I wrapped electrical tape around the transformer in the back, that stops the sparks, don't ask me how is that so. I just thought, the elect. tape would prevent the static from traveling to any other parts of the circuit inside of the tv. Don't try it if you think it's not going to work. It is dangerous and I got zapped 2 times before I got it right. be careful

    I have a 27 inch rca, RCA needs to look into these problems. I have a 37 inch HD flatscreen with no problems yet. Hopefully I get enough experience in fixing electronics before I start getting issues with it.

yes bulbs dont smell unless they pop plus its 3 bulbs in there, plus the tv would still have power/standby lights, and it's not that type of smell, replace the bulb but im sure this will not fix the problem, also my experience with dlp set it is often not worth repair, good luck you need more help or question just ask good luck

It was on and then it went off... now when I turn it on the green light comes on and then it make a funny whirling noise and then 5 seconds later it does it again but the picture never comes back on and...


the same thing happend to me you need a new lamp. Your lamp burned out you can buy a new one at a electronic parts store or find it online or call the tv company and see if you can buy one dont turn it on any more, it could be bad for the tv.

Panasonic PT-51HX40B turns itself off and has no video, no lights


The buzzing noise that you were earing came from a bad ballast, and because of the bad ballast your lamp must have got out also, and that is were you are getting the burned smel from and also that is why you are no longer geteting any picture either.

So in this case you would have to replace the ballast board and the lamp on your tv set.

TV wont turn on, makes buzzing noise and shuts off


I have two RCA HD52W59 TV's. I have had one for 3 years and one 4 years. The one I have had for 4 years is giving me the problem. Last week the tv turned off while watching it. It wouldnt come right back on. 10 minutes later we tried and it worked fine. the other night the kids were watching and it turned off and smelled like something burning. I tried turning it right back on and got no power at all. I tried to turn it on two days later and it made a buzzing noise and the green light went out. Never did get a picture, no powering up on the screen. Any ideas? Don't want to spend alot of money. Really loved the TV hope it isnt junk now. Better yet I hope the same thing doesnt happen to the other one I have.

Tv wont power up makes a noise but no picture


Your power transformer is likely shot. It'll cost at least $200 to have it replaced. Someone can come to your house to diagnose it. Usually costs around $65.

I suggest you sit down for this one! Even a small amount of any liquid on set's internals can reak havoc. What you smelled were components shorting out and possibly burning. Depending on where the water spilled, you may have just one PC board fried, but many circuits are interconnected, which means possible cascade damage to others. Never place plants anything containing liquid on electronic equipment.
