Dead tv We were watching TV with no problems whatsoever. There was a "pop" then the TV went completely dead, no power, nothing. We tried replacing the lamp, but still nothing...any idea what happened? It's a Panasonic PT-50LC14 that's only 2-3 years old. Thanks!

Re: dead tv

Sounds like a power supply problem. I am sure that the pop is the fuse blown. If the fuse is blown, this means that there is a short somewhere. Rear projection TV are like LCD projectors. And all of them use Switch mode power supply. If you are lucky, there is a chance that a protection device (like a varistor) is sorted. This means that removing this, even without replacing will bring your TV to life, however... Most probably the power supply is defective.

No power to rca rear projection tv

Good day!!!!

That problem is usually cause of faulty capacitors on the power supply board..

Just follow this instruction to fix your TV..

1. Open the back cover of your TV.
2. Look at the power supply board..Its normally connected to the power cord..
3. After that,,try to look at the actual image of capacitors if it is bulged on the top so that you can easily determine the bad capacitors..
4. After that,,try to replaced the bad capacitors using soldering iron and soldering lead..replaced the capacitors only with the same type ratings and value..
5. Some of the capacitors not bulged so its better if have a capacitance meter

WD-62525 went dead. Can a burned out lamp cause this?

No, a burned lamp would cause the power source of the tv to go in reduced mode and that would be clearly identifiable by the blinking lights on the status and lamp indicators.
If the tv is dead (no lights whatsoever)it means that the power source has failed completely - this is a big defect, that must be investigated by a pro: the origin of the failure must be found and the faulty part replaced replaced or any new part you just put in blindly will be instantly fried. At least the power source board will have to be replaced and that will cost you around $250.

Rca d52130 herd pop tv went dead

dear friend your tv has a defective fly-back transformer 99 times out of 100 that is your problem.
get the model number and call your local electronics parts distribuitor to see if they have it, if not call tritronics 1800-638-3328 they probably have it and is not too expensive.less than $ when you get here is the million dollar question can you do it yourself? if you can't call the repairman and by having the fly-back that will decrese the cost of the repair, is just the labor.

good luck

No power

I also have this television and the power just went out. But, before there was a smell. I did not hear the pops. The television is 3 years old.

What do you suggest. What could be the problem. It appears that others have had this problem.

No Power

Your set is going into high voltage shut down. Might have been the high voltage transformer that has gone bad.
