Question about RCA D52W20 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer


I have a RCA D52W20 HDTV and its about 3 years old. I believe the convergence board is going bad. There is a blue shadow around all the images. When you try to adjust it the color is all spread out. I don't want to spend $ 700 to fix it. Is there anywhere that I can just buy the board?

Double vision, believe one of the guns went bad

If the auto convergence feature is still listted under the setup menu then you need a convergence power supply board. If the auto convergence feature is no longer listed under the setup menu then you just need a repair kit. You can get either one from

Screen lookes like colores separating

Here's all I find regarding bad convergence from the techrepairCD:
RCA ~ITC222 D52W20~Convergence bad~~~ITC222~Replace leaky DL032 on
deflection board~~~~~~

RCA~D52W20Y ATC221~Convergence goes out/bowed after on for a few
minutes~~~ATC221~Problem may be on the deflection board. Was unable to
pinpoint where in this case.~~~~~~

RCA~D52W20BYX1 ITC222~Convergence way off after replacing small signal
board~EEPROMS were transferred over to new board~~~IK210 was
defective..transfer the new EEPROM back over.~Remember on these
sets*when replacing the SSB* if there is a small P on corner of
screen*hold volume on remote for 8 seconds after it reaches minimum.~~~~~

RCA~D52W20BYX1 ITC222~Can not align blue convergence* bottom really
bowed* possibly either color after replacing SSB.(Or no auto
convergence.~(Service menu: turn power off for 30 seconds* press vol dn
and ch dn* simultaneously for 8 seconds* set turns on with service menu
options)~~ITC222~In service menu* select convergence. If sensor
calibration was performed when convergence was too far off* it will not
alighn.~Get crosshatch with straight lines* perform sensor calibration*
then attempt convergence alignment again. Be sure to store settings*
then do sensor calibration again.~You must get a green flash of the
screen after sensor cal and a check in the box. RED flash indicated
convergence settings are too far off~~~~

RCA~D52W20BYX1 ITC222~no convergence correction~~~ITC222~LP650
(259271) DP670 (259246) & RP632 (259564) 4.7 3W on convergence power
supply board~~~~~~

First you need to read the supply voltages to the STK's. Black things, size of 2 match books on a big heatsink. Sounds like your supply voltage is low, could be a bad STICK STK. usyually stk 130-20 or 150, etc..

RCA P56812BL big screen porblems

this is a complete loss of convergence. FIrst question do you have the convegence option under setup in customer menu... if you dont then it might be the fl231 fuse problem common with these sets. if you do then try autoconvergence... if fails then you probally have a bad convergence power board. there are three diffrent boards that can affect convergence. convergence power, convergence amp, and small signal board..

Convergence problem

your model has two boards that control convergence. One is the convergence board. the other is the convergence board power supply, usually when more than one color is off its the Convergence power supply that is bad. You can get replacement circuit boards at the following link.

I have a rca hdtv r52wh77 1 year old ,i have color problems ,i cant get to the convergence set up ,please help.thks

Try looking at the main board very near the flyback and you should see 3 fuse links (they look like hard capacitors) one of them is probably open causing lack or power to the convergence board by way of the ribbon seated close to the vertical output IC
