The convergence board could have recived damage when it was shipped, or there could be a bad connection or plug came loose while transporting, or the convergence IC's may need to be replaced. All these things ,unless your a trained tech with soldering experience, will need to be checked out. Good Luck

How do you access the convergence calibration menu on a RCA P52926 Rear Projection TV


Hello
To access the convergence calibration:

Press the MENU button on the remote.

2. Press 3 to select the Screen option.

3. Press 4 to select the Adjust Projection TV option.

4. Press 4 to select the Advanced Convergence option (the
Advanced Convergence screen appears).

The green pattern is fixed. The red and blue patterns are adjusted to

the green pattern. The Red Convergence appears first by default.

5. Colored cross-hairs show the current adjustment position on the

grid. To move the cross-hairs to a different position, use the

CH+/- buttons on the remote to move the cross-hair highlight up

and down, and the VOL+/- buttons to move it right and left.

6. Use the arrow buttons to adjust the red pattern. Each press of

the arrow button makes a slight adjustment from the center of

the cross-hairs - you can press and hold the desired arrow

button to make a faster adjustment, and then make fine

adjustments with single presses of the arrow button.

7. Press the INFO button to switch to Blue convergence and follow

the steps above to adjust the blue pattern.

8. Press OK to exit. You will be asked if you want to save the
adjustments

Yes Saves adjustments.

No Returns to the Advanced Convergence screen allowing

further adjustments.
Clear Exits screen without making any changes

Note: Before you use the advanced convergence feature, you must
complete the previous steps to align the tubes

Hi there,

You can adjust brightness by following these simple steps:
1) Press the MENU/SELECT button on the remote to show the on screen menu.
2) Press the CURSOR RING RIGHT to enter the PICTURE sub menu.
3) Press the CURSOR RING DOWN repeatedly until the EYE FIDELITY control is highlighted.
4) Press the CURSOR RING RIGHT or LEFT until you select the option you want, either PROGRESSIVE or INTERLACED.
5) Press the STATUS/EXIT button to turn the menu off.

Helpful Hint
- The Eye Fidelity control is not available for use with AV4 and AV5.
- You may want to use the interlaced option to enhance programs containing a lot of motion.

Thank you for using FixYa! Have a nice day and please remember to rate this solution.

Warm regards,

Convergence


Have you tried to adjust the convergence in service mode yet?
If not here are the steps.
1) Turn the TV off with the System off (under flap of remote)
2) Press: Display, 5, Volume+, then Power. If successful, service text will appear on the screen.
3) Use 2 & 5 - to select the PJE category. Be careful, like your computer, you don't want to be adjusting the wrong screen.
4) Press 9 - to get to the convergence adjusting.
5) Press 6 several times to get the convergence screen of choice. (I like the grid)
6) Use the remotes arrow keys (joystick), move the brackets around until you have found the area to adjust. Press the center of the joystick to change the bracket from white to a color. Use the joystick to adjust the color(Push it sideways or up and down and hold). Press 3 to change color to adjust(red, green or blue). When done, press center of joystick again, this will turn it back to white.
Note: Try to keep the grid even and square.
7) Repeat step 6 for all parts of the screen that need it.
8) Once done, you need to save your settings. Press: Mute,Enter. Then on the T.V. press "Flash Focus" (it will set it self)
9) Turn off Power.

I cant get the color right. its to red??? any help? i did notice with the back cover off, there are 6 adjustment screws


yes! those are the screen and focus adjustments. 3 for screen, 3 for focus. try this. go in menu....turn down color, brightness, contrast all they way down. you should then have no picture, but in your case a little red. then go to back of tv and turn those 3 screen adjustments all the way down. slowly turn the screens back up until you get barely a picture. because remember, your brightness and contrast is all the way down. the picture should be dim but seeable and with red, green, blue adjustments, make it a black and white picture. when balanced..... turn up color , brightness, contrast in menu. enjoy!

Pincusion/Convergence Problem


You can find some presets on the display section of the motherboard. You try adjust to fine tune the picture.

Keep a mirror in front of the TV and try adjust the presets slowly with the help of a properly insulated screw driver.

Caution TV venerates very high voltages.

I was just given this t.v because friends couldn't figure out what is wrong with itl. The colors don't line up right,looks kinda blurry depending on the lighting of the program being watched. How do i fix...


According to the manual:
1) go to the "TV Main Menu"
2) Select "Screen"
3) Select Adjust Projection TV (obviously only if a projection TV).
This then allows you to adjust the TV's 3-colors. Selecting GREEN CENTERING brings up a control panel that lets you center the green projection tube on the screen. Selecting RED CONVERGENCE or BLUE CONVERGENCE lets you align the Red & Blue projector tubes. Centre the green projector tube 1st. Then adjust the red & blue until the test pattern on the TV screen appers white.
Good Luck!

I know that I need a convergence power supply board.


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 projeciton 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.

e87380c.jpg
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

69189a5.pngCONVERGENCE SOLUTION

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses.
This is a a fairly easy DIY job if you are handy and can follow directions. You can get complete repair kits from TvRepairKits.com or click here. They have put together DIY repair kits that include the OEM parts and step by step photo instructions for each repair. If you are not handy or can't follow directions we would suggest calling a shop.

Menu (SCREEN) #4 Adjusting projection is gone


you have a convergence problem and this can only be serviced by a tech with the know how to service the rca projections sets as there are many alignments in this set and some are manual driven but mosrt are on screen driven. You need the know how to get into the service mode. Sorry my friend but my recomendations would be to send this set out for service.
