Question about RCA D52W20 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

Picture Becoming Fuzzy

Noticed about 2 weeks ago the picture becoming fuzzy, expressly when changing channels and the channel menu flashes the channel at the bottom. I first I thought it was my glasses. This Tv is less than 5 years old, has been working great up to this point. Is it time for a new set or can this problem be corrected? Thanks

    The picture quality of my RCA rear projection HDTV looks washed out and fuzzy too. I've tried adjusting, colors, covergence etc, but have not been able to correct he problem. Is it possible the mirror/optics is dirty? Where can I get instructions on how to clean?

That can be a problem in these sets. Did you buy an extended warranty? I did. From Circuit City for 4 years and I am glad I did. Had a main board replaced in home already. And as of yesterday my tube was starting to go. So I am now waiting to see if they will just give me a brand new TV. All at no cost.

The mirror may be dirty but unless you are a smoker or have a lot of dust I doubt it. If you are a smoker then that might be a problem. The giant mirror on the inside might be dirty. The front clear cover comes off with screws around the edges - quite a bit of them. then the screen - check to see if it is dirty when you take it off. Then you should be able to see the mirror in the back. It might be dirty. Be careful not to get and particles on your tubes. They will show up on screen when you watch them. If everything is OK and not dirty then you are screwed and might need new tube. you will have to call tech.

Fuzzy picture


Sounds like an AGC [Automatic Gain Control] problem with its video IF stage circuit. Contact any service technician, or service center. This is not a user repairable fault.

When using cable input video is good but sound has fuzzy static


Your TVs tuner tuned a little off frequency. It could be as simple as having cable box on where you have good picture but fuzzy sound, use the TVs remote to change the channel and then change it back to proper channel. If that doesn't fix you may have wrong tuning type selected in channel set up menu.

One channel fuzzy


Tis is an ongoing problem I seen increase alot over the past few months. From what I can gather, all the channels being broadcast over going from the analog to digital, there's no big suprise to anyone. However, the change from analog to digital is changing at a faster rate, so when you look at the TV some channels will be fine and others will have grey lines, fuzzy picture. The only solution-you need a TV with some kind of digital tuner. On the TV itself if the (TV has one) it will say "SD" or "ED" which stands for standard digital or enhanced digital.

Poor screen resolution and unable to get channel guide.


The channel guide is a service just like closed caption. Rumer has it that it's not going to be around for much longer. The only fix is to unplug set ..wait awhile till memory loss occurs...plug back up and do a setup. Nothing in the TV will cause partial guide. Weak signal could and cause fuzzy picture too. Complain to cable company. But brightness problem is something else.
