RCA R52WH73 Problem

I just bought this tv last January and now the remote control has magically vanished from my house. Working with no remote I use the power and volume buttons on the tv. The other day when I turned the tv on I noticed the screen was chopping the news anchors heads off. On the remote I now how to formatt the screen to fit the screen, but also to move it up or down to to customize. Is there any way that I can do this on the tv it self without the remote?

Re: RCA R52WH73 Problem

Unfortunately the functions you require are only available via the remote. Also a replacement remote isn't cheap averaging about $85-150 each and most of the time RCA only supplies universal replacements that only cover the basic function of the origional.

I replaced the FL231 fuse on my RCA HD52W66 it works ok now but, my remote is...

FL231. FUSE.... The RCA ITC222 chasis has a common problem. and it not all that difficult to repair. Does your rca projection tv have read blue and green shadows? Does it have bowing in affect on the top and bottom of picture? when you turn it on does some thin red green and blue line bow in from the top then go away. The main question to determine if you have the fl231 fuse problem is if you go into customer menu then setup do you have the "CONVERGENCE' option. If you do not. then i suspect you have this problem. In the manufactering of these sets Lead free solder is used. now there is great debate over the use of lead free. connection tend to be more brittle. cracks develop around the solder connections of the high voltage flyback transformer. this very small crack set up oscillations in the cuicit with a 400 milliamp fuse. THis fuse cant take it. When this fuse blows the processor then does not know its a projection tv with three projection tubes. it thinks its a crt tube tv. and crt tube tv dont need "convergence" so it removes the convergence from the set.

TO REPAIR... 1. Warning. this set can generate leathal dangerous voltages even unplug do not attempt if you have no experence with electronics.
2. Remove the back. there a number of torx 20 screws.
3. what you will see is a number of circit boards There will be one on the right and one on the left. the one on the right is the small signal board. the one on the left is called the power deflection board. it has a large black part with a big red or black wire coming from the top, this is the flyback.Next to the flyback on the right of it there will be three small rectangular componets tan or brown in color. these are fuses. the one in the middle is the fl231 fuse.
4. getting to this fuse can be difficult. these two cuicit boards sit on a tray that is removable. to remove this tray it is pulled out and up. BUt watch the wires.loosen the wire tyes.
5 when you get the tray up the bottom side of the board can be accessed
you will now have to unsolder that fuse. one side of this fuse is under a plastic part of the tray. i have found the easest way is to cut away the plastic to get to it. if you dont want to do this you will have to remove the board. only remove half of the plastic brace
7 RESOLDER FLYBACK CONNECTIONS simply heat up and add a little solder
8 reassemble set. make sure you examine the set for loose connections.
9 and remember "BE Careful'

Audio is processed on the small signal board. It may be the audio output or you may need to replace the small signal board if you have noticed the sett shutting off evry once in a while. The small signal board having problems is very famous in RCA ITC222 and the ITC222A series.

We have a large screen RCA model #R52WH73 TV. We bought it new about 2 years ago. Today when I turned it on...the picture looks concave and has shadows. Help?

the ITC222 and ITC222a Convergence option missing repair kit from should solve that issue. The kit also contains the CD with instructions.
