While watching tv - the colors went out of alignment with each other. What could be the issue? We have turned off and turned back on after 5 min
my rca 52 in has the same problem. but seems to not auto converge . and even when i manuel converge the screen is still looks like a 3 d movie. i have tried every thing.. and its only a year old.. I had same problem as above replaced the fuse, but it ran 2hours and blew, any suggestions, thanks
The model number of your TV probably falls under the ITC-222 chassis design. Do a search based on that criteria and it should point you in the right direction. If I remember right, you need to replace FL231 on the deflector board though. Good luck Dave.

The tv have a problems known as a convergence problems,it is dead.Tv have any colors lines R,G,B mis alignments,have any colors shadows pictures or 3D pictures look alike?Yes,than the tv convergence board it is dead,convergence board must require changes 2 STK convergence ICS and some or all of it resistors too.To fixed the tv convergence board to fixed the tv convergence picture problems.The tvs shops will cost u like $300-350 for parts and labors.
Convergence should be showing on Menu. Hit menu then go to setup you should see it listed their.
Heres How to Enter Service Menu for alinement of
convergence BUT I MUST WARN YOU be very carefull of adjustments in wrong alinement. With TV turned off PRESS and HOLD Both CH- and VOL- release when set comes on Now you should be in Teachician Service Menu there you should be able to Do convergence alinement and set Auto convergence.
you have lost convergence. First thing to check is to see if you are missing the convergence option in the customer setup menu. if you do not have this option then i suggest reading the article in the tips and tricks section entiltled "the fl231 fuse problem" this is a common and sometime easy repair if you do have it then you might need a convergence power board
Go to menu then setup look for convergence if it is missing on menu then you have a open FUSE/ FL231, But if you have convergence on menu then go into service mode turnTV off then PRESS and hold at same time ch- and vol- wait for set to come on then release TV should now be in Factory settings.
first question is the picture also bowed in on top and bottom. if so you may have the common fl231 fuse problem if you do consult the fl231 problem under the tips and tricks section. if you dont then you defently hav a convergence issue. the thing to look for is under setup do you have the autoconvegence option if you dont then you have that problem.
The convergence circuit is the problem. If you can solder and are comfortable working inside the set where there are potentially dangerous high voltages even when unplugged, you can fix this yourself. First locate the convergence ICs which are large black ICs attached to a heatsink that will be marked STKxxx. Try resoldering the pins on these ICs first. If that fails to resolve the problem, replace the ICs. Please note that there could be additional small parts that require replacement as well. Start with the ICs and let me know the results.
you will need the convergence power supply to repair the issue if its all three colors out of alignment. Leave these people a email with your model number and symptoms, they are RCA experts and will be able to help you get exactly what you need http://servicemanuals.vstore.ca/
you need to replace chemical type fuse marked FL231 part number 259213, it`s located next to the flyback transformer, theres 3 of them there but 231 is the only one I`ve seen cause your problem, replace it and you`ll be all set.Happy Holidays !
