Question about RCA HD52W59 HDTV Projection Television

1 Answer

Slow to show picture at power up / poor picture

I have an HD52W59 HDTV and recently it is taking longer for the picture to show from the time we power on... Once the picture comes up it is mostly red/brown and we cannot adjust color or contrast from the menu.

Thankyou in advance for your suggestions....

I turn my RCA HD52W59 tv on and there is no picture. The green power light blinks 5 or six times but no picture.

Check the Capacitors on the Power supply board. They look like little soda pop cans. They all should be flat tops. If you see some buldging tops? They are bad and need to be replaced. Please use caution though Unplug the tv and discharg all large capacitors before proceeding. Cause even an unplugged unit the Caps hold a charge that can kill you.

Screan has no picture

i am not familiar with this television, but i can take a guess, it may have a snooze timer, which will make it dimm after a certain amount of time inactive. you could increase this time in settings, found on your remote.
hope it helps.
