That's the best way I can describe it...I have tried replacing the 3-way RCA jack, used a different input location, replaced the cable connectors to the wall plates...any ideas?

Tv has a picture,but not sound,but a popping sound

Is there no sound on any of your inputs? If you don't know, then try hooking up equipment to all of the different inputs. If only some of them don't give sound, then it may just be the input jacks themselves, or even the controllers used to send those signals to the main processors.
If you have absolutely no sound on any channel/input, then the main audio controllers are likely open/shorted/fried, or the main connections are open/shorted/fried.

When using over the air antenna, picture is unstable. When using any of the RCA jacks, no signal is received. Is there somthing specific that can cause this?

On the signal board there is 4 surface mount transistors. There is one right by the input board (BA09), i would check the corresponding caps and diodes close to it also. I would replace all of the 4 transistors. If this SMT starts to go you will see wavy lines in your picture than it will go away in 3 min or so and get worse over time until no picture is seen. When it totally fails you will have no inputs what soever but you will have an OSD screen and when you choose DTV you will get a scrolling picture.

RCA D52130 52 in. Won't Display High Def

I doubt you'll look at this 2 years later, or even have the T.V.

I have the same TV and was able to view ps3 and xbox 360 games in 1080i, but it's a little tricky. First, let me say that the ps3 is probably not the best system to try using 1080i in unless you have a 360 to help trick the tv into working.

Xbox 360
You need to first set the video to 1080i. This will make the screen display in a bunch of horizontal lines most of the time, but if you keep toggling it on and off, it eventually works. To avoid having to sit and swap between the two modes, it's easier to first set it to 1080i and confirm the setting, then go back into the settings, select 720 (first option above 1080i) and cancel as soon as the video mode changes. 95% of the time this will make it display correctly in 1080i mode. If you turn the tv off and back on, it will sometimes reset to the horizontal lines. If you restart the xbox, it will reset to horizontal lines most of the time. With the ps3, you can set it to 1080i and keep toggling it until it works, but when the game launches it can screw up again, so it's best to have the xbox on and ready with a component switch so you can fix it with the xbox then switch back to the ps3. I think the cable that comes with the tv for HD input (the component plugs don't work, they only support 480, but the vga looking input supports 1080i) - the cable is just poor quality and can barely handle the signal. I've been trying to find a better quality cable with no luck.

Hope this helps other people with this ancient beta HD input canadian tvness.

How to connect surround sound system, at the moment its connected through cable, each time we use the dvd player we have take them out of the cable box then into the dvd player, we have a LG 42PC55 tv.

In order of picture and sound quality -- from best to worst:

1. The best way to connect, assuming your TV and A/V Receiver and/or Cable Box have the jacks, is to use a HDMI cable ( this cable is for both sound and video).

2. Use Component Video out to input (3 RCA plugs, Red, Blue & Green) along with RCA Audio out to input (2 RCA plugs for stereo - 1 for mono).

3. Use S-Video out to input (1 din plug) along with RCA Audio out to input (2 RCA plugs for stereo - 1 for mono).

4. Use Video out to input (1 RCA plug, yellow) along with RCA Audio out to input (2 RCA plugs for stereo - 1 for mono).

Be sure to select the correct inputs on your TV and Audio/Video receiver when you are watching TV. For example if you have connected your TV to HDMI 1 and DVD to HDMI 2, you will not see or hear anything if you don't select the correct input on your TV and A/V receiver for the input you want to see and hear.

Detailed connection instructions will be found in your owners' manuals.

Hope this helped you. :)

Unable to watch DVD's on this TV

Your DVD player may be set up to put out a different mode. Are you using the component cables or s-video? If it's the component cables, make sure you're player is putting out 480p. Also, try it with another set to see of you can localize the problem.
