    How do I get to this fuse? What part of the TV needs unscrewed? I bought the fuse...just don't know where it goes

    Looks like the tv shows are all 3D. When turned on and off a blue, red and green line appear across the screen. Now it turns off by itself and tries to restart itself and does this for about 3 times. It also looks concave.

    I have the same problem with my RCA except in addition, the picture is warped. The picture looks as if it's been stretched to the corners of the screen. My convergence option on the menu has disappeared as well.

    Other than fixing the convergence problem, will this fuse solve the warped picture problem as well or is there a completely different problem I'm facing?

I had the problem with my rca looking like it was in 3d. anyways, I read this post and ordered the part ($3.79). did the soldering and TV works perfect now. Txs so much for the info on how to fix the problem. I was so worried it was going to cost a ton to have someone repair the TV. Much appreciated!

Just like the forum says; follow step by step and make sure to re-solder the FLYBACK and this will work! I had to pay a little more than $13 after shipping and cost of Fuse (about $5!!). Don't bother with local TV repairmen, the 10 or so I talked to are very rude and cocky people. was very helpful and quick with ordering, although I had to wait on a RCA Company backorder!! Thanks for the help!

Do you have covergence in customer setup menu? i fix a common problem with set all the time. if you find there is no "convergence" in customer setup menu then it could be a special small fuse that blows due to bad solder connectiions

    ok this fuse is rather small its a small brown rectangular fuse on power board. its a 400 mili amp fuse between two other fuses most of time it kinda hard to get too. You have to know a little about soldering. too. You would have to order it special your local hardware store would NOT have it. rca part number 259213. The main thing is you would have to resolder the conections of the FLYBACK transformer. this is what cause the fuse to blow in the first place

red, green, and blue lines curve across the top of tv is cause by defective convergence STK IC or you have open resistor at convergence section. if you have defective RGB Color vertical ramp probably you have defective STK IC..

Hi there, this is what we call in the industry convergence board failure. this board regulate the rgb and keeps everything in order so the picture looks nice and clean. when this board starts to malfunction, what you are witnessing is usually the result.

This is called convergence board failure. try to re calibrate the convergence. if the re calibration fails, this means your convergence board will need to be replaced or, rebuilt.
