I have an RCA hd52w67 rear projection hdtv. The ATSC signal looks perfect, but any analog connection (composite, s-video, component, and ntsc) has awful convergence, its bowed at the top and bottom. Auto convergence doesnt help, and the manual convergence in the menu only alligns the center.
Is there a way to manually converge this set's bow/sketh/skew etc.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of.(from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones)

Your TV most likely has a convergence failure. You can get parts and instructions from www.tvrepairkits.com
Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem
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.
HDTV indicates the number of lines that are shown by the TV. (HD means that at least 720 lines can be displayed in a given picture.) To receive OTA signals, you need an ATSC tuner (digital) of sufficient power (with a clear path to the transmitter) these days. The RCA D52W20 was released in 2002 and only has an NTSC (analog tuner). You will need a digital-to-analog converter to receive OTA TV (unless any low power analog stations remain in your area).
Please note that the basic digital-to-analog converters that were available with the government coupon back in 2009 were SD (480i lines of pixels used) units. HD d-t-a converters exist but are more expensive.
I hope this helps.
Cindy Wells (the phrase "digital antenna" is meaningless; check with tvfool.com or antennaweb.org for the direction of local transmitters. TVfool.com will give more information on the type of antenna (indoor, outdoor, amplifier) that you will need to receive channels in your area. Antennaweb assumes an external antenna but is very conservative in the stations that it will indicate that you can receive. Antennas are given a color rating based on how far away the transmitter can be to get a watchable signal. Since digital signals are either enough for the tuner to interpret or you get a "no signal" message, you often need a stronger signal than was needed to receive a watchable analog channel.)
check that board where you replace the fuse on the back look very close at the transformer the big black one and check the soldering it is cracked resolder it and you should be ready to go.. just look very close they are smalllllll cracks need good light.. thats what i had on mine and works good..
I'm having the same problem with my RCA HD52W67 rear projection TV and I've notice this problem is listed with my other owners of this product. I have no experience with fixing electronics. Sould I try this myself or take it to an expert? Has anyone fixed this problem? What is an estimated cost involved, if I take my set to an expert? Any advice with the HD52W67 is great appreciated.
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.
RCA have choices for different methods of CC in user CC menu. Labelled T1, T2, etc. . Different selections are for different types of close caption. Tune to a signal (on your other TV) that has closed caption working.
Tune your RCA to the same signal. Change the T1,T2, etc settings until the closed caption for your signal appears.
If this doesn't work, try connecting analog video or VHF channel 3 (or other specified channel) to the TV. check CC. When TV stations, sat channels, sat receivers, cable boxes etc, convert analog video signals to HD, problems can result. Some equipment causes RCA TVs to do unexpected things with sound and closed caption.
If you use RF or video output, old analog video may look better on CH3 or video than on HD input and the CC will work more consistently. Watch HD signals on HD input, Analog signals on Video in or through the TV tuner . Many HD channels and programs are converted analog video and look poor on TV HD inputs.
convergence for the rca itc222 is set individually for digital and analog tuner. Most of time the set will have to be converge in service mode. as a tech i would not recommend getting intoservice mode. but the key is the the convergence has to be set indiviadually for each tuner. You could try autoconverging in digital or even manualy converging
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. http://servicemanuals.vstore.ca/
