When I turn my t.v. on the picture comes up just briefly and then turns off right away. I also smell something burning inside the electronics compartment at the bottom the the t.v. I don't have it on a power stripe and there was no indication of a problem prior to this one. I think it might be some kind of overload circuit but I don't have circuit drwgs.

Re: T.V. TURNS OFF
Sounds like somethings over heating if you smell something. The wise thing to do if you know nothing at all about the tv repair is to call someone unless you feel convident enough to open it and look around very carefully and see if you can describe whats over heating or burning as if you keep turning on the set and it keeps smelling it will burn something out thats not burned out now.

Burning smell can be caused by a blown component, a short, or dust burning inside circuits. In all cases do not turn TV on untill the TV had been tested and the problem is fixed as you risk to cause further damage to the unit.
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.
Hi...maybe I can help. Go back in and make sure your lamp is connected to the ballast. If it is not all the way in, it will smell like it is burning. Sometime it will even burn out you lamp and or ballast too. Good luck
The fact that you smell something burning tell Us a part is cooked,sometimes is easier to find them because you can see they are degraded,this things happen for no reason but I dont think is the picture tubes that went bad,by the description it might be something simple,if the picture quality was good before is likely worth repairing it.The repair will involve removing the defective part and then soldering in the new one,be safe and call for assistance from a servicer at least for an estimate.
