    where is the main board near flyback








  • Jellybean36 Apr 08, 2008

    Tv just went haywire out of the clear blue. Well I did change my colors from personal to vibrant to adjust the flesh tones in an older movie yesterday. The colors and pic went crazy. I tried auto convergence and the tv turned off and back on. Now there is a bow of colors at the top and bottom. pic still stinks. Most of all the auto convergence option is no longer available on the menu and I did try to reboot the tv twice per the manual. can u please help?

    My convergence is all messed up and the Auto Convergence option is not on the menu where it is shown to be in the manual. I looked through all my menu options, it's nowhere to be found.

    My TV is just shut down. I was able to unplug it for a few minutes and it came back on. It has shut down again today. I was able to get it to power on once and the screen was as described. None of the convergence settings made a difference. Now the power light comes on after being unplugged for a while and then it shuts off without ever showing anything on the screen.

    I got a RCA "R52WH77" from a friend, and the screen keeps on going off, for a second before it does, there is a flash of Red, Blue, and Green lines across the top, and then it repeats 3 times before shutting down, it then will not start up again for at least a minute, or till a capacitor discharges, I need to fix this, cause it's my best computer monitor!!! I removed the parts from it, and mounted the guts in a old server case, and attached it to a beam in my ceiling, then ran a VGA to DVI cable to it, and ran a program to reverse the image displayed.
    Please give me detailed instructions on how to fix this so I can watch my HD porn, just kidding or am I? assholamio@hotmail.com

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

HDLP50W151 50 in. Rear Projection HDTV Television: have a 48 inch rca projection tv and the picture i...


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 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.

If its only one color its the Convergence amp board that needs replacement. If its more than one color you cant control you need the Convergence power supply board. If you need parts for your model let me know and I will post a link.

that model has digital convergence . It could be solder related or you may be needing a new convergence module in the near future. www.partstore.com may have the module in stock.
