Question about RCA HD61W66 61" Projection HDTV

1 Answer

No convergence My convergence choice on the menu selection to automatically coverge my tv has totally disappeared. Because I wasn't there at the time when it started I'm unsure if there was a power surge. Is there anyway to reset the tv to see if it will scan the connection to read the convergence program again? Right now my tv is kind of half mooned and I cannot pull it down for a clear picture. Thanks, Angela

Re: No convergence

Usually when that happens it is related to problems on the deflection board a diode or fusible link has opened making the set act like its a direct view thereby having no convergence option. It will take an experienced tech to properly diagnose that problem.

How do I adjust the manual convergence? I am in the settings, but my TV is not letting me adjust anything. I chose the "reset to factory" choice, but that didn't fix the red/green shadows

Your convergence has failed and needs to be repaired. Once quick test is to goto your convergence menu and see if you can adjust red and blue. If not its has failed and needs to be fixed. You can call in a repair shop or you can get the parts and instructions from and do the repair yourself. Its a fairly easy DIY fix.

Help with RCA projection TV P46812BL (chasis ptk195AA)

You have probably blown one of the convergence ICs. Effectively the easiest thing to do is replacing the whole convergence board, so that no soldering is involved.

Here you can buy a replacement convergence board, just select your model.

Let me know if you need further help.

The Auto convergence feature listed under the setup menu will do it automatically. A common problem is the auto convergence feature will disappear from the setup menu. If yours has disappeared there is the convergence option missing repair kit from will solve the issue.

Covergence problem

your set has indications of several problems. red green and blue. indcate convegence issue. the fact that the picture is concave is a indication of totall loss of covergence power supply. the convegence menu missing idicate loss of some voltages from what know as the flyback.AND SHUTDOWN. indicate further problems. generally when convergence fails ..not always the set wont shut down. it could be a simple issue but further trobleshooting would have to occur to narrow it down.
