Cant find convergence on menu screen

The HD61LPW42 is a RCA DLP which doesnt have convergence. If the convergence is out of alignment you have a three CRT TV such as the D52W19, HD52W59 RCA Check the model number from the rear tag and let me know what the model number is.

RCA HD61LPW42 - no picture

I haven't worked on an RCA DLP but have on Samsung DLP, based on your description it sounds like the color wheel is bad. Take the back off and turn on TV make sure its not a fan making the noise ,but most likely its the "wheel" it is inside the light engine probably right next to where the lamp is plugged in. If the whine comes from this area definitely the wheel.

RCA DLP TV needs color wheel replaced

I used the internet and found others who had the same problem. Two individuals had a brief description on how to replace the color wheel in a DLP TV. Three small torque screws and a ribbon connector was all that was need for removal; once the access panel on the back was opened. I would guess that this process is the same for all DLP TV's, with some small variations!
