Question about RCA D52W23 52" HDTV CRT TV

1 Answer

Older 36 inch rca crt tv

The tv was working perfectly fine until i was transporting it and it took a little spill in the truck.  When I got out of the truck it was leaning on the side of the truck bed with the plastic above the screen.  So thats where the impact was.  When I brought it inside the house the tv starts buzzing in the back as soon as you plug in the cord.  The tv does not work anymore.  The buzzing comes from around where the cord enters the tv.

Without disassembling the set (removal of the back), there is no way to determine what might have been damaged and further operation without finding and correcting the problem may could cause further damage and may be unsafe. In many CRT sets, the main board is not very secure and is normally held by slots either side of it. It may have been jarred out of the slots and shorted something on the trace or component side. If would be safe (unplugged of course) to remove the rear housing with the 4-6 screws holding it and at least visually examine it inside; the problem may be easy to spot and correct.
However, any kind of sharp shock to the CRT (picture tube) may have misaligned it inside, making the picture geometry and color alignment impossible.
If your set is not compatible with the coming HDTV standard, you might want to consider replacing your set. I suggest though, that you take a look at this article describing the pros & cons of CRT TVs:
CRTs or not?
As a service tech, I would also suggest you poke around here (Fixya) to see how others are faring with their various kinds of flat-panel and big screen sets; way too many are dying like flies.

I have an RCA 36 inch tv, the color is messed up, it has a round circle and it will not change channels


If the set wasn't dropped or physically dammaged the chances of it being the picture tube is very small.
The set is probably magnetized and needs degaussing (demagnetizing).
All CRT type TV's have an internal demagnetizing circuit that is engaged when the set is first turned on after being off for the day.
If this circuit is working then you sometimes hear a "bonk" sound (about 1/2 a second long when the set is first turned on. If this circuit isn't working the set will become magnetized over time and will have to be degaussed using a degauss coil available at a TV repair shop (cost aprox. $35.00) and you should have the circuit checked at the same time. A set will also become magnetized if a large speaker (magnet) or motor is close to the TV. Be sure to vote/rate me if this helped Thanks!

Wavy horizontal lines on bottom of RCA 36in Truflat TV


The convergance or y-sus board can become faulty. The capcitors do tend to burn out. It is about a $250 + repair for this. Not all parts can be repaired, but they can be replaced. A capacitor tester and multi-meter are about the best tools for the job. If the price you get is over $250, I simply would replace it instead of repairing it..

Picture on 36 inch toshiba tv out


I had the same problem on my 61" RCA TV... The switch for the power/channel changing buttons seems to be a faulty product... However if you are a little technical you can open up the front of the TV and disconnect the button panel from the tv and just use the remote to operate it.

RCA 36 inch ---channels keep changing


Mine did this and I took the back off of it to remove the button panel on top of the tv. It un- snaps from the inside and pulls straight out. My channel down button was messed up but it lookd fine. It has three prongs on one side of it and two on the other. I clipped the two prong side of the switch and put it back together. Works fine now with remote. Be careful as the set picture tube holds high voltage for a long time when unpluged. Unplug overnight and then work on it.

Mike-It looks like the power supply is going on your tv-it can be replaced. This happens, usually, when little kids are playing wth the remote or power button on the tv. Turn it off and on a whole bunch of times in a row, kids love to do that, and it burns out the power supply part- to make a CRT tv like your RCA36 incher- which is a beautiful machine- I have the RCA/PROSCAN 36 incher-LAST longer...You should always wait 5 min between turning it off and on. Don't ever sell it. This one is worth fixing. It has better color and sound Than the new plasmas and lcds-The Pros know this. Be carefull, they might try and talk you out of it-so they can fix it and have it for themselves. So what if it's not High Deff. It's a great set.

This sounds like the common problem for this set. A bad connection in the sweep section or a bad flyback and a bad horizontal output transistor. Good Luck.
