    Yes, I think it is convergence... BUT ... there is not "convergence" choice on the SET-UP menus... how do you reset the convergence on this TV???

  • mimibeth May 15, 2008

    what is wrong with these tv's??? I have just had the same thing happen today! I don't understand why you cannot access the convergence menu on it, when it does have an auto convergence choice (normally) on the menu options. Does anyone know the approx cost of getting something like this fixed??? Or am I better to get a new T.V.? I have really like my RCA, I have had it for almost 2 years and have not had any problems with it until now.

Is this a projection set? If so you simply need to set the convergence. Otherwise I would try to return it to the retailer and exchange for different manufacturer.

On our rca hdtv model # R52WH77.. the tv is having like a 3d look on it and has a bow in the picture.. we bought the convergance repair kit from tvrepairworld.com and replaced the 2 parts it gives us.. ...


have you reset the convergence parameters after installing the kit to fix the option? Usually you will need to reset the defaults to get the outer edges back in alignment.

Go to Menu then setup,If you do not see Convergence on the menu then problem is in the Deflection Board,Located on the bottom Left hand side.
Over on the Right hand side of the FBT flyback transfomer is 3 Fuses in a Roll FL231
they will be small rectrangler looking caps but are Fuses it will be the one in the Middle 0.06amps.
Mats Electronics 1-800-628-1118 you can take a pair of needle nose plyers and pull Top OFF of Fuses. You will also need to resolder all the pinns on the FBT.

RCA TV MODEL R52WM24


Projection sets have two very common problems outlined below.

The first common problem is convergence

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. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. The TV can also shut down when the convergence starts to fail.

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,Mitsubishi,Zenith, RCA and others.


You can more info and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from TV Repair Kits using the link at the end of this article.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped or bowed
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture
