Question about RCA HD52W58 52" TV

Open Question

RCA 52" TV No longer turns on!

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.

    I took my TV apart and solved the problem on my own. For those of you that have basic electrical skills and can solder it is an easy fix that only takes about one hour. I removed the rear cover and pulled the left side board which houses the flyback transformer, easily identifiable by the big orande wire coming off of the top. If one looks carfully the soulder connection will probably be broken or loose which can be caused by movement or heat. I resoldered all of the connections for the transformer about 12 and the grounding wire to the left, a single black wire that plugs into the board. Once this was done I put ti all back together again and no problems since!

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

SOURCE: RCA F32650 32'' TV Just stopped working and 3 months after warranty 3-yr warranty expired

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!!

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.

Okay, so my Panasonic PT-43LC14 went black in mid show last night. The bulb is approximately 18 months old. The LED indicators upon Power On are; Power LED blinks green for approximately 70 seconds; Then...

Check the bulb again and look at the root of where the main stem comes out inside and be sure you don't see any bubble like appearence around the stem at the bottom there. If you do see this then the bulb is bad. Otherwise try this: Hold volume down on front of unit and pip on remote for about 5 seconds. Message will come on screen that timer has been reset to zero. This sets the lamp timer to 0

We have an Magnavox 26mf337B and we have no sound

Hi there,
A TV without sound is awful. So let's take some steps to see if we can get it up and running.
1) Check your input cables - if you're trying to watch something through another device (cable box/satellite box/dvd player ETC) make sure that the cables coming from it are inserted correctly into the TV. If the device has it's own seperate sound output (VOL controls) be sure they are turned at least midway UP.
2) Check the settings on your TV - Sometimes TV's have a setting where you can select audio output (speakers, 2.1 5.1, stereo, etc etc) Make sure you have it set to output sound to it's own speakers and adjust the volume to an audible level.
3) Check the audio OUTput on the TV itself - Connect the white and red (or in some cases black and red) RCA jacks to the audio input on a stereo receiver. See if sound comes out. If this is the case, you have either selected the wrong output on your TV's settings, or your Tv's speakers are dead.

Hope this helps you solve your issue!
