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

Re: RCA D52W19

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....

Re: RCA D52W19

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

JVC HD-56G886 tuner stopped working

My (unfortunate) guess would be the Tuner received a static discharge when you were changing the antennas... this time of the year is bad for static - if you're in a "Winter" climate.

Receivers have a very sensitive FET or MMIC amplifier right inside from the antenna connection to make it better for picking up distant stations.

However, this same "sensitive" amplifier is also prone to being destroyed by even a small static discharge... especially if the tuner had its power turned ON.

Sad to say, it's likely toasted... :-(
(I hope I'm wrong... but you have already tried all other possible solutions)

Power light blinks will not come on

Very common problem caused by weak capacitors CP150, CP120 and CP114. The caps drain down after being unplugged then wont charge again. You can get the RCA repair kit from which contain the parts and the CD with repair instructions.

Tv seems to be overheating. Works great everyday, everytime until it has been on for an extended period. Then tv will just shut off. Over Heating?

The deflection board has a problem which is shutting the set down. You can get The ITC222A deflection board from with instructions and a 6 month warranty.

I'm trying to improve the picture- seems to be TOO DARK- tv is 10 yr old ser3 935351541- ihave tried color adj etc

Rca Screen Control These sets have screen control adjustment usually located behind the speaker grill(pops off -velcro or press tabs) and convergence front board. There are 6 contols on a black molded assembly about 31/2"x21/2" square. adjust only the top controls marked "Screen R G B" the bottom ones are focus
-turn on set and let warm up for 30 min at least
-switch tv to blank unused video input channel
-adjust each control in turn until you see the picture glow (with the corresponding color) and slightly back off the control - repeat for each color - this will increase screen brightness and ballance your color
Hope this helped.

Tv turns on w/pic then pic dissapears light blinks 4 times

I have the same issue, we've had to change our bulb three times in less than two years. now we have 61" expensive paper weight. Our current bulb is less than 6 months old. The TV is only 2 years old and like i said this is our third bulb.

the blue light blinks 4 times. you get sound. then a few minutes the the picture returns... then it goes out, and the cycle goes on.

A solution to this would be greatly appreciated.

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.

What is the Best Brand HDTV?

Without question, Panasonic has made the most reliable TVs over the last 20 years. Having said that though, I do not generally recommend plasma TVs which are the only large TVs that Panasonic makes. I prefer LCD flat panel TVs as they do not have issues with phosphur burn, are much lighter, and more energy efficient.
