Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

3 lines (R,G,B), Picture is Conave and 3-D

Our RCA TV Model # R52W474 (about which I can find nothing at all!) is about 2.5 years old. It has worked like a charm - and did up til about an hour ago. It was...fine, great - then it went blank for...maybe a few seconds, a bit longer. When it came back on, we had the whole R-G-B color lines at the top, the picture is concave (both of which are more prominent when you first turn it on). While those seem to improve slightly, the whole picture is...blurred. It reminds me of very poor 3-D effects.

I looked thru several solutions here, but was unable to find 'my' TV on here, and am loathe to just...try them without being certain they are appropriate for this particular set. I looked thru the Setup on the TV, but there is no 'Convergence' on it that might be adjusted. (Which is the problem if I understand the answers for other, similar, models.) In Setup it's just 'Picture, Advanced Picture' and other such things.

We...really (really!!!) don't have the money to pay someone to fix this, with my terminally ill with cancer mother. Could someone please tell me if 'we' can fix it...or to have it fixed cheap is possible?

Thanking you in advance

The problem with your set is bad connections on the flyback transformer and a blown fuse right beside the flyback. If you double check the model number, you will probably see that it is a R52WH74. It is an relatively easy repair, but if you have no experience, it may be best to find a qualified tech. Please rate my solution and let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Good morning, My tv is only 3 1/2 years old. It just stop working, I changed the batteries in the remote and still won t work, I will try to turn it on, it comes on for about 2 seconds then goes off...


Hi, there must be something wrong in the power supply circuit, usually because of bad or off value components, if the TV actually gets a picture and cutts off, the power supply could be the circuit to suspect, if the tv does not give a picture, it only does the click and the power light turns on but nothing else happens, there could be something else wrong besides the power supply circuit.

Rolling lines on screen


Sounds like the power supply has a bad capacitor. This problem can inject excessive 60 hz from the AC line into the vertical stabilizing picture system. The hum also my come from the same reason, bad or leaking filter capacitors. Cheaper just to buy a new TV or borrow another TV and connected to your system to see if the problem still occurs.

RCA 32 in TV no picture no sound just a beeping noise TV power is on


The beeping sound is most likely the high voltage generator needing replacement. This is a fairly easy job if you have some tech support to discharge the picture tube. You can go to the following link and leave them an email with your model number and your symptom and they will email you back with the part you need and they provide free tech support with instant messageing so you can do the repair yourself. the HV generator takes about a half hr to replace and takes only the basic soldering ability. heres the link.
