Question about RCA D52W20 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
When I turn on my tv, I get a black screen that says unusable signal. I change the channel, same thing. I try to use the DVD player or another add on and it is still black. My TV is an RCA 37in flat sceen tv. I have a RCA Scenium 52". When I turn on my tv and DirectTv, I also get a message saying "unusable signal". Any suggestions? Cant really afford to have a repairman at this time, hoping for a do it yourself fix. Thanks

Read the suggestion of unplugging the TV for at least 4 hours to re-set to factory specs and that took care of it!

ok....i know what is wrong with your set.. it is a small (very small micro fuse. rca has issued bulliten to service centers on the problem.. getting the fuse and describing where it is then soldering might be the difficult problem here.. but let me give it a try. it is located on the main signal board in a shelded covered board called the main signal board. The fuse, 1C33,is located approximately 2 inches behing the tuner
The surface mounted part has various markings on
the original part from “105” to “F”
and is located below the board marking “7C32'
Replacement fuse #275819 can be placed directly over the top and soldered to the ends of the existing fuse
to lessen the chances of damaging the board traces.
all that being said.. this is some trick soldering.. and unless your a tech i would not recomend such a repair.. i cant speak for all shops but such a repair is not that difficult for most techs and cost about 125 to 200. So good luck and let me know how it go's or if i can give any more detailed info

I take it that you have watched many hours of 4x3 video on this 16x9 TV . What you see is evidence of screen burn, like they used to warn about with the old "pong" type games with stationary objects. The 4x3 pattern is burned into the phosphor in the projection tubes. the area of the burned pattern is not as efficient as the unused areas that make up the 16x9. If you watch enough 16x9 it may even out somewhat, but will never be perfect. Replacing the tubes will fix it, but they're pricey, and you may be subject to it happening again, depending on your viewing habits.
