Question about RCA HD52W59 HDTV Projection Television

1 Answer

Rca projection television has a slight caving

Television has a slight caving on the middle and colors are distorted on both ends. I have checked the three convergence fuses that are located next to the power transformer all checked out fine, and also resolder the points on the power transformer. I do not know where else to check for the problem if someone could give me some feedback I will really appreciate it.

    Just watched a vid on Youtube with this exact fix, mine had same issue and i got a repair guy to fix it years back. Today i just saw flux on the bottom of board under the flyback connectors and on one fuse. I found its best to kind of slide the whole plastic piece that holds the boards and then lift it up at the back so u can see under it and test the fuses and inspect the joints. Mine are fine this time, but the flyback smokes :(

    i did notice that there was flux on another way smaller point or tow near the tranformer, see if that looks cracked, maybe there is a crack somewhere else too.

    point or two, not tow.

remove the speaker grille. then there should be a few screws running along the bottom of the screen frame. after removing those screws slide the entire fram up to release the hooks that hold the screen frame to the cabinet. Be careful and unhook the wire clip from the front control panel once the screen frame is loose before you stretch the wires.

Not haveing the convergence option on this set is a clear indication you have the fl231 fuse problem. this is a simple repair and i see it all the time at the shop. I would suggest you read the "fl231 fuse problem in the tips and tricks section of this website. others have repaired this for less than 10 dollars and about an hour. if you have any trouble be sure to let me know

I have a RCA Hd52w59 television that has a blurry red green blue colors on screen and the pics looked like they are caved in .any help ?

RED BLUE and Green are the component colors. If you are using component cables, which most likely you are, check to see if the Green has come unplugged. Try switching the cabls to a different input. Actually, if you get the same problem on another input that say....your DVD player is hooked to, you have a bad tv. If not, try to isolate it to the simplest thing first e.g. cables, input source, etc. Please don't forget to rate this solution for me.

Distorted picture

The RCA P52960 uses the PTK195 series chassis. There are 2 main boards at the bottom of the set and above the board on the right (when viewed from behind) is the convergence power supply board. This board usually has a big black IC on it, labeled STK730-010 and bolted to a metal heat sink. Chances are, that IC has burned out and stopped working. Replacing that IC should restore your convergence. If you do not have experience replacing IC's in projection sets, allow a qualified tech to handle it for you.
