RCA rear projection TV dead HD52W27D

My TV recently died, it was turning its self off when you would first start TV and then it seem to warm up and stay on fine. It has been doing this for 2 months and then it made a noise two sounds like a hissing sound and turned off for good I went to it and smelled a electric burn smell. I want to know what should I try to fix before replacing the TV?

I would try replaceing the power supply. You could give RCA a call to find out how much the power supply would cost. They can also assist you in purchasing the part. Their phone number is 1-877-794-7977. I wish I could be of more service I hope that this is the cause. Please rate this post. Thank you.

Hello my name is Tim Ehrhart and I hope this helps To purchase one from Thomson:

1) Determine your model and chassis by reading them off the serial number plate on the back or side of your set.

2) Go to www.thomsonnetwork.com

3) Click on "service cd's"

4) Choose your country (US/Canada/Latin America)

5) Enter your model or chassis ID and choose the appropriate search type (chassis is better to search for than model -- see note below)

6) Put a "check" in the box next to "service information"

7) Click the "go" button next to "search"

8) Put "1" in the quantity box next to the "service information (CD)" you want to buy and then click "add" to add to cart

9) On the upper right of the window, it should say "Items in Order:1"; just below it there is a "go" button next to "view order" -- click "go"

10) Fill out the orderform and submit


NOTE:

RCA has lots of different model numbers for the same model of television set. As I understand it, they assign "personal" model numbers to each of the big-box vendors they sell through. AFIK, this is only to make inventory control easier. However, they do not have all of these variations listed in their service information database. The quickest way to determine the service manual you need is by reading the chassis ID off of the serial number on your set, and then purchasing the service manual for it.

There is no unique model for each service manual. Each model is based on a chassis. There may be 20 models with the same chassis. There is a service manual for each chassis. Purchase the service manual for your chassis -- it doesn't matter which model you purchase it for, The ESIITC222 service manual (Electronic Service Information ITC222) is the same for a D52W20, D56W20, etc.

Sounds Like you burnt out the circuit board. Could not tell you what one there is three in the tv. So I would be a guess on the one that burnt out. If I had to change one it would be the one that powers the TV itself. Hope this helps You. In my opinion I would buy a new TV and try to save on the repairs that might not fix the TV.

Good Luck with your problem.

I have a rca 52" porjection tv that turns on and off when it gets warm, and it sometimes turns its self on sometimes. what could be wrong with it?


I'm taking it shouts itself off when it gets a little warmer than warm. It may do that to stop it from getting to hot. As far as turning on by itself? I live real close to my neighbors and sometimes when they hit their remote, it changes my VCR On. Even static charges and waves near the area can cause your TV remote to mal-function. Are you close to any antennas?

I just fixed my D52W20 by replacing three CAPS. Two of them were vented(bulging at the top). I replaced CP150 2200uf 16v with a 2200uf 50V, CP110 220uf 200v and CP114 220uf 35v. It was also recommended to replace CP120 but I did not have one. Check the green CAPS and replace any that are vented.

RCA 60" projection tv Turns on and starts flipping channels by it self


replace the keyboard or remove the switches for channel up/down to see which one is bad. if neither does it, there are some components around the microprocessor that can cause this.
