Question about RCA HD61W66 61" Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Picture screen looks as if it is bent from top to bottom... Picture is clear in the center of the screen but blurred on the left side. When looking at the tv guide, words on the left hand side of the screen are out of alignment with red being out of line like you're seeing double. I tried to unplug it for 5 minutes, and it cleared up, but now, several weeks later, the problem has returned and unplugging the tv and will not resolve the issue. When trying to adjust the convergence settings on the menu, it will not let you set anything, because the red and blue pluses are in line.

If you have tried using different input devices, looked for loose contacts
in power outlet, RC Jack, cable and connectors, the TV might need service.

I was watching my HCL4715W TV and the picture


It sounds like one of the convergence Ic chips is bad---you will need to locate and replace both of them and look for any damaged parts around them; there usually are two pico fuses in this area, one for each IC. The fuses do not look like glass fuses--they usually are green or orange in color and will have the amperage marked on them and on the top of the circuit board.

LCD screen is extremely blurred


It is probably not the LCD itself, but an element that is protecting the LCD is bent out of shape.

If the loss of picture is either on top half or bottom half of screen. there are y buffer boards that go from top to bottom on left side of screen when looking at back that control those sections. when there is loss of half of picture then buffer associated with that area would be at fault and would need to be replaced. when i see a degrading symptom such as loss of picture on top half or bottom half leading to no picture issue normally you would check heat syncs on y sustain board and if not heating up after a few minutes of being turned on would recommend replacing y main and both y upper and lower y buffer boards as they complete a circuit
