    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.

    Same tv, same problem! Must be something about RCA. I've had this set only one year. I actually bought an identical one that would not even show a picture when I got it home. I returned it and got the one that's blown now.

    the colors on the picture are not line up

    I have this same problem. I had this tv for two years and it worked great, had no previous problems. I was watching it one day and I heard a little pop then the screen had curved from left to right on both top and bottom, so it was smaller in the center. Then I got three lines going across the top they were colors blue, green, and red. If I get this tv repaired, will I get this same problem, and if I replace the fuse at location fl231 and location dl321 will this fix my problem. Is this an auto convergence problem?

  • Anonymous Oct 04, 2008

    The centering convergence works (red and blue, horizontal and vertical) and the picture it normal in the center, but the picture bows out increasingly as it approaches the edges and the colors move from alignment in proportion to the bow. It looks like a 3-D fish-eye effect.

    I need help, My Screen is not even 2 yrs old, and My three colors are separated, is there a way to see if i can manually adjust it.

    RCA R52WH74 (ITC 222A) this set loses convergance, not only is the convergance lost, it also loses the adjustment setting from the menu (no convergance adjustment in the menu where it used to be)

  • Soldermonkey May 11, 2010

    I have the same TV and problem but I want to fix it myself. What do I need to figure out which boards are the right ones, test and replace the necessary one(s), and do the alignment?

    Thanks

On this particular model when your convergence is out of alignment, and the auto convergence is suddenly missing from the TV's menu all together, there is a easy fix.

Diode on Main Power supply, Location dl321 and fuse at Location fl231.

This problem has a high failure rate.

Great Tip!, saved me a lot of time troubleshooting. I couldn't find the right part so I had to substitute a standard part. It would have cost me 95.00 just for the tech to walk in the door and it cost me 8.00 to fix it. While I had it open I realized the lens were filthy!, cleaned up and now the pic is like a new tv! Turned out to be the fuse in the center of the 3 next to the flyback. FL231

Convergence issues in this set are generally divide among three diffrent cuicit boards. THere are adjustment that can be made by service techs in service mode if that is problem. However if it is something electrrical it generaly take replacing on these boards. then a alignment process. All is dependant on which boards have to be replaced

Go to menu then setup look for convergence if it is missing on menu then you have a open FUSE/ FL231, But if you have convergence on menu then go into service mode turnTV off then PRESS and hold at same time ch- and vol- wait for set to come on then release TV should now be in Factory settings.

The model number of your TV probably falls under the ITC-222 chassis design. Do a search based on that criteria and it should point you in the right direction. If I remember right, you need to replace FL231 on the deflector board though. Good luck

Panasonic pt52lcx15 TV. Recently, after approximately 5 min. The TV turns off. Is this some sort of power supply issue? Or, something else?


Try this.

Unplug the tv. take off the back panel. vacuum or blow out the dust with a can of compressed air (@ $3 at Staples). A lot of the projection tvs had a thermal sensor which would turn the tv off if it got to hot.

That is also a good time to clean the lenses. Be careful not to move them out of alignment. My tv worked like new after I did those things.

Bow tie looking picture with 3d color mis-alignment


you have lost convergence. First thing to check is to see if you are missing the convergence option in the customer setup menu. if you do not have this option then i suggest reading the article in the tips and tricks section entiltled "the fl231 fuse problem" this is a common and sometime easy repair if you do have it then you might need a convergence power board

It is most deffinately a convergence chip issue. The die for no reason. They can be bought online for around $10 dollars and anyone with experience with soldering can replace them pretty easily. I have done it.
