One more question , could or can you access the convergence menu ?
the fuse will be next to the flyback transformer ( high voltage ) and ill look tan in color( 3 of them )
also the flyback pins have to be resoldered also

    if you cannot get to the auto convergence in the menu , then for sure that fuse is the problem and the resoldering on the flyback pins

Picture looks like it is warped at the bottom and top of the picture. Have picture, no problem there, just not a centered picture anymore. Looks like the top of a half moon on the top and botom.

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 images of convergence problems.

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me" and your understanding. Again our apologies for any inconvenience due to the disconnection.

With your indulgence, to your concern:
  • Ifno amount of adjustment could align/merge the images, then it would besafe to assume that the convergence amplifiers are faulty.Additionally, the bowed effect strengthens the likelihood of faultyconvergence board.
  • This is a known common repair, so much sothat most owners are performing DIYs (do-it-yourself) for those unitsno longer under warranty. Should you consider the DIY, then pls findbelow specifics which may be helpful otherwise pls bear in mind that ifthe unit is still under warranty, a DIY could and would void saidwarranty. Your choice then of course, warranty repair or DIY.
To the actual repair:
  • Boardreplacement - by far the fastest, the easiest. As the term/nameimplies, identify/remove the erring board, seek/order a replacement,swap, align and the jobs is done.
  • Component level - thecomponents within the board are tested using a DVM or a VOM, thedefective parts identified, order a repair kit, desolder the defectivecomponents, replace them with the new components from the kit, cleanthe solder work on the underside of the PCB (printed circuit board),reassemble, align and the work is completed.
Should you consider board replacement:
  • Initially, pls determine the suffix (if there is) of your model HD52W59, something like YX22;
  • Pls goto;
  • pls click on the "CATALOG" button top near left;
  • in the "search for:", pls select Model Number;
  • in the next (right) box, enter HD52W59 plus the YX?? and click on the Search button;
  • on the next page, click on the model number on the left to confirm;
  • in the "Enter Description..." box, pls type "conv" less the quotes and click on Submit button;
  • you would be interested with the Convergence Amp board;
  • Alternately,you can call Tritronics for a 24 hr order. Pls get numbers to theiroffice nearest you from
Should you consider component level repair:
  • Plscontact Slinteriors @ They sell arepair kit that includes the 2 STK 392-??? ICs, resistors and picofuses.
  • Additionally or more importantly, they supply them as a completekit PLUS an illustrated instruction sheet detailing the repairprocedures.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

Check your screen. I have the same problem with mine. If the screen has a ripple in it, it could give the same effect.
