Question about RCA Scenium HD65W20 65" Rear Projection Television
My 65" Scenium was purchased for about $3000 in 2002 and worked great for a while. But, within 2 years it blew a capacitor (thank God it was still under warranty). Then in OCT of 2007 it's picture froze on the screen one night. No response from the remote control or switches on front control panel. Had to unplug it, but then it wouldn't turn on at all (except I could hear 1 of the cooling fans power up. I let it sit for a couple days still plugged in. Then for some reason I decided to press the power on button and it came on! Worked fine for 2 weeks. Then it died again. It has not recovered this time and it's been a month. Still have one fan that turns on. Two different repair men have looked at it and say it needs to checked out at their shop with more sophisticated equipment. I have been told that the DirectTV box is a big problem with these sets and you may not be able to acquire the part(s) to fix it, or the part costs around $800. Not worth it. Can't believe an expensive set like this only lasts 5 years. RCA / Thomson is not a brand I will be doing business with in the future.
Thee is a fuse near the power plug-in it's a 6amp 125 v ....make sure you bring the fuse with you..will solve the off problem

If you changed all 3 CRT's at the same time you are in for alot of alignment. If all 3 need to be replaced then 2 should be replaced then aligned to the remaing original then replace the last after all alignment is done. You will probably need some kind of template provided by RCA to do alignment especially if the set has auto convergence. Good luck....
