Question about RCA HD61LPW175 61" Rear Projection HDTV
Suddenly color went out of wack. looks like giant finger print in mddle of tv. color around finger print. light green color in middle of finger print. tv is 2 years old average use.
If this is a 32 inch TV then it is a standard picture tube set. If the colors have suddenly gone out of whack, and the set has not been dropped or had any large magnets near it recently, it means that the degaussing thermistor has come loose from its legs. This is very common in the RCA regular picture tube sets. If you look in the back of the set you will see a large black coil of wire wrapped around the edges of the picture tube, with 2 white wires going down to a jack on the main PC board. Right next to that jack is the degaussing thermistor, which looks like a small silver disc, like a nickle, with 2 legs loosely soldered to its sides. One or both of those legs are probably loose, and if you are very careful you can solder those legs back onto the thermistor. If you do not have experience soldering small parts, allow a qualified tech to handle it for you.
