SOURCE: convergence problem

Yes, the convergence circuit can fail without blowing any fuses. These Tvs are tough to repair because the convergence output devices are transistors and there will be other small components damaged as well. Get an estimate from a reputable service center before going any further.

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

SOURCE: 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

You can see some more examples and find a fix here

Hello The common FL231 fuse problem that these set has can be identified by asking the question DO you have the convergence option under setup in the customer menu. If you do not then there is a 99 percent chance you have this. I have written detail repair instrucitons on this under my profile in the tips and tricks section of fixya. I use union electronics for parts but just google the part and you can find many distribitors of the fuse. should not cost no more than 5 dolars and if you can solder the repair shouldnt take more than an hour to complete. Be carefull and good luck. This repair is on you can do if you have any trouble let me know.
