2 Answers

RCA D52W20 52 IN.

When we turn on our tv. it shows an inverted pic. the color is fine but it looks like a big letter U or a horseshoe. We thought at first that it may have gotten hot or an appliance that i turned on may have shorted it out. does anybody have any idea what could be going on with our tv

Please do not use the service menu for this problem. The service menu is essentially for matching replacement boards to the particulars of your set. Significantly changing values can cause more harm than good. The rpoblem you have described is due to a component failure. No amount of adjustment will "fix" this. There is a problem in the convergence and/or vertical circuits. Please get a detailed repair estimate before you do anything. Some measurements are required inside the set to determine the fault.

Keep us posted.

You will need to enter the Service Menu and you can adjust this.

For the RCA D52W20 here is how you enter the service menu:

Turn the power off at the front panel, and then press and hold CH - and VOL - at the same time; after holding for about 8 seconds, the television will turn itself on in service menu mode.

HDRCA 52" model R52WH77, the pic looks like a big U in the middle of the screen and it turns its self on after turning it off. Sound is fine.


A capacitor is building up power and then when there is too much power it discharges turning the tv back on without you hitting the power button. The tv will need to be repaired by a service tech however get a quote and then decide whether it is better to just buy a new tv. LCD's have dropped in price greatly.

52 inch rca rear projection tv wont turn on


I have the same problem. I had someone come look at it and he showed me the problem but a terrible price, so i didnt have it fixed. The reason the light blinks is there is a problem and the safety mech is kicked in which shuts the TV off. If you take the back of the TV off, about 15 screws, you will see right in the front on the left side a part shaped like the letter "C". The number on top of mine is S5 19 2. That is the part that needs to be replaced. Now to find the part on the internet and figure out how to change it out. any suggestions?
