I get no picture from my rca 52 inch tv

Have you taken the back off to see what is visible to you ? it could be a high voltage transformer or bad connections on the bottom of the SMPS deflection board being the board on the left looking in to the back of set. or a you should be able to see something burnt or a smell of the area some times helps to locate what you don't notice .
but most likely the problem in on that circuit board .

I have a rca d52w23 while i was watching tv in shut off and there was like a smoke smell I mean I turn it on and it shuts off by it self is it worth fixing it and what can cause this problem

Where there is smoke something burned--unplug set for safety and if curious open rear cover and look at boards near rear of set for a burnt part--that will usually determine if worth fixing or not.

When turning TV on, Green Light comes on and then a fizzy, static sound coming from the bottom side of tv. then the green light goes off and then I smell like a burnt electrical smell. Can anyone tell me...

back or front of tv .... this could be a blown tube if coming from front. from back there is a high chance this is a blown flyback. i have also seen a blown capacitor that blows a hole in the board. be careful leave unpluged.

Rca p52770eb wont come on sparks in the back about 2 inches from the power cord inside the tv

On some of the RCA televisions, the Hi Volt transformer will go bad and make a sizzling or popping sound. Most often, it will smell burnt when this happens.

PT5299HD My big screen was on for about 2 hours. The picture was great and then, suddenly it had a bad electrical smell and a blurry screen. Any Ideas?

You are in need of electrical service. Hopefully it has a warrenty. To many possible causes to guess, but the burnt smell, suggests a qualified technician should repair this for you. Good luck.

Sony KP-41S3U

Good Day;
On that model look for a small yellow cap, half the size of coin, dime. LOOK very closely and you will see a small burnt spot on the cap. The TV uses about 4 of them, they are 120/110 @ 2 kv. There are located in the high voltage circuit.
This the most common, it could be flyback or HV devider.
Good Luck and Day, big irish.
LET ME know.
