    Just to follow up a bit the board I tap on to straighten out the picture has two large red wires coming from what looks to be a transformer and has a sticker with part # 56096260 is this the power supply board I need to repair the problem? You referenced part # 271860 didnt want to order the wrong part must be crossed referenced.

    Thanks for your help! One more question then I will be good. The board I tap on to straighten out the picture has two large red wires coming out of what looks to be a transformer and has a sticker on the board with #56096260 is this crossed referenced to the part number 271860. Just wanted conformation before ordering the part. I asumed that this the power supply board.

    I'm having the same type of problems with my RCA HDTV model HD52W59. I had my tv on for about 6 hours, turned it off to take my family to get some ice cream, came back and turned the tv on and I have three lines accross the television, the color is out of wack, and it sounds like exactly the same problem Fuzz had. What do i do to fix this problem? I dont want to mess with the tv to much but I have tried to make sure all the conections are not loose, but i'm not a tv repair person so i dont want to mess with it to much. as you know though this tv is huge and taking it anywhere is going to be a task in itself. how do i fix the problem? please take the time to get back to me, thanks a bunch. my nights ruined, this stinks!

    Bought this tv in April 2006 and had to have a repair guy only 3 months later for a blown fuse (thankfully under warranty). The t.v. has been fine since. Suddenly last week the convergence no longer works (Of course the warranty just ran out!). The center will "converge" but the outsides and top and bottom of the screen are bowed and won't align using automatic or manual convergence. I really just want to know if it's worth fixing. I hate the thought of replacing a barely two year old tv. Any thoughts or suggestions would be helpful!

Two boards govern this circuit . 1) convergence power supply board # 271860 2) convergence amplifer # 271861 . In most cases amp board is your problem . You might want to check the amp board for loose connections on it .Most of the times its the cable sockets on the borad have loose pins . This the board that has the metal heat sinks in a row of about nine of them on the board . Good luck

    Now if it is the board that is on the bottom left side then it is the power/sweep module . That part number is 271865 . The part 271860 is the convergence power supply and is located above this board to the left of convergence amp board . If you are talking about the flyback transformer with the two red wires which one red wire is slightly smaller than the other your part number is the 271865. If you have a magnifer and soldering iron your cause maybe located of that flyback . A loose connection . If you don't have a soldering iron but can see the loose connection take it to a shop and have them solder it for you ( the board only ) . You may also keep in mind that this board is not easy to replace . You must disconnect those two red wires that have to be accessed through the front behind the speaker grille . But if you have the soldering iron or can have access to one it would be easier due to you only have to lift the board and turn it over to solder the loose connection . Any questions let me know . Good luck

If the D board didnt correct the convergence issue the problem has got to be the wave generator on the A board or possibly the Velocity boards themselves that are bad.

Mitsubishi WS-65908 Error Code 24

If you have an ohm meter, check the resistance from F9A04 to ground, and then reverse the leads and check F9A05 to ground. These supply +24 and -24 to the convergence integrated circuits. The conv ic's may be bad. Also, code 24 usually indicates vertical deflection failure as well. One other check to make.....The pic tubes on this set may leak a few drops of coolant onto the boards. Look VERY carefully for liquid drops on the boards or a green and or white corrosion spot or two on the boards under the pic tubes-near the front of the chassis.

Bad picture

Good Day, tater5;

Sounds like you have a convergence problem. If the picture is bowed, please repair as soon as possible before 'the problem' causes additional concerns. It sound's like the 'conv' IC's have failed.

If you are handy the convergence IC's are big and black and attached to a large heat sink and will have numbers like STK 392-something.

Not handy? Then call a factory authorized service dealer to fix this for you.

Good Luck, big IRISH.

please recheck your model# it should read HD52W59YX39 if this is the correct model the part # is 271850 cost $166.99
changing this part will cause major alignment
the part can be replaced - the RF part # is 215543 for $4.39 or the tuner can be changed part # 268904 cost $30.39
on another note if you are using a cable box or sat box there is no need to repair the rf hooke the tv up with rca plugs

Conv problems with no pic has sound

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projeciton sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....
  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.



Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the settings menu then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right. And you should be able to get the grid straight.

If you can't move them in all directions or cant move them far enough your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

Note: If you TV has as flash focus or magic focus button only try pressing the button. If it fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a fix


You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses.
This is a a fairly easy DIY job if you are handy and can follow directions. You can get complete repair kits from or click here. They have put together DIY repair kits that include the OEM parts and step by step photo instructions for each repair. If you are not handy or can't follow directions we would suggest calling a shop.
