Question about RCA HD52W56 52" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Spider in my tv

Bugs somehow gets inside the tv and shows up on the screen only when the Tv is turned on. When I called the company that sold it to us (Aaron's Rentals in Forestdale Alabama) stated, "Yeah we had some roaches get in some of the tv's here and we had to clean them out before we sold the tv's". When I asked him why they would sell tv's to people knowing that bugs get in them, he stated "well, we can't help whose houses have bugs and whose doesn't, and exterminater should have came and sprayed your house if you didn't want bugs." What can I do to get the spider (we call the type of spider Granddaddy Longlegs I really don't know what they are called) out of our tv, and how do I prevent more from getting in it?

How do I remove a spider from inside the screen?


Nice... check and see at the back of the tv if there are screws around the frame which houses the screen, if so, carefully unscrew and disassemble. if not, the you'll have to go through the rear of the unit removing the back cover and again check to seewhat holds the screen inplace. time and patience is important. I also highly suggest you take pictures with your cell as you go through the disassembly steps, for a back reference.

When i turn off, the tv turn on automaticaly


imm not an expert, but im fairly certain you might be using a universal remote? perhaps you configured both devices on the same button setting? (the buttons that say tv, vcr/dvd, cable. etc) You might have somehow put them both on tv or it may have screwed up and assigned them both to dvd or whatever. try reprogramming the remote?
If its not the universal, it might be that the remote for your projector is somehow sending a signal to your tv that wasnt originally intended! in this case--pretty cool akshully ;)
if you can figure this out i would recommend contacting the projector companys customer service--they might have gotten a call about a similar issue--and aside from the annoyance of having to do that, it helps the company to weed out all the techie problems in future products :). Hope you get it figured out and hopefully that helps you!

How do I take the front screen off to clean the bugs out? Philips 60PP9100D-37 60" Widescreen Projection TV


First: do not take front screen off for cleaning--easy way is to remove entire black plastic shroud (you look at back of set and you will see 2 silver pegs near top edge) This set uses torks type screws---you need to remove several and the entire upper plastic in back comes off. The mirror is suspended separate from this.With the shroud removed you can clean the lens of the 3 picture tubes or any debris on the inside of the screen----do not use glass cleaner on the screen; but if you have smudges or bugs on the inside just use a very fine soft cloth(you may need to moisten it slightly) Any mark you make will show! If you find you have spider webs use a swiffer type duster to remove them.

I do this here for free so if this was helpful give me a vote here. If you have questions or need help let me know.

How do I dust inside the screen of a Rear projection TV?


Unplug tv first Usually you can pop the front screen off the set. There may be two hidden catches depending on the model. You may want to use two people for this. Once the screen is off removed the spider web and clean the back mirror with some windex, don't clean the inside of screen with any cleaner. Replace carefully the screen making sure it clicks back correctly

Pincushion like problem


You did not mention that this cost any money, so I assume that this was a warranty repair. There is the possibility that the new light engine is defective (I see it all the time), or TV needs adjustment via service menu, not mechanical. Call company back or call manufacture to get another company in your area to come out and repair your TV properly. Don't quit until your TV is working properly. Good luck.

Picture size


I called RCA about this and first was told that it was my cable company till I told the rep that it does this even when I unhook the cable. I was then told that I could take it in to get it fixed and that even it it was a bad part on their end that I could end up paying for it as if might be the pictue tube or the screen. Guess this will be the last RCA that I ever buy again.
