I have an RCA projection TV, model D52W19B. The TV powers on ok, stays on, and audio is normal. I don't get a picture. If I press the menu button, the menu will appear on the screen normally.


my guess is you either have a satellite or cable box try unplugging the system cable or satellite and set for 5 minutes and then plug them back and and restart the unit up and see if it comes back the gemstar module would some times lock up causing this problem . and please let me know if that get's you working or if there is more trouble shooting to be done

HI i have an RCA HD52W59 and the picture looks 3D, I can use the manual convergence but when tv is shut off and turned back on it goes back to the 3D look and the auto convergence does not work - the...


Projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Below are more details for both items. Also, complete repair kits with instructions and repair support are avail from site such as www.TvRepairKits.com

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....



  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some pics of convergence problems.

Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

You don't need the remote to unlock the TV. Any RCA universal remote will change channels etc if you want a remote.
Now from the manual: simultaneously hold down the menu/OK button and the Volume down button for 3 seconds. This resets the pasword and unlocks the TV. You can then enter the menus as usualI believe to control/clear parental settings etc.

Hope that helps, good luck

ALSO:
I searched a Magnavox manual for the lock feature here is what I found...
The following functions are disabled during SDM (and enabled after leaving SDM):
· Parental lock
· Blue mute
· Hospitality Mode
· No-ident Timer (normally the set is automatically switched off when no video signal (IDENT) is received for
15 minutes).
All other controls operate normally.
Entering Service Default Mode
To enter the Service Default Mode, press the following key sequence on the remote control transmitter:
0-6-2-5-9-6-MENU
Do not allow the display to time out between entries while keying the sequence.
Upon entry into the Service Default Mode, the letters “SDM” will be displayed at the upper right corner of the screen.

ALSO:
- Line 7 : “CHANNEL BLOCKED”
Indicates that all channels are locked except the selected channel.
The following complaints may be generated due to locked channels:
- TV cannot be switched on from standby with the local keyboard buttons.
- “CH+” and “CH-“ buttons on local keyboard do not function.
To disable the LOCK feature:
Select ”FEATURE” menu (with the Remote Control).
Select “LOCK” (with the Remote Control).
Set to “OFF”

I have a blank acreen and only Spanish in the menu


Press the menu button on the remote anc change the language setting. Blank screen, you may have to do a full channel scan (also in the menu screen) to search for channels. Lastly, make sure the correct input is selected to the input being viewed ( if the cable is connected to Input A on the bacl of the TV then you need to press the Input button on the remote to select input A (these TVs usually have like 5 different inputs to choose from).

jtrent2- O.k you say your t.v has nothing hooked to it at all, what do normally have hooked to it. Do you normally run coax cable,or rca input. The tv is looking for your source ,hook up your regular source, and see what you get. The tv needs to see a source,of some kind. Try hooking a vcr to the cable connector on the back, play a tape and scan your channels.The tv should pick up the vcr as channel 3 or 4 and lock in. Try this and let me know,I can help you. cooltek Mar,3/08
