If the converegence circuit has failed it wont show up till you fix the TV.

This is a common problem on this model. Call in a shop or do it yourself with parts and instructions from www.TvRepairKits.com

Cant find convergence on menu screen


The HD61LPW42 is a RCA DLP which doesnt have convergence. If the convergence is out of alignment you have a three CRT TV such as the D52W19, HD52W59 RCA Check the model number from the rear tag and let me know what the model number is.

Trouble with rca rear projection tv


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 TvRepairKits.com 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.

Convergence problems, can't find any access to adjust via menus.


NO !! You can't adjust that out. You have a convergence failure. You need to take it to a shop. You won't be able to fix it yourself. The more you adjust it the more ANY shop is going to charge you to fix it. Let me know how it turns out.

This is what known as a convergence problem. First question is in your setup menu do you have a convergence option.. if you do then do you have any control in that mode does the crosshars move up and down and side to side... if you dont then you have a convergence power supply issue.. if you do it could be a setup issue. IF you do not have convergence in your setup menu then it possiblely be a special fuse.. and bad electrical connections. so let me know and ill see if we can narrow it down further
