There is a faint buzzing sound coming from the 50HDX82 TV. If I turn up the volume of the TV, then one does not hear it, but if you do the '1/2' mute, you hear it a lot, if you mute it completely, you do...

I know this will sound stupid but try it, unplug just power cord, leave it unplugged for 2 hours then plug it back in. This will reset it to factory setting and if this issue was caused by a power issue it will fix it.

My rca tv model no r52wh74 goes off after a few minutes and wont come on until about 10 minutes then goes back off again?

What the problem is here is you have a bad power supply or you need to do a hard reboot. On this tv to reboot you need to unplug it from the wall and leave it unplugged for about four hours if not you need a power supply

RCA r52wh74 tv powers on then powers right off

one solution to maybe solve the problem of it not staying powered would be to take the panel off the back and use a blow dryer in the lower left hand corner and heat it up. It worked to get our tv turned on.

Hi I am Vortash sorry to say you have an engineers nightmare fault an intermittent or slow to show .. this requires bench testing to catch the fault as it happens .. it will probably need an oscilloscope to monitor the psu and an MMM and a multimeter .. not the type of stuff most people have around the house unless you are an electronics engineer sorry to say but this is one for the man with the van .... Regards Vortash
