    where do you get the fuses to replace it, and can you fix it any other way until you get the fuses?Our tv is the same make and it just all the sudden went into 3-d mode with a curve at the top of the screen with green,blue,and red lines and no convergence option like stated in manual to fix??

    If you do not see convergence on menu when you go to setup then Fuse FL231 is opened replace it and that will fix your problem it will be on right side of Flyback Transfomer there is 3 fuses right in a roll it will be the middle fuse they look small brown rectrangler caps but they are fuses.

My RCA D52W23 has 3 colors split.

Thats a convergence failure. You can get a repair kit called " The ITC222 and ITC222A convergence option missing repair kit" From which should solve the issue. The kit also contains the CD with instructions.
