Projection TVrca 46 proj - 2_bing.gif 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.

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer, Hitachi, Zenith2_bing.gif, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit from the link below.

Common Symptoms include....

  • Screen looks 3D2_bing.gif
  • 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 photos 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 flash2_bing.gif 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 CONVERGENCE 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 www.TvRepairKits.com

    My set also seems to have this convergence problem but in the menu there are no settings for convergence adjustment; just basic picture controls. Does this mean the only way to solve the problem is to replace the diodes? BF

Hi: this is dur to convergence board failure, there a three micro fuses on the deflection board power suppply that need checking, also while checking these fuses check the solder connections around your flyback transformer as this is the most common reason these fuses fail. If all fuses are good then a replacement of the convergence Board is necessary at this point.

Rca p46813bl convergence problem bowed in the


OK., I know this set very well. It almost never has a convergence problem.

With the set unplugged, remove the back cover--there is a small circuit board mounted ABOVE the main boards--it is about 10 inches wide and 4 inches tall---On the far right side of it are several DIODES---two are much larger then the rest--what usually happens is one of the large diodes is shorted--5 dollar part---the board only has a few plugs and 4 screws that hold it in---easy to remove--check all the diodes(the two large ones first)

If either of the large diodes read like a fuse you FOUND YOUR TROUBLE.

LET me know if you need ANY help or Advice--I am here to help people---I have seen several sets identical to yours with the problem you describe.

Regards, SD TECH

Convergence Pattern


Hi, Your problem is in the convergance? Ever done the convergance on a proj tv? If you have, then you can find the convergance board behind the speakers as i recall IF YOU HAVEN'T DON'T START NOW. UNLESS,,, you have the service manual, or the knowledge to, and the test patterns neccassary, to do it. Each color has approx 10 adjustments for vertical deflection, and 10 for Horiz. IF YOU TRY IT and don't have any idea,, you WILL make it worse!!! It takes about 4 hrs to do it right for a qualified tech so ya better think of it as an all day affair! good luck
