Question about RCA D44LPW134 44" HDTV

1 Answer

Preparing for transport

I an considering buying a D44LPW134 (used) from an acquaintance of my wife. 2-3 years old, $650 seems a fair price. I've not owned a rear projection TV, so not sure about preparing to move it. Is there some procedure to "park" the mirrors for transport?

STOP! DON'T BUY IT! These RCA (and all) DLP's are JUNK! You will, at the least, end up paying 100's of dollars in new bulbs, which you have to replace after they burn out and at the most up to $1000 or more to fix the ballast, the light engine, the board, the power supply...DON'T DO IT! Do a google search for RCA products and DLP in general and read the horror stories! Mine is one of them... You have been warned!

Plug on tv model# d44lpw134 was not all the way in and cable wire fell on plug and caused a spark and now tv will not turn on

You can test a fuse if it is open with an ohm meter or you can look, inside the glass to see if the wire is broken.

How is this tv someone is trying to sell me it for 700 dollars is it worth it?

JVC DLP TVs are great TVS but I would not recommend purchasing a DLP TV used, nor would I pay $700 for a used TV!
The most I would pay for that TV would be about $300 as long as the lamp has been replaced within the last 4 months.
Save your money and add to that $700 and purchase a new flat panel LED TV, you will be much more satisfied with picture, performance, color processing, etc., you will probably have to settle for a smaller screen, but you will get a better TV in the long run.

Panasonic tv pricing

From what I have seen, if the set is in good working condition it should go for about $100 to $150 maximum. If anything goes wrong with it where original parts are required it may not be serviceable. It is no longer supported. Considering its age its reliability is considered very low.

Blinking power button

Blinking power light is usually due to bad capacitors on the power supply. See the tip for RCA atc336 under my profile that can apply to your set as well.

I have a 6 year old Samsung PCJ522R 52" TV.

It sounds like at least one of 3 "IHVT",s popped. in short, a "IHVT" is a high voltage transformer. It will have to be replaced along with any other parts that were damaged in the process.
They do produce a strong odor when they pop!!

It is repairable but at a price. there is a good chance that parts will have to be ordered.

you might consider buying a new LCD HDTV instead of fixing this one.

Panasonic PT-51G44 51 transporting?

No you should only transport it standing up to ensure the optics do not get messed up. I have seen peeps do this and nothing happens. I have also seen pros do the move on the back or the sides and it tears up the TV set. Good Luck

What is a convergence problem?

Your problemo could be a so called convergence problem BUT it could also be a problem with the blkue tube or the focus block as well. If its convergence then YES for sure have the other ic(s) replaced at bthe same time cause if ones bad for sure the others going to have a problemo shortly. Now to the replacement?? I would say a fair price range to pay for a repair such as this would be about 300 to 400 buckeroons. This would also include Im hoping the repai, alighnment and cleaning of the sets optics. Alwat remeber theres alot of HI Voltage inside these sets even if they are unplugged, so be carefull!!!!!!!!!! Good Luck
