Question about RCA D52W19 52" Rear Projection Television

4 Answers

Convergence nightmare 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!

    Well, I re-soldered the flyback, and all fuses have continuity - still no change. any other ideas?? By the way, thanks for the quick reply!

    also, a tidbit i left out before, the screen is also "sucked in" twords the middle on the top and bottom.. maybe this detail will shed light on a different answer?

    thank you!!

    Im going nuts we have a 51 " or 52" sorry i forgot which it is rca rear projection thats only 2 years old and last year we turned it on and the colors are all out of wack. It looks like a 3d movie without glasses. The 3 color lines are totally off. I remember when we first bought it we had to adjust the colors a bit with the remote but that section isnt on there anymore. We waited so long cuz warrenty ran out and a week later it went bad. Called repair guy today he said about $400, thats nuts. I can repair it myself if someone could please tell me what it is and where it goes. Thanks so much, I gotta fix it to make hubby happy again he misses his big tv.

    you look up a convergence repair kit.. comes with circuit board that has the parts on it that are not working on your t.v. and all the little replacement resistors and instructions how to fix it.. I am looking for one for my model t.v. locating that part seems to be WHY you see all the big screens on the curb.. like trash... if you cant get part to fix it then your hating it.. I am going to start surfing for each PART.. take out my circuit board and look at PART NUMBERS on EACH COMPONENT.. the big convergence Integrated Circuits may be easier to surf for with their part numbers instead of using t.v. model number and searching for whole convergence repair kit..

You will need to replace FL231 and resolder the joints of the flyback. Trust me, I have done this repair multiple times. To check the fuse, you will need to lift one leg up and out. If you pop the cover of the fuse off, the link may still look "ok" but will be broken. A temporary way to test it is to jumper the leads of the fuse with a jumper wire or alligator clips.

I had the same problem, I resoldered the fyback (LL008) and changed the fuse (FL231) had my voltage back, but still no convergence. I read in the service manual that disconnecting BW001 BW002 on the Converagence Amplifier board may remove the load on the Convergence Power Supply. I unpluged the TV did remove it and turned the TV on, let it boot up and run for two minutes or more, then shut it down, waited a few minutes. Unpluged TV and I pluged back in BW001 and BW002 connector back in and turned the TV back on and it was back. Some adjustment and had had a great picture back. If this done do it your out of luck, the Convergence Power Supply and Convergence Amplifer Boards are no longer avialable. Make sure that all the flyback leads are resoldered real good.

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.

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.

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.

If you paid that much for the same repair, man I am sorry. A repair like this should cost no more then a few hundred bucks. OK how much solid state printed circuit board repair experience do you have? If none, NO you should not attempt this repair. If you know someone who does, Great. The convergence amp. IC's need to be replaced. there are two of them. You will need to locate them, order the right ones, as all convergence, Good Luck IC's are not alike, maybe that's why you set went bad again, as cheap or aftermarket type ICs will do this also. Goo luck, If you need more assistance with this, ands can find someone to assist you, or if you can do it yourself, please do not hesitate to get back with me.

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

NO this is a condition known as convergence problems. first question in menu then go to setup and see if the option of convergence is in the menu. is the picture bowed in from the top and bottom. do you have the option of autoconvergence. does it work and how far does it get. there is a common problem with these sets. and may be a simple fix if you can solder a part. so let me know and we will continue to troubleshoot.
