Thats the box capacitor. you can try resoldering it, but its most likely needing replacement if the leads have black around it. If you do need a new one you can get the box capacitor at the following link.

I have a 52in Rca Tv and the color went bad. The Tv set would not turn on. I know a little about electornics and I lookek inside and knew I could do nothing without a diagram.

If by saying that the color went bad you mean that the three colors won't line up or converge properly. Then maybe I can help you. What you need to do is to remove the rear cover and disconnect all connectors to the deflection pcb. Carefully remove it by pressing the retainer clips around the edges back while gently pulling up on the circuit board. Once removed from plastic frame you can flip the board over and start soldering. Solder all pins of the high voltage transformer and any grey rectangular capacitors that are around it. Also, replace the two green capacitors in the power supply if the top is bulging or domed. Next there are three small brown fuses next to the transformer. The middle one is probably open. It is a 400 milli-amp fuse and can be replaced with a 1/2 or 1 amp fuse. Make sure that you resolder the pins of the grey capacitors located between the metal heatsinks near the transformer. If you don't resolder these connections you may have to dispose of the tv when the solder works its way free. This is good free advice and will fix the problem if followed carefully. Contact me if you need any other help. Good luck, Russmann.

Turns on stays on for about 5-10 min then shuts off will turn back on in about 2 min 52" rca projection

For have two bad electrolytic capacitors. If you change them now you may be able to save this TV from a bigger problem. Like a new flyback and a retrace cap. If you can..look inside the back cover and look for two bulging caps. I'm telling you what I've heard other TV techs discuss.

The picture on the tv goes off and on but the sound stays on. after it does that for awhile it will work fine for quite some time and then it will do it some more.RCA DLP

The lamp already need replacement.To replace your lamp you need:
  • OEM RCA DLP lamp
  • flat-head screwdriver
  • T-10 & T-15 torx driver
  • pliers.
Steps: Use a pair of latex gloves.
  1. Locate the lamp through the rectangular at the back of your TV.
  2. Loosen the screw with your flat-head screwdriver.
  3. Use the two "clips" to open the compartment door.
  4. Loosen the screw on each side of the lamp enclosure.
  5. Gently pull back the tray to remove the lamp.
  6. Visually inspect the area labeled “Clip.” They are on the top and bottom of the enclosure. Between them, there is about a 3′ gap where you need to push in with your thumb to be able to pull out the rear lamp cover.
  7. Unscrew the lamp connectors with your pliers and torx driver and remove the three screws.
  8. Replace the old lamp with the new one. Be sure to put the washer back and all other parts properly.
  9. Reinstall in reverse order.

Exact Same Problem. TV turns on, sparks, then shuts off.

Sparks and burning plastic

Leave the back off and try to power the set ready to pull the plug. Whatever is sparking/smoking is your bad part. On this TV I would suspect the flyback transformer or grey rectangular polyester capacitor mounted in front of a heatsink on the left.

Rca l26wd26d does not stay on

I had a similar problem with my Phillips 42 in. LCD HD TV.

Here's the problem. The Power Supply Board. I opened my TV up(warranty was up of course) and found several bad capacitors. Phillips and several other companies were sold capacitors that although were highly rated failed within 5 years because of a lack of preservatives. All sorts of electronic equipment is now being effected due to these defective capacitors.
1. Take it in and have it fixed
2. Open it up, check the board for faulty capacitors(bulged or leaking) Buy a new Power supply board and install it.
3. Remove PSB, remove faulty capacitors and replace with compatible new ones.

Hope this helps

RCA television 20" TV/DVD C231 new, no picture, only stays on 15 sec.

This happened to me. Unplugg the TV and let it sit idle for ATLEAST 20min.  Remove the rear cover of the TV. BECAREFUL NOT TO TOUCH THE TUBE OR COMPASITOR THERE MAY TIL BE POWER TO IT!  You should see a (3) prong wire that is black+white+and grey. That wire is most likely disconnected. You will see where it plugs into the board.
