Question about Televison & Video
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.
