Question about RCA D52W20 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Snapped cable input

So I snapped off the cable input on my RCA 52" rear projection. I am new to having a big TV like this, so I'm not sure whether this is a problem I can fix myself, or one I need to have a professional repair. I think I can pull the panel off the back of the TV to access the cable input, but I am not sure. I assume this piece is replaceable. I am hopeing someone out there might know. Taking this TV to a repair shop will be a big pain in the butt. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. notfop

Re: Snapped cable input

It all depends on what actually broke. Those input connectors are usually 90 degree metal units, soldered to the circuit board, so possibly the connector took a chunk of board with it. Any competent TV technician should be able to repair this in your home, especially if you tell them what the problem is when you call them. That way they will know what parts to bring.

Mitusbishi WD-52327 tv cannot figure out how to get the digital cable box to come on screen?

Connect RCA wires (yellow, red, white) from the box's "out" to the tv's Input 1 or 2 on the back input panel of the tv set. If you don't have RCA's you may use a RGA- jumper wire (cable wire made into a 4 ft segment by the tech or buy a short cable wire from the Walmart, Target, or Goodwill store) Connect this wire to the "cable in" on the tv and the other end to the "cable out" on the box.ADDITIONALLY make sure you have the right input settings selected on the tv with the input selection you make with the wire connection you choose.

Often they can be soldered back onto the tuner. But the tuner itself may need replacement which you can get tuners and the entire SSB which has the tuners already on them from

AWe are attempting to play PS Three, but the Inputs on the front and back of tv for the RCA cables arent working. What should we do to make the inputs work?

change the input, i have the same configuration ps3 and 52 inch rca, just plug it into front and change the input to front, if that dont work try this, since your ps3 probably came off a tv that had hdmi you need to hold down the ps3 button for 9 seconds and it will ask you if you want to change it to lower settings, but first make sure you have the input right

If your cable box has the red, green and blue component outputs that would work good as long as the TV has component inputs. Other than that you could use the side yellow input.

RCA 52" tv. model # D52W20

The silver box is called the TUNER. Call an RCA distributor, such as Union Electronics or Herman-Panson and order it by description by asking for the tuner for your model number. Have the location number on the board, just in case.
