Volume distortion only on tv setting

Hi I have a RCA 52" rear projection tv. When watching tv the volume is distorted,crackels (sounds like blown speakers. I running it through a AV Receiver which is fine on radio,cd,tape. I switch back to the RCA internal speakers same thing. If I switch to DVD the sound is crystal clear whether internal or through AV Reciever. Has anyone run across this before? I would appreciate any input or suggestions on this problem. I am having problems posting with model # mine is P52810LV

    I have the same problem. A repairmen told me that the dvd system uses different inputs for sound, than the tv and vcr do. Therefore, one can be affected, and not the other.



    In this case, there is probably a capacitor that needs to be replaced. He told me he would do it fro $250, and I'm trying to decide if this old tv is worth fixing.



    Temporary fix, uplug the entire unit (including cable box) for a few hours, then try it. That always fixes the sound on mine.



    Once again, the repairmen said that the capacitors get to hot when they are worn out, and unplugging the unit allows them to cool.

RCA HAD A CERTAIN MODEL SERIES THAT HAD A REALLY BAD DESIGN,,IT SEEMS THAT SOLDER CONNECTIONS STARTED BREAKING LOOSE AND DEPENDING WHERE THEY CAME LOOSE,,YOU WOULD HAVE PROBLEMS IN THAT CERTAIN CIRCUIT..TO DETERMINE IF YOU HAS THAT SERIES,,WE WOULD NEED THE CHASSIS # ON THE BACK...
IF THE CONNECTIONS CAME LOOSE IN THE VERTICAL CIRCUIT--THE PICTURE WOULD CLOSE UP ,,IF IN THE TUNER SECTION--YOU WOULD LOOSE CHANNELS ,,IF IT WAS IN THE AUDIO SECTION--YOU WOULD GET CRACKLYN SOUND OR NO SOUND
ONE THING YOU CAN TRY--PUT IT BACK IN THE TV MODE,,GENTLY TAP ON THE CABLE CONNECTOR IN THE BACK OF THE SET AND SEE IF IT CLEARS UP,,IF SO YOU HAVE THE CONNECTION ISSUE--WILL NEED A TECH..GOOD LUCK ..TUNICA

Problem is in High voltage circuit and likely either the high voltage transformer or a connection right under or around it.

RCA Rear projection tv turned off and turned back on automatically then the picture was distorted on all inputs


Try resoldering the flyback terminals. Often they develope a crack on the pins and that will cause the convergence yo drop out as well as the set to shut down and come back on.

My rca tv 52


Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.

The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded overs.

My tv all the sudden had all the colors distorted. It looks like I'm watching tv in 3D. Is this a major problem? Or can I fix it on my own?


No, replace STK IC, STK730-010? Located above chassis is a small board it should be on it.

Picture/color distorted


If the picture appears as 3D thats a simple and inexspensive repair. You can get the repair kit for your RCA Called "The ITC222 and ITC222A convergence option missing repair Kit" from www.tvrepairworld.com the kit contains the parts and the CD with detailed instructions.

My RCA projection TV - the picture only shows red green and yellow and the picture is distorted almost concaved. It overlaps and nothing is clear. All 3 bulbs seem to be working. No idea what is wrong.


Sounds like convergence problems. This TV may not have the standard "STK.." modules. These sets are bad to lose voltage feeding the convergence amplifiers.

Distorted picture on RCA LCD TV


I have the same tv. Had repair man come to my home in late april. Said it is the power convergence board. $225 for parts and labor I was told. Bad thing is part was supposed to arrive mid-may,then mid-june and now mid-july. He say's part is on back order. I'm actually going to contact RCA soon to find out if this is true. This seems to be a common problem with this particular T.V
