Question about RCA D52W23 52" HDTV CRT TV

1 Answer

RCA TV question....

I had posted a question about my tv, and was browsing through other peoples problem, and saw an interesting comment you added for sometime....about checking these fuses...that didnt look like fuses, but rather small brown caps....

I have a RCA D52W23 tv, and it had started doing the tricolor ghosting/double image thing....and the screen at the top and bottom looked like it was caving in towards the center.... i had taken everything apart, nothing looked damaged, smelled burned, or arcs when i power the set on.....then after a couple of minutes of looking for the "Auto-Convergance" option i knew was in setup, i could no longer find it, and then as i was looking through the menus the tv powered off completely. and now if you press the power button, the power lights up for a few seconds, the screen never turns on, then the whole unit turns off....and you can't power it back on....unless you unplug it from the wall for a few minutes and try it again.

Does this sound like the same kind of problem? I hate to bug ya so close to new years, but it sounds like you know the exact problem i have. I'd appreciate any help, thanks!

When i turn it on the screen turns green then blue and then shuts off

This is one of a group of sets that had bad picture tubes (RED, GREEN AND BLUE).

The tubes are no longer available from Sony and only available on a rebuild basis---very expensive.

There is something easy that requires no parts you can try in an attempt to cure it. Takes about 15 minutes and I can tell you how and what to do.

If this is of interest to you rate this solution as very helpful and comment here and I will assist you.

One might think that 3D would be a good thing but I am assuming that the problem is that it looks 3D without the glasses or in other words horribly fuzzy. If this is so you should be able to adjust the convergence in the set up menu to resolve your issue.
