Question about RCA D52W20 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

D52W20B says HDTV/Monitor on the front.

How do I get WindowsXP to recognize my RCA D52W20, I have followed all of the instructions in WindowsXP and downloaded more advanced graphics drivers and console from ATI. This is for my Laptop and has a ATI Radeon Xpress 200 Series. I put a DVI cable from the back of my TV and have a DVI to VGA adapter connecting to the IGP on my motherboard. What am I, or am I not doing.

    I tried to enable the second monitor and it still won't recognize it, what else?

  • Jdodson1980 Oct 03, 2008

    Cables are brand new, no bent pins and no cuts-frays-lacerations. I am running ATI Catalyst Control Center and I have to for recognition, Windows will not recognize it by itself. I tried going on RCA and Compaq's websites and cannot locate the proper driver through them.....If you know or have the necessary driver, please by all means let me know.

    As I stated only if I force it in the ATI Catalyst Control Center, Windows will not recognize it by itself.

Go into your display properties and enable the second monitor.

    make sure the tv is on the correct input when you are enabling the second monitor, also make sure your cables are in good condition and have no bent pins or other problems. Does it show the second (ghost monitor) in the display properties? If not id be willing to bet you have the wrong driver. Maybe even try an older driver as well.

    does it show the ghost monitor "2" in your display properties ever?

    completely uninstall the catalyst drivers and software, let windows find some native generic drivers, see if that works, and then we can revisit finding the correct ati drivers.

RCA d52w20b power button blinks 3 times and won't turn on

You need a new projector bulb. Google up your model and buy the best warranteed one you can find. Buy a "caged assembly" and not just a bare bulb.

Then unplug your tv and get a screwdriver. Follow your model's instructions and just snug down the electrical screws. Do not overtighten them.

Then consult your manual on how to reset the lamp timer so it knows you put a new bulb in and fires up from the first try.

Treat yourself because you've just saved yourself a trip from a repairman!!
