Question about RCA HD52W59 HDTV Projection Television

1 Answer

Top of screen is converged corretly bottom of screen isn't

I have a problem with my screen. It just happened after I got a power serge. I tried sdjusting the convergence in the menu screen but it just fixes the middle and top of the screen not the bottom. Also the auto converge doesn't work. It just shows one green square and then just stops and goes back to the menu screen. Is there anyway I could fix this myself? Its been a year and 3 months and I would probably be charged alot to get this fixed I am thinking. Any suggestion would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I have another question. I did fix my own problem by going into the service menu. But now everytime I turn on the tv. It shows the welcome screen. I tried turning it off in the service menu but it still doesn't help. Any suggestions? Thanks.

The "power surge" you got, was it because of an electrical storm or was it it because a power transformer blew in the neighborhood? I mentioned this only because if it occured due to a power company problem, I'd file a claim with them. They may just pay for your repair. It's worth looking into. Check with a neighbor, they may have had problems too.

Hitachi 60 inch projection has a blue ring overlapping the screen and colors are off on it any idea how to fix?


Have you checked the convergence? Typically when this happens, the TV has been moved, or bumped hard, and things have gotten out of alignment. Occasionally, it'll happen because of a power outage or flicker.

Convergence should be found in the setup or video menu.

SCREEN IS HIGHLIGHTED RED, ALL WORDS READ IN RED AND THE PICTURE IS BLURRY ON PHILIPS MAGNAVOX 9P5034C101


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 projection 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.

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.
