Question about RCA HD52W56 52" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Sometimes screams a high pitched noise when turned on

We have the above RCA TV. Have had problems with it since Day 1. We returned the first TV for another. This one has had problems also. We replaced the lamp twice in two years. Now the TV sometimes screams a high pitched noise when turned on. It eventually stops after a few minutes. We have Direct TV but that doesn't appear to be the problem. Also, one of the built-in speakers does not come on. We bought and hooked up additional speakers to enhance the sound quality.

Should we just dump it for a new one?

    I am having the same problem with my tv. It seems to be worse when the wood stove is on, we started putting a fan in front and that helped for a while, thought that it was just overheating, but now it is doing the same thing even though it is cold in here....HELP!!!

It sounds like a worn or loose fan belt. It's slipping on the pulleys causing the screeching noise.

Hi i have hust turned my laptop on and it is making a biig noise and it is not stopping it comes on when u turn it on what should i do


Are you getting a high pitch screaming or a grinding noise? The Fan on the heatsink sometimes getting clogged with dust and over time this can cause the computer to turn itself off. Dependant on a high pitch scream this could be a number of problems, memory modules loose or faulty?? Would need more info about the type of sound..

High pitched whine/sometimes TV won't turn on


The power supply on this model will whine when it is shorted or overloaded - the set would have to be brought in to determine exact cause.

Tv wont come on


Good Day,

If you use your TV a lot then you need to replace the lamp, but if you only use your TV about 8 hour a day, then you also may need to replace the ballast.

The lamp is really easy to change. You should get at least 5,000 hours on your lamp.

Call RCA customer service and ask for a concession to replace the lamp and ballast. This is a common problem for RCA!

Good luck, God Bless.
