Question about RCA D52W20 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Screen went black, made a squealing noise and smelt like burnt plastic.

Now the TV won't turn back on, and if I press power on the TV, it squeals more.
Not sure if there is any hope for my TV at this point. But, Can someone give me some suggestions?
Thanks

Why does my sylvania electric fireplace Model S211 squeal


I had the same problem. If you remove the top row of screws on the backside of the unit, you'll see that the flame effect is created by a series of reflectors attached to a rod. Turning on the unit activates a motor that turns the rod. You'll see that the other end of the rod is just a loose end that is allowed to turn inside a plastic holder. Unfortunately, the rod rubbing against the plastic as it turns causes the annoying squealing sound. I solved the problem by wrapping a small amount of paper towel around the rod, pushing the PT into place inside that plastic rod-holder, and spraying it with a little bit of WD-40. I had to remove the entire back panel to get proper access. No more squealing noise (for now)! Time will tell if I need to reapply the WD-40.

5 year old goodmans tv suddenly went off, then intermittent high pitched squealing noises


Check the horizontal output section circuit. It sounds that the LOT {Line Output Transformer} has damaged.

I have a Toshiba 27AF42 and I get a high pitched squeal after the TV has been on for a few minutes. Any ideas how to fix this? Once I turn the TV and back on again the squeal goes away.


yes. its the horizontal linearity coil resonating. take off back. and while unit is on, take a plastic straw and push on coils in the high voltage area. you will find one that squeals when pushed on, or will stop squealing when pushed on. solder that coil and area. that will fix 80 percent of the time. if you push on it and the squeal tone changes, solder it and silicone it done. fixed.

Stopped working and squealing sound


Your set is shorted circuit condition. The power supply is making the noise. Unfortunately almost any of the hi current circuits will do this. If picture went out 1st look for video or hi voltage problems.

Squealing set


It looks like an output transistor problem. You can't fix it by yourself; you will need to call a service. It will cost you at least 100$, so consider buying a new one good luck
