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!!!

My zenith lcd tv has horizontal black lines whih form a band about 3 inches wide across the screen, sometimes the band looks more like a dark shadow than lines other times the right side of the screen...

This is either 1 of 2 things, first it could be faulty panel tabs , in this case, there is nothing you can do and is unrepairable....2) you could take the back off the tv and you will see 2 ribbons going from your t-con board to the panel tabs (top center of tv) remove them carefully and reseat them. This is a common problem. Tv repair tech 15 years! Best of luck.

I have at 42in Plasma Samsung HPS4253. One day randomly my TV had red pixels all over the place. Anytime the screen goes ''black'' it is now red. When watching TV or movies any shadows or black sections on...

If the picture has red 'staining' all over the picture which is static then the fault is the Xsus pcb. If the picture has random 'sparklies' that change then it may be a case that either the ppower supply Vs voltage has deviated from its set voltage which can be adjusted by a potenitometer on the psu pcb...or if the psu voltages are correct (when compared to the screen label factory voltages) then by tweaking the Ysus trimmers, The fault could be a deviated tolerance on the Ysus.

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.
