Question about RCA HD56W58 56" TV

1 Answer


I purchased a RCA MODEL HD56W58. Back in Jan 7 2006. Have had nothing but problems with this set. When it works is great. The bads starting getting worse in early Oct. tech can out to reset somethings. Then in Dec the tv really starting to have problems It would start shutting down intermittently every 2 to 6 hrs with a terrible sound going for the speakers. They pick up the set on 12-7-06 had to wait a few weeks for the part. The part was a MD3 Module PN:265950. The set was return to us on 1-13-07, 5 WEEKS later. The very next day the problems started again. The tech said it maybe a bad module. I just think I have a defected set.They have be waiting for a replace module since 1-15-07. With today being the 25. I need some help or suggestion on this issue. I even have a extended warranty thru RCA. This is going to be my 4th service on the is with 5 months. Why will they not replace the set.

This model has a history of being plaged with bad solder connections, and that may be your problem still today. If your state has "lemon laws" you might want to pursue that venue if contacting RCA directly doesn't produce results. RCA's have been my bread and butter for at least the last 12 or so years in the service business but I would not buy one today for myself.

It should be in the main menu and if not present it means a problem in the set has caused that.

RCA 57 inch hdtv Model#HD56W58 has sound but no picture.

WOW...had a high pitch noise, came and worse as time wore on. Would shut off the set, times it cleared times it didn't. Warranty folks set out a TV repairman--said he had worked for RCA exclusively for years...anyway, explained that the 1k hertz noise was a known issue with the HD56W58 and that RCA’s published fix was "nail polish" applied on some board, had something to due with power and vibration...long story "presto" noise gone...but after 6 or so months we began to hear it again—say it ain’t so, but yes the high pitch was back. Same repairman, this time bigger problem...along with noise, the network card is broke and Fry’s Electronics (Irving, TX—hear that Corporate HQ at San Jose…your Irving store needs to be leased in and tote the company line...where's the customer satisfaction???) is balking at a “equal” replacement, they see it as take the less than equal product or get store credit…good luck & wish me luck with the equal replacement they tout when pushing the warranty.

Did you use the Automatica Convergence to try and straighten it out? If that does not help, you can manually adjust the convergence.

Service Menu RCA HD56W58 56" TV

go to

Click on "publications ordering" (in the list on the lefthand side of the homepage)
Click the box for service information. Enter the model number (or click the chassis button and enter the chassis number).

In the list of documents you can purchase for $40 ESIATC32X -- the service manual on CD for your set.

This disk will have the info you need.

If you do decide to purchase it (and I highly reccommend you do so), send me the alignment chapter and I would be happy to post it for others who have the same set on my homepage.
