    no, it hasn't been worked on at all. what i mean by it's gone is, it's no where to be found on any menu. we've searched all the menus up and down. when the tv was first bought it was there, but now it isn't. the screen looks like it's in 3d but we can't find the convergence to re-align everything.

By the convergence menu i would assume you mean in the customer setup menu. although i have seen this at the shop on newer itc222 i guess it can happen with older sets...is the convergence gone...is it red green and blue.. if not it might be cut off in the service alignment menu...if that is true. how did it get cut off. has the set been worked on?

My rca d52w26 convergence is gone.


Look in the on screen menu for convergence and if it is not there you have a open ( bad ) protection part on the main board, a kit exists for most of these sets for this===buttons alone will not likely help here.

the convergence menu missing is a result of this and the part in question is often bad because of bad solder connections.

If you need more info let me know.

The convergance menue is gone. I need to adjust the convergance badly but it is no longer in the menu


You need to resolder the flyback transformer and replace fuse FL221 off pin 11 of the flyback transformer. The convergence power supply is not coming on so system control thinks a convergence circuit is not installed.

There are bad solder connections on the flyback transformer and fuse #FL231 is open. Pretty hard to repair this yourself.

RCA 52 INCH CONVERGENCE PROBLEM HELP/already replaced the fl231 fuse


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. 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, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith instructions from the links below.

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

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms
  • Screen Looks 3-D
  • Colors wont align
  • Screen may look distorted or warped
  • No Audio/Video - makes a chirping sound.
Problem #2

Another common problem is dull or washed out video.
Your TV may have one or more of the following symptoms....
  • Dull looking picture
  • White looking picture
  • Halos around objects
  • Red/Orange looking picture

Auto convergence disappeared from the menu on my 52" RCA TV, Model #R52WH73. This TV is just 1 week out of warranty and the timing is impeccable.


Replace FL231 that will bring back your convergence option in the menu. If the Fuse blows again, you will need the Convergence power supply board. If you need more assistance please let me know

Red convergence is out of alignment


If the mis-convergence is only noticable on the left center and the top and bottom left side of the screen is good, then it sounds more like a pincushion distortion problem rather than a convergence one. Otherwise, you could have a bad pair of convergence IC's or capacitors / solder connection problems. I would doubt that adjusting the service menu would correct this problem, and you could make it much worse by trying. Better have a technican work on it if the picture quality is still good otherwise.

Convergence setup menu gone


No rest on this model other than unplugging to let it return to factory default. If your a tech .. Check R19722 and R19703 for open. Both 750 K. these open make the convergence menu to be gone.
