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

1 Answer

Humming sound My problem is that when you turn the TV on there is a loud humming noise. I have had the cable company come out and there is nothing wrong with the line. the sound is coming from the TV.I have had the tv serviced and they ar indicating that its some type of sound board that can only be purchased overseas and that is going to take about 8-12 weeks maybe longer because this part is only made once a year...... Please assist

    I have a humming-like sound very high pitched almost so that it is uncomfortable, maybe painful, but, after about 2 mins or so it fades away and is fine. It happens almost every time I turn it on. Rear RCA Ports (red, white, green, blue, red with yellow) for sound/s-video do not function. I get some sound or weird sound, but, no real picture, unless flippy grey images is a good screen for XBOX gaming. I'm assuming the card to the ports is bad. Can I replace it myself or even the sound?

OVERSEA'S ...thats just wrong... rca parts are availble all over the place. does the sound eminate from the speakers? DOES it go away when you turn it down.. if so two possible outcomes. speakers or something called ssb board which is the main signal or main board in this set. but the audio amp and all audio cuircits are on this board. this board is however technician replaceable only.. authorized technicians have a special computer interface used to transfer settings from old to new board. there are cases where if the humming is coming from the back which might mean flyback or a coil vibrating. is it a lound hum or whine? o buy the way i get most of my rca parts at the shop from union electronics.

Toshiba 62HM195, Loud hum noise when TV is first turned on.


I have the exact TV and had the exact same problems. It is the light engine with color wheel that needs to be replaced, and they are VERY hard to come by for this model. Our repairman has had our TV for 5 months and still cannot locate a vendor that carries the part. He said according to Toshiba, the part has been discontinued. If you happen to find one, please post. I'll do the same.

TV makes humming noise, lamp light is blinking, does not turn on


Your color wheel needs to be changed. Mine just did the same thing. I changed mine, and the buzzing sound went away, however now my picture washes out with light or yellow colors. The darks look green and purple also.

Loud Humming Noise


Samsung is notorious for having the motor on the color wheel burn out. If the color on the tv starts to fade or shift tones when the rev'ing or noise is happening then you'll know its the color wheel. There are only two moving parts in this set, the color wheel and the fans. If you're smelling something, it could be either. Take the back off the set and put a piece of tape on the lamp door switch and turn the set on. Try to pinpoint the source of the noise. If its a fan, no big deal, Radio shack should have a replacement. If it sounds like its comming from under the set, dig a little deeper and try unhooking the color wheel motor, not as easy as I am making it sound but either way the fan is about $20 to fix and the color wheel is about $100. Sure beats a $400 tech bill. If you get stuck, comment back and I'll send pictures of the dismantle.
