Question about RCA HD52W58 52" TV
I am having an issue with the TV turns on sound becomes audible then it turns off! After checking the manual I thought perhaps it was getting over voltage per the troubleshooting steps. I checked the voltage and it is at 118.3 volts which is abnormaly high but I live in a very unique place. The TV is only 6 months old and where I live no RCA tech will be able to visit! I am capable of electronic repair I just do not want to void my warranty although I may have no choice. I have also contacted RCA customer support and am awaiting a response.

Hehehe Its all in a matter of taste I like sony and Mitsubishi. You like RCA you get what you pay for. These sets are good for the L401 in the horizontal drive circuit to cause your problem as well as a blown fuse and a shorted horizontal output trasistor and the flyback transformer. if its anything Im thinking off the repair cannot be done by a handi person and should be taken to a pro and will cost in the range of150 to 225.00 for this repair. good Luck

This is a very common problem with RCA tV sets. But unfortanatly, RCA is no longer made in this country or even owned by RCA anymore. They are a Canadian company called Thompson Corp and could not give two hoots about any problems with TV sets sold here in america. I say this from experience and try to contact them and file a complaint. ther customer service is rude and basicly calls us idiots! Alot of class action suits are pending or have been dropped as for the amount of sets they company have sold,They have attorneys working for them and delaying the cases. It is really the fault of the US Judges that are total morons about these things and try to go by un written laws. They dont have a clue as most of the US goverment does not. Your problem is not a power supply problem, But a high voltage transformer and a horizontal output transistor, and the reason why the estimate was so high, is because the tranformer is no longer available. Thats why the estimate is so high. Because who in there right mind would spend so much on a set as this. You can buy a 32" RCA(BUT I WOULD NOT BUY TRASH)At Wally World for less the $250.00 bucks! I no longer accept RCA TVs in for repair as replacement parts are so much money and im not proud to say I work on RCA TV sets. Total garbage sets!!

Yes, i had the same issue. High voltage trans. and the HV distributor (splitter) goes bad on there tv, they are known for that. I have the part numbers for the HVT p/n 258655 and HV distributor(splitter) p/n 258512. The two p/n are for HD56W58 proj. tv.

Sounds like the red picture tube could be shorting internally which would cause the "all red" condition. In which case you'd have to replace the red tube. Are there horizontal (slightly slanted) lines through the picture as well when this is happening and a very very bright screen? If so it's most likely the tube.
