Liquid spilt on front of RCA HD52w59

This set was a freebie and had somthing spilt on the front of set. The previous owners took it to a RCA repair shop, and the tech. cleaned the middle CRT board. It worked for 2 weeks and stoped again. Now there is no sound or pic. The power light blinks and thats it. Is this worth fixing? Bill

Hello billew0481,

This might be a switching power supply problem. Since whatever may have spilled got on the broad and over time dried and shorted something out. While this is a possibility, I think that in this case the two incidents are not related. I think that you do have a power supply issue but the spill is not related. Is it worth fixing, That's up to you to decide the only thing I can do is to tell you what the problem may be and give you possible prices. For this job you are looking at a high end payment of $1000.00 if the IHVT, HOT, and High Voltage Tripler (along with associated circuitry) is defective. However it could be as simple as a fuse being defective. What I would suggest is getting an estimate based on a technician troubleshooting the Tv and determining what is wrong. at worst you'll be charged $100.00 for the house call. It's up to you then to decide to get it fixed or not.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

The picture looks bent and looks 3d...my friend who sold me the tv had the same problem and she was able to fix it but she cant figure out how to do it now ... somthing about the red and blue being off...


In the tv menu settings there should be a convergence menu or alignment menu...you need to go here to re-align the red and the blue guns to display the proper picture...most projection tv's have a setup screen for aligning the colors..you want to line up the red and the blue to get as close to white as you can

Wont turn on after replacing FL231 fuse on a RCA HD52W59


If you replaced the fuse alone without installing the other components that are rquired to repair that issue the new fuse can allow voltages to flow trough the diode in both directions which can prevent the set from firing up. You need to replace the FL231, DL231 and CL230 as a set then reflow the solder on the flyback and vertical IC.

RCA HD52W59 Wavy lines


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. The power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some pics of convergence problems.

What you will need to do is convergence. You can get a repair kit from TvRepairKits.com . It includes replacement parts,step by step instructions, support, etc.

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.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from TvRepairKits.com . It includes replacement coolant,step by step instructions, support, etc.
