Just FYI; Compoiste video jack (Yellow RCA video input jack) is not capable of hi-def video signal, it is only for LOW RES SIGNAL. May be you are talking about Component video input (RED/BLUE/GREEN RCA jacks). Just to let you know.

    By the way, I still have this TV at my house, the convergent adjustment on this TV is very limited at best for the edge of the pictures adjustment.

The picture does not seem as bright as it was


This rear projection from the model number appears to be a RCA AND not the zenith listed in your question.

If RCA the lens for the tubes may be dusty or dirty--should be cleaned once a year.

Process is simple: unplug set and remove rear cover.

Locate the three large black lens at top of chassis and either with a lens cloth or a paper towel with glass cleaner sprayed on the towel clean them.

If they are dirty/dusty they will make picture look darker and duller than it once was---they are the light source for your picture.

My RCA D52W26 projection Tv is blurry. Digital board replacement


You cannot replace it yourself sir because there are a lot of adjustments(electronically not mechanical) and you need an equipment to transfer the data from the old EEPROM to the new one. If the convergence is fine then the fuse should be ok..Picture is blurry??? 1. could be a dusty CRT lens, you can clean those 3 lenses by taking off the front speaker grill then there's a small hole that you can see the lenses... or the mirror needs to be cleaned also. 2. maybe it needs a convergence alignment, pls check your owner's manual if available. thanks:)

Rear projection tv picture quality loss


most of these sets have 3 lens for the three picture tubes inside and also a mirror---if it has never had the lens cleaned they could be dusty and this will diminish the brightness and clarity of your picture---if real dirty the picture will look washed out------most of these sets you can remove the back cover(unplug set first) and gain access to the lens ; clean them with a lens cloth or a paper towel with glass cleaner.

No problem just have question for the experts.


Games are fine on a rear projection or LCD TV, it is the old tube type and the new plasma TV's that get burned in images and ghosting. Even they can be used you just have to be careful to select games that don't have a stagnant background that can cause a burned in image.

If all 3 colors are mis-aligned, you may have solder connections that blew a fuse. There are three fuses next to the flyback transformer, one usually blows causing this issue. Resolder the flyback solder connections and replace the fuse to fix.

52 in RCA


The RCA needs a flyback if its an ITC222 chassis which is waht the D52W20 RCA is. You can get a replacement flyback at the following link with free tech support so you can do the repair yourself which is a very easy repair. You need flyback number 259296. As far as the XBOX you should never play any video games on a rear projection TV as it can cause burn in on the CRTs if it is paused. video games are best played on a direct view, plasma or LCD TV. Rear projections like the RCa is not a good idea because of the possible burn in. heres a link to your flyback 259296

RCA P46921. Just changed flyback.


if nothing has been tampered with ie. focus controls, lens focus, I would check to make sure the high voltage lead is seated correctly.

Might be a bad CRT, might be a bad focus block, I would refer you to a Repairman as it will take some experience to repair.
