Question about RCA D61W20 61" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

RCA D61W20B I have the same problems with my RCA D61W20B. I press the power button, it tries to power up 3 times, then nothing, but if you keep trying about 4 times, it powers up and works fine. I get no squealing noise, just hear a very light tick when the green light on the power switch lights up. When it does come on you hear the what I think are the tubes powering up, a very light cracking noise, kinda like the noise the older glass tube tvs made. This is a great tv when its working. I actually got it for free, it was being thrown out at a tv repair shop and I stopped to inquire about it. The guy said it was deemed to expensive to repair. It looks brand new, I brought it home. I tinker with stuff alot, so I removed the rear panels blew out some dust, dead bugs, unplugged and plugged in wires, then the set came on. When I do get it to turn on it will run all day with no problems. The condition it was in and the way it operates, it seems too nice to toss out. I have owned many RCA products and have had good service from them. Do you think this could be capacitor or weak solder joint?

    I removed the rear cover and found that cp150 is puffed up on the top a little. What are the part numbers for each capacitor?

    Does anyone sell remanufactured deflection boards?

    Same problem as the others with the deflection board.

    Is there a manufacturer? Where can I get the part?

On the Deflection board CK capacitors cp150,cp114 cp120,If cp 150 is puffed up on top it is bad so replace all 3 capacitors 2200uf 16 use 25v and Two left are 220uf 35v Resolder pinns on flyback Transfomer and when re hooking board back up make sure you have second ribbon connector in good. Board next to Deflection is the SSB it has turners on it where you hook cable.

    Cost of Rebulit Deflection Board was 197.00 sure it has gone up since then, anyway replace those 3 capacitors and your set will be Fixed.Radio Shack might have capacitors 2200uf 25v on other 2 caps 220uf 35v.

TV does not turn on model RCA D61W20B

first check all fuses they are small, square ,RED and can be confused with the square small caps. the sizzling is prob. the flyback transformer (what the h.v. wires from each tube plugs into) if you are only getting green then tv shuts down or is dead now. i would replace any bad fuses and replace the flyback transformer. also make sure you do a very good visual inspection of all the boards.
