RCA HD52W59 HDTV.....will not turn on, makes a weird noise

Tv will not turn on, no green light or anything. The tv makes a weird noise coming from the left side when looking at the rear, it appears the noise is coming from the "pulse indicator" it gets very warm and have seen a little smoke coming from this area on the board, please help, thanks.

    ok thanks, what about the pulse thing on the board that was smoking?? won't that need replaced? it appears the part number on my flyback is 20051218 does that make since? can you test the flyback

  • hammer77_03 Sep 05, 2008

    my bad, its not called a pulse indicator, it just says "pulse" on top of it, its on the same board as the flyback. does that part number work for most rcas? because my tv is a HD52W59xy39 and it appears the number on my flyback is "20051218"

  • hammer77_03 Sep 05, 2008

    heres the pulse deal i was talking about, its right in the middle and it says "pulse" on it. its directly left of the flyback on the same board. this is where the sound was coming from and the smoke.

    I have the same problem almost. The only difference is that there's no smoke and only electrical buzzing. Any suggestions?

    on the bottom of my flyback the solder is burnt looking in 3 of the places. Could this be what is causing my fuse to blow?

    I have no clue as to waht youre refering to by pulse indicator. Can you take a picture of it?

    I thought that was what you were refering to. Thats the flyback, and yes flyback number 259296 is the replacement flyback for your model. This is a picture of the flyback circled in red

    if youre refering to the large Transformer coil, thats the SMT transformer, if you go to that link and leave them a email and tell them you need a SMT Transformer for your model, I am pretty sure they have them.

It was on and then it went off... now when I turn it on the green light comes on and then it make a funny whirling noise and then 5 seconds later it does it again but the picture never comes back on and...

the same thing happend to me you need a new lamp. Your lamp burned out you can buy a new one at a electronic parts store or find it online or call the tv company and see if you can buy one dont turn it on any more, it could be bad for the tv.

TV wont turn on, makes buzzing noise and shuts off

I have two RCA HD52W59 TV's. I have had one for 3 years and one 4 years. The one I have had for 4 years is giving me the problem. Last week the tv turned off while watching it. It wouldnt come right back on. 10 minutes later we tried and it worked fine. the other night the kids were watching and it turned off and smelled like something burning. I tried turning it right back on and got no power at all. I tried to turn it on two days later and it made a buzzing noise and the green light went out. Never did get a picture, no powering up on the screen. Any ideas? Don't want to spend alot of money. Really loved the TV hope it isnt junk now. Better yet I hope the same thing doesnt happen to the other one I have.
