Question about RCA HD52W59 HDTV Projection Television

1 Answer

TRANSFORMERS I bought this TV about 2.5 years ago. All the sudden I turn it on and I hear what sounds like an electrical short and I smell electrical burning. I currently have it in the repair shop and they tell me it is the flyback transformer and a high voltage transformer. Cost of repairs including pickup is $582.00. I would like to know just how difficult it is to repair this myself. They tell me parts are only $122.00 and the rest is labor and pickup/delivery fees. HELP!

It won't turn on


The smell of something burning is not a good sign. The clicking sound you are hearing could be a relay or breaker kicking in and out as a result of whatever is wrong.

This could be cause by:
1. A problem in the power supply.
2. A problem with the Horizontal Output Stage.
3. The Flyback transformer.

Someone gave me a TV once that had the same problem. I determined that it had a bad flyback transformer. I replaced the transformer and the TV worked about 5 secs before I saw some black smoke come out of the new flyback. I turned it off right away and realized that something else was bad that caused the original flyback to burn up. The same thing was causing the new flyback to go as well. It turned out to be a shorted, 50 cent hi-speed switching diode. Fortunately, because I had turned the set off quickly when the 2nd flyback started to smoke, once I replaced the diode, the TV was fixed.

If you want to get it working again, you'll need to have it serviced.

Good luck,

TV won't turn on.


The buzzing sound could be due to either a bad filter capacitor in the power supply or a shorted component further down the line keeping the power supply from running at the correct frequency.

Possible short and safety is keeping the set from burning up. A service man should be able to find the short hopefully in a small amount of time.

Philips 27PT6442/37 power


Sounds like you have a short in your power supply load. Probably the high voltage transformer and/or horizontal output transistor. Stargazer P.S. I've found that a lot of the newer sets are prone to high voltage transformer failure.

Loud electrical sounds


It sounds like the Power transistor that drives the High Voltage Transformer shorted out. The rapid clicking sound you are hearing when pressing the power button now is that of the power supply starting to come up, detecting a short circuit and shutting back off again, preventing further damage. It is likely that the HV Transformer is shorted as well which usually causes the Output transistor to fail. Since the set is only 2 1/2 years old, it is probably worthwhile getting it to a repair shop as long as you have been very satisfied with the picture quality up to this point. If the picture size was larger than you needed, you might consider going down to a 37" LCD HDTV set. Toshiba is tops in this category IMHO.
