Question about RCA HD52W56 52" Rear Projection HDTV

2 Answers

Possible picture tube problem? Delayed picture, blue background, etc.

I bought my HD52W56 last year and all was well until one month before its warranty expiration and the screen started to turn a blue tint when watching a program. At first the screen would switch to the blue tint for a matter of minutes then turn back to normal, but now it is always blue and on screens where there is no picture, you can see lighter blue lines crossing the screen--some curve down/up at one end. Also, when the television is turned on, the screen remains blank only hearing the audio for about 2 minutes before the picture pops on screen. Im leaning towards a bad picture tube, but im no expert. Anyone got an answer to the problem i'd appreciate it. I dont wanna have to spend unnecessary money to have a repair man figure the problem out first then have to pay for him to repair it if its too big of a task for a home-remedy.

If it still has a valid WARRANTY, exercise the warranty to get it repaired/replaced.

If the warranty has expired, then open the case, remove the disk-drive, buy a new "compatible" disk-drive, connect it, and thus "revive" your external storage device.

Hello:
The symptom you are describing could be one or two things, if it works for a while then starts to act up this coulb be an indication of a bad solder joint. But it may also be the CRT or the picture tube. Try tapping on the sides when it starts to act up while watching the picture to see if it clears when its tapped on. If it does then you have cold solder joints on the main board, this is a easy fix. IF it does'nt then I suggest you contact your store for warranty info to have the CRT replaced or the television exchanged. Since its still under warranty you might as well use it before it expires...

Blue wide streaks in my 42" Sony TV model KDFE42A10.


I have the same TV and the same problem and it's also just over 2 years old (bought it June 2006) when the problem started. Every day, I saw the blue streak cover more of the tv, now 6 months later, it has all turned to green and the entire tv has a green tint. It looks like I am watching tv in murky green water.
I am lucky that I purchased the additional warranty on the tv and finally got around to calling them. I hate to tell you this, but they told me that the optical light has gone up and they are replacing the tv.
