Question about RCA D52W23 52" HDTV CRT TV

1 Answer

Older 36 inch rca crt tv broken

The TV worked perfectly fine until I was transporting it.  I had it upright in my truck tied up.  Somehow it tilted over onto the side of the truck bed.  When I got out of the truck it was leaning diagonally with the plastic right above the screen leaning onto the truck bed.  So thats where the impact was.  When I brought it inside the TV starts buzzing as soon as you plug the cord in before you even do anything.  It buzzes pretty loudly and near the back where the power cord goes into the TV.  The TV does not work at all anymore.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.

TV has alittle dark haze,not bad,9inchs in from side,top to Bott


Probably the light tunnel. The tunnel is a square tube made up of 4 mirrors glued together.

It looks like this from the side: |_| (with a piece on top too.)
When the glue breaks down, it shifts inside the little mirror holder. The shifted mirrors looks like this /_/ what you are seeing is the shadow of the tilted mirror tunnel.
ON the RCA's there's not a good fix.

RCA's response:
"Ok, well sadly they do not offer the light tunnel anymore, which is what you need. Sadly you would be rendered to get a whole new light engine assembly. That would be the D.N.D module, light tunnel,color wheel,optic spanner, and oci. mirror. Your best bet would be to search ebay2_bing.gif for a broken engine and replace it that ways."

That is the ONLY response I got from them.

I took the set apart and found the 4 tiny mirrors. I will be attempting to epoxy them together. (The set is dead anyway, why not try?)

Philips Rear projectoion tv picture not clear


no its not true, you can lay them flat to move, it sounds like the convergence is out of whack, download the owners manual and redo the convergence manually for the red and blue, then go back and do the same for the multi point convergence for the red and blue, also if the color looks muted or flat, the projector lenses might need to be cleaned as well as the mirror in side of the unit.... very easy to do, just use caution and DO NOT SPRAY ANY LIQUIDS INSIDE THE UNIT.... spray the cleaning rag outside the unit the wipe off the mirror and lenses....i got this same TV free from craigs list here in pa, put a new mirror in because the original was shattered and re did the convergence and this TV pic is AWSOME.... very crisp and clear...hope this helps you

Without disassembling the set (removal of the back), there is no way to determine what might have been damaged and further operation without finding and correcting the problem may could cause further damage and may be unsafe. In many CRT sets, the main board is not very secure and is normally held by slots either side of it. It may have been jarred out of the slots and shorted something on the trace or component side. If would be safe (unplugged of course) to remove the rear housing with the 4-6 screws holding it and at least visually examine it inside; the problem may be easy to spot and correct.
However, any kind of sharp shock to the CRT (picture tube) may have misaligned it inside, making the picture geometry and color alignment impossible.
If your set is not compatible with the coming HDTV standard, you might want to consider replacing your set. I suggest though, that you take a look at this article describing the pros & cons of CRT TVs:
CRTs or not?
As a service tech, I would also suggest you poke around here (Fixya) to see how others are faring with their various kinds of flat-panel and big screen sets; way too many are dying like flies.
