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

1 Answer

I have a problem with my RCA 52" big screen...1 yr and 3 months old was having no probs with it and one day while watching it seemed like the video in the projection just slipped and now I need 3D glasses to watch it if it even stays on and the picture is curved. I will turn it on and there will be a blue,red, and a yellow line at the top of the screen and it will be on for up to 30 minutes and then it turns off and then turns back on and then off again. I can't get anyone out to service it...they all refuse to service RCA and even RCA customer service dept. is not being very helpful. It has now been close to 2 months and I need help or a referral to a good lawyer to file a class action lawsuit!!!

The problem you described is usual wear and tear but an easy fix your flyback needs to be resoldered and ther is a resistor a 150ohm that is starting to open up that resistor is toward the back to your right next to a plug to provides B+ to your CRT boards

My screen on my 52'' tv cracked can i replace it


My daughter cracked ours when it was 3 days old, like a lovely spider web, on the right side about an inch and half in diameter (she threw a brush). I used clear nail polish. If you have a big crack though, dont think that would be of any help.

I'm trying to improve the picture- seems to be TOO DARK- tv is 10 yr old ser3 935351541- ihave tried color adj etc


Rca Screen Control These sets have screen control adjustment usually located behind the speaker grill(pops off -velcro or press tabs) and convergence front board. There are 6 contols on a black molded assembly about 31/2"x21/2" square. adjust only the top controls marked "Screen R G B" the bottom ones are focus
Method:
-turn on set and let warm up for 30 min at least
-switch tv to blank unused video input channel
-adjust each control in turn until you see the picture glow (with the corresponding color) and slightly back off the control - repeat for each color - this will increase screen brightness and ballance your color
Hope this helped.

Please tell me the correct way to clean the pleziglass screan on our new to us 2 yr old 52" RAC Big Screen TV


The best way is to use a soft,lint free cloth and get some specialized screen cleaner just for TV's, LCD monitors, ETC. Never use widex or any of the ammonia based cleaners. Have seen folks make a real mess of their screens.

I have a 52 inch RCA projection TV about 15 yr old today the colours are not lining up causing a shadow of red behind white lettering and looking like a 3 D show withought wearing the proper glasses?


you need to replace the convergence supply board, if it's one of the earlier models, you change the chip stk730-130 that will fix it. the board is small and up off the chassis to the right slightle, 4, 1/4'' screws holds it in place.
you might be able to get a whole new board, which would require no soldering to fix.

14 MONTH OLD TOSHIBA TURNS OFF BY ITSELF


I repair a lot of these and a average tv lasts like 3 years . It is not like the old days. I suspect the lamp or fans or therm protector.

I would call a local tv shop see what they charge for estimate it might be worth his estimate to find out what it is.


Thanks doctor video

RCA Big Screen Turns off


This is a shutdown circuit problem, I would suggest that you send it to atv shop, or find a shop on FixYa.com to look at this for you. I have fixed problems like this in my shop, but I always require the customer for pay a schematic and a exploratory fee prior to me starting the job, other shops may or may not do this, so shop around first.

You have bad convergence IC's.. If your not experienced in troubleshooting electronics or soldering, you should have a trained tech take a gander at the set. Its not worth risking life and limb to save a few bucks, Good Luck
