Why is the picture on my RCA tv goes slowly darker as i watch it?


Contact any service technician. Its CRT base connector socket, or, LOT is faulty. This is not a user repairable fault. Replacement to any one among component stated above, or both, might need replacement. Gopakumar Gopalan Google

Rca projection tv


The white dots indicate a problem with the optical light engine---Parts for this set are very expensive and my suggestion would be NOT to repair it but replace it.

If you want some more information Google the model with "problems" to see what the common issues are fot this set

I have an rca 61" dlp tv that is about 4 years


More than likely you have a power board that is failing. Since the TV is so old I doubt it is under warranty still. I estimate it would cost you anywhere between $300-400 to repair that problem so it may be time to switch to a newer LCD TV.

Tv turns on w/pic then pic dissapears light blinks 4 times


I have the same issue, we've had to change our bulb three times in less than two years. now we have 61" expensive paper weight. Our current bulb is less than 6 months old. The TV is only 2 years old and like i said this is our third bulb.

the blue light blinks 4 times. you get sound. then a few minutes the the picture returns... then it goes out, and the cycle goes on.

A solution to this would be greatly appreciated.

Both of my headlights burned out about the same time a year and a half ago. I then replaced a few months ago, now the other one blew. It seems that these two lights both burned out too soon. Possible...


I've got a 2001 Elantra that "eats" headlights. Within the last five years, I've probably replaced both headlights 10-15 times. Last time I bought bulbs, the clerk at the Auto Zone recommended coating the connection points of the bulbs in electrical grease (which is different than regular grease). It's usually sold in small foil packages at the check-outs. Anyway, this seemed to prolong the life of the bulbs by 3-4 times. It's a cheap fix that didn't completely solved the problem, but sure cut down on the number of bulb replacements.

Blue Screen w/Flashing light in the middle echoing out to edge


Good Day, you all;

This TV has many problems......at least three boards and many parts on each PCB..... most places charge between $750.00 to $1,200.00 to repair. So, I will let you be the judge if it is worth it. Get an estimate from an authorized service center be fore making final decision.

If you can repair yourself I will be glad to give you the info.....it takes an experience tech about 3 hours to repair.

Good Luck, big IRISH.

Panasonic rear projection TV 47 in PT 47WX49


Camaroguy: This exact problem happened to us about 8 months ago. A board had to be replaced at a cost of $500. Yesterday, the convergence has gone on the set. You get a blue and yellow shadow on the picture. From what I have been reading, this has happened on a few TVs and it will cost another $500 or so. We refuse to pour more money down the drain so we just went out and bought a new plasma (RCA) for half what it cost us for the Panasonic 4 years ago. We have never had a problem with RCA in the past (two tvs for 20 years a piece).

Loose Picture (Goes completely Black)


Nothing special about that board as I cant seem to find that # but If my memory serves me correctly it sounds like a crt board and its a simple soldering job on the crt socket?? Altough Im not there to see the set still 550.00 seems like an awfull lot to repair a set even if they have to replace the entire chassis. I think you should cal rca and take it to an authorized RCA repair center and if the shop you took it to was an rca authorized center I would also report that to them(RCA). Good Luck
