SOURCE: RCA R52WH77 convergence missing from menu

THis is very common on these sets. there is a special fuse thats cause this.. kinda hard to get rca part number 259213.. .4 amp. the reason this blows is there is bad solder connections on the flyback. so when you replace this fuse you have to resolder these connections. so if you know how to solder and can find this special fuse. it is a fast and easy repair

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

How do you fix the convergence on a 2003 42 inch big screen tv?

In the menu on the tv setup you should find a test pattern that can be displayed for converging. In that menu there may be an auto converge which is much easier. If not, with the patter up you will have to manually converge the individual guns in the tv with the back off. There are adjustment knobs or screws for focusing the guns.

I have a PT-47WX53 that has one vertical bar down the middle of the screen. Barely visible in a purple hue and about 3-4 inches wide. I'm looking for some suggestions. Thanks

A few simple things you may try. Under your menu on the tv look for convergence or it also may be under setup. Run the convergence setup and follow the on screen instructions. If the tv fails to converge while in setup you may need to replace some things however the parts are very very cheap. If your convergence setup works and you still have a bad picture, and or both, meaning the tv's convergence wont align then you may need 1 or 2 IC's and maybe need to change your coolant in the tv's RGB lens...all can be done with little experience and for under 50 bucks. I can give more detail if needed.

I somehow delted the icon for my internet browser

Hi. To get your browser icon back, (probably it's been hidden) you only need to go to your main menu, press the menu button again, and you should see the "Show All" option, select it and now you'll see the hidden icons in grey color. When you come over the hidden icons and press menu button, you can select to hide or show them. And when you do the "Show All" steps again and select it again, this time you'll hide your icons selected as hidden. Hope this helps.

Hello,i have just bought the D40 kit,and i,m very pleased with so far.the problem i have is trying to keep the menu screen on for only stays on for about 8 do i get it to stay on...

If you haven't already done so, go to the Setup menu (the wrench). Under CSM/Setup Menu, select Full.

Now go to the Custom Settings menu (the pencil). Find Auto off Timers. Long will display image review for twenty seconds. Custom will let you set it for as long as ten minutes.

This is all under "Menu Guide" in the D40 manual.
