Question about RCA HD52W59 HDTV Projection Television

1 Answer

Tv powers on then off

My television powers on and then turns off I can power the tv back on after about a minute. I took off the back panel and I have sparks arching on the under side of the board in the middle of the board. Do I have to replace the board or can it be repaired. If I need to replace do you know the part number?

Whch board the one on right the one on left.. i would suspect the one on left. called the power deflection board,.. depending on the component that is arching. as a technician i might could do component repair if you have no technician then board replacement may be nessary depending if the traces or the board is burnt through. to correctly identify the board you need to know they entire model number which includes what is known as ext number. it will be sort of like hd52w59yx1 this number can be found in smaller letters on the back sticker with the larger model numberl. this number has to be exact to get the right board

Does not turn on anymore. black screen and red led blinckiing... samsang le40a552p3rxxc

You likely have the infamous Samsung capacitor problem. A capacitor(s) on your power supply board has failed, or is failing. Youtube has several videos (search "samsing capacitor) that are generic to Samsung TVs, showing how to identify and replace the failed capacitors with parts that are readily available. What it takes, more than anything, is soldering skills. I own the exact same TV you have (P3F variant), and have fixed it. I'm an electrical engineer with the parts available in my basement, but for me, the fix took about 15 - 30 minutes with the most time removing the back cover, plus if you don't have the parts, a trip to an electrical parts store or Radio Shack, or an order to DigiKey (less than $10). Some have reported that haranguing Samsung customer service brought free fixes even though the warranty has expired. If all else fails, I'd be willing to repair your power supply board, but you'd have to mail it to me and I'm not sure how contact info is passed on Fixya.

There is the possibility that your main board is what is bad, but with Samsung sets, the problem is most always the power supply. Inspecting the power supply for capacitors that have either leaked liquid or have bulged, points to the power supply.

My tv power box is making a loud noise

good day brend, hi, my suggestion is unplug the TV and call your dealer/service shop for repairs, the loud noise could be high voltage arching which prolonged may lead to high voltage sparks and fire.

When i turn the power on there is a high pitch sqeal and ozone smell. then the power goes off

If there is an ozone smell, that usually indicates arching high voltage which should also be visible through the back cover vents (or back cover removal-better yet) if arching (blue sparking) is observed it is usually on the left side -back - rear and is likely the flyback transformer that has a crack in the casing - check there first- if the source of arching is identified post back here with details.Caution since High voltage is present.

TV fell over, took a hit on top, no picture

Sorry to hear this happened but you most likley you craked the panel.The only other thing I can reccomend is to remove the back cover and inspect for arch marks on the inside of the cover.If I`m not mistaken that is a metal cover, and i could be arching to one of the internal heatsinks.
