I would suspect the glycol has gotten dirty. as the serts age there is a repair that can fix this .....but no i am sorry to say. most shops charge a bit for what is called a "gycol change" this is labor intensive. my shop gennerally charged around 100 per tube and 20 for the fuid. 3 tubes= around 350.

Picture looks like its 3D what is the problem


The D52W20 had an issue with solder joints around the flyback. When you take the back off the flyback is on the very left closes to the back of the tv and has a large red wire coming out of it. Looking from the top down you will see three small orange rectangles in a row. These are fuses and one of them is going to be opened.

All you have to do is resolder the pins on the flyback and replace the fuse and you should regain convergence.

There are four bad capacitors on the sweep board in the power supply. Pretty hard to do yourself unless you have some experience.

Green Screen, No Sound, Shuts off after 10 seconds


Almost certainly the green picture tube is shorted. This is a very expensive repair; probably not worth doing.

RCA rear projecton model number D52W20


the rca itc222 will shut down for any of 25 different reason. the fact that u see a flashing light lets u know one thing it is not the main fuse. the most common reasons for shut down involve high voltage parts. In the shop we have a computer interface that let us diagnose much like error codes in a car. the d52w20 is a old version of the tic222 and average repair at my shop is 250 to 400 and if its the tubes then it wont be worth fixing. tubes run 250 apeacie and by the time labor is put in that can run as high as 1000. I SEE ALOT of these at shop. How are you with electronics. rember this set can hold a charge and can be dagerous

Older RCA projection flickers and convergence out of whack


you can check the three little red fuses next to the flyback transformer , but then if not that then the convergence IC's will need to be replaced and the resistors checked on it for possible replacement

I just fixed my D52W20 by replacing three CAPS. Two of them were vented(bulging at the top). I replaced CP150 2200uf 16v with a 2200uf 50V, CP110 220uf 200v and CP114 220uf 35v. It was also recommended to replace CP120 but I did not have one. Check the green CAPS and replace any that are vented.
