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 a Sony KP-65XBR10W 65-inch HDTV - green flashes shut down


Most likely you have a Green CRT that is failing. Sony no longer stocks the CRT assemblies for most of the older Projection sets. Instead what is required is to send the Green CRT assembly back to Sony (minus the Delta Lens), so they can replace the Tube on the Optical Coupler. This is a major cost of about 400.00 to 500.00 for the CRT plus the the tear down and reassembly time. Then you need to do a major Convergence alignment because the other two CRTs are aligned to the Green CRT. Due to the cost and the fact that Sony will not be supporting the older sets much longer, I would not invest the money into it.
I hope this helps,

I had this problem and I took off the back panel. I followed the power cord to its place of origin in the back of the TV.

TV has alittle dark haze,not bad,9inchs in from side,top to Bott


Probably the light tunnel. The tunnel is a square tube made up of 4 mirrors glued together.

It looks like this from the side: |_| (with a piece on top too.)
When the glue breaks down, it shifts inside the little mirror holder. The shifted mirrors looks like this /_/ what you are seeing is the shadow of the tilted mirror tunnel.
ON the RCA's there's not a good fix.

RCA's response:
"Ok, well sadly they do not offer the light tunnel anymore, which is what you need. Sadly you would be rendered to get a whole new light engine assembly. That would be the D.N.D module, light tunnel,color wheel,optic spanner, and oci. mirror. Your best bet would be to search ebay2_bing.gif for a broken engine and replace it that ways."

That is the ONLY response I got from them.

I took the set apart and found the 4 tiny mirrors. I will be attempting to epoxy them together. (The set is dead anyway, why not try?)

Dim picture from one broken lamp??


The red CRT is most likely not the culprit. If water got on to any of the boards such as the red CRT driver board it could damage it wich also at the same time can load down voltages (200 volts etc) that can have a global affect on the other CRT's. Changing any on the CRT's by the average consumer is NOT recommended because you are dealing with a device that requires 30 KV (thats thirty thousand) volts to make it light up. Take these as warnings and consult with a technician.
