Question about RCA HD52W59 HDTV Projection Television

1 Answer

I wish i had replied sooner but yes i have the bow tie and I do have control over my cross hairs and I also chanced that fuse and resoldered my flyback for no reason because I now realize I did not need to. Okay my convergence power board or convergence amp board, is the anything I can do to fix it myself ? or do I have no choice but to get a service tech to charge me for what I can purchace a new big screen for ? I remember my screen going bad after a big power outage from a lightning storm in the neighborhood. when i turned the TV back on i had the convergence problem. Whats my option? Do I have one?

If its just one color thats out its most likely the Comvergence Board. If its more than one color then its most likely the Convergence Power supply.

2001 Sony KP-53V90 53 in. Rear Projection Television has a problem related only to the picture, the top and bottom of the screen are bowed into the middle, the video feed label and volume scale are also...


This is probably the notorious "light engine" problem that all of these Sonys of this design run into sooner or later. It is usually more expensive to repair that what the TV is worth, sadly. A Sony authorized repair center can confirm this.

Tv turns on. There is a picture but it looks like your looking through a fish bowl. Bowes into the middle from both sides. It also looks 3D. Any Clue??


This is usually a convergence problem, although the bowing normally is from the top and bottom rather than from the sides. There may also be an issue with the pioncushion circuit that causes the bowing. Try the automatic convergence adjustment first. If that fails to resolve the problem, then resoldering the convergence ICs would be next followed by replacing the ICs should the resoldering fail.

If you wish to attempt the repair, please update this and confirm the model number to be VS-60607 and I'll provide additional details.

Thanks,

Mitsubishi VS-50501A convergence problem. The image looks like a bow tie and the convergence will not align. This TV only has manual convergence. I already replace the STK391-020 ICs, it has 3 of them....


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms
  • Screen Looks 3-D
  • Colors wont align
  • Screen may look distorted or warped
  • No Audio/Video - makes a chirping sound.
Problem #2

Another common problem is dull or washed out video.
Your TV2_bing.gif may have one or more of the following symptoms....
  • Dull looking picture
  • White looking picture
  • Halos around objects
  • Red/Orange looking picture

Green bow tie, convergence not helping


Yes, your geometry correction has failed and you will need to seek qualified tech for help. You need what are called STKs and you should be able to get the job done inhome for under 300.00

Convergence - bow problem


If you know how to solder on a solid state pruinted circuit board, try to first resolder the convergence IC's. There are two of them, they are black and stand up on a metal heat sink. The IC's will start with stk and have some numbers following that. Sometimes you can get away with resoldering BUT most of the time they have to be replaced. Consult a trained service person if you dont have any TV repair experience as thei like I said is a solisd state set and trhere are really no user replaceable parts inside of them.

Green Convergence Problem... Is it Convergence adjustment or replace STK392-110 ICs


You really need solid state elctronic experience to work on a printed circuit board unless you want to take a chance an bugger it up. Yes its the STK IC's and Yes you have to take the board out and unsolder the IC, install new ones and make sure you put enough heat sink compond on the heat sink, and then resolder them and then check the fusable resisitors and then fire it up and do a professional alighnmentt using a NTSC grade cross hatch generator. Its best if you seek out a pro to assist you in this repair.
