Question about RCA D44LPW134 44" HDTV

1 Answer

Picture format changing

We have had this tv for 2-3 years now with constant issues. Bad buy but we're stuck with it now. The current problem is the picture changing formats apparently randomly from 16:9 to cinerama to 4:3 and back again. I can't connect it to anything we are seems to be a short someplace that makes it jump like this. Any ideas?

Re: picture format changing

I think that that tv is equipped with an "autotformat" feature there should a setting in the menu to change that option. check owners manual.

I have a Mitsubishi WD-52525 television, purchased in Jan 2004, and have had various issues with the set since purchased. When the set was first purchased, it took three different deliveries to get a set...

Buy a new set - not a Mitsubishi DLP. I've repaired 3 sets at the board level.
Many, many bad capacitors on four boards, 12 hours to repair.
If a tech replaces one board, he is only fixing one of 4 bad boards and the set will soon fail again.

My Sony Grand Wega LCD TV currently has a large blue spot on the left side of the screen when powered on. I have changed the lamp, but this did not solve the problem. Could this be caused by bad component...

I'm afraid, it is problem of optics unit block (light engine), there are 3 LCDs red-green-blue for color picture formation and blue LCD sounds bad, please call local TV tech for fix.

Tv turns on w/pic then pic dissapears light blinks 4 times

I have the same issue, we've had to change our bulb three times in less than two years. now we have 61" expensive paper weight. Our current bulb is less than 6 months old. The TV is only 2 years old and like i said this is our third bulb.

the blue light blinks 4 times. you get sound. then a few minutes the the picture returns... then it goes out, and the cycle goes on.

A solution to this would be greatly appreciated.

Dark Color on TV. Can't adjust the color correctly

Having same problem now for a second time on a 57T500. First time was a bad green bulb that was covered under warranty. Only lasted 2 years....currently debating wether to fix or buy a new set. Bulbs cost about $300. Set is only 5 years old, so very dissapointed with quality.
