Question about RCA 40" Class LCD 1080p Widescreen HDTV, 40LA45RQ

Open Question

The picture went out and won't come back.

I had the tv only a few months when the picture went out. Oops as wife was going to call service people while I was at work. Time passed and now warranty is expired. The tv is brand new. I put it back in it's original box hoping I can fix it in my spare time. Everything worked excellent until the picture went out. Still has sound. I'm not an Electrician, just know some basics. Any ideas would be most appreciated. Thanks.

SOURCE: RCA F32650 32'' TV Just stopped working and 3 months after warranty 3-yr warranty expired

This is a very common problem with RCA tV sets. But unfortanatly, RCA is no longer made in this country or even owned by RCA anymore. They are a Canadian company called Thompson Corp and could not give two hoots about any problems with TV sets sold here in america. I say this from experience and try to contact them and file a complaint. ther customer service is rude and basicly calls us idiots! Alot of class action suits are pending or have been dropped as for the amount of sets they company have sold,They have attorneys working for them and delaying the cases. It is really the fault of the US Judges that are total morons about these things and try to go by un written laws. They dont have a clue as most of the US goverment does not. Your problem is not a power supply problem, But a high voltage transformer and a horizontal output transistor, and the reason why the estimate was so high, is because the tranformer is no longer available. Thats why the estimate is so high. Because who in there right mind would spend so much on a set as this. You can buy a 32" RCA(BUT I WOULD NOT BUY TRASH)At Wally World for less the $250.00 bucks! I no longer accept RCA TVs in for repair as replacement parts are so much money and im not proud to say I work on RCA TV sets. Total garbage sets!!

SOURCE: RCA 52" Menu Keeps Popping Up and Down

I see this alot at the shop ... the front panel buttons have become damaged. THe best coarse of action is to replace the front button cuircit board assembly... **** there is a tempery fix untill you get the part... remove the front panel and take button cuicit board out...just use remote to control the tv. This is also a way to test to see if this is the problem.. if you romove the connector to the buttons and the problem goes away then the buttons are the problem. you get get this cuicit board at union electronics. You have to get the extended model number off the back ussally d52w20yx1 or yx2 or yxsomething...not to difficult a repair

SOURCE: TV turns its self on and off

Greetings. I had the same problem with my 29" RCA, and it was easy to repair. I opened the back cover of my tv and just disconected the two wires cable that connect with the upper controler (volume, chanels, etc); and now it is working OK; but I must operate the tv only with the remote controler.

I hope this could help you.

SOURCE: have a 42 in rca lcd tv ,hsound but no picture

IF the set is under warranty, you should return it.

Do this to see if your set is "sending" the image to the LCD panel.
1) What the set on take a bright flashlight and press it against the screen.
2) Look for the "image" moving around the edge of the flashlight.
3) If you see the "image" then the problem is in the inverter/CCLT or the power to it.
4) If you do not see the "image", you should look at the LCD controller(TCON) for the problem.

SOURCE: RCA RP5420B 2Band AM/FM Clock Radio

At the top of the clock, there is four positions for the slider. The first is shown as a key, which I assume is the automatic time setting mode. The second is Wake 1, the third is Wake 2 and all the way to the right is a manual time setting mode. If you slide it all the way to the right, you can set the time, then either keep it in that mode or return it back to automatic mode. Either way, you now have the correct time displayed.

I have a Denon AVR 1912 purchased 1 1/2 years ago. All I have hooked to it is the cable box and then it runs it out to the TV and surround sound. My Denon stopped sending the picture to the TV but I can...


I would double check all the connections to and from the Denon. Cables and poor sockets are the biggest problem with these kind of systems. Double check the settings of the Denon for outputting video signals.

Volume at max and won't go down


This sounds like a common problem on these TVs. Try a factory reset:

1. Press and hold "Menu" and "Channel+" on the TV. (do not use the remote)
2. Using the other hand, press the Power button.
3. A small screen should appear in the top left part of the screen.
4. Using the remote, select "Memory Recall" and Enter.
5. Power off and reboot the TV and Computer.
6. Run channel auto-scan to regain the picture.

I had moved to another state and my tv sat for a couple of months in a temp controlled room. I plugged it in but when I turned the tv on I had a picture for about thirty seconds heard a like a sizzling...


usually after 4 or 5 yrs EHT ( transformer that supplies voltage to tube ) becomes weak - then TV won't get ON.. means no picture no sound ..but LED blinks - (sometimes '' garrrr '' like sound comes...that is from EHT )........ in some TVs along with EHT 1 or 2 components like resistor, transistors, etc will also gets deffective ............... so solution is TV circuit board has to be checked to find whether only EHT is deffective or other components are also deffective - price of EHT will be between Rs.250 (US$ 5) to Rs.600 ( US$ 12) ........iam from bangalore (09986222774, sathyavijayasarathibabu@ymail.com ) .....i don't have any idea about EHT component's price & service charge in your area........this problem cannot be solved by user unless user is a technical person having idea about components (resistors, transistors,diodes,...etc..), having multimeter , soldering iron & other tools...so my suggestion call TV service engineer.............TUBE IS FINE

What kindof printer doyou recomend fora hp2009m slimline desktop


Almost any HP, printer. Depends on how much volume your going to do and the speed you want.
I don't care what anyone anywhere says. No one can touch an HP for reliability. I service those at several Universities and Hospitals and have several of the small HP laser printers with well over a million pages on them. Some in the 2 million page count. You throw in a maintenance kit every now and then and they just flat out run.
I have serviced Lexmark, Xerox, Sharp, Canon,Ricoh and some other off brands. I do NOT sell anything, so to take the sales point of view out of it. I see the productivity and longevity of the HP printers every day I work. They have no close competition. They are in a class of their own.

NO TV PICTURE


The best way is to contact your service provider and ask them to trouble shoot guide you, there should be a way to reset or diagnose the receiver or if you prefer go back to the place you bought it and ask for a replacement, You should still have the manufacturer's warranty, check that as well.
