Question about RCA D52W20 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Zapping After the TV has been on for a while, it will start zapping. This is like light and sound in a small area of the screen but it continues in different locations. I shut it off and unplugged it for a while. Plugged it back in and it started doing it again after it got warmed up. My son-in-law thinks it is the power supply. What do you think.

Put in new blub and heard a zapping sound is bulb bad or tv?


Check the bulb is not damaged and is inserted fully into the socket. The bulb needs several thousand volts to ignite which would be the sparking noise you heard if not connected properly.

51MP392H/17 Makes Zapping sound on power up. No picture or sound. Has been reset/unplugged. When powering up makes a sound like a bug zapper for about 1/2 second. Power light stays on and I can hear the tv...


The Zapping sound you are referring to is most likely due to arcing of the flyback(high voltage transformer). It is strongly recommended that you do not turn on the tv and have a tech test the flyback and replace it. The FBT generates voltages of about 30000V and should not be handled by someone who has not worked on high voltage electronics before.
