    I have the same prolem with mine, the service tech said it was the transformer, charged us $75. to look at the tv then told us it needed the transformer which would cost anter $450. to fix...I think it is cheaper to buy another (the part itself is only $148.) the rest was for repairs

RCA D52W19 "crackles" and smells like its burning


Hello pmzone_guard, This problem is quite common in this TV it's due to a capacitor in the power supply being overloaded. The chassis model is a ITC222. The capacitor is located on the deflection board which is part of the power supply and should not be touch by someone that does not have TV Repair Experience, due to the fact that this area of the TV is the most dangerous. I would suggest having a qualified TV repair technician do the repair on this TV. If the problem is just that one capacitor the part will cost about $2.50 at the most, so the charge will be the cost of the part plus the labor involved. I hope this helps, Thank you, Shuttle83 http://www.electron-age-technologies-llc.com

My tv make a noise that will turn on but within 3 second shot off


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

TV shuts off by itself and has a burning smell


mine is doing the same thing but i was able to pinpoint it to a capacitor arching and smoking. haven't replaced it yet so i'm not sure if it's just a bad capacitor or a more involved issue.

TV WILL NOT TURN ON.


The Burning smell could be coming from either a defective transformer, High Voltage Divider - splitter or solder connections and resistors could be at fault as well. Leave the set unplugged until a Tech can work on it. It will not be a DIY job I'm afraid.
