Question about RCA D44LPW134 44" HDTV

1 Answer

Possible heat related problem to television.

To: Whom It May Concern, I have a 16x9 HDTV with virtual dolby surround sound. My problem is the tv will run for approximately twenty minutes and then cut off. It will stay off for about ten seconds and cut back on. It will start doing this quicker and quicker until it is doing it every five seconds. I took off the back to look and cannot see anything wrong, however if I put a fan in the back, the problem stops. It appears it is a heat related problem but I am not sure. Thank you for any help you can give.

That is the sound of a damaged blue LCD unit. Probable cause = overheated due to blocked air ways or an old lamp producing more heat than light.

Need help hooking up surround sound with my Sherwood DAS

Sherwood's site has a manual for the model RV-4060 (click here to download) but not for the 4050. You might find it similar enough to help you. Otherwise you can try a Google search for generic Dolby surround connections. It's usually pretty straightforward. Connect the audio out from your source (TV, DVD player, etc.) to the receiver. Connect the surround channel speakers to the appropriate rear panel jacks. Fire up a source you know has Dolby encoding, turn on receiver's Dolby processing from the front panel, and experiment with the different modes to hear what you get. Just remember you can't break anything just by pressing buttons.

Rca scenium 52" has light bar area down each side

I take it that you have watched many hours of 4x3 video on this 16x9 TV . What you see is evidence of screen burn, like they used to warn about with the old "pong" type games with stationary objects. The 4x3 pattern is burned into the phosphor in the projection tubes. the area of the burned pattern is not as efficient as the unused areas that make up the 16x9. If you watch enough 16x9 it may even out somewhat, but will never be perfect. Replacing the tubes will fix it, but they're pricey, and you may be subject to it happening again, depending on your viewing habits.

I want to hook a system

you will only be able to get digital surround( dolby digital ) from your dvd player( by the coax or optical digital connections ) , the rest will only be in virtual surround

from the dtv box plug the yellow video jack(RCA) into the vcr video input , then plug the audio jack or jacks into the audio input on the vcr. from the vcr hook the audio out to the audio in on the reciever( tv/vcr/sat... input ) , then also connect RF out from the VCR to RF in on the TV .
for the dvd player hook the "s-video out" to the "s-video in" on the tv , then the audio L and R on same s-video input , then send the audio out connection on tv to L and R input on reciever dvd L and R input , then you will need to connect the optical from the dvd player to the reciever or coax connections for the dolby digital on the reciever to work

#1 When I turn on the TV the power button comes on then blinks 6 times then goes off for a few seconds then repeats the cycle. I have sound over my surround system during this time but no picture.
#2 My sound would crackle and pop every once and a while until now it does nothing. I have to watch it with the surround sound on.

Display size problem

Sound very much like you are in 16X9 mode with a 3X4 signal. That is not uncommon. Do you lose any information, top or bottom with a HD signal? Bink.
