Question about RCA HD61LPW42 61" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Black Screen After watching my tv, at random times, the screen will go very dark and we will only be able to see shadows, When I turn off TV and wait the screen will be normal. It doesn't matter if we are watching tv, playing games or watching DVDs it does it at random times. What do I need to have done?

Ok, this is probably what has happened, you say that you have played games on your tv, well the thing is with HD and Plasma Screen tv's is that when you play Hi-Res games on them the games backdrop will burn itself into the screen, causing the screen to turn dark and not reveal the correct picture it should. People need to learn about this!!!!! Playing games on HD and Plasma tv's will screw up your resolution!!!

Dark shadow on lcd tv screen


I've seen a few of these.
They don't seem to be an indicator that the set is going to fail soon. The only fix seems to be to replace the screen but that is more cost than replacing the whole TV.

Optoma RD-50 DLP has dark vertical shadow on right side of screen


turning off the main can be very harmful to rear projectors if you dont wait for the cooling off period, for instance when you turn off the tv from the remote, the fans inside are still on in order to dissipate the heat given out by the lamp. as a result some of the lens inside the engine may have burns-in caused by excess of heat.thus leading to shadows on the screen.

hope this helps

please rate me!

Dark vertical shadows


No,you can't. This is very common. I bought a new tv and i noticed right away that it had the problem you are mentioning. I took it back for an exchange and the next tv did not have this problem...until a year later. Now,of course it does have this problem,but it is out of warranty.

I think they make televisions very poorly today.
