Question about RCA 46 46LA45RQ LCD TV

2 Answers

I have a 46'' RCA LCD TV With Dark Spot covering about 30% of screen

Covering about 30% of the screeen. You can still see the color but its like having problems displaying the color white. I bought the TV brand new about 4 years ago. Immediately after purchase I mounted it to the wall and didnt have any problems until I took it off the wall and brought it into my room. I noticed that after you leave it on for about 45-1hr it snapps back to normal and looks great again but as soon as you turn it off and it cools down its all dark again. Im a fairly tech saavy and have all the right tools and would like to fix it myself if I could properly diagnose it. Any help would be great!

Try replacing the backlight panel longboard. Make sure you order the proper board number (code #). The board is cheap (about $25.00). Buy the board from ShopJimmy, great parts store! Good Luck! Remember : Do What the Pro's Do - Replace, Replace, Replace. There are only three boards total!

It is ultra hard to fix broken LCD sectors unless you have a micro-shop intrusion tool. The fastest and most direct way to fix this is to purchase another LCD screen, which will cost about half if not more than the original purchase.

I just replaced bulb with new and after a day there is a dark spot on the screen


I have the same TV - I have a dark spot in the upper left hand corner. I have always thought this TV was dark. Be sure to get OME lamp. Cheaper ones are not worth it and can damage your TV more.
dlplampsource,com--Just a note if this ever happens to you. TV would not come on in the AM-Had no picture, but had sound. It was not the lamp, but the safety switch. It's blue and at the bottom of the lamp housing. As soon as I flipped it and replaced the back cover, the TV came on.
