RCA 56 inch TV; model# P56938; service# P56938YX2

I bought a RCA 56 inch TV (model # P56938), from an individual about 20 miles from my residence. While transporting the TV in the back of my truck, the wind caused the outer screen (the kind that doesn't leave fingerprints), to rip into pieces. The TV still works good, but without that top screen, the picture has a very bright red, green, and blue lights shining in it. Where can I get a new screen for it? Approximately how much does this screen cost? And how do I fix this?

    I had almost the exact same thing happen. Except the model no. is P56926. I believe the outer screen assembly part no. is 240945.

    Can't find that screen. It is called a Lenticular. The frame pops off and looks pretty simple to install...trouble is...I can't find the screen because the company has discontinued the model. Seems that they would at least have replacement parts for this model.

The lines you saw, i;m sure they are the ones called retrace lines but know the failure could be located on the red CRT board. Most likely the video amplifier is defective and not necessarily the CRT.
What is the model number of your TV?

may i suggest reading the ariticle the fl231 problem in my tips and tricks section of my profile. YOu MAY have a 5 dollars 30 minuter fix. Determine if you have the convergence option under the setup option of the customer menu. if you dont then congratulations you have a simple fix. i you do have the convergence option and the autoconvergence then you might have other problems. and will have to troubleshoot further. If so ill talk you through some more. THIS set has NO stk convergence ics. my feeling is the fl231 which i see alot on this perticlar model at the shop

My rca model d56w20 56 inch tv wont turn on

Usually its the CP150, CP120 and the CP114 capacitors that will cause that symptom. You can get the RCA repair kit by that same name from which does include the repair instructions.

Good Day;

The RCA TV uses a different type of Convergence Circuit then most other TV's. There is A fuse next to the FLY BACK that opens that can cause this. If not handy call an Authorized Service Center, get an estimate. Cost avg $400.00 to $650.00 depending on your location and problem.

Good Luck, big IRISH.

Tv is acting on its own

Most likely your problem is the remote sensor inside the TV set. The remote sensor is located on the front panel board or inside the reflective cavity somewhere around the secondary mirror. Good Luck
