Question about RCA D61W20 61" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

I need to know whats wrong with this tv and how much it will cost to fix

The power light comes on but once you try to turn the tv on you will hera a weird sound like its going to turn on but you get nothing. It smells like something is burning when you do this. I took the back cover off. Excuse my lack of knowledge but the gadget on the circuit board that has focus and screen adjustment screws on it, is burnt. theres this thick piece of metal, that kind of looks like a magnet that is attached to the circuit board and goes right through this gadget piece i was talking about. Do you have any idea what im talking about?

I want to know what is the problem with my tv because why it does not turn on

Have you tryed the remote? the power button on the tv could be bad
Could be a fuse, or power strip if your useing one,,

If not the power supply may need to be worked on,, Sorry to say if its not something small, it could cost more then its worth to fix,,

If you know someone that will help you[if needed] open it up and check the main and secondary fuses on the power supply,, the board the power plug go's to..

Opening a tv can be varry dangerous!! tuch the wrong thing and your on your way to the hospital or worse..

I cant strees the fact enough to be safe,, make sure you or your help know what not to tuch, or how to discharag the TV first!!

My RCA rear projection wont turn on the light flashes when i push the power button, i got it to turn on once and i had a vertical line running through it. and colors a little distorted, i tried in the menu...

The flashing light opposed to a solid pwer indicator light usually means it needs to be serviced. I wouldn't reccomend home repairs, but repairs sometimes cost more than the product. You should compare prices and such before making your move.

Tv wont turnon afterstandby

LG will sell you a new lamp. It may resolve the problem but just as likely it's the contacts where the lamp unit plugs to the TV. There's a few types of connectors. The early ones are dodgy and cause the problem you describe. A faulty lamp can also cause it though.

TV won't turn on

There is a failure in the scan amplifiers, and or the power supply. This will require trouble shooting by an experienced TV tech who has access to the service manuals and know the set.

There are many components in the set that can cause this type of failure.

Did you not take an extended warranty???

This type of repair is not low in cost to have done.

Hitachi 50UX52B Will Not Turn ON

Hello everyone, this is a common problem, this fix costs about $15 for parts, and some knowledge of soldering. here is the fix:

You need to buy these parts,

- Part 0244211 (was 0244211F) - Cap. Ceramic DE1210R102K - $1.83

E994 - Part AZ00104M - Protector (CRXT491002) - $2.58


the total should be around $12 with shipping.

then you remove the old ones, the numbers are labeled on the actual circuit board but if you still cant find them these pictures might help you:

and once they are removed solder the parts you bought in the place of them and plug the TV in and enjoy!

Can someone help me with my phillips 50P8341A

It could be caps around the power supply. If this is a LCD projection TV, it might be the color wheel.

I would call some TV repair places to see what they say. If it is a power supply issue, I cannot see it costing more than $50 to fix it. If it is a color wheel or something like that, the cost will be quite a bit higher.

Does the power light still come on?
