Question about RCA HD52W59 HDTV Projection Television

2 Answers

RCA HD52W59 HDTV: We had some speakers set too close to our TV which caused the convergence to go wacko...usually moving the speakers away fixes the problem-- this time, it didn't work, though. So-- how can I fix the problem? The "auto convergence" menu item is missing from the setup menu for some reason...

    But would placing speakers in front of the TV cause the convergence board to go out? It almost seems like it needs to be degaussed...

When you lose auto convergence - the culprit is the FL321 fuse.

(Fuseable Link #321) You will see the designation silkscreened directly on the circuitboard.
This fuse comes directly from a terminal on the high voltage transformer, which had a solder ring crack around it which could have caused the fuse to blow.

Soldering the transformer (flyback) terminals and replacing the fuse fixed the problem. The fuses are located to the right of the transformer at the rear of it.

This one was a 400ma/125v. rating.

Having speakers too close should not be the reason for the blown fuse - probably a coincidence.

SUMMARY: The first thing to do on this TV with a convergence issue is to replace fuse FL321 (.4A 125v) and re-solder the flyback. That fuse feeds the standby voltage for the convergence board's power supply. That fuse is beside the flyback transformer on the deflection board.

If you choose to have the repair done, you're looking at $300 (depending on your location).
About $4 and 2 hours of your time if you do it yourself.

WARNING - I always include in TV repair questions that Solid State repairs should be done by trained professionals - as there are potentially LETHAL amounts of stored energy that must be discharged before servicing any part inside the TV. Working on them while charged - or improperly discharged can lead to serious injury or death.

That said - many lay-persons have successfully completed this repair with reasonable precautions adhered to.

Hi,
When TV gets problem with convergence board, 'Auto Convergence' option disappears from Menu and will be there back when convergence board would be replaced.
Required convergence board is available in Part Store, click to see price info.
If you are handy with electronic stuff repair then its easy for you to replace board and if you are not comfortable with it, please call local TV repair shop for board replacement.
Thanks.

I have a rca HD52W59 and I am getting a double image of red and green tried the covergence setting does not help


Make sure your convergence is working or at least going thru the motions faster than normal . what was causing that to happen to my tv was that i had my component stereo speakers surrounding my tv on both sides and directly on top of the tv.what you have to do is take all speakers away from the tv unplug and hold the power button for 30 sec to totally discharge power from your tv let it sit unplugged overnight or least 4hrs .after that plug it in and adjust with convergence menu.

RCA HDTV floormodel, model # : HD52w59. The picture does not come in well at all, and the menu is distorted, it seems maybe there might be a bulb out in the left side but I am not sure, how would I fix...


Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.

The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded over.

Rca convergence ic's


RCA projection televisions usually utilize descrete component to achieve convergence. The most likely candidate for this problem is a small fuse that is open on the back of the deflection board. This is usually caused by a cracked soder joint. Either at one of the pins of the IHVT or the rectifier connected to it. Re-soder all of the points on the fly-back transformer and replace the fuse. This should correct your problem.

I have an RCA HD52w59 with a convergence problem. I've been told different things on this site. First I was told to change FL231, CL230, and DL231. I've also been told to replace both IC's (STK392-110)...


Your set doesnt have STK ICs. If the convergence adjustment option has disappeared from the on screen menu, then replace FL231, DL231 and CL230 If the adjustment option hasnt disappeared from the menu then you need to check the resistors on the convergence power supply board some of those will be open. The actual convergence Board will usually not develope problems just the Convergence power supply if the convergence adjustment option is still in the on screen menu.

This problem is commonly refered to as a CONVERGENCE problem. Question 1 do you have convergence seting in setup menu...if you do NOT it could be a special small fuse. 2 if you go into setup then convergence. then can you move crosshairs in setup. Since you have a arcing picture this indicates convergence power supply problems....in which has to be replaced or repaired,
