Question about RCA HD52W59 HDTV Projection Television

1 Answer

Hd52w59 Approximately 18 months after purchasing this tv it went blurry. I called an authorized repairman and he was not exactly sure how to fix it but he moved something and the picture was better but still not quite right. He said it might need some part replaced so I decided to have it replaced. The picture was a little better but not nearly as clear as it used to be. About 2 months after that the tv just turned off and would not turn back on. When I called the repairman again, he said it could be anything. I wanted to know if it would be worth putting more money into it as I had already paid out over $200. He said maybe not, that I may just need to invest in a new set. So here I am out $1000 +tax plus the $200 in 18 months. Has anyone had this same trouble and had it fixed? Any advise? Thanks.

    I had the same problem with my television. It went off one morning and it has not came back on since. The repair man told me that it was a deadset, and then when I called the warranty company back about it they had told me that the repair company said it was "CUSTOMER ABUSE", which was not the fact about it. I have only had the television for almost two years only. There has never been any abuse done too my television. The repair company did not tell me anything about abuse neither.

    I bought this RCA 52" also like 22 months ago but it that period it has soemtimes shut off with out any explanation and then I would hae to wait for a while for it to be able to start again. I barely use this TV, maybe a few hours a day and some days I don't even turn it on. The biggest problem started a few weeks ago when I started seeing like 3D images. I tried to adjust the Auto Convergence which helped somewhat but it stills gives me that 3d image. I have no clue what else to do but I'm afraid that if I have this fixed, I will continue to have more problems. Bottom line, I will never ever purchase any RCA products or worse recommend them. Very dissapointed. I have other brand of TV's that are up to 10 years old and I have never once even touched these tv's in any way to fix them. I truly regret purchasing this brand and somehow I believe that RCA knows the bad quality and issues these TV's have!

Screen is almost black and figures wavy. set is only 4 months old.

Before calling a repairman, check the menu, if you see the problem on the menu then the set needs servicing, if not try one of the other inputs to make sure it is not the tv source that is causing your problem.

I don't want to go into details for you to fix it because if it is only 4 months old, you need to call for service. These tv's are all board replacement and are expensive to fix even on your own. Since it is in warranty defiantly get a sony authorized repair service to repair the set, the owner’s manual will have sony's phone number in it call them to get a service scheduled.

Sony also has an on-line tool to find a service center here

TV Won't Turn On

Are you from US or Canada? I'm Panasonic authorized and allways Pana covered the warranty after 1 month from the expire date. Call Panasonic Viera service and tell them the story. I'm sure you'll get refound.
Anyway, a horizontal line doesn't mean the PDP is defective. It's one scan IC burned on the SU or SD board (depend where the line is). We allways replaced the SC bord each time SU or SD got burned. If after SD and SC replacement it still defective...yes the PDP has one scan line in short.
Call Viera and insist to get warranty. Let me know. Good luck!
