My 6 year old rca 52" just began having a convergence problem. The screen will begin "ghosting" in all 3 colors. When I try to adjust using the remote, it shuts the tv off. when it comes back an its ok 50% of the time. The other 50% its not, and the adjust projection option is gone from the menu. I think it may be some kind of power problem. Any help would be appreciated

Re: rca 52' projection convergence problem
Its a good possibility that your convergence problem could for now be cold solder connections on the driver ICs on the convergence board. The longer you use it the more of a problem its going to surge those ICs till they go bad and maybe cause other componet falure as well. If your not a technician i would have this set serviced asap before it becomes a major repair Good Luck

convergence issue. Press menu and then scroll down to the setup option enter setup and scroll to Autoconvergence and activate the auto convergence feature that will realign the convergence . If that doesnt correct the issue you will need a Convergence power board, If the auto convergence feature is missing from the setup menu then you need the convergence option missing repair kit. Both the board and the repair kit are available from www.tvrepairworld.com
This denotes a convergence problem. I would suggest that first you enter the menu of your TV ad try to do an auto converge on your set, if this does not work I would suspect that the convergence ICs have gone bad and need to be replaced. I would suggest that you have a qualified TV repair technician replace the convergence ICs in this set.I hope this helps,Shuttle83http://www.electron-age-technologies-llc.com
Go to menu then setup look for convergence if it is missing on menu then you have a open FUSE/ FL231, But if you have convergence on menu then go into service mode turnTV off then PRESS and hold at same time ch- and vol- wait for set to come on then release TV should now be in Factory settings.
Go to menu ,now go to setup see if convergence is on menu if not then fuse FL231 is opened 0.6 amps it is located on right side of flyback transfomer the fuse in the middle they look like small square capacitors brown there is 3 in a roll.
ok go into setup menu.... go to convergence.. try to adjust convergence .. does the crosshair move up and down side to side... if not then you might hqve q poblem with convergence power supply if they move then u might have s setup issue
