Rca p56926 convergence problem

I have a RCA p56926 projection TV
I turned it on the other day and they colors are all messed up. It has the concave effect at top and bottom, looks like its a cheesy 80's 3d movie. Can anyone tell me how to get to the crosshairs screen to try and adjust this. No where does it have this option. I found a site saying to try to hold the menu button and press power then vol ^. This brought me to another screen with P0 and V0 but then nothing. Any help would be appreciated

Re: rca p56926 convergence problem

I have a 56 inch RCA Television , with the same exact problem
the tv is now about 12 years old and has been fixed twice for this problem.
RCA is aware of this problem and i fail to understand why they would continue to manufacture a product that is defective and could be unsafe.
you need a tech to look at it . soldering is fix or new board ,
i had two "L" brackets installed to keep the " plug in" board stable .. seemed to be the root of problem. these tv's don't like to be moved.
the tv is serviced by Thompson products U.S.A.
mine broke down right away. and even after three years and a second time . i complained to rca that for three grand i paid for tv ... it better work more than three years or they would be recieving a rather large paper wieght on the front door step.

Re: rca p56926 convergence problem

Your set has a repair issue with the convergence circuit.
Adjustments in the service menu will not help.............I agree
with Guest comment.... circuit board repair or replacement is
what you both need.....................T.

Rca p56926 screen is concave and cant adjust convergence in menu

Convergence can only be repaired by going into the unit itself....You MUST know how to do this or risk a lot more qualified assistance!

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~~~~~~

RCA 52 in HDTV red, green and blue colors not alligned - concave

That repair only repairs the issue of the convergence option missing from the on screen menu. If thats what your problem is then the ITC222A convergence option missing repair kit at the following link should repair the issue. The kit contains the fl231, DL231, CL230 and the CD with detailed instructions.

RCA P56926 Would not turn off

This tv make a lot loose connections. If you re solder and nothing change, check fly back area's is OK?... Look around convergence board for liquid coolant ( some times CTR liquid coolant projection splitter , becarfull, Liquid is danger!!) Wash yous hands and clean chassis with acetone.
