Question about RCA HD52W58 52" TV

1 Answer

What could be wrong?

I have a 52'' big screen RCA television, under 3 years old. Here lately while turned on the t.v. will change to channel 2 and then turn off. When powered back on it will not work. We have to unplug and then plug back in. Right before the t.vv switches off it makes a hissing type sound. What could be wrong?

These old technology sets (rear projectors) are notorious for high voltage problems, and this is probably what you have. RCA is now, sadly, a Chinese junk brand with poor support, but your older unit may still be slightly viable, but not very. Put it into a big truck and take it to a shop. Home service may not be available, or may be nearly worthless. Better yet, get a new TV. I suggest a 1920X1080 LCD model. (Panasonic, Sharp, Sanyo, even Funai or Orion are the best choices) Forget plasma, DLP, or any of the rear projectors. These huge, ugly (and mostly empty) boxes really belong in the Smithsonian, not in your home! When you see the new LCD's, you will forget about your old boat anchor in a heartbeat.

Hi I have a 52" RCA big screen tv that is only 3 years old however we turned it on today and it is showing some red blue and green lines and the picture is blurry

Hello clara7,

This denotes a convergence problem. I would suggest that first you enter the menu of your TV ad try to do an auto converge on your set, if this does not work I would suspect that the convergence ICs have gone bad and need to be replaced. I would suggest that you have a qualified TV repair technician replace the convergence ICs in this set.I hope this helps,Shuttle83http://www.electron-age-technologies-llc.com

Rca big screen tv

How old is the set. im guessing from my research the set could be about 4 to 6 years old?.... this could be many things but first thing i would guess is the fluid in the tubes could be getting old..as they age the fluid grow alge and blurrs the image. also dirt and smoke tend to dirty the lens on the crt. most tv shops can change this fluid. If they do the tend to charge quit abit. our shop would charge between 250 to 400 to do this. I find this to be a rather involed repair. removeing 3 crt remove the fluid cleaning the tube and replaceing and adjusting them. so first thing is to clean the lens and the mirror

Screen size changes

RCA hads a problem with it's sets switching back and forth on their own. This is covered under warranty. Some say first turn off the autoformat feature in Customer Menu, if this doesn't work, a board need to be replaced. I would contact Manufacturer and ask is under warranty. RCA/GE same !
