RCA model# R52WH74

Our RCA R52WH74 tv from what i have researched, has some sort of convergence problem. the top and bottom of the tv is bowed and the screen appeares in 3-D. on the menu, there is no option for convergence (i was reading some other blogs and some had asked about that), and when you go to the menu or change the channel everything is green/ blue/ and red triple vision. we are trying to fix this ourselves. we got the tv for free and called to get a quote on fixing it but everyone is saying possibly 400 but they dont know till they see it. i think that is ridiculous because it costs 100 dollars just to get them to look at it! i was to try to do this myself but i need some advice as to what the problem definately is, or could be anyhow, so we can order the parts online. we also need to know what tools we will need to fix it. here is a link to a couple pictures that i took that may better help diagnose the problem. sorry about the poor quality but its the best pictures i could get... http://s44.photobucket.com/albums/f15/wmwshannonwmw/
also, if there is a way to fix this myself if you could try to provide the website i can order the part(s) from, and maybe even part #'s?
thanks a million, shannon

SOURCE: convergence problem

Part # STK392-040 X 2 Do not use generic-they won't hold up.
I use Panasonic brand with no recalls------wholesale cost about
30.00 each. Always replace both at same time = more efficient.
After replacement, alignment may be needed = let me know.

Please rate this solution...................T.

I have a Rca Model# R52WH74 the picture looks bowed at the top and bottom and has double vision of objects.


The convergence is out, and the convergence ICs' need change, or it will have to be repair, and it will run around 350, on repairs.

Bad convergence. Possible bad convergence board(s), or bad connections at flyback on power board along with a little brown/orange fuse by the flyback.

Bow tie looking picture with 3d color mis-alignment


you have lost convergence. First thing to check is to see if you are missing the convergence option in the customer setup menu. if you do not have this option then i suggest reading the article in the tips and tricks section entiltled "the fl231 fuse problem" this is a common and sometime easy repair if you do have it then you might need a convergence power board

R52WH74 WONT CONVERGE


first question is the picture also bowed in on top and bottom. if so you may have the common fl231 fuse problem if you do consult the fl231 problem under the tips and tricks section. if you dont then you defently hav a convergence issue. the thing to look for is under setup do you have the autoconvegence option if you dont then you have that problem.

Help with RCA projection TV P46812BL (chasis ptk195AA)


You have probably blown one of the convergence ICs. Effectively the easiest thing to do is replacing the whole convergence board, so that no soldering is involved.

Here you can buy a replacement convergence board, just select your model.

Let me know if you need further help.

You could get into service mode and set the convergence. The only problem is....RCA decided to remove it from the menu for the R52WH74. It only runs 1 time during the first setup, according to RCA Customer Service. This is the 2nd one I've bougt in 6 years. Enough RCA Garbage!
