Fadeing of picture RCA P52937

Sounds like it could be your bulb going bad I would check some places like or and see if they have your bulb is in stock it may not be to cheap but i beats buying a TV. I would direct you to the manufacturer but they probably have stopped supporting this type of tv.

TV made a big popping sound, and then a crackling

Hi,do you hear any strange noises? If you hear clicking or like wanting to turn on it could be the board that powers the lamp it's called the ballast.Here's the instructions to replace it : That crackling sound could be of the color wheel:The color wheel is a rotating disc that has a gamma of colors it spins at high rpms.The light of the lamp goes through it to create the colors on your tv.When it starts to go bad you will get color distortion ,black and white picture and sometimes you will hear humming noises. But if you don't hear any strange noises,tv is around 6000 hrs,2-4 yrs it could be time to replace the lamp.The lamp you need is BP9601073A you can find original here: .Have a blessed one!

This problem is caused by a faulty Convergence amp. This amp keeps all three colors aligned together and square on the screen. It could also be the power supply section that supplies power to this amp.
A local TV shop should be able to repair this for you for about $350

Well in case you didn't get an answer somewhere else the part making the noise is called the color wheel and has a motor that spins it at a high rpm. When they go bad they squeal real loud. You're looking at maybe $300-400 to fix parts and labor.

Arc or hump on bottom left of tv and color is faded bad.

Your convergence Ic's have gone bad. Most likely a few small resistors with them. It's really not a job you should try and takle if you haven't done it before. Not a major deal for a svc co.

Color blinkig in and out.

It seems like the color wheel might start to fail.
Do you hear any abnormal sound(s) from the TV when ramdon color appears.
Would you be able to check and make sure all the fans are working properly?
