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 fix69189a5.pngCONVERGENCE SOLUTION

Picture curves in @ top and bottom and color convergence is off. was fine yesterday.


There are bad solder connections on the flyback transformer and there is a small fuse open. Pretty hard to do yourself but a professional can do this easily.

Rca projection tv


this is a indication of convergence problem. the curved picture indicates total or a complete loss of convergence power. I first recomend you read the artilce in tips in tricks section. the fl231 problem it might be this if you do not have the convergence options in setup of customer menu. if not it might be a convergence power board issue

Did you use the Automatica Convergence to try and straighten it out? If that does not help, you can manually adjust the convergence.
