SOURCE: RCA CONVERGENT PROBLOM

The convergence problem is likely to be in the convergence power supply which is located above and between the two boards which lie flat inside the chassis. The power supply has a chip on it which is a common problem (If it is not the transistor type then change the whole board.) part number on the chip where the metal heat sink is located. Part number may be STK 730-010 or STK 730-130 both number will work and must be unsoldered and new soldered in.

SOURCE: i have a 52 inch

you can go into the menu and manually adjust the convergence it will look better most likely but a television should always be converged by a professional when first bought any way because they can do things we at home cant. i have mine done by a professional once a year and do it myself once a month to maintain the best possible picture. good luck

I have an RCA P52830BL chassis PTK195BB that worked for two days then started sparking. I have had it unplugged. How can I fix it? it had a beautiful picture and sound quality.


chances are it is the flyback transformer or they are also famous for the HV splitter to have issues to. That chassis had about 20 different versions but you can get parts and free technical assistance from www.tvrepairworld.com they have alot of experience with that chassis design

Same problem as above, picture bowed top and bottom, convergence


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

3d image/sinking effect


This is a convergence problem. Ther are either bad connections at the convergence ICs or the ICs are defective. If you can solder, you can repair this yourself. Try resoldering the pins on the ICs first. If that fails to resolve the problem, replace the ICs. These ICs are large, black and attached to a heat sink. They should be marked STKxxx. Figure on $20 for each one. There will be 2 of them.
Keep us posted.

CONVERGENCE OUTPUT I.C.


Nextag and eBay are turning up nothing for this model. In comparison to other manufacturer's prices, the quoted price is not "unreasonable." Projection TV repairs are certainly not cheap. Sorry.

RCA P52830BL picture is bowed and colors separated.


There is a convergence printed circuit board that likely has a few bad components. If you decide to get it repaired, the technican will probably check for fluid leaks from the picture tubes coolant area which has given problems on this model also. If the picture quality leaves a bit to be desired, it may be a wise move to upgrade to HDTV. A Sony KDS-55A20 model has a great picture and should be less than $2300. I just saw one at a local Sams Club store.
