Question about RCA HD52W59 HDTV Projection Television

1 Answer


I have a 52" RCA rear projection TV. My screen just went out. Warranty expired. The main menu displays, some colors are missing. The unit powers on fine and the convergence shows all four colors. The machine doesn't shut off itself or anything like that. The sound comes through on all inputs, however the picture doesn't at all. Can anyone help?

I think already answered this but:

If on screen menu comes up hook up something to one of the rear av inputs and see if set works (have to move to that input with remote or input feature on front of set)

if picture etc that way tuner in set may be bad (look to see if coax fitting is loose or broken)

I have a 52 rca rear projection was watching tv and went black after a few minutes it turned back on from the power button and i have color lines on the screen and pic is ditorded almost like in a bubble....

Go to Menu ,then Setup look and see if you have Convergence on the Menu ? If you do not see convergence in the Menu then you have a Blowed Fuse FL231 on the Deflection Board.
Let me know what you have listed in the Menu.Problem is not in the Tubes R/G/B.

RCA 52 in HDTV red, green and blue colors not alligned - concave

That repair only repairs the issue of the convergence option missing from the on screen menu. If thats what your problem is then the ITC222A convergence option missing repair kit at the following link should repair the issue. The kit contains the fl231, DL231, CL230 and the CD with detailed instructions.

Is the tubes going out on my rear projection tv?

If the red, green, and blue colors are separated like a rainbow, then the convergence amps are going out. This set has a common problem of two electrolytic caps going bad. The caps are in the upper left-hand corner of the main board and will have a bulged top if bad.
I would not think the picture tubes are bad, especially all at once.

Convergence problems

That should still be under RCA warranty. Have RCA cover that repair before your warranty expires.

Panasonic Rear Projection TV

its either the color wheel or light engine they can both cause this symptom. I would inspect the color wheel see if its brken or at the very least got a good connection as thats alot cheaper than a light engine.
