To converge or not converge, that is the question

Hello and thanks in advance to the ****tube guru's. I have a 9P6034-C103. The television was moved upstairs and replaced by a 62" Sammy DLP. I think the set is now jealous that it has taken a back seat. After the move the set cannot be adjusted to get the right Contrast (Picture)/brightness balance. The darks are way dark and the lights are way light. I tried fiddling with the convergence, truth is the colors are aligned with the crosshairs in both convergence screens. I'd dare say that the picture seems cloudy as in the presence of a haze. At some point during one the adjustment sessions, there have been many many of those, I recall the image further left than it belongs. It's either that or the colors are all congregating on the left edge of the screen. I'm trying to keep my spirits up, although I am very frustrated. I put the set in my bedroom in order to watch tv in bed and this problem occurs. What's even more frustrating is that the extended warranty has expired and the set was fine as long as it was covered. Again any help would be greatly appreciated.

    An update...

    I have narrowed the issue down to a scattered green image. I have been able to improve the image quite a bit via the convergence setting. The problem I still have is that in light scenes (such as outdoors) there are splotches of green throughout the screnn. When in the convergence screen, if I adjust any of the colors, there is a lot of flickering everytime a buttin is pressed. The green letters in the instructions were really blurry and splotchy, now they are readable but still way out of focus. The crosses towards the ends (left & right) are very dark, almost to the point that the color separation is not visible when moving the crosses intentionally. The arrows at the center have a vert bright glow around them.

    I apologize for the poor description of my problem and lack of terminology.

With the remote enter 06-25-97-Menu under there you can clear up the problem. How ever moving these can be tricky as they move with one another and trying to get them straight can be frustrating. There is a template you can order however I don't see one for a 62 inch.

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

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

Yes Saves adjustments.

No Returns to the Advanced Convergence screen allowing

further adjustments.

This is not a bad tube it is a convergence problem. Your convergence amplifiers are malfunctioning, and need to be replaced. If you have a background in electronics, you can remove the back of the TV locate the Convergence ICs (using the schematic or service manual) and the order the parts you will need which are the two convergence ICs and the biasing resistors (you will see these on the schematic). To remove them unsolder the pins, unscrew the screws holding them on the heat sink and remove them carefully, if they stick use a solvent to break down the adhesion of the heat sink paste. Once loose, take them out and then unsolder the biasing resistors and replace them with the ones you ordered along with the ICs.

To install the new ICs put heat sink paste on the back of the ICs and insert the pins into the proper holes in the circuit board. Screw the screws back in securely, and solder the connections back.

After doing this you will need to perform a convergence adjustment, using the cross hair adjustment screen (access this from your TV menu). and the you will need to do an advance adjustment using the crosshatch pattern (also accessed from your TV menu).

Once these are done use you service manual to follow the procedures on locking the adjustments into the TVs memory.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,



You can try to enter the menu and go to advanced setting and adjust the convergence. Push audio to go to advanced convergence and do the multipoint convergence to re-align the colors. If this doesn't solve, you may need to do a hardware repair.. all projections of this type will need a convergence IC repair sometime during their lifetime.

I would have to say that the television is not worth fixing. The problem is most likely to be in the CRT, (cathode ray tube), or in the electronics that fire the tube. with the prices as they are today, you are better off replacing your TV with a used or new one.

Hello scramble5,

This might be a convergence amplifier problem or a problem in the convergence coils. I would suggest that you have a qualified TV technician check this TV out. This problem is usually due to the convergence amplifiers malfunctioning, to replace then the two modules and their biasing resistors must be replaced.

I hope this helps
Thank you,
