Hello divine tagle,

On your TVs menu you should have a convergence adjustment section. Find this and given the age of your TV it should allow you to adjust what is called dynamic convergence which is the center of the screen and outward. It will do so by having you adjust the blue crosshair and the red crosshair until the completly overlap. The it will have you save the setting and this for the most part is how you can set the convergence on your TV set. These are just rule of thumb adjustment, you can find better detailed instructions in your users guide, (which is you do not have it can be found on-line, or at the manufactures site).

I hope this helps

Thank you,

Rca projection tv mod:P52937SG

It seems like a convergence fault. Either the convergece cirlcuit, or the convergence settings have the fault To make it sure, try to adjust convergence adjustment. You have to enter its service mode option to do this. Check this link and pull up older posts. One among them have details about how to adjust convergence for projection television. If no effect can be seen during convergence adjust, make sure that the convergence board have the fault. You have to check further more into.

How to fix the convergence on a toshiba TP55D81 tv using the remote control

The convergence is adjusted with the remote by entering a tech menu and adjusting there====if convergence is really bad adjustments are not going to fix it.

The set should have in customer menu a limited convergence adjustment with up to nine points where you can adjust---if it will not adjust there in some way----convergence circuit needs repair.

How do i make all the colors sync up to get rid of yellow and blue shadowing

Go into the customer menu with the remote and select convergence; if red or blue will not adjust in some direction you have a convergence circuit problem----depending on actual model number set uses two convergence chips--they would have to be replaced.

If the convergence does adjust in the customer menu but not good enough I can give you the sequence to get into the tech menu to fine adjust-remember if if will not adjust in the customer mode, it will not adjust in the tech mode either.

See attached photo of Philips convergence problem.

Red convergence will not adjust

You need to have your convergence amplifers changed. May be some bad resistors as well. Should be no problem for professional

My screen has a wave in it/red convergence won't adjust

You have convergence output failure. The output ICs will need to be replaced and possibly a small component like a resistor or two as well. Expect to pay a service company $350-$450 to resolve this.

Adjust Convergence on Zenith B27A11Z

You don't adjust convergence through a service mode on one of these sets. With a conventional CRT, convergence is done by physically adjusting the convergence rings on the neck of the tube, and the position of the deflection yoke near the bell. You would also need a crosshatch generator to provide the required test pattern for adjustment.

Your convergence has failed and needs to be repaired. Once quick test is to goto your convergence menu and see if you can adjust red and blue. If not its has failed and needs to be fixed. You can call in a repair shop or you can get the parts and instructions from and do the repair yourself. Its a fairly easy DIY fix.

Convergence off

The convergence board is bad. If the convergence board were still good, then the convergence menu would allow you to adjust the crosshairs.
