Question about RCA HD52W56 52" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Gateway 26" hdtv (flat panal)

This set was purchased about 4-5 yrs. ago, when the local Gateway store closed.
I am not able to turn it on and our local repair shop states that I need a new power card too the repair cost of over $400.00 including labor.
Is there anything I can try or replace myself?
Also, there is occasionaly a faint green stripe that appears down the center of the screen but it is not bad enough to affect viewing. I just thought I would mention it.

Sony KDS-R50XBR1 /(2005) Red stand-by light blinks 4 times.Tried new bulb (Philips) 1 week ago ,same problem as before .Whole new light engine replaced two yrs ago by sony.What happens is it will turn off...

The error code of 4 blinks indicate a fan problem.the fan is slowing or internitantly stoping. the fan is stallling. or the fans not getting power. Always rember anything that moves will eventally stop. this fan is on all the time. also there more than one fan. Listen closely to hear the fan. The fan is not difficult or exspensive repair.

Several years ago we purchased a Philips 60" Rear

It seems problem with convergence output section of tv and convergence output ICs need to be replaced by professional because it requires soldering work with proper tools.
Please call local tv repair shop to get tv repaired.

Distorted picture

Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.

The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded overs. To get fixed either call in a local TV repair company or goto sites such as Tv Repair Kits to get a repair kit with instructions. Here is there link.

They have put together complete kits for most models that include the parts, step by step photo instructions, repair assistance, etc.

I purchased my Sony kds r50xbr1 about (4) yrs ago. Within the last month, the picture has a slight green hue to it. Could this be a symptom of the bulb life expiring?

I have the same problem it's the optical block going bad. Most expensive part in the TV. Repair cost $850 - $1200. Big Sony class action law suit against Sony. Settled out of court with extended warranties to June of 2009. I just called them and I am getting a run around. Recently offered to sell me another set at a discounted price but it's taking a month to get it replaced. They are in no hurry to respond at this point.

3rd lamp purchased within 2 yrs

There is a slight chance that you might have an issue with a defective ballast, I mean 3 lamps in 2 years, it's too much. The best way to go here is replacing the ballast, that might solve the issue.

IF your model is the 55PW9363 those resistors should be 6.8 ohms like the other ones. i would put in the ones the service manual lists as those other resistors may have been close but burned out causing the ICs to be over worked.

Rear Projection Gateway HDTV with DLP,56"

witzend, hate to be the bearer of bad news but he`s probably talking about the light engine and those dam things run 650-1150 just for the part, also, the last I knew the Samsung engines had been on national back order for the last 10-12 weeks, ( tells you something doesn`t it ) It`s ridiculous that you have to buy the whole light engine to get a new color wheel but that`s the way they do it, good luck, BMW Rider
