Re: no power with remote or manual power switch

Replace the Sanyo I.C. Chip on the convergence power supply board. Cost you about $5.00. You are getting stiffed for $600. It is not necessary to replace the whole board. Fact is they just repair/recycle the boards anyway. It's a racket. Any good TV Technician should do it for $100 and still make a killing. You can buy the part here.

Re: no power with remote or manual power switch

Your convergence module is probably bad. It is a plug in module, so labor would be lower if the convergence settings are still good. The bill would be about $300.00 If not, the labor for convergence would add to the bill. If the whole job needed full convergence the cost would be about $500 to $600. Hope this helps, Lee

Help with RCA projection TV P46812BL (chasis ptk195AA)

You have probably blown one of the convergence ICs. Effectively the easiest thing to do is replacing the whole convergence board, so that no soldering is involved.

Here you can buy a replacement convergence board, just select your model.

Let me know if you need further help.

Our TV picture is bowed inward and lettering is 3D. How do we fix this problem?

Go to Menu then to setup if you do not see Convergence in the menu then you have a blowed Fuse FL231 it will be on right hand side of FBT flyback Transfomer there is 3 in a roll it will be the Middle one they are small brown rectrangler Looking caps but are Fuses Located on the Deflection board Bottom Left hand Board.

fl231 is the convergence fuse, and is soldered to the board in proximity of the convergence ICS, on RCA rear projection TVs.

fl231 has blown, TV usually does not turn on at al, if you get bowed picture, that means that the convergence ICs must be replaced.

The fuse is on the same board where you find convergence ICs, if the fuse had blown, or the pico fuses at the base of the STK convergence ics had blown, the STKs must be replaced.
There is need of purchasing the service manual to do the job.

The repair shuld be done by a technician.

This is the convergence IC, model may vary:

Pt5598 rplaced convergence board no luck.

If the picture is still bowed, the power supply fuses are open.
Check the power supply on the red connector for + and - 20 volts.

The fuses are on the main board,are on the deflection module in the middle, tward the front of the TV. They should look like green (or brown) resistors. An ohmmeter check will show which ones are bad.
They should be 3.5 amps. Replace with 4 ohm GMA fuses with pigtails if you can't find picofuses. I also had a set that would fry the 1 ohm resistor on the 20 v supply. This was near the fuses.
I replaced the whole module to fix that.

I hope this helps. Lee,

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 projeciton 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 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. And you should be able to get the grid straight.

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 flash 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 fix


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 are handy and can follow directions. You can get complete repair kits from or click here. They have put together DIY repair kits that include the OEM parts and step by step photo instructions for each repair. If you are not handy or can't follow directions we would suggest calling a shop.
