The convergnce amplifiers have failed.
This is a common old-age problem.
This requires replacing the convergence amplifiers and possibly resistors and fuses. A repair shop would charge $300-$400 to repair.
If you are tech savy or know someone who is, thae parts will cost around $40.00. Search this site for specific instructions.
Good Day,

Rca hd52w59 tv has red, blue and green lines at the top and the images are doubled. What is wrong?


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.

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

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.

My HD52W67 has concaved picture


This is a convergence problem and can be repaired relatively easily. If you can solder, you can fix this yourself. First try resoldering the pins on the convergence ICs. If that fails to resolve the problem, replace the ICs. These are large black ICs attached to a heat sink and should be marked STKxxx.

Keep us posted.

RCA HD52W67 convergence menu missing from menu and has a b,r,g line going through the top of the menu and it looks like every thing is in 3d


that model doesnt use the two STK ICs that most other models use. Try replaceing fusw fl231 . The schematics arent easially available for any RCA TVs unless they are the older projection ones. I would recommend checking with this link and seeing if they have the service manual or perhaps they can get it, if you leave an email with your model number.
