There is no generic prob on RCA's. You gave enough of a description though that im guessing its a itc222 chassis (please verify this). If it is you have a very common problem. You must have good soldering skills on this one. Lack of a convergence menu mean that the convergence power supply fuse has blown. Before changing this fuse it is important to reflow the solder on the ihvt, vert. ic. and surrounding components, as this is why the fuse blows. Then replace the fuse fl231.

RCA r52wm24 projection hdtv. Colors of tv not aligning images look like they are in 3d without glasses.


this is called convergence.the first step in diagnoseing this set is to go into customer menu under the setup option. DO you have the donvergence listed in this menu. if you dont read this http://www.fixya.com/support/r1062030-fl231_problem_convergence_not_in. if you do then try using autoconvergence and manual options in this menu. if it doesnt work then more than likely you will have some faulty components in the convergence cuircit. let me know and ill seel if i can help more

It is like looking at 3d in all three colors. i


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

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....
  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

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

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right. And you should be able to get the grid straight.

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

Note: If you TV has as flash focus or magic focus button only try pressing the button. If it fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a fix

My rca r52wm24 HD/TV monitior,is having ploblems with the picture, last night all of the suden the picture looks like a 3d movie with out the glasse, what is the problem


the problem is called convergence.this model was made with 2 options for convergence.first go into menu of tv,find convergence.if it has auto convergence activate it,IMPORTANT dont do any thing until its done(it will reach 100%,you can see it on the screen.the 2nd option is manual convergence,in that case you have to adjust the red onto the green then blue onto the green,DO NOT MOVE THE GREEN.both red/blue will move up and down,left and right.

Tv looks like it is in 3D


Sounds like your convergence amp board has gone out and will need replaced. If you feel like giving it a try yourself this web site has them fairly cheap and they have an 800 line if you need help determining your board number.

Old rca big screen


the convergence is out usually on the crts like this you have to replace 2 convergence ICs usually numbered STK392-110 or -120 or -150 or -180 or somthing similar. Sometimes the resistors in the same circuit are also blown and need to be replaced. I don't know what these are labeled on this tv. It is a pretty simple fix for someone who can use a soldering iron. After replacing the chips a full manual covergence is needed.

If you do not see convergence in menu when you go to setup then you have a open fuse FL231 Next to flyback transfomer on right side there is 3 in a roll small brown rectanigler looking caps they are fuses the one in the middle is bad replace it .

Convegence problems are so common on these sets. The bowing picture indicates to me that you have lost complete convergence. Now the first question that i always ask is do you have the convergence option under setup in the customer menu. If you do not then i say congratulations this is a simple inexpensive repair if you can solder a component. this is known as the fl231 problem and i have a article relating to the problem under my profile in tips and tricks section. that goes into detail on how to repair this problem.. If you do have the convergence option then we wil have to go further into troubleshooting. there are three possible cuircits that effect this.. if you do have convergence. try autoconvergence option and see how far it gets. let me know how it goess.

This is what known as a convergence problem. First question is in your setup menu do you have a convergence option.. if you do then do you have any control in that mode does the crosshars move up and down and side to side... if you dont then you have a convergence power supply issue.. if you do it could be a setup issue. IF you do not have convergence in your setup menu then it possiblely be a special fuse.. and bad electrical connections. so let me know and ill see if we can narrow it down further

The convergence is way off on my projection rca tv - i lost the manual but i have set it before in a menu but caint remember how to get to it Was watching a movie, tv shut off and powered back on by...


It should be in the options menu. If not often RCA will drop the option when the convergence ICs go out and often the set will shut down. Heres alink that should be able to help you get a manual and parts if needed. If they dont have your manual leave an email and they should be able to get one quckly usually within an hour or two.
