RCA TVs

If we're talking about watching reruns of Judge Judy on a 19-incher in the kitchen while you prepare Tuna Mac, there's no shame in it. But so help me, if I find you watching daytime television in SD on a 46" 1080p HDTV, we're gonna have words that are not suitable for some audiences. Viewer discretion is advised.

32LB45RQ <-- WalMart and Amazon show 4 HDMI ports and VGA input. You show 2 HDMI and no VGA. What's the deal? Are your specs wrong for this TV?

RCA has made 2 mid-production changes to this model. We have confirmed with our vendor that our specs are correct.

It appears Walmart & Amazon have not updated their specs.

I bought the: RCA R26LB30RQD 26" 720p LCD HDTV with Built-in DVD Player the last time it was up (not that long ago). It works just fine but you have to be facing it at the same height or the top gets blurry. It only pivots side to side, not top to bottom (which would alleviate this problem). All in all I'm happy. It was cheaper than a brand new one and it has a 1 year warranty.

I'd like to know why manufacturers continue to build TVs with DVD players...

It died RIGHT before the warranty died, then died again about a year later. Uncle.

We bought my Dad an RCA 46" TV just before the super bowl last year, for his birthday. By April 1/2 of the screen had gone out. I contacted RCA service, which is A&E, the company Sears uses. They came out, said the board was bad, but RCA doesn't issue boards, within 2 days they'll call to make arrangements to swap our TV out. A month and a half later, no reply. Calling RCA customer service, you got a recording saying the mailbox was full, call back later. You couldn't get anyone, day or night.

I finally got my TV replaced. It took about 6 months, 2 Better Business Bureau complaints and a complaint to the Attorney General of Michigan to get it. Even after people contacted me, they didn't follow through, and ignored e-mails after. Since On Corp USA bought RCA, it's no longer a customer service oriented business. While we love the new TV, I would never go through buying another product from RCA, you simply can't get it fixed without jumping through hoops. Buyer beware.

I'm not sure if this will help or not but I've had a 32in RCA LCD tv for 2 and a half years now and it still works great. I know some have had bad experiences but I haven't. Granted, I bought this brand new from Sears.

Looks like it is actually cheaper to buy the Soundbar from Best Buy. =/ $52 and free shipping.

Unless something has changed in their product quality the past several years, I stay away from anything RCA. I've owned compact stereos, remotes, and a couple TVs, all of which didn't last more than 2 years. I also worked at a major electronics store that got hit with a power surge once. Out of the dozens of TVs on display there using the same power equipment, guess which one never came back on...

I bought one from sears, 11 months into my 12 month warranty the pixels started going out. Called sears, they sent out a guy who said the panel was bad and they'd contact me about a replacement. Haven't heard back from them and it's been 4 weeks.

Because many people have a ton of DVDs they'd like to play on the tv they buy.

Well, refurbished = much less likelihood of an untimely death than a new item.

None of my refurbished electronics has died yet, but many of my store-bought *new* stuff is dead.

I'm nearly positive refurbished items are tested and verified they are in working order before they are sold/shipped. I personally have a number of refurb items and they all work great. Two AOC monitors and two Vizio 42" TVs are working great.

The refurbished warranty is a bummer, like my refurb computer hard drive died shortly after the 90 day warranty and it was up to me to replace it.

I thought that dog would have died a long time ago. I remember him looking in a speaker horn in 1955.

While often faster, we ask that you allow 5 business days for order processing and shipping out. This is the 2nd business day.

Hang tight. I know you're impatient.

This is true, I am impatient, and possibly spoiled by how quick you usually ship things out.

Not a complaint though, giving my current 32" to a friend with a broken tv, so just trying to get an idea when it's safe to tell them to pick it up, so i'm not down a TV.

Got mine today. No VGA input, which is my fault for thinking "A variety of inputs delivers easy connection to your PC and other devices" meant it would have a VGA input. Other than that, great looking TV, Thanks Woot!
