Question about RCA P60920BL 60" Rear Projection Television

Covergence and Bowed Picture Problem

Turned the TV on today and found that all three of the colors are off the same amount in convergence and that the picture is bowed narrower in the middle. What can I do to reset the TV or is it possibly a resistor or an IC chip? Thank You for any help you can provide.

    I have the identical problem, tv was fine when i was home on lunch, turn it on after work and all 3 colors are off in the same way the hour glass look. then i shut it off and it blew ther fuse, replaced it and i still have the convergence problems and a small whine!!! so how do i get to the convergence adjustments?

    also where is the ic i've seen described as the cause?

Can you adjust any color of convergence in user menu blue, or red up or down left or right. if you can make any up or down left or right adjustments on any color then the likelihood it wont be a convergence ic. it would be a output resistor. so see if you can get any movement. with it being bowed i was suspect an convergence ic.

I had 3 pictures in 1 and a bowed 3d screen. I replaced the fuse and re soldered the flyback. The picture looks good now but I still have the 3 in 1 picture?


The problem in in the convergence circuit not the horizontal area. There should be 2 large black ICs inside marked STKxxx. These are the convergence ICs. Try resoldering the pins on these first. Should that not resolve the problem, replace the ICs.

Please keep us posted on your progress.

Projection sets have two very common problems.

The first common problem is convergence

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped or bowed
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Colors out of porportion, maybe a bulb went out


When you have a 3-d effect. this is called convergence. Is the picture disorted or bowed in. if the picture is bowed in then this is an indicaTION of complete loss of power to covergence curcit. I always check to see if you have the convergence option in the setup menu if you do not then i suggest reading the fl231 problem in the tips and tricks sectionl
