Question about RCA D52W20 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
I've had my D52W20 for 4 years now. For the past 3 years or so there's been a SLIGHT delaying powering on. I could instantly hear the audio, but the picture would be about 2-3 seconds late. Never really thought much of it. I recently moved out of town, and while i was getting settled the tv was in the garage of my old house for about 4 months over the summer. When I moved it in a Uhaul (250 miles) and got in the new house a few weeks ago it wouldnt work properly. At first the picture was jus a little "blue". Then the whole screen went blue......and had weird zig-zag lines through it.
I waited a few days and tried it again. This time it was cutting on and off by itself. It would stay on for the about 30 seconds, then turn itself off for 3 seconds.....then turn itself back on! After doing that about 4 times.....it simply would not power on again.
I unplugged it and waiting a few more days. This time the tv stayed on for about 5 hours!!! ......but the it powered back off and followed the same routine.
I had a local tv repair place pick it up. They just called and said it 'seems' like it's the picture tube and it's not worth fixing. They said they finally got it power on, but now they cant get it to power off! and said that the picture is of poor quality.
Before I TOTALLY through away a $2k investment.....is there anything else I can do? were they correct? it's a small town, so i dont have much faith in them. Please tell me what you think the problem is and if it's fixable.
It does sound like the tube, have the shop use a tube restoration machine to rejuvinate the tube, and replace the eprom to try to correct the no power down situation.
