Question about RCA P52960 52" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

Wierd Looking Video

I have the 4:3 aspec ratio TV. Yesterday my TV started powering itself off and on several times while i was watching it. Now today, the picture looks like you are viewing it through a bubble, with the sides of the picture looking blurred and distorted. It also looks stretched, like it's being pulled from all 4 corners at once.

Probably the convergence circuit, the STK output devices, associated resistors, power supplies, etc. Generally about $250 to repair. Have a service tech come out and check it out, also have them eveluate the condition of the crts before going too far. Good luck

Hitachi 51F500 (Two separate problems?)


My guess is that the sound you heard was that of some High Voltage discharges that could have fed back and damaged some semiconductors including the microprocessor itself. Since it could be a very expensive repair, I would be very tempted to look around for a new HDTV by JVC or Toshiba. Hitachi has slipped a notch or two in recent years according to my experience.
