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

1 Answer

Louding sparking in the back panel.

The television will work fine for about 30 minutes. Then after a while it will start popping and sparking in the far back bottom right corner. Turning the TV off will not fix it, you have to completely unplug it. If you leave it alone for couple of hours or the a whole day it will work for another 30 minutes. Im not sure but I think it is charging a capacitor and then discharging. Capacitor plates might be really close and arcing across or dust might be in there messing with the electronics.

More likely its the flyback arcing which is a common problem with the ITC222 chassis which is what your model is. You can get replacement 259296 flybacks at the following link with free detailed instructions with pictures so you can do the repair yourself.

Samsung T.V. goes on for 30 seconds then no picture


If this is a flat panel LCD tv, this is a sure sign that the panel itself is bad. I have seen this before. Tv comes on works fine then within 5 minutes goes blank.

Loud popping noise and spark coming from red projector


I would guess you have a High Voltage Leak at the Anode Lead Cap where it Mounts to the CRT. This is not a area to mess with You are better off calling a professional to fix it. It may be a little difficult to confirm if it is a intermittent problem.
Hope this helps,

Loud popping on jvc av56wp74


if the noise is from inside the tv in the back,the high voltage transformer that feeds the anode for the rgb tubes,28000volts probably is arcing.

Sound but no picture


Almost certainly the convergence IC's are shorted. Big job; perhaps $300 to $400.

The loud "pop" sounds like high voltage arcing coming from one of the CRT's.....you may have to pull each CRT out and put silicon sealant on the anode connectors to prevent the arcing.(one of the CRT's may be arcing internally also and the only cure is to replace that CRT) If you let the arcing continue,it will short out the horizontal output transistor sooner or later.......

Toshiba 61H70 Popped Loud & Fixed Then Popped Again & Again ;(


my guess is that that high voltage seals on tubes are leaking out high voltage from tubes if not probly sealed with silicon they will leak out high voltage.replace them and seal coorrectly this may fix your problem
