Re: RCA big screen has gone crazy!

Sounds to me like you may have a cold solder joint in a board ( loose lead on the pc board ) or you might have a b ad eeprom causing the problem. You may need to replace the main board. Also another sitution I have come across is a stuck button on the tuning strip board ( the board/switches that change channels, volume etc ) on the tv. maybe also since the remote sensor is light senative, it may be in the line of the sun ( cover the ir senor on the front of the tv to illaminate that problem ). Good Luck and if you the suggestions don't correct the problem. email me at or continue with this at this address. Good Luck

Only one input works (component1) but no sound. the speakers are on, and when the volume is turned all the way up you here noise. input or no

make sure whatever you are hooking up to the input has a good output. Meaning....if you are hooking up a dvd player and it is playing a disc, make sure it has audio out of the dvd player usually the red for right channel and white for left channel. Also make sure in the menu on the dvd player you have analog audio selected so as to have sound coming thur to the tv. Keep in mind another way to check the audio of the tv is to use a mp3 player or your iphone.. Just need 1/8" jack from iphone to red and white RCA male jacks to hook to tv to test. Hope this gets you closer to solving your problem.

RCA 52 is los the configuration after a blackout.

One or more of the buttons on the front of the set is bad. Best thing is to take the front panel off. About eight TORX T-20 screws from the back to get the speaker grille and panel off, then three more on the front and the whole panel with the button assembly will come off. Simplest fix is to just pull the plug off and disconnect the button assembly. the remote will still work.

Yes. Its probably a stuck button on the TV's front panel. Try pushing or wiggling each button on the panel. It could be the channel up/down buttons or volume up/down, menu, etc.

When there is a button that is making slight contact, it keeps the microprocessor busy attending to the command its erroneously receiving from the offending button and may not allow other functions to work when this occurs.

It doesn't matter which button is stuck, any of the symptoms you describe can happen.

I was tring to remove the concave off my screen and came across a setting where you can make the picture larger or smaller. On the TV, not the remote, press and hold the menu button, press and release the power button, press and release the volume up button and release the menu button. P0 and V0 will be displayed on the screen press the volume up button until the V0 is V76. Press the channel up button until P0 is P11 and press the volume up/down button to make the picture larger/smaller. If you need to center the picture press the channel down button until P11 is P10 and press the volume up/down button to center your picture. I hope this helps

Cannot operate tv manually or with remote

may have a corrupted eeprom which means you`ll have to call a tech, one thing you can try is;
Un-plug the tv`s AC power cord, wait 30 seconds, plug back in and pray, this will set re-set the micro to the default mode which may have gotten glitched by a power surge, hope it works for you.
