Question about RCA D52W20 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

D52w20 I am having a problem with the picture on this tv. it looks like it is sinking in on the sides when on certain channels when its hooked to the cable box. when hooked directly to the cable source the picture is fine. the cable guys have been out and replaced the box 3 times and say it is the tv but i dont see how it can be the tv if the picture is fine when the cable is run directly to the tv. seems to me it would be the connection or the box itself thats sending the signal

May have wrong diplexer. Ground potential between box and TV may cause problems. Cable techs should check to see if slitter is right

If you are using the HDMI input, you are using the best hook up that is available.
Is there a particular problem with the picture that does not look good?

The picture on our tv looks as if it is sinking in the middle and shows double. could this be a bulb?


The bulb would cause a dark picture or no picture at all. You have a convergence issue and the set will need to be repaired by a technician. Cost would be 150 dollars or more depending on shop rates in your area.

Picture stands still but voice continues


Almost certainly this is not the TV. If you have the set hooked up to a digital cable box or satelite these would likely be the source of your problem.

Rca D52W20 blue screen when turned on


Almost certainly the blue picture tube is bad. This is a huge job to replace and quite expensive. Generally it is not worth doing.

Tv shows flickering pic in an ultra violet fashion


Your tv is having convergence issues, i.e the red, green and blue are not converging properly together to give a suitable picture. you will need to replace the two convergence ics (approx cost $30 a pair), they are rectangular shaped mounted on heat sink and black in color. You will also need to check if the resistors on the output pins of each ic are not open.
and finally you will need to re-focus the red and blue using the remote.

Hope this helps!
