Question about RCA R52WM24 52" HDTV Projection Television

1 Answer

Loose UHF connector

The UHF connector on the back of my TV is loose and leaking cable waves so the cable company tells me. Is there anyway to tighten it? It is a big screen and hard to take anywhere to get repaired.

That connector is just press-fit into a metal shield around the set's tuner. It's commonly broken loose by overtightening the cable connection or tripping over the cable and yanking on it. In bad cases it can be broken completely off the set. It really doesn't "leak" anything but can cause a poor picture and allow interference to get in.

The connector can be soldered back into place with the aid of a suitable-size soldering gun. You should be able to find a TV servicer who still makes house calls. With labor and trip charge, I'd guesstimate around $100. The shop I worked for got $72 for this repair, and that was nearly 10 years ago. It is also possible for do-it-yourselfers to make this repair if they have the soldering skills. But even if you pay someone it's still less than the cost of a new set.

No picture on coby tv


I'm not certain but it sounds like there is a loose video cable in there...if you are able to, take the tv apart, and literally push on all of the connectors and cables to make sure they are not loose. The main video cable may not seem to be loose, but once it is making contact again, it should clear that mess up. Just look for cables running to the main screen and pull them off and put them back. Then put the tv back together again and see if it worked...it usually does. why does this happen? Some blame it on dust, others blame it on quick manufacturing processes...whatever the case, the cables become slightly seperated from the controller board and that happens...it also happens to computer monitors too...Good luck and take your time. If there are a lot of screws and things either take pictures of where they all went or write it down. I like to make a diagram on a piece of paper and tape the screws on the diagram to show where they went.

Little white dots on the screen


Your cables to your TV are loose. You must have a firm fitting on the RF connector. You may also have a loose connections from the vcr to the TV [in some cases your vcr is on as well, creating these dot s you refer to.] Or loose fitting from the satellite/cable box to the TV. A firm fitting is call a good ground. You will need to check these and tighten these without breaking the connections to the tuner[RF connector]. Many of the coaxial cables you use are the slide on and are not the best to fit! Good Luck and show a few hands of support and thanks for asking!

Back brake wire is loose how can we tighten it? (360 degrees brakes)


Loosen the screw on the brake (usually an allen wrench) where the cable goes through. As you loosen the cable will come loose. Pull the cable tight (not too tight) with a pair of pliers and while holding tighten the screw back on. You can now make minor adjustments with the barrel connector near the brake lever hood (where the cable comes out of the hand brake lever).

Waves


Hi hoovs, Waves streaming normally comes from the 60 cycles hum of the AC mains. Sometimes this is caused by poor or loose grounding in the video cable or at times a weak or defective capacitor in the power supply of the monitor or at times low voltage supply to the monitor. If after checking your cables (both power and video) are not loose and are snugly fitted to their connection points and you still get the waves, then you are probably better off returning the unit for replacement. Another thing you can check is if the monitor is getting enough power. If the monitor's power supply is rated 100~240 VAC, then it should work out ok. If it's got a 240 rating and you are using it in 110, then the monitor is not getting enough juice which may cause the waves. On rare occasion, waves may be eliminated by simply plugging in the AC plug of your monitor the other way around. Hope this be of some help to you. Pls post again how things turn up. Kind regards.
