RCA hd52w67 Convergence won't complete

OK I had a focus problem with the POS TV about a year ago. When the TV got back from the shop the auto convergence would start but would not finish. I called the repair shop he told me to disconnect everything unplug the TV and wait a few hours and then plug the tv and run Auto Convergence before I hooked up cable video games etc... This seemed to work fine. I never paid it much attention after that because the TV stayed converged. I moved the TV last weekend ever since the convergence is out of whack and of course the convergence process won't complete. What can this be? Is there a way to do a hard reset on this TV. RCA aint what they used to be. Thanks in advance

It is like looking at 3d in all three colors. i


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 photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

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

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right. And you should be able to get the grid straight.

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

Note: If you TV has as flash focus or magic focus button only try pressing the button. If it fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a fix

Have the HD52w67 rca. Have a 3d effect. know we have to adjust the lamps. we go to menu but we have no auto convergence. What can we do now?


Is there a manual convergence setting in the menu? if so try to adjust the level 1, 2, and 3 settings. If not try to clean the lenses with qtips and alchohol.

I just got my HD52W59 back from the shop a few weeks ago and they got the three colors around everything taken care of but a friend adjusted it again and the middle of the screen is OK, but the left and...


It needs a full service mode convergence set up and possibly a focus adjustment. Don;t let friends touch your tv unless they are somewhat qualified.. EVER!!!!

Picture color is out of focus


Hello LD2448,
I gave this advice before:
It sounds like you have a convergence amplifier problem. There are many articles on the Internet on how to do this type of repair yourself, but what these articles fail to mention is that if done wrong the chances are your TV will be damaged even more. So I would suggest that if you do not know electronics, for you to take the TV to a repair shop or have a TV technician come to your house to check and recommend a repair strategy for your TV set.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Convergence


Okay, usually the parts that go bad to make the convergence option drop from the menu are the following. Fusible Link (FL1231) Diode (DP1231) and capacitor ( C1230) the numbers in parenthesis are the actual component locations on the board. These items fail causing the set to think its a direct view set instead of a projection unit.

I cannot adjust my convergence


This is a very common problem with the ITC222 chassis. If you cannot access the Convergence Menu (either in Customer or Service Menu), the FL231 fusible link is the culprit. More than likely that is blown, which will cause the Convergence Menu to disappear, "bowing" picture, convergence to be off, and will run as  "tube CRT" mode. 
It is also important to check the Flyback transformer and the solder connections below it. If you have a bad connection (i.e. cracked solder), FL231 will blow again and experience the same problems.
