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?

It won't turn on and the blue indicator light flickers, I have to unplug it once or twice for it to work.


Cost is relative.
The higher your skill with electronics the less it will cost.
You have failing electrolytic capacitors either in the power section or the inverter section or both.
Any caps in these sections that look bulged at the top, or bulged/leaking at the bottom need to be replaced.
The TV will get harder and harder to start up until one day it just won't.
It's not an expensive fix but let the tech know that you know whats wrong but don't have the parts to fix it or something like that so that he doesn't charge for a bunch of stuff that wasn't wrong.

It may be the power supply starting to go out. That can be inexpensive if you know how to solder and troubleshoot electronics, as you could replace a few components for a few dollars. If you have it repaired by a professional, it could become rather expensive.

Wont come on


Instead of just unplugging the TV, perform a power drain:
1. Unplug the product's power cable so the device is not grounded to the house. 2. Press and HOLD the product's own power button for 1 minute to drain the capacitors. 3. Plug the product back into a wall outlet and try to turn it on.
Note: This procedure works with battery operated devices as well so remove the batteries and hold down it's power button.  Electricity can remain in capacitors and on circuit boards enough to prevent normal functionality. By clearing the residue electricity, your product will have a fresh start and many times this will resolve a buggy or non-responsive device that appears to be dead.
If the TV still won't turn on, then it appears something is wrong with it's mainboard since the TV is still receiving power because the standby light is still coming on.  The cost of fixing an older TV's mainboard could be costly or impossible if the part is discontinued.

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,

C707
- Part 0244211 (was 0244211F) - Cap. Ceramic DE1210R102K - $1.83

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

from:
http://tritronicsinc.com/

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?
