Question about RCA HDLP50W151 50" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Fading to black

Everything works fine for a while, then gets a pinkish hue with fading. Then shuts down...you can still hear the sound 99% of the time when the picture goes away. Restarts after a bit without touching the power button. Just replaced the bulb thinking that might be the problem but nope.....problem remains any suggestions?

When driving my 99 cougar and shifting into neutral at a stop sign/stop light my car remains at high idle and grinds teeth when I put it back in first. What could be the problem?


Sounds like the gearbox. But the test is this: Engage 1st and start slowly releasing the clutch pedal DONT HIT THE GAS. The engine should gradually fade out and bog down when the pedal is completely released. If the engine just bogs down at some point, or the fading is not gradual, the clutch is damaged. If you hear grinding its the gearbox.

The tv comes on and picture is perfect, then blue hue starts and progressively gets worse. Finally all blue with only sound. Turn off and back on and picture is perfect then fading begins again.


Hello.
During this procedure DO NOT touch anything else than whatever I mention here! You can get serious injury due electric shock!
You have to wait for TV to warm up and get worse blue hue you can get. Than remove front grill and behind it locate center shielding piece that also have to be removed. It held in place by 4-5 screws. Behind that "shield" you can locate "black box" size smaller than pack of cigarettes made out of plastic. It has 6 rotary buttons. 3 of them are" focus " and another 3 in the row are "screen". They all marked - take you time to study them with magnifier glass and flashlight if necessary! Locate one with letter "B" in "Screen" row . Others for green and red. You have to slow and carefully turn it counterclockwise using matching Philips screwdriver until blue is in balance with other colors.
Put everything back and enjoy your TV!
Regards.
Russ.

Power light fading in and out.


I had this problem and tried everything on the boards like unplugging everything internal and external and holding down the power button for 30 seconds; reseting CMOS. You know what worked though? I unpluged the chip from the motherboaed and let it sit for a few minutes. Now everyhting is fine.

Right now, my laptop screen is black. I can hit Fn


I'd guess that it's the CCFL (backlight bulb) going bad. What points me in this direction is that you mention that the backlight (when you're able to get it to turn on) isn't producing bright white light (and pink is one of the colors that normal fluorescent tubes produce when they're failing). You're in luck because CCFL backlighting isn't the most difficult thing in the world to replace (if you can handle delicate electronics) and you may just be able to hack together some LED backlighting for yourself while you're at it. There are a few reasons that LED backlighting is better than CCFL but the most important is that LEDs last pretty much forever.

There are a number of video tutorials on YouTube about replacing the backlight of an LCD display and a few of them detail the installation of bright-white LEDs in place of CCFL backlights. If soldering and math aren't your strong suits a drop-in replacement for the CCFL tubes should be fairly easy to find online...

My gateway just won't start up


Try holding the power button for about 6 seconds until it shuts down. Typically, when the light is fading in and out it is in standby mode. If that doesn't work and even after unplugging it - you may have a bad power supply and need a new one (that's the unit that the power cord plugs into and has a fan that always spins).
Hope this helps! Rate my solution!

Monitor fades and turns blue


this sounds like a transistor issue concerning the ccfl lamps the power transistors are deteriorating and they will eventually go bad you can have them replaced and that should fix the issue. otherwise I would say have the capacitors that feed the ccfl's may be getting old and need replacement as well, its not something the average customer will want to do but if you have a service center that does electronic repair then that would be bst.
Hope this helps
