Question about RCA HD52W56 52" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Picture We have a rca 52 inch wide screen with built -in dvd player. Recently when you turn on the tv we have good quality sound, but a snowy picture. Within 10-15 minutes everything appears to be fine. The tv might play fine for hours and then all of a sudden the picture will go snowy, turn the tv off and back on and the picture is fine. After the tv sat all night, then turn it on in the morning and it is all snowy with good sound. If you put a dvd in the tv set the picture comes in fine, seems like it's something external of the tv. Could it be the piece on the back of the tv where the coax attaches?

Re: Picture

Yes it could ba the cable itself even, but i suspect more the tuner circuit or tuner itself may have bad solder connections. Here is another test for you to try, plug another dvd or vcr, or xbox etc. into the back, using one odf the inputs. See if this works like the built in dvd. if so it will be more likely bad connections in the tuner or surrounding circuit. good luck.

What is your TV input connection? Are you using Antenna? Cable? Dish?

The Unusable Signal sounds like the TV is not getting a signal. Does your TV have a built in HD Tuner?

If you are using Antenna you might want to try setting up the connections and it should search for quality channels that you get good signal strength. If you are on channel 2 and there is no over the air channel 2 it may say "unusable signal".
