2 tvs broken, same problem

I moved into a new hosue and got charter cable. two out of my three tvs powered off while watching them. They will not turn on anymore. One is an Mitsubishi projection about 8 years old, and the other is a year old toshiba. Both TVs worked fine before getting charter cable hooked up, is it the cable? please help. Also the toshiba is like 21 inches or so, if i leave it unpluged from the wall for a few days, it will turn on for about 10-40 seconds. please say thats a good sign. Thank you!

How to replace a bulb

To replace bulb in RCA rear projection TVs follow this.
Turn the lamp assembly so that the front of the bulb faces downward
Locate two clips approximately three inches apart along the back edge of the rear lamp cover. Depress the clips with your thumbs and pull upward on the rear lamp cover to disengage it. Move the rear lamp cover so that you can see the head of the bulb. Note that the rear lamp cover still connects to the base of the bulb by a cable.

Locate the three hex screws around the head of the bulb that, in a triangle formation, secure the bulb to the assembly. Remove the screws with a hex screwdriver.

Pull the bulb and rear lamp cover upward to remove them.
Remove the nut that connects the cable from the rear lamp cover to the base of the bulb with a wrench. Disconnect the cable from the old bulb and discard the old bulb.
Reattach the cable from the rear lamp cover to the base of a new bulb and install the nut. Tighten the nut with a wrench
Install the bulb face down into the lamp assembly. Install the three hex screws into the tabs along the edge of the bulb and tighten with a hex screwdriver.

Reinstall the rear lamp cover onto the lamp assembly and line up the tabs with the holes along the side of the assembly. Press downward until the cover snaps into place.
Reinstall the lamp assembly into the back of the television, facing the bulb towards the center of the TV set. Tighten the screws securing the assembly and reinstall the lamp access door. Tighten the screw on the lamp access door.

Brightness is fading. Unable to watch a DVD or USB camera the picture is unviewable. Watching TV is not clear anymore

i think ur tvs crt base have some problem. from ur explanation it may be because of the focus is out. just replace the crt base for the three guns (at the same time). then try again.

Bought a proscanlcd hdtv 32lb30Q unable to get cable signal

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls confirm if below is how it is wired using a coaxial cable and not 3cable RCA to RCA:
  • Charter Digital Cable > DVD/VCR > TV
If yes and your concern is snowy or no signal on the TV screen, might it be that you have to power OFF the DVD/VCR when selecting channels on the TV itself (including when channel setup is being done).

Alternately, you can tune the TV to channel 3 and let the DVD/VCR do the channel selections.

Pls post back results. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

SONY SXRD Powers off and on

the tv will cycle the lamp over and over when it goes bad. for some reason, it doesn't spit out the lamp error. the steady green blinking led means the tvs coming on. replacing the lamp will solve your problem.

During our move the connection for the cable was broken off and we're no longer able to connect the cable wire. Can a new adapter be installed enabling for attachment of the cable wire.

You can use your VCR to connect the cable into and then choose in the menu which output you want which is component or Svideo. If you don't have a VCR then go to radio shack or electronics store to get a RF converter which is for older TVs(really old) which didn't have a coaxial connector. Get the one that has component and Svideo on it. Then you connect the component to the TV component(or Svideo) input and select that input in the TV menu. Fixed!

Rear Projection TV

I have the same set, about a year into owning it went black, power light but no picture, still under warrenty and ended up being the main board, they replaced and has worked well since, these tvs are sensative to spikes over the cable line, I got a really good cable surge protector after it was fixed.
