    according to the rca service repair guy he wants to replace the convergence board and/or the power supply board, he said that the older boards you can replace individual parts but not on the newer boards. Is this true my tv is less than 2 years old

  • t_daddy069 Apr 29, 2008

    I have electronics background and soldering skills.

    by chance do you know locaton and part #'s so I can fix it myself?

    Thats usually a problem on the deflection board a fusible link and capacitor usually goes open and that makes the TV act like a direct view and the convergence menu will drop from the menu

    They try to get you to replace the board as most shops wont do component level repairs any more as their labor rates are two high its easier for them to charge 400 for the board and another couple hundred labor. If you need a good deal on a new deflection board go to this site that i am posting and leave them a email telling them your model number and they can get you a new replacement at a decent price with free tech support to help yopu either install the new board or fix your old one. Heres the link.

Hi I have a 52" RCA big screen tv that is only 3 years old however we turned it on today and it is showing some red blue and green lines and the picture is blurry

Hello clara7,

This denotes a convergence problem. I would suggest that first you enter the menu of your TV ad try to do an auto converge on your set, if this does not work I would suspect that the convergence ICs have gone bad and need to be replaced. I would suggest that you have a qualified TV repair technician replace the convergence ICs in this set.I hope this helps,Shuttle83

Lost picture all color lines are at top of screen

Thats what happened your convergence went out, those parts can be found online for as little as 12.50 a piece. If you are good with solder its an easy fix. I found a guy on craigslist in denver who fixed it for 150
good luck

Auto convergence

this point to the special fuse fl231 a small rectangular fusable link. .4 amps if you can get this fuse and you can solder repairs is not to difficult.. you have to resolder connections that cause this fuse to blow

Auto convergence issues

this is an indication of fl231 fusable link has blown.. a brown recatangular special fuse that blows due to poor solder connections on flyback. IF you can get the fuse and can solder this is not a difficult repair... EXtreme caution should be taken with televisions. this set can hold 380 volts even when unpluged.. rember resolder flyback

The service # is hd52w59 and then something like yx1 or etc..... On the model # tag, this is written in very small writing. There is no way to remove the convergence option. Go to menu the set up and there you should find convergence. Choose convergence and run auto converge. If this does not work then there is a failure on the convergence power supply, convergence amp, or the deflection/power bd.

by the convergence menu i would assume you mean in the customer setup menu. although i have seen this at the shop on newer itc222 i guess it can happen with older the convergence it red green and blue.. if not it might be cut off in the service alignment menu...if that is true. how did it get cut off. has the set been worked on?

just found the problem fuse that causes this to happen. The set I have also was not converging, and the auto convergences option was also gone. The small fuse labeled fl231 which is right next to the big plastic piece with the large red wire coming from it in the left corner of the circuit board closest to the back. It is the middle of the 3 small fuses that are smaller than a Chiclets gum. I was able to pull up the circuit board and jump the fuse with some alligator clips and the set looked great again. Every one says watch out for the unit with that red wire SO WATCH OUT!

damortch check out I think I found them on there gonna call them tomorrow to see if I can get mine there.
