Question about RCA HD52W59 HDTV Projection Television

1 Answer

Me again TV is driving me crazy....

I swear the TV is really makeing me mad. First it curved and the colors were missed up. So we replaced the fuse and it worked for a while. Then we lost the sound made sure things were hooked where they needed to be, seem to be doing okay. Then the power started kicking off and on before you knew it, it blew the fuse. Took the air compressor and aired it all out replaced the fuse and it seemed to work, day later it blew again. Only have one fuse left. Any ideas before I shot this piece of ****. This RCA TV is really a piece of **** if you ask me. FYI --- You have really been a lot of help.

Ok let see what we can do. These rca can be trouble. Im a technician and i see these alot. I guess that a good recomendation for these set LOL. First question. I take it you had the FL231 fuse problem... YOu replaced the fuse did you do the most important step. RESOLDER the flyback connections. i beleve that is step 7 in the instruction. this is the main reson this fuse blows. i have run into only one other case ...out of the hundreds of fuses i have replaced where the small signal cuircit board cause it to blow. but like i said very rare. i used to just put that fuse in and not resolder... it would come back to me within a day. LEt me know what happens

Actually it sounds like your component cables need to be changed. If you are connecting with component cables please try another set (if you buy a new set like from Radio Shack make sure you can get a refund if that is not the problem and you need to return them).

Hello. we have a lexmark 3100 color printer/copier and it is driving us crazy!! we change cartridges every time you turn around and lately when we change them we still don't get any improvment in the...

If it's driving you crazy and it's a Lexmark, yes, get another printer. This problem is not worth the headache and money to fix. It makes me crazy, too, when someone brings in a cheap printer for me to fix and have to turn around and tell them it's garbage because the problem involves proprietary test equipment from the manufacturer.

Print is dull.

Listen I have seen really, bad print ctgs from HP, before you drive yourself crazy replace the ctgs again, see if your print quialty improves. just cause it's new doesn't mean it's not defective.

HL-P5063W vibrating and won't turn on

i have had this happen to me several times in the field, and if it is what i think it is, you are not going to be happy =(

inside of a DLP type TV, there is a device called a 'color wheel'... it is essentially a disc made up of different colored glass that spins really fast. this disc has 3 or 6 (depending on make/model) pieces of colored glass like pieces of a pie affixed (read: glued) to a hub.

what happens sometimes is that one of the pieces of colored glass flys out of the hub, and causes a massive unbalance in the spinning wheel, which causes the hum/vibration, and since the colored glass is missing, the colors will be all messed up.

if this is what happened, then your television will require a new DLP engine.

Auto door locks 92 sport inline six

Sounds like you have a couple of problems:

1. Door locks will most likely be a bad fuse. Check all of your fuses under your dash with a 12V test light. test both sides of fuse to be sure.

2. Rear hatch will unlock using a key with or without power. Spray some graphite spray into the key hole to lube it up and try again. WD-40 works but it is not as good. When it's cold, vehicle locks will be harder to open and require extra lubrication.

RCA R52WH77 convergence missing from menu

THis is very common on these sets. there is a special fuse thats cause this.. kinda hard to get rca part number 259213.. .4 amp. the reason this blows is there is bad solder connections on the flyback. so when you replace this fuse you have to resolder these connections. so if you know how to solder and can find this special fuse. it is a fast and easy repair
