fix it)

Feb 02, 2008 | RCA R52WM24 52" HDTV Projection Television

Double vision and no convergence


I have found that fusible link FL231 is the main cause of this problem. It's located by the high voltage transformer and looks like a square coil.
Check it with an ohm meter and if it checks bad, then, replace it and you should not have to realign the convergence.
Any questions or comments, respond to this post and I will reply.
