No menu option is a clue to your problem. No menu option for convergence is due to the Micro not seeing a active convergence module in the unit. This is a post check, when the unit is turned on, and on some units, only done at AC power up.

With that in mind, you need to check your (PW=power) pcb for the conv module. This is easy to find, but on most RCA is located on the plastic panel that is in front of the CRTs. On this model, you should see PW conv PCB on left and Conv PCB on right. Top left corner is a plug with two wires, BP611, (i think) which should have like 300v DC. If you dont have the B+ go to the Primary power supply. More then likely you will have it.

If your 300v is there, order the PW conv module. NOTE: most of these modules are rebuild only and cost about 70.00 to rebuild at PTS. Other wise, you can trouble shoot at board level.

ONLY WORK ON THIS IS YOU HAVE CAN SAFELY USE A METER, AND HAVE SOME ELECTRONICAL SKILLS. NOT FOR BEGGINERS!

RCA HD52W66 Television convergence is screwed up and gone from the set up menu


Projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both. Repair kits with instructions are also avail from www.TvRepairKits.com

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....

  • 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.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some pics of convergence problems.

Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Poor Picture on HD 52'' Projection RCA TV nearly 4 yrs old


Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.

The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded overs.

My HD52W67 has concaved picture


This is a convergence problem and can be repaired relatively easily. If you can solder, you can fix this yourself. First try resoldering the pins on the convergence ICs. If that fails to resolve the problem, replace the ICs. These are large black ICs attached to a heat sink and should be marked STKxxx.

Keep us posted.
