Is the convergence adjustment option still listed on the on screen menu or has it disappeared? Thats a very easy chassis to repair so let me know if the option has disappeared or not and I can asssist you with how to fix it.

Your symptom sounds like a damaged convergence IC.


While it is not a very hard repair, this repair can be a bit tricky. If you have a 45W soldering iron, solder, solder wick, and heat sink compound you can repair it yourself.

When you remove the old IC's, please be sure to remove all of the old heat sink compound, as it can act as an insulation for the new IC's and cause them to overheat. I usually clean the heat sinks with alcohol and a small rag.

There are two and large IC’s that control the convergence in a big screen set. Some of the newer sets only have one. If you only have one, it is right in the middle of the set on the center circuit board2.gif. They are secured to a very large aluminum heat sink. They will have a part number stamped on them that will start with an STKXXX-XXX, like STK392-110, and they are located on the signal board (on the left as you look into the back of the set).

Along with the convergence IC’s there will also be some associated components that will need to be replaced as well. There are some resistors that are part of the convergence circuit that will be open and need to be replaced. Most likely these will appear charred in the center. If you have an Ohm Meter or a DVM, check all the resistors that are close to the IC’s and you should be looking for either ones that have opened or have changed values.
There are also two resistors on the front of the board located in the middle that are fusible link resistors, these should be checked for opens and replaced if they are found so.

If one of the convergence IC’s are found to be bad, I would replace them both, if one has gone bad the other may go soon. I usually order my parts from Andrews Electronics in California, they will have the OEM components that you will need.
Their site is http://www.andrewselectronics.com/welcome.aspx
And their phone number is a 24-Hour Order Desk: (800) 274-4666
I recommend the phone order so you can talk to the person about the different types of IC’s that are available.

I would also advise that the convergence IC’s be OEM or better, just because they are cheap does not mean that they are a good deal. I have seen the cheap IC’s fail after a short time, even though they look exactly like the OEM IC’s. I think that the bottom line is that you will get what you pay for when it comes to the parts.

You can also try http://www.tvrepairkits.com/ , I have not tried them yet, but they do carry OEM or better parts.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.
If you need further assistance please comment to this post and I will try to help you further.

I'm having double images with my RCA 32 inch lcd flat screen tv


You could try to go into the settings and use the "Image Cleaner" option. That's what we do with our tv. But i'm not sure if it will work with yours... (:

Double image


Your set uses the 195 series chassis, which has separate components for each of the 6 convergence channels and a separate power supply for the convergence circuits. If all 3 colors have drastically shifted, especially around the edges, then chances are your convergence power supply has stopped working. This is usually caused by the failure of the STK730-010 switching IC. If one of the colors has dramatically shifted by itself then something has stopped working on the convergence board. Sometimes I see CRT coolant leaking onto the convergence board as the cause. In either case this is something that should be repaired and realigned by someone experienced with RCA projection TV convergence circuits.

My RCA Model number HD52W59 has color distortion and double image and sunk picture in the middle. Is there any way of fixing this problem. This tv is a projection TV


Yes.The tv have a problems known as a convergence problems,it dead.The tv colors lines R,G,B mis alignment,have colors shadows pictures or 3D pictures look alike.The tv convergence board have 2 STK convergence ICS and some or all it resistors are dead.These parts on the tv convergence board,must be change to solved the tv picture convergence problems.The shop,will cost u like $300-350 for parts and labors.

Double images on screen


IT SOUNDS LIKE A PINCUSHION PROBLEM. IN MOST CASES IT IS DUE TO CAPACITORS GOING BAD ON THE BOARD. OTHER TIMES SOME TV'S HAVE LARGE MICROCHIPS THAT RUN THE PINCUSHION AND COLOR SYNC. HOPE THAT HELPS.
