Question about RCA HD56W66 56" HDTV

2 Answers

Convergence slipping. I love my tv, but it has periods where the red convergence slips. Sometimes it corrects itself (or will respond to autoconvergence), but others its stays red shifted to the left or right and no amount of autoconvergence arguing will correct the problem... for days. Then it stops acting up for a few weeks until the problem rears its ugly head. Any thoughts?

Hi. My Sony Videoscope XBR's Convergence Allignment


I happen to share this same problem. The alignment of the gridlines on the standard convergence panel are completely abnormal, and if I attempt to auto-adjust the TV, it flashes different colors on the sides of the screen , and then turns off the convergence settings.

My convergence is off I believe the antenna from the Wii game through it off now my t.v. shows a 3d picture. I opened the back and adjusted the red lense but the convergence is still off it doesn't show 3d...


keep adjusting the tv until the tv shop has to charge you twice as much for having to correct all your adjustments and for repairing the convergence board why would you adjust something that is factory set? did you think the lens slipped out place?

Cannot adjust red multi point


Symptom:
Unit appears to have poor convergence due to:
1. cross hatch appears tilted
2. one color (or more) being larger than the others.

Cause:
The yoke or yokes may have:
(1) rotated slightly or
(2) slipped down during transport.

Resolution:
Loosen a yoke and lower to inspect the tape. If black tape is present remove it from under all yokes (white tape or no tape is OK). Slide yoke or yokes up tight against the CRT and tighten to prevent slipping or rotation. Precede with
alignments and or convergence as necessary.

Sony TV losing focus


Your TV most likely a convergence failure. ( common problem )

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.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses. Its a fairly easy DIY job or you can call in a pro. If you want to do the repair yourself check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, email/phone support, etc.

Convergence WAY off...


You problem is the convergence IC's. This is much less expensive to fix than a red crt. Sometimes it is bad connections. Can you tap on the side of the tvand make the red correct itself?. If not, have the convergence IC's replaced and the problem will be solved.

Toshiba TP50G50 Theaterview picture is double with red color only


Your alignment is off. Go to the set up menu then convergence. hit right and you will be in the convergence menu. select the color that is not in alignment. The green line does not move. if blue and green are lined up the line will be cyan. if red and green are lined up the line will be yellow. when all three are lined up the color will be light. Best of luck!

Need the correct convergence IC number for my Phillips Phillips Magnavox rear projection tv P6034C. I am getting the double picture syndrome . It also appears as if I cannot adjust the red convergence...


Thats not the full model number should be something like 43P6034C or etc. Please respond to this same post and I will let you know the correct Ics and resistors because phillips / magnavox will always burn at least 2 often 4 of the convergence resistors as well.
