Question about RCA D61W20 61" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

RCA "61 Television Model # D61W20

My television will not turn on completly. Once I hit the power button the green light does come on but starts to make a loud screeching noise and the picture nor the volume comes on at all. The green light stays on until I turn it off, but I get nuthing. I recently opened the back and noticed that one piece in specific is creating a spark because the edge of this piece has melted,( obviously not creating a connection, causing the spark when tried) however I dont know the name of the piece in the tray located at the bottom of the screen. How can i get the names of the pieces in order to order and fix myself. Looks simple since every piece is a simple snap in the tray. Clueless on what anything down there is called. PLEASE HELP!!!!

This part is known a flyback transformer ... the part that generated high voltage..(serval thosand volt) for the picture tubes..and as a technician i would not call them easy to replace. usally when you replace this you replace another component called a horizontal output transistor which becomes shorted. also getting the flyback is tricky.. there several version of it.

D61w20 rca turns on and off

I have a RCA D61W20 chassis ITC222, I had the same problem and my repair guy found out the blue bulb was the main problem, along with replacing some transisters on one of the power boards, He also had to adjust the service convergence (not auto convergence). Works great now!
