Question about RCA HD52W58 52" TV

1 Answer

Bending Picture I have an older model large screen tv, around 1995. I am unaware of the model number, or year as i bought the tv used and do not know where to find this information ... but it is a rear projection tv. My problem is the picture has begun to 'bend' into the center and the color doubles ... its almost looks like the people on tv have a shadow around themm and the colors are altered .. the problem will go away for a while if you turn off the tv or if you go to the menu, then sceen, and then adjust projection tv which then gives you the option to adjust the green centering or the blue and red convergence ... however this only fixes the problem for a short period, and them it happens again, and more frequently .. any suggestions on how this can be fixed or is the tv garbage????

Convergence issues can be one or more of three different boards...in this case i would think it might be what is known as covergence power board.+ convergence amp board. both items very fixable and easy to replace. It would be difficult to determine however because if its the ssb board... then much more difficult to replace.

Many large auto-recyclers, used to be junkyards, are now online and you can look up interchange numbers. Just by searching for a make, model, year, and part you will get a list of interchangeable parts for other years. If you do not have any locally try searching for Marshalls' in Circleville, Ohio.

I have a big screen toshiba tv, it's an older model and it is showing double picture, kinda like 3D, wondering what the problem would be. Not sure of the year or anything like that as i don't know where to...


This is a failure of the convergence circuit. There will be 2 or 3 sometimes, large black IC's labeled STK... (something.. generally 392-110,or 120, or 150) These need replaced, check for open fuses, could be glass type or pico fuses, also check all resistors around the IC's for burn marks, these must be replaced with EXACT replacement parts.

How is this tv someone is trying to sell me it for 700 dollars is it worth it?


JVC DLP TVs are great TVS but I would not recommend purchasing a DLP TV used, nor would I pay $700 for a used TV!
The most I would pay for that TV would be about $300 as long as the lamp has been replaced within the last 4 months.
Save your money and add to that $700 and purchase a new flat panel LED TV, you will be much more satisfied with picture, performance, color processing, etc., you will probably have to settle for a smaller screen, but you will get a better TV in the long run.
GOOD LUCK !

How do I tell the year an Admiral refrigerator was built?


Most older refrigerators will have the Date Of Manufacture stamped on the model number tag. Most newer models after 1990 will not have the DOM.

If no DOM is present, you can tell if your refrigerator or freezer is made before or after 1995, IF you still have the model number tag. This tag always has the model and serial number, as well as some technical information, including the refrigerant type used in the system. Models made before 1995 will use refrigerant 12, or R12, models 1995 and after will use refrigerant 134A or R134A.

Apologies to Andy Hi Fi and tvtek who both answered this query yesterday, but I gave out the wrong model of tv. My set takes about 5 minutes to produce a picture, which is then as good as ever. Sound comes...


This fault sounds very much like the CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) is approaching the end of its life. If you can find a TV engineer in your area - preferably one from "the old school" - he may well have a "Tube booster". This sometimes works to "rejuvenate" old CRT's but can also unfortunately, bring an abrupt end to the tube, because it involves passing a higher than normal current through the tube heaters.

Environmentally, it all depends on the age of your current TV and the size of the screen. If it's a fairly large screen, (32") it will probably consume around 250 to 300 Watts of electricity. Modern LCD TV's are more efficient, however gas plasma TV's tend to use slightly more power than LCD models.
As you will know, TV's don't use that much power in comparison to say, a cooker, electric kettle, fan heater or washing machine heater so you can expect to use around 200Watts for your new TV if it has a 32" screen. Power consumption goes up of course, the larger the screen size you have, so if you bought a 40" or 50" screen you would not save anything in power compared with your old CRT type TV.

If your current TV has lasted for 20 years or more then you have done reasonably well. That's not to say that many TV's with conventional CRT's often last MUCH longer than this.
Tandberg CRT TV's have been known to still be working perfectly well after more than 30 years! Much the same with Panasonic.

Will a 1995 Chevy Blazer fuel pump work in a 2000 GMC Jimmy? If not, what years are compatible with a 2000 GMC Jimmy?


That depends on the engine and fuel system. For example, throttle body runs around 12 PSI as where fuel injection (Injectors on each cylinder) can run up to 40 PSI. Run the pump that fits your vehicle!

How to clean the screen


Philips has Projection tv, screen cleaning fluid and a soft brush also to clean your set. You can buy this in most stores like Walmart or online. And remember that your screen have grooves in it so follow the patterns. I think most goes up and down. Hope this helps!
