Question about RCA HD52W59 HDTV Projection Television

1 Answer

I think I have a ghost

OK-So it turns itself on and off-It channel surfs on its own-It raises and lowers the volume on its own at will--Keeps popping up the menu, and sometimes pops up a menu that seems to be factory settings like tube type and things of this nature, not accessible via the regular set up menu---what gives? This thing is only about 18 months old-I called RCA and they were frickin clueless..

Hello jpatton82,

Don't call a priest just yet! :D

What I want you to di is first unplug the TV. Then find the connector for the front panel controls, and unplug it (You may need the schematic to find this). The take the fascia if the TV off to expose the front control board, and the remove the retaining screws and take it off. Once the controller if detached from the TV, clean it with circuit cleaner solvent (This should remove any contaminates from the board and contacts). Once the board is dry reattach (and plugged back in to the circuit board) it and put the fascia back on. Turn on the TV and see if this works, if not the check the integrated circuit uses the control board as input check and see if its bias voltages match what is in the book, If the IC is defective replace it if you find the voltages are normal then try to see if their might be IR signals from other sources that could produce these results..

This should help for now,

Contact me via this post if none of these tasks work.

Thank you,

Shuttle83

Is it possible to hook up 2-6x9 and 2-12in.subs to the 7540a and still pack a nice punch


yes it is however the hookup for it requires something a bit unorthodox

you have 4 outputs (bridgeable)

channel 1 and 2 must be bridged (to lower the ohms) then connected to the 2 6X9 in Parallel..
this must then be set to the high pass frequency (eliminates bass)
lower all the settings as low as possible then turn them up slightly to increase volume to a level where its the hardest and clean sounding..lower volume after

this eliminates the bass and keeps the 6x9 pushing your mid range and high range frequency

now you have 2 channels remaining,, set 3 and 4 to low pass and connect each 12" to an individual channel. (this keeps the bass and ohms high so you will get a clean bass to match with mids and high's. Dont set or bridge for a low bass as it will jam out the 6x9 and your music will sound terrible.

so there u have a simple hookup that will work and keep you sounding clean. remember not to raise the volume on the 6X9 too much as you will blow them..

Open the thing up and clean off all the dirt on the volume buttons with a dry rag and clean the remote sensor.  Put in fresh batteries and now give it a try.

MENU SCREEN POPS UP, TV CHANGES CHANNELS, TURNS SOUND DOWN


Yes. Its probably a stuck button on the TV's front panel. Try pushing or wiggling each button on the panel. It could be the channel up/down buttons or volume up/down, menu, etc.

When there is a button that is making slight contact, it keeps the microprocessor busy attending to the command its erroneously receiving from the offending button and may not allow other functions to work when this occurs.

It doesn't matter which button is stuck, any of the symptoms you describe can happen.

Tv keeps changing channels on its own and remote not working


I disconnected the front buttons of my set. Pop off the speaker cover and note which color wires come off the buttons and then take off the lower back and you can see where it connects to a board. Generally the far right connection but trace the wires. After doing that my channels quit cycling and everything but the front buttons work.

TV Volume turns down by itself - Philips 29PT8319 Matchline 27"


Most likely the volume down button on the front of the TV or the switch that it activates is sticking. Should be an easy fix otherwise.
