Rca d52w19 convergence hell

I have been attempting to fix my free d52w19 (someone gave it to me)- the convergence went bad, so I went on ebay and bought a new convergence board for it... I have since installed the convergence board, and it still looks exactly the same! I CAN access convergence in the service menu, (so I am guessing the fuse by the FBT is good) but when i try to use the remote to adjust everything, the crosshairs dont move, however, it DOES switch when i push OK to change colors or 2 to change positions. when i go into AUTOCONVERGENCE, it will go black, fill the screen with red, and then go back to the CONV menu with no change.... Help me Obi-won, your my only hope!

Did you replace the convergence board or the convergence power supply board? usually one color will be a problem with the convergence board and more than one color means the convergence power supply is the problem. Ebay isnt a good place for boards as you never know if the board is good. You can get the convergence or the convergence power supply boards at the following link along with free shipping and tech support.

    thats a real possibility on ebay as most people dont know whats wrong with their sets and the just pull parts out and sell them when in reality it most often convergence Issues and power supply problem make up the majority of all television problems when it comes to rear projections

Having trouble setting convergence on RCA

This is a common problem that is called a convergence failure. You can google "RCA FL231" or goto for a fix

Picture on screen goes out of focus

If attached photos look like what it does it is a convergence problem common in the RCA sets.

Frankly I do not like these sets and if You GOOGLE the model number with "convergence" or "problems" you will a ton of them with that problem.

The real trouble is most sets (even the early RCA) have the convergence circuit almost 100% on one board and use one or two chips for this.

This set has it spread across two or three boards and all the parts are RCA only.

Considering how poorly made that set is I would not if someone gave me one take it or repair it.

The photos will tell you if it is your problem--no two sets look exactly the same but you will know from the pictures if it is your trouble.

RCA D52W19 52 in, as speaker was put beside it & the convergence is out.

Move speaker away, unplug tv for a few hours, restart and do convergence adjust using menus.

RCA D52W19 it kinda looks 3-d i went to the convergence options but it wouldnt let me move the the arrows even though they are way off. and when i tried the auto covergence it went dark a green square...

I woudl not suggest you personally fix this, but can be and easy fix. there are a few fuses around your flyback transformer that blow. there are three of them next to each other. One to all can possibly be blown. just replace these fuses and this should do the trick. will need to do a screen callibration afterwards. If you decide to do the work yourself, MAKE SURE THE TELEVISION is turned OFF! Flybacks can produce and extreme amount of electricity. And experienced tv tech can have you going in about 1/2 hour.

G-D Bless and good luck

Is the tubes going out on my rear projection tv?

If the red, green, and blue colors are separated like a rainbow, then the convergence amps are going out. This set has a common problem of two electrolytic caps going bad. The caps are in the upper left-hand corner of the main board and will have a bulged top if bad.
I would not think the picture tubes are bad, especially all at once.

Convergence nightmare

the convergence board wuld not solve the problem, you need the convergence power supply board for the ITC222 you can get one at the following link with free instructions.

Convergence nightmare

If this is a ITC222 chassis then you need to check the fuses that are near the flyback. I would also unsolder all the pins on the flyback and re-solder them as the factory lead free solder tends to crack and cause issues with the convergence. Re-solder it with common 60/40 solder you can pick up from Radio Shack or other places.
