Question about RCA HD52W59 HDTV Projection Television
Sometimes it may take a few minutes to turn black and other times when you turn on the tv it will never show the video, but audio is fine. I can slap the left side of the tv and picture will almost always come back on. Volume bar is visable when adjusting volume and mute symbol will appear. Sometimes it will alternate back and forth without doing anything and then it will stay black, then I give up. Unit is about 9yrs. old. I also performed the auto convergence. Picture looks great when it comes up. Please Help!!
You have actually diagnosed your own problem, Let me explain; the line "I can slap the left side of the tv and picture will almost always come back on" This indicate some form of poor connection (cold solder joint). If you have a soldering iron, solder (circuit type not pipe type), and a multimeter. Use the soldering iron and solder to redo the cold solder joints , and then test it (the connection) with the multimeter.
I hope this helps
