When turning on green light flashes 3 times and loud screech

I have a RCA D52W27D when I try to turn the TV the screen never turns on and the green light turns on and there is a loud screech and then the green light turn off, this happens 3 times ad then nothing. I noticed a slight electrical burning smell from the back, and I tried to turn on again and noticed sparks coming out the back with the screech. I pulled the rear panel off and tried to turn it on again and the screech and flash is coming from something that looks like a "transformer" type thing with a heavy red wire and a slightly smaller balck wire coming out of it and soddered to a circuit board. My question is, what is it and can I replace it and is there a chance that there may be other things wrong with it, because worked fine before the accured. thank you for any advise you can give.

    I have the same tv and it does not turn on anymore after it sizzled, crackled and emitted a slight amount of smoke from the back of the set. Tv is about 4.5 years old. I think a recall is in order! Maybe we can save someone from a television fire one day.

My Samsung TV won't turn on


Please describe the problem more accurately. Flashing red usually means 'stand-by' state, flashing blue/green - starting up. When (during that) do you have a sound? Are there any 'high voltage' sounds like soft screeching from the screen? Is it LCD or LED?

POWER LIGHT FLASHES 3-4 TIMES AND SOUNDS LIKE TRYING TO COME ON B


This will need a capacitor replaced on the power/deflection board. (CP150) This is a very common problem on these sets. Service man will probably charge at least $200

My RCA is screeching


To install the color wheel, turn off and unplug the tv, take off the lower back casing (17 star type screws), remove the lamp door, remove the lower back casing. Look just left of the lamp you will see 3 smaller star type screws near a small circuit board (which is on the color wheel), remove those screws unplug cable from color wheel, unplug other end of 2nd cable from tv circuit board (just to the upper left nearest to the color wheel.

All you have to do is install the color wheel, plug in both cables, put the back on and place the lamp door back in its position, the lamp door pushes in a lillte blue lever which allows the lamp bulb to light up.

I'm in the process of doing the same myself on my RCA same model. Where did you buy the color wheel from?

Green light flashes


Same thing here....RCA tells me to count the times the light flashes as it apparently is set to "tell" you what the problem is.......3 to 5 flashes means your lamp is messed up.....they are over $300 to replace!
