    Here is the whole thing seems i missed some dialog, took this machine apart last night the mirror is in good shape cleaned the lenses, picture is much brighter now! However still have the redish blue swatch in the lower left corner of the screen and about a third of the screen from the left has poor convergence and a 3D look to the picture and also warped lettering when using the guuide in DirectTV. The right side looks fine..

The convergence is quite fixable, but what itlooks like is that the memory locations that store the convergence data are getting scattered, and you'll need to look into why that happened andfix that FIRST, then fix the convergence.

If this can't be fixed by adjustments,replace both STK392-040 convergence IC's with OEM or better quality = I use Panasonic with great success. They are soldered in and requires at least PCB removal or perhaps entire chassis.

I have some more steps for you to try:

First, take a look at the following web site information. Unfortunately, some RCA sets have manual convergence boards - whichmeans you can do nothing but replace it and adjust the manual controlson the board itself.

But some of the newer ones (Maybe yours) can be accessed through theservice mode. So, give it a try. I have also copied the part of theweb site that gives the entry code to get into the service mode:

---------

http://myweb.accessus.net/~090/how2adj.html#5.4

5.4 GE / RCA / PROSCAN
Read the _ SERVICE MODE WARNING _ before proceeding.

To enter service mode, push and hold the [Menu] button on the set.While holding, push and release the [Power] button, then the [Vol +]button.

You will now have some information on the screen: "P0 V0"

To actually be able to change these values, you must push [Vol +] onthe remote so the information reads V76. Then pushing on the Channel+/- will change the "P" value.

P1 - 3 are error codes. If there is a problem with the set that can beself-diagnosed, the "V" will report the code. These codes are availablein the RCA repair manual.

P4 - 7 control the horizontal size, shift, vertical size and shift.

You may also find a summary leaflet for the service tech clippedsomewhere inside the chassis. The procedures for getting into theservice mode, as well as the service items of interest will be there.

If you're attempting to adjust color or geometry errors, you'll needthe Video Essentials DVD, Laser Disc or some other source of testmaterial.

--------

With luck, you MIGHT be able to adjust it back into better alignments.

If you end up needing service, the price of the convergence board - ifyou can get it from RCA Parts - should not be over $100, but I have notactually checked it lately - and it depends on the model.

The installation is quite time consuming, so it may take a couple of hours for a tech to install and align it.

In my opinion the $400 plus charge is way high. I encourage you to lookelsewhere. Also, the RCA web site has a link to authorized servicecenters; you might try that, also.

Wishing you the best,
saumya.

RCA D61W20 Projection Television with ITC222 chassis Here is the whole thing , took this machine apart last night the mirror is in good shape cleaned the lenses, picture is much brighter now! However still...


unfotunatly the itc222 has no convergence ics it uses a series of trsansiitors. the fact that u have some areas of the screen clear may mean you need a technician to do a service alignment. when you go into setup does the convergence crosshairs move up and down and side to side on both the blue and red? if they do their may not be a problem with the power board. ONe more thing if you replace this board you will still need a technician to do a service alighnment

Red Convergence Bowing




You have a convergence problem. Here are some of the most common symptoms.
 
Screen looks 3D
One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu. 
Screen is bowed in but stationary.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem. 

>>>Solution<<<< 

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. 

Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kit for your exact model. The kit includes a photo instruction guide, original Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, etc. Everything you need to fix it yourself.
