Question about RCA D52W19 52" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

RCA D52W19 I Have a 2 yr old RCA, It has been in storage for the last 6 months not climate controlled and i live in Arizona. The TV worked great before storage when I took it out last week the picture came in mainly green with hints of blue and red barley could make out what was on the screen. Local repair shop looked at for approx 15 seconds and said it was a convergence problem( chip ?)and quoted me 695.00 another shop said they could fix it for around 375.00 with out even looking at it just by the same description i am giving here, wondering if you could give me any insight on problem or a realistic cost i should expect to pay thank you

Well we got a "toston"(plantain) (as we say in my town) here, in one hand, I can give you a tip, but in other hand, I can give you a warning,,,first look for a tech to do this, Unplug the tv, remove the back cover, remove the crt borard( the one in the neck of the picture tube) clean all contact there, and put it back and check, if this dont solve your problem, then go with the cheap repair, dont go with the 695.00, that one dosent know whats happen and ask for the maximun, ah, and is true you most have capacitors problem....good luck even when a tv is unplug there could be dangerous higth voltage in it....

Very hard call. But if you didnt use it for a while, theres most likly bad or dried up capacitors in this TV. If a shop did see the oicture and they thought the convergence was out on it, then it probably is BUT 695.00 is a total rip off and if this shop is an authorized repair shop for RCA they should be reported to the company!!! I would go with the lower of the two estamates and go from there. Good Luck

My rca r52wh74 turns on for 10 secs then off.

was the storage unit climate controlled? If not then it's most likely due to heat and or humidity in which case I would suggest cleaning out the tv from the inside if you want to spend the time to do so but there is a good chance that the tv will need to be replaced.

17 yr. old 35" RCA loses color intermittently. Picture & sound ok

Three guns Red Blue and Green in the picture tube of an old CRT set. If one of the guns goes out it effects that color. Sounds like one of the guns inside of the tube is going out, To costly to replace for such an old antilog set that will have to have a convertor box next month anyway.

Won't work

It sounds like something in the high voltage (flyback) circuit failed. If any little thing shorts in these RCA's they will not start up. Stargazer
