We have a RCA D52W23 rear projection TV. Now the color looks like it is in 3D. A friend has the same problem a few years ago and bought a part on line and fixed it themselves. What is the part and where...


projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both.

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

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 pics of convergence problems.

Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

This is not adjustable,have dead parts.The tv have a problems known as a convergence problems,it dead.Tv have colors lines R,G,B mis alignment anywhere in the pictures,have colors pictures shadows or 3D pictures look alike?The tv convergence board,the 2 STK convergence ICS and some or all it resistors are dead.These parts,must replaced on the tv convergence board to solved the tv convergence picture problems.The shop,will cost u $300-350 for parts and labors.

Tv has double image color red and a curl line on left upper corner also sometime in middle of tv it has line


This sounds like a problem with "convergence" of the TV. Convergence is the electronic aiming of the Red, Blue & Green projectors. Typical convergence problems look like double or triple images on part or all of the screen, wavy lines, curled edges, excessive red, green or blue color or tint, etc. Sometimes, convergence issues can be corrected in a menu setting of the TV that has to do with "Picture Settings" or "Advanced Settings".

If the colors are out of alignment a great deal or went out "all of a sudden" it will probably not be repairable via the menu adjustment described above - but is certainly worth trying.

If it does not straighten out with the menu adjustment, it will probably require replacement of the convergence integrated circuit(s) chips located in the TV. This was a big ticket repair years ago, but can be done sometimes for as little as $40 in parts. Don't let the low price fool you though.. It can easily take several hours (or more!) to access, remove & replace the components and reassemble the TV. Soldering skills are a must - and I'm not talking about soldering plumbing pipes here either. These are delicate electronic parts and need a 15 - 30 watt soldering iron and desoldering braid or solder ****** and LOTS of patience to perform CORRECTLY. As such, it is another "not a DIY project" unless you're willing to turn your TV into a large floor model paper weight. If you decide to attempt this repair, you should google your TV brand and model along with the term "convergence". Parts, costs and procedures vary by TV. Unplug the TV for a day or so before starting the work to let capacitors discharge fully - just to be safe. Lastly - don't forget the heat sink compound - it is an absolute *must*!

Bowed at top and bottom


No amount of cleaning is going to fix this problem, Go to menu look for setup see if you have convergences listed on menu if so try auto converge. If convergence is not on menu then you have a open fuse next flyback transfomer FL231 middle fuse.

Tv bows


I have the same TV and just finished having my TV repaired for the same problem. I was unable to converge the colors even in the advanced convergence setup menu. The lines were bowing so far that adjustment was not possible. I had to replace the vertical and horizontal convergence controllers located on the main electronics panel. They require a lot of soldering and should be done by a professional. Unfortunately this is a common "maintenance" repair that happens every 5-7 years, depending on the usage, costing around $500.00 for in home repair. DO NOT USE YOUR TV IF THE CONVERGENCE IS BAD AS IT MY CAUSE THE POWER SUPPLY TO BLOW resulting in addition repair costs.

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

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses.
This is a a fairly easy DIY job if you are handy and can follow directions. You can get complete repair kits from TvRepairKits.com or click here. They have put together DIY repair kits that include the OEM parts and step by step photo instructions for each repair. If you are not handy or can't follow directions we would suggest calling a shop.

Red and Green colors do no line up


It was most likely the convergence amplifiers. If you look up "convergence amplifier" on this site or google you will find lots of information. The part number(s) will be something like STK392-110.

I recently helped a friend repair this problem. If you are comfortable soldering it won't be too bad.

Power supply/convergence issue...


Your Projo is a complicated piece of equipment, involving 3 picture tubes (like 3 tv's), convergence failures are extremely common, I dont think $550 is totally unreasonable, but I dont think it is a power supply issue if it is just effecting 1 color, usually it would cost around $100 parts $300 labor to repair, might be a little high, I suppose they are also charging you for pickup and delivery, I hate taking sets into office as that sometimes jars stuff loose or cracks boards.
