Question about RCA HD52W59 HDTV Projection Television

1 Answer

RCA HD52W59YX35 Convergance problem, three colors sagging horizontally across top of screen, Auto convergance option not visible at set up menu. tried unplugging for a couple of minutes. (tv has not been recently moved) Is this worth repairing unit less than 2 years old. The convergence option is not available in the "customer" menu or on the "service" menu. I am taking an 84 fault code---"Tube Type Is RP, But Convergence Was Not Detected". I have found a 400mA 125V fuseable link thats bad right next to the flyback transformer. Does anyone know where I can buy a new one online at? Any ideas why it would blow? I'm stationed in England so big screen TV repair shops are hard to find, I'm on my own here. :) Any ideas/info are greatly appreciated.

It has tripple vision and looks like a bow tie.

hi, sounds like a convergence issue. try this...
  • Look through your manual. Your manual will always give you the most specific directions for your particular model. Look for an "adjusting convergence" or "set manual convergence" section.

  • Enter the menu on your TV. Use the remote control and bring up the menu.
  • Choose "Convergence." This may be under "Picture Settings," "Function" or "Advanced Options."
  • Select a color. You will have red, green and blue to choose from. Do each one, starting with red.
  • Press "Enter." A crosshair pattern will appear on your screen.
  • Adjust vertically. If there is a horizontal red line visible, press the up or down arrow keys (or channel up or down) to adjust the convergence until the line is superimposed on the horizontal-center line of the white crosshair.
  • Adjust horizontally. If there is a vertical red line visible, press left or right (or volume up or down) to adjust horizontally. Do this until the line is superimposed on the vertical line of the white crosshair.
  • Save settings. It is important to save your settings when you are done, instead of simply exiting the menu.
  • Repeat these steps for all colors.

  • good luck!

    just found the problem fuse that causes this to happen. The set I have also was not converging, and the auto convergences option was also gone. The small fuse labeled fl231 which is right next to the big plastic piece with the large red wire coming from it in the left corner of the circuit board closest to the back. It is the middle of the 3 small fuses that are smaller than a Chiclets gum. I was able to pull up the circuit board and jump the fuse with some alligator clips and the set looked great again. Every one says watch out for the unit with that red wire SO WATCH OUT!

    damortch check out I think I found them on there gonna call them tomorrow to see if I can get mine there.

    Go into the menu and look for Screen Convergence. It may also have an auto convergance option try that first. If it gives a suto error or you cant adjust it manually the convergance IC's may be bad or a component on the convergance board.
