Question about RCA D52W19 52" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Screen TV shuts down

First, I'd like to state ~It's wonderful FIXYA helps people with there problems (thank you soooo much). Now, I have a RCA 51 inch HD Screen TV. About four months ago, the TV shut off by itself, then turned itself back on, after thirty seconds or so. Now, it does it more often, and stays off at a longer interval (Before it turns itself back on again). Can you tell me what the problem is?

    Thanks for your advice. It's nice to know there's a place to find out things like this. I'm sorry that I didn't mention that it will stay on for ten to twelve hours without ever doing this. thanks again, Rick

Sounds like an electronic part (a resistor, a diode, etc) that stops conducting electricity when it heats up to a certain point. Maybe it physically loses contact on its circuit board due to a bad solder, or the part itself is internally defective. Unfortuantely you'll need an expensive professional repairman to diagnose it. TVs have high voltages, ya know, and can kill you if you go mucking around inside.

I HAVE A 32 INCH RCA COLOR TV THAT IS CONNECTED TO MY DISH RECIEVER WHEN I TURN THE TV ON IT TURNS OFF BY ITSELF. MY OTHER TV WORKS JUST FINE. HELP!


Your RCA TV has problems. You did not specify the model of TV. I will tell you, most of the RCA sets that will come on and shut down are nightmares for us TV repair people. The best solution is to replace this TV. I have had real headaches with RCAs that have your problem. Even if you have it repaired....its only a matter of days when it will continue to shut down.This is very good advice, though sorry to hear your TV is on the fritz. Thanks for asking and show all hands of support!

Screen is scrambled. Working fine until I unpluged the TV one day. Is it a fuse?


If it looks 3d or warped its a convergence problem

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....


  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some images of convergence problems.

51 inch projection- can't read words clearly,


ll projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both.

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

Here are some pics of convergence problems.

Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

Same problem as above, picture bowed top and bottom, convergence


Projection sets have two very common problems outlined below.

The first common problem is convergence

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. The TV can also shut down when the convergence starts to fail.

Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith, RCA and others.


You can more info and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from TV Repair Kits using the link at the end of this article.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped or bowed
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Turn tv on, shuts immediately off.


Same problem with my 28 inch 16:9 CRT Sanyo. I usually fix it by cutting the power to the outlet and then it works fine. Had it into the repair shop - and of course it never acts up there...

Aura around the edges.


First disconnect power and remove rear cover look to see if any dust has settled on tubes. I think on that model you can remove screen frame by removing speaker grill, remove a few screws and then pullin forward on screen frame. Then screen w/ brackets will slide forward exposing tubes and mirror. This will allow you to look down in tubes with power on and see if any debris has grown in coolant chamber. This will tell you if you need coolant replaced, or if you need adjustments and/or circuit board work. Do not try to do adjustments if tubes are cloudy. Just have coolant replaced and the set will look like new. Good luck, Russmann.
