Question about RCA HD52W59 HDTV Projection Television

1 Answer

3 curved lines top & bottom/blurred picture

My tv is about 1-1/2 years old. On occasion it would just turn off on its own. Today while watching tv, picture became distorted. I see 3 curved colored lines (green, red & blue) across top & bottom of screen, picture is blurry, almost like the way something in 3-D looks if you're not wearing 3-D glasses. Also, the screen is black in the same curve shape at the top of the screen above the curved colored lines and also at the bottom of the screen below the lines. Anyone know what this might be. Thanx in advance

The screen has colored vertical lines and becomes to a dark black band about 6 inches of width.The tv is exactly two years old by today.

My 3-year old 52-inch Toshiba flat panel TV (Model # 52RV53U, Serial # AM409000295) developed a display problem (purchased Aug. 2008, manufactured July 2008). Vertical multicolored lines appeared on the screen just left of center. The band of thin vertical bars is 5.5 inches wide. The lines are about 1/16-inch wide. They are stationary, always exactly in same place. They over-ride any other picture on the screen (no transparency). They are there all time even with no video inputs to the TV after the unit is turned on. See picture #1. The TV works well in every other respect, but, obviously, it is annoying to watch the picture with the color band blocking about 1/6 of the picture.

Further info, pics, comments, and updates on my Facebook page at

I already swapped out the TCON board with no improvement and replugged the TCON board cables with no improvement.

Most likely it is the flat panel tab bond failure (panel made by Samsung). Further solution updates will be on my Facebook page.

Edges of Picture & Text Sloping

This mis probably a cold solder connection in the horizontal circuitry called the pincussion. Theres a couple of coils and resistors that overheat from time to time and the solder connections get loose. Not really for a handiman has this tv has hi vboltage inside even when turned off. Shouldnt cost an arm ans a leg to fix if the repair shop knows what they Are doing. Good Luck
