My mom has a RCA HD61W66 and the picture was showing red, blue and green "lines and shadows" as if the picture was warped. It has now stopped showing a picture at all but the power is working....


The flyback transformer has solder cracks around the pins and most likely blown the FL231 Micro fuse to the right of the flyback.I would inspect the flybacks solder. The FL231 and the CL230 and DL231 should also be replaced ( near the flyback) You can get the ITC222 Convergence option missing repair kit from www.tvrepairworld.com under the RCA repair kits. The kit contains the parts and the CD with repair instructions

Convergency has gone out of sync, went to try to realign but the convergeny setting was not listed in the tools menu.


Thats usually caused by a blown FL231 Fuse and a blown DL231 diode that blow when the flyback transformer develops solder cracks around the pins. The repair is to first resolder the flyback then replace the FL231 fuse and DL231 diode. You can get the RCA / GE convergence option missing repair kit which has the parts and repair instructions from www.tvrepairworld.com

Rca bday61w66 convergence board removal


Different possibilities:
1. Bad hv circuit (flyback)
2. Bad connections on flyback & the little fuse next to it
3. Bad fuse near tuner
4. Bad picture tube
This tv is known to have any of these problems.

I believe the solution is: number 2.
I have had a few of these with burned up convergence boards, but it is rare. If you replace one, you must replace both if it has 2.
Check for rings around the flyback solder joints and the little brown fuse next to the flyback (3 are in a line).
Good Luck!

The fl231 fuse blew 3 days after i replaced it so problem is obviously steming from somewhere else. I keep seeing solder joints that need to be resoldered, can you elaborate.


The reason the fuse keeps blowing is because of bad solder joints on the flyback transformer,resolder all flyback cnnections and you should be good to go.

My convergence keep going out, I replaced the convergence twice. I have a rca hd52w59 modle


When you say replaced the convergence twice, are you refering to the convergence boards or the FL231 fuse? If its the FL231 fuse unless you replaced the DL231 and CL230 plus reflowed the solder on the flyback it will continue to keep blowing untill the 3 parts are replaced together and the flyback gets resoldered. If you replaced the convergence boards then try resoldering the flyback.

I have an rca hd61w66 and the autoconvergence is not working. Is there anything that I can do or is there something that maybe I'm not doing?


If the convergence is way out fl231 is probably open (its a .4 amp fuse) the fuse goes bad because of the bad solder connections on the flyback. solder flyback connections and replace the fuse. the convergence should be back to normal.

Convergence nightmare


If this is a ITC222 chassis then you need to check the fuses that are near the flyback. I would also unsolder all the pins on the flyback and re-solder them as the factory lead free solder tends to crack and cause issues with the convergence. Re-solder it with common 60/40 solder you can pick up from Radio Shack or other places.
