    I heard a very brief noise when I turned the TV on and then it would not start.

    How expensive is this problem generally? The TV is only just over a year old, (of course off of warranty) Is it worth fixing or am I looking at replacing it?

All you need to do is have it check by a tv technician. If you TV is still under warranty, better call the retailer or the manufacturer to claim your warranty instead of investing money for repair. If your TV is out of warranty, have fix by a tv tech if you have no knowledge on basic electronic troubleshooting. The problem there is a faulty component on the circuit board inside the TV. It might be a burned capacitor, IC or fuse. Definitely, the power supply circuit has been affected by a sudden power fluctuation or something like that.

The most common problem with this is the start up circuit of the power supply

    these clicking noises were due to the "power required" at the internal switch. Seems that the power required to immediately turn on the TV is too much for a standalone household outlet, so it "surges" power in a series to get enough Hence, the clicking sounds are actually mini power surges to send more power to the internal circuits to turn the TV on.

    disconnect any allow the internal cct to reset then turn it on again .the noises may stop after some minute

    if it doesnt work then you need a technician to look at the power start up circuit

The clicking noise is the internal safety switch preventing the tv from turniing on.

When this happens it means the TV has detected an internal problem, for example an overvoltage, a short or a faulty component. the safety switc keep TV off to prevent further damage.

Try unplugging TV power cord for one or two hours.

If this does not work a technician will need to test onboard components inside your TV.

If you need a technician you can use the phone number listed on the owner manual.

When i push the power button on my rca hdtv r52wh73 the green light comes on it makes a squeak noise like it is trying to power up but nothing happens.


replacing the deflection board will solve that issue about 95% of the time. You need the ITC222A deflection board PSB260 which you can get from www.tvrepairworld.com listed under the RCA Projection circuit boards. It comes with installation instructions.
