Sounds like a cable set not hooked up right. How are your cables hooked up?

    Strange. Disconnect the composite set and use straight antenna, and report back. I have a feeling there's an option not set correctly on the composite set.

    What's the model number? This is under RCA D52W20. Is that correct?

    This is really strange, so I apologize if it sounds like I'm asking stupid questions...just want to make sure I'm not missing something. I've downloaded the owner's manual so I'm a little more familiar with the unit. So, let's try this....


    1. Can you bring up the menu on the screen, and if so, is it in colour?

    2. Do you have any devices, like a high-end DVD player, that have component out? Try hooking them into the unit, and see if you can get picture out of that.

    3. Are you using an HDTV tuner through the DVI? Does that work?



    If you could try those, and report back, it'll eliminate a few more possibilities. If not, it's starting to sound like the video board may be glitchy.

My Rca 52 inch has lost color But If I set the feature


PIP means the set uses either two tuners or a dual tuner--could be a issue with the tuner. If it has a swap feature in the PIP use it to see if color when tuner is switched from main to PIP tuner.

A possible way around the issue is to look to see if rear audio/video inputs have color---you could route signal from a box etc to one of those and BYPASS the problem if rear inputs do not have this problem(not likely they will).

Blurred picture and colors. warped picture size


This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....


  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some images of convergence problems.

My big screen tv show snow on all channels.


ok.

if you see only snow on the regular screen, might as well check the connecting antenna at the back since you mean all snow on all channels.

hope this helps.

Pip


On the front of the TV while it is on, press on the ACTION and POWER buttons at the same time and hold them for about 5 seconds until the screen goes blank and comes up with a diagnostic screen. Once that happens release them and press action again to clear the diagnostic information. Now your TV is se back the way it was brand new so you will have to proram the channels back into memory and apply your color,brightness,hue etc..settungs as those have all gone back to factory as well.

Main screen color seems overmodulating. PIP subfeed color fine. White like under black light.


rule number one about all vs chassis with vertical can pip boards take them out and throw them away i could fix one but you couldnt beleive me and it wouldnt be worth your while do a search on your modle number until you come up with instructions on how to add two caps to the pip board connector to bypass it until you do this you are wasting your time Mitsubishi ... we're still building Zeros
