There may be a service mode on this set

I've worked on older models and there is a service mode to get into to adjust convergence

Maybe someone here knows the shortcuts

It seem like a convergence trouble. I tink it is a ITC222 chassis in this set. If it is, you probleme is eeprom for convergence need to be reprogrammed and cause no power on convergence board.

    you need an EEPROM preprogrammed from RCA if you dont have eeprom programmer, iron solder, desolder braid and solder.

    IN the ITC 222 chassis the EEPROM who cause that problem cannot be programme in service menu and i think it as about 15 different version depending serial number.

How do you fix a 52" hdtv ready when its in 3D blurry format


This tv doesn't have 3D capabilities - the image appears blurry because both images are displayed on the same screen at the same time. Just don't use the 3D option from the BluRay player, view the movie normally - 2D.

It is like looking at 3d in all three colors. i


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 projection 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

I have a rca hd52w67 projection tv and the screen looks like it is concaved,has three lines across the top and looks like it is in 3d. What is wrong with it?


The convergnce amplifiers have failed.
This is a common old-age problem.
This requires replacing the convergence amplifiers and possibly resistors and fuses. A repair shop would charge $300-$400 to repair.
If you are tech savy or know someone who is, thae parts will cost around $40.00. Search this site for specific instructions.
Good Day,

Sounds like your convergence amp board has gone out and will need replaced. If you feel like giving it a try yourself this web site has them fairly cheap and they have an 800 line if you need help determining your board number.

3d pictures on hdtv hd52w67


Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.

The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded overs. To get fixed either call in a local TV repair company or goto sites such as Tv Repair Kits to get a repair kit with instructions. Here is there link.

They have put together complete kits for most models that include the parts, step by step photo instructions, repair assistance, etc.

RCA HD52W67 convergence menu missing from menu and has a b,r,g line going through the top of the menu and it looks like every thing is in 3d


that model doesnt use the two STK ICs that most other models use. Try replaceing fusw fl231 . The schematics arent easially available for any RCA TVs unless they are the older projection ones. I would recommend checking with this link and seeing if they have the service manual or perhaps they can get it, if you leave an email with your model number.
