Question about RCA 32V420T 32" TV

1 Answer

RCA Home Theatre System 51 or 52"? Chassis # PTK169PAAS

We have acquired this TV and the 3 colors are shadowing. Everything seems to work fine except for this. Given the chassis number, can you help us out? Toting thing to the repair place would be a great adventure in itself. It has to justify itself with me real quick, as my husband has it planted in the middle of the living room while he works on it. Any heads up would be appreciated. Thanks! PS: Here are some other numbers on the tag: Model #P46770CK, Serial #413480469

If it is a "minor" convergence problem you can adjust it by going to the menu and scrolling to convergence and follow prompts A cross will appear when you have reached the correct place and you do the minor adjustments as it says. If picture is bowed you have major convergence problems.

Connect external sound system to Prima tv

There is sound coming from the tv speakers though? I had the same problem with my top of the line 7 channel surround sound theatre system. Its not that there is anything wrong with the sound system but that you may need to plug the Audio cord into the external device IE: cable box. Mine works strictly for the dvd function of my system because of this.

Color Alignment

the most common problem when the tv felt is the shadows all over the screen (maybe the tv didnt show it imm but looks like now is there the problem)
second:there is a circuit in the tv that works when the tv turns on every day. prevents the tv showing shadows on the screen.
the answer is this: if that system that prevents shadowing is working then the CRT is broken and say bye to the TV. But if the expert tech can make sure the D' gauss system is not working and can repair it then you get tv back.

Get an ESR meter and check all the electrolytic capacitors in the set! I am sure you will find many decoupler and coupling capacitors that are on the edge or too high in ESR.

If it is truly a 52 inch standard projection set (you have it listed under 32V420T which is not a projection TV) and your 3 colors (red, green and blue) are no longer lining up and are all curved on the sides, then it means that your convergence power supply has stopped working. Post the actual model and chassis number and a better description of the picture here and I will be able to assist you further.

Turns on and off

You have a shutdown problem. The 3 times is a "3 strikes and your out" RCA feature that says there is something latching the set up. You will have to have a technician look at it. In this case it might not be worth it.
