Question about Televison & Video

RCA r52wh74 My screen now looks like a 3d movie with out the glasses. A technician came out an told me it was my power converter and wanted $300 to fix. If I can find some where to buy the part I can do it myself. Where can UI locate a parts break down for this model I have the same 3d thing going on. I was trying to figure out where in the back of the TV this part is located. I had the extended warrenty on my TV....but Smart Plan doesn't have anyone to send to fix it in my area. If I can fix it myself..that would be great! I looked in the back of the TV and don't immediately see anything that looks like the part you referenced for the other person-- STK392-150. Can you tell me where it is located on this RCA model R52wh74? Thanks!!!

    Part of the post that I sent included some of the posting that I was reading when I replied...not sure how that happened. I didnt get anyone to come out here because like I said...Smart Plan didnt have anyone that could come and fix my TV even though I had the extended warrenty. But it sounds like its not possible for me to fix on my own. I have never soldered anything in my life :) I just thought it might be something that plugs into the tv's guts somehwere that I could replace myself.

Hi the problem you are having is a common one dont know what the repair bloke told you but your problem is with the convergance ic their are two of them located inside your telly the are located on two metal heatsinks sticking up out of the board the parts start with stk they might have a clip round them holfing them onto the heatsink these need removing to see the part number.
When you get the part number google it and it will locate the people who sells them part numbers for you these parts are not user repairable they should only be replaces by a pro as when you solder them in you cant let them overhear as this will blow the ics again but if you are confident in doing the repair then you will need a multimeter as well to check any resistors that might have also blown ok if you need further assistance let me know ok

    Oh just one more thing if you cant locate the part inside your telly then you will need to download the schematics so use something like ask.com and type in
    schematics for then give make and model number this should then locate the schematics for you the schem will also give you test points on the circuit board to test for any faults so have a look for this ok this should be what you locate first as following the schematics will save you loads of time locating the faults

    H no these parts need soldering and if you dont disperse the heat from the solder you could blow the chips whilst soldering them in so its best left to someone who has done this before

Ineed a code for tv converter box,What would the code be for a tv converter box ?


Different brand converter box will have differen tset-up codes. Set-up (Programming) procedure is too much to type in here, and is not practical and it will differ brand-to-brand remote controls. If you wish to get more; check the sites linked here. The site has set-up code list & set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. The site has general set-up codes to check with TVs and other devices are given, in the order of the 'device's brand name list' in alphabetical order. Set-up code list to many brand remote controls also is given. Pull up older posts. Search the sites by type in the brand name to your device in its search box at the top right part of the display window. It will help you to find the document easily.

Programming Notes
• If your device does not respond to the remote after trying all codes listed or your brand is not listed in the code list, use the Auto Code Search method to program your remote.
• Sometimes the first code that "works" with your device may operate only a few functions of your device. There may be another code in the code list that performs more functions. Try other codes from the code list for more functionality.
This is a trial and error procedure; and quiet time consuming. You might have to check different codes said for your device.

Before going further; try a hard reset first. If it does not help you, replace the main digital board. There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; visit the site linked here.

Samsung plasma TV model #pn42b400p3dxza problem with no image. The TV has sound but no image. I've tried using other components on the TV like RCA jacks with a separate TV digital tuner. Thank you


The main power supply regulator section circuit fault. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device; in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.
Check whether Va & Vs voltage come to the display panel, from the main power supply regulator board. If not, the SMPS board [power supply regulator board] is faulty.

Hello, The Original remote quit working, So I bought a RCA universal remote control RCR314WZ. I need the code for (DTA800B1 B1L) converter box. so the remote will control it


Some RCA universal remotes list STB codes but you can try using code search to find something that can handle some or all functions. If a search through all codes contained in the remote does not succeed, you may have to try a different universal remote. All universal remotes do not contain all possible codes.

I have an RCA model LED42C45RQ with a blank screen. I have audio, no back lights, but I can see a picture on the screen with the flashlight test. What do you recommend replacing? Thanks


Back - light problem. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced. To some models of sets, all these section circuit will be integrated at its main board. If this is the case, you have to replace the main board.

How could I connect a Daewoo 42sm TV?, I can't afford cable so I use a converter box(analog to digital w/rabbit antenna)on my other TV and I was given this Daewoo TV and would like to watch it;please


If your converter box only has RF outpit connectors "F" type screw on it looks like this my be more of a monitor then tv.I took a quick look at the manual and didn't see any RF inputs so it appears it doesn't have tuners built in Looks like you'll need a box that has RCA output connectors.or others that will match what the monitor has on it for input types
