Question about RCA D52W20 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

2 Answers

Brightness I'm not sure I'm in the right place. My model number appears to be: HD52W59YX21. The set works just fine. My only concern is, the picture doesn't seem as bright as when we bought it, three or four years ago. Maybe I've just been looking at too many friends' new LCD TVs -- but I'm wondering if maybe a lamp replacement might be in order. I've been thru the setup menu -- there are no convergence problems, everything seems to be just fine... Except the brightness. ideas??

Since this is a CRT based projection set, there is no "lamp" to be replaced. If the overall picture color is good, but it seems dark, there could be an accumulation of dust and dirt on the CRT lenses and/or the mirror. Carefully remove the back to gain access to these parts and clean them with a slightly damp cloth. Please note that there is high voltage at the tubes even with the set of and unplugged. Barely dampen the cloth only enough to collect any dust that may be there. Clean the miror as you would any other one.

Let us know the results.

Is the contrast setting normal? You tube 'may' be fading, but not yet failed. A licensed pro should help you decide whether a replacement is in order or not.

Too much brightness when using s6800


I do not know the S6800 model specifically however, nikon cameras all generally work in the same way. Somewhere on your camera, probably a button or in the menus, there is an exposure compensation setting. The symbol Nikon uses for the button is a "+/-" enclosed in a circle (often half black on white/white on black printing). Press the button and you will either see a zero, a positive or negative number or a a scale with zero in the center with positive numbers to the right and negative numbers to the left.
If the exposure compensation is not at zero, set it to zero. Your exposures should now be correct. If it is already at zero, set it to a negative number to reduce exposure and darken the picture and to a positive number to increase exposure and lighten the picture. Let me know if this solved your problem.

Picture is not as clear, brought 2005. Has blue color on lower right side of screen.


You may want to do some research with the model number via Google--"problems"

The set indicated here is LCD rear projection--it uses a OPTICAL LIGHT ENGINE and a lamp= lamp shines into the engine and goes thru a series of lens and baffles and emerges from a 2-3 inch wide lens at top of engine--shines it into a mirror at the rear of set which places the picture on the screen.

The first place the very bright and hot lamp hits inside the engine is the BLUE SECTION----damage occurs and you get blue streaks or area anywhere on picture.

Damage is permanent and only way is to replace 800 + engine.

You might want to at least call Sony with the model number as they were extending the warranty (beyond original) on several models and repairing or replacing sets outright.

They were not doing this because they wanted to but because of several class action lawsuits they settled in this way.

Too much brightness


Set the ISO to a lower number and make sure your "exposure compensation" is at "0" or lower if you prefer.

My kodak easy share indoor pictures look fine when


Are the pics fine when printed?
If so I wouldn't worry about it since KODAK no longer repair this cam. model, but instead recommends an exchange.
You can get an exchange to a brad new model for the same money as a regular repair, but if you're happy w. your model then you might want to live w. a darker LCD. You can adjust the brightness of the LCD within Cam. Settings.

Tv works like 10 min.then retrace lines appear,


the model number 53fdx....etc is not a Toshiba model number---It is a Hitachi model number.

First if it comes on and you get trace lines before it shuts off----does it just get very bright and if so does it get bright red, green, or Blue?

if one of the picture tubes or the circuit around them has a problem you can get this and the set will shut down because it detects something is pulling way too much current.

I would be happy to try to help you but look at back of your set for brand and model number and if possible try to give me a better idea of what the picture looks like before it goes out.

Color


see if there is a "default" option, if not set everything back to the middle, if the colors are still off you sure its not the convergence?
most big screens allow you to change "color temperature" it's like a default adjustment for 3 different brightness levels.... ie...COOL, WARM picture will show obvious changes in brightness
