Question about RCA HD52W58 52" TV

1 Answer

Bending Picture I have an older model large screen tv, around 1995. I am unaware of the model number, or year as i bought the tv used and do not know where to find this information ... but it is a rear projection tv. My problem is the picture has begun to 'bend' into the center and the color doubles ... its almost looks like the people on tv have a shadow around themm and the colors are altered .. the problem will go away for a while if you turn off the tv or if you go to the menu, then sceen, and then adjust projection tv which then gives you the option to adjust the green centering or the blue and red convergence ... however this only fixes the problem for a short period, and them it happens again, and more frequently .. any suggestions on how this can be fixed or is the tv garbage????

Convergence issues can be one or more of three different this case i would think it might be what is known as covergence power board.+ convergence amp board. both items very fixable and easy to replace. It would be difficult to determine however because if its the ssb board... then much more difficult to replace.

No longer has picture - voice still working - can it be fixed or is it worth fixing?

Not knowing brand and model number most of these sets have a 4-5 year life and parts for a set of this age may not be available.

The risk in repairing a set this old is it may just fail again and again.

Color looks white washed!!!

there are in the older rear projection sets lens for those that do not use a lamp for a light source.

In the older sets there are three large black lens that can be seen and reached with the rear cover off---if there clean them as they are the light source in those sets and if dusty picture will look dull and darker than it once did.

If in doubt shoot me a model number.

I have a old 52 inch sony tv turns on but picture blinks off and on whats wrong

A lot of their older sets (both regular TV sets and big rear projection set had this issue).

In either case it may mean with age the MASTER SCREEN control/s need to be adjusted slightly up---if too dim a picture it will blink.

A model number would tell me what to try.

Models beginning with KP are large projection and ones with KV are regular sets.

We have a 50inch ultra-vision, the picture seems to be dim and losing its color

If the set has not been serviced in several years and the picture slowly got darker and or duller looking you may just need to try something simple.

With the set unplugged and the back cover removed look for the three lens----I presume it is a older set called rear projection and not a DLP, the model number would tell me which it is.

If older you will find three large black lens near the middle, clean them free of dust etc with a lens cloth and check the picture again.

Let me know model number if you need further help

I have a big screen toshiba tv, it's an older model and it is showing double picture, kinda like 3D, wondering what the problem would be. Not sure of the year or anything like that as i don't know where to...

This is a failure of the convergence circuit. There will be 2 or 3 sometimes, large black IC's labeled STK... (something.. generally 392-110,or 120, or 150) These need replaced, check for open fuses, could be glass type or pico fuses, also check all resistors around the IC's for burn marks, these must be replaced with EXACT replacement parts.

How is this tv someone is trying to sell me it for 700 dollars is it worth it?

JVC DLP TVs are great TVS but I would not recommend purchasing a DLP TV used, nor would I pay $700 for a used TV!
The most I would pay for that TV would be about $300 as long as the lamp has been replaced within the last 4 months.
Save your money and add to that $700 and purchase a new flat panel LED TV, you will be much more satisfied with picture, performance, color processing, etc., you will probably have to settle for a smaller screen, but you will get a better TV in the long run.

Apologies to Andy Hi Fi and tvtek who both answered this query yesterday, but I gave out the wrong model of tv. My set takes about 5 minutes to produce a picture, which is then as good as ever. Sound comes...

This fault sounds very much like the CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) is approaching the end of its life. If you can find a TV engineer in your area - preferably one from "the old school" - he may well have a "Tube booster". This sometimes works to "rejuvenate" old CRT's but can also unfortunately, bring an abrupt end to the tube, because it involves passing a higher than normal current through the tube heaters.

Environmentally, it all depends on the age of your current TV and the size of the screen. If it's a fairly large screen, (32") it will probably consume around 250 to 300 Watts of electricity. Modern LCD TV's are more efficient, however gas plasma TV's tend to use slightly more power than LCD models.
As you will know, TV's don't use that much power in comparison to say, a cooker, electric kettle, fan heater or washing machine heater so you can expect to use around 200Watts for your new TV if it has a 32" screen. Power consumption goes up of course, the larger the screen size you have, so if you bought a 40" or 50" screen you would not save anything in power compared with your old CRT type TV.

If your current TV has lasted for 20 years or more then you have done reasonably well. That's not to say that many TV's with conventional CRT's often last MUCH longer than this.
Tandberg CRT TV's have been known to still be working perfectly well after more than 30 years! Much the same with Panasonic.

TV: bright line across black screen for several hours.

vertical output ic needs to be resoldered. careful leaving that bright line displayed on the screen as this will cause a permanent phosphor burn into the tube. this can not be corrected once burned unless you replace the tube. mch
