Working on my HD52W67....Question!

Before I start working on this set, besides it being unplugged, do I need to be aware of any stored electricity, or is unplugging it enough?

Hi, define what your working on ? In general if the AC cords been removed for half an hour the only "stored voltages" will be in the larger electrolytic capacitors which can bite you pretty good but only if you get one hand on the positive pin and one hand on ground, using common sense is your best approach, use one hand to probe around inside the set and discharge large value caps with a high wattage resistor before removing them, video-tek

How do I access the service menu on my RCA HD52W67??

Simple. You DO NOT ! I repeat DO not attempt this.
RCA has some of the most difficult Service menus in the industry.
Plus Service menus will not solve any service problem.
They are for setting up a working TV only.
Call an RCA Service center.

I have an RCA HD52W67 and it just started to have

I'm having the same problem with my RCA HD52W67 rear projection TV and I've notice this problem is listed with my other owners of this product. I have no experience with fixing electronics. Sould I try this myself or take it to an expert? Has anyone fixed this problem? What is an estimated cost involved, if I take my set to an expert? Any advice with the HD52W67 is great appreciated.

Dryer won't start

1) Be sure your clothes dryer is plugged in and turned on. If necessary, check the receptacle it's plugged into for power, using a working lamp, appliance, or voltage tester. Be aware that most electric dryers don't plug into standard 120-

volt receptacles; they operate on 240 volts. 

Make sure the door is closed completely, the timer is advanced to the proper position, and the correct cycle is selected.

2) If the receptacle is dead, check the circuit breaker or fuse that serves that circuit.

3) Unplug the dryer and check the power cord and the terminal block. If necessary, replace the cord.

4) Open the door, and check the door switch. Press and release it; it should click each time. If it doesn't, it's probably broken.

If you're experienced at home repair, you can remove the switch, test it, and replace it if needed; otherwise, call an appliance repair service.

5) If the dryer still doesn't work, a thermal fuse or other electrical or electronic part may be faulty. The thermal fuse, found in the back cover panel, can stop working if the dryer overheats. Call an appliance service person if you suspect an electrical part may be malfunctioning.

From left hand side 10 keys not working

You might check settings first. The keyboard might be set to a mode where those keys have some function besides notes. Try a master reset and see if hings start working.

If it was working and now those keys don't, a fault has probably developed. There may be problems with connections to the keyboard, or there's been a component failure.

Sometimes getting into these things and accessing the keyboard is a challenge, and it's possible to do more harm than good. If it needs repair, you're probably better off taking the keyboard to a musician's store in your area and asking them to give you an estimate for the work (or to recommend a servicer if they don't do the work themselves).

Okay, usually the parts that go bad to make the convergence option drop from the menu are the following. Fusible Link (FL1231) Diode (DP1231) and capacitor ( C1230) the numbers in parenthesis are the actual component locations on the board. These items fail causing the set to think its a direct view set instead of a projection unit.

If you have "good hands" and a technical orientation, you can manage it by yourself (board and heating element). In any case, before buying a new heating element, check element's resistance with a multi-meter, maybe there is no problem with it. Be aware that before starting work on the machine, you should unplug its power cable !!!! In case you will need for an heating element, you can contact any washing machine spare parts store and by giving them your machine's details you will get it. Good luck!

Philips projection died

They only way to really narrow down a service problem such as a dead set would be to first get a downloadable schematicfor like 20 bucks, I have seen them even less expensive! Then start troubleshooting the power supply to see if the SMPS is functioning or shut down because of excessive current draw or a short circuit somewhere else in the set. If you get a schematic and need a hand I will be happy to point you in several spots that need to be checked first BUT you must be aware of the HIGH VOLTAGE thats stored inside these sets even when they are unplugged,, If it bits you, You will know it!! believe you me!!! Good Luck
