Question about RCA Scenium D40W20 40" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Rca d40w20 still wont work even after a new flyback was installed

I was watching tv one day and went into the kitchen, came back and it was off. Push the power button and the light comes on,makes a staticy sound like its going to turn on, then makes another sound near the flyback and shuts off again.The screen stays black.I replaced the flyback and tryed it and it threw a BIG spark out the top of the flyback to the red wire comming out of it a few times but now that has stopped but im back to the same problem i had before. I think the flyback is still good because when I try to power it up I can see some dust on the outside of it moving a little like it is energizing?What else could it be and why would it just **** out like that? Its not that old and there was no lightning or anything. All the fuses that I saw were good. There are no tv repairman in my area and I really dont want to junk it because I cant afford to replace it right now. Please help, I have been going nuts searching the internet for weeks trying to figure something out and all anyone talks about is the flyback or something about a power supply problem and then they dont go into any detail. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Check continuity from the connector for the horizontal yoke (red and black wires), to ground, if you have continuity one of the ground ******** the crt's is touching the yoke.

try resodering the connections on the flyback. Its fairly comon for that model to have hairline cracks at the solder joints which will cause the symptoms youre describeing.
