    I have the same problem with my RCA P52930BL TV. I've been without a working TV for several months now (researching and trying to justify the cost of a new LCD HDTV). "WhlzAtlt" indicates RCA's are known for bad Horizontal output transistors, Flybacks and high voltage splitters going bad on these models... Is there a way to troubleshoot this? Where can I get a schematic for this model?

RCA's are known for bad Horizontal output transistors, Flybacks and high voltage splitters going bad on these models. That hum/buzz is the powersupply trying to turn on.

Humming sound


Samsung states - A buzzing sound from your plasma TV is normal. It is caused by the electrical charges used to create the images on the screen. The buzzing, however, should not be so loud that you can hear it when the volume on the TV is set at normal levels.It is also important to determine the type of buzzing sound. A sound like a ground hum is completely normal. This buzzing can originate near the power cord connection or from the SMPS board position on the upper back of the TV. The buzz will be more audible as contrast increases on the screen, most notably when displaying an all white screen. If the buzzing sound is loud, you may have the Contrast set too high. Lower the contrast to reduce or eliminate the buzzing.You may also have loud buzzing if the rear of your Plasma TV is too close to a wall or other hard surface. Try moving your TV away from the wall until the buzzing is minimized. [1]
If the buzzing is at a higher frequency and resembles a crackling sound (like the sound of Velcro being pulled apart), and originates from the upper middle back of the TV, you likely have a failing SMPS board. Place a support call with Samsung to have the SMPS board replaced.FP-T5084 Have a known buzzing problem with a very simple fix.If the buzzing is coming from the left or right sides of the rear and the volume can be changed by pressing lightly on those locations, you are probably hearing the vibration of the grounding springs on the back panel. Call Samsung (or whoever) and have a technician confirm the problem. The easiest fix is to insulate the offending spring by applying some felt tape.

Wont turn on ,bulb ok what next


Hi,do you hear any strange noises? If you hear clicking or like wanting to turn on it could be the board that powers the lamp it's called the ballast.Here's the instructions to replace it :http://www.fixyourdlp.com/guides/samsung/bp47-00033a.php Any buzzing,humming,or high pitch sounds? If you do it could be an issue with the color wheel.The color wheel is a rotating disc that has a gamma of colors it spins at high rpms.The light of the lamp goes through it to create the colors on your tv.When it starts to go bad you will get color distortion ,black and white picture and sometimes you will hear humming noises.

LOUD BUZZING/HUMMING SOUND- CAN HEAR OVER AUDIO


have someone check speaker ground to the TV chassis. Your speakers are picking up reverb from the Video Signal.

Make sure you have firmly seated the new Lamp. The next step is to go to the rear of the set and put your ear next to the Lamp Door while turning "ON" the tv with your tv remote.
You should hear a short buzzing sound. That is the Ballast "Exciter" firing up to light the Lamp. If you do not hear this buzzing then you probably have a bad Ballast. Ballast part# is BP47-00037A

Samsung HLN507WX lamp not coming on.


The Ballast is the next logical step but more often the Color Wheel has gone bad. Try this first. Make sure that the Lamp Door has been reinstalled and the screw has been tightened.
Next while you are at the back of the set listen for a short buzzing sound while you turn ON the set with the remote or have another person turn it on. If you hear a short buzzing sound then your Ballast is ok. The reason the lamp does not turn on is because if the Color Wheel does not spin up then the Digital bd will not let the set turn on. Color Wheel part# is BP96-00250A. Ballast part# is BP47-00008A

TV makes humming noise, lamp light is blinking, does not turn on


Your color wheel needs to be changed. Mine just did the same thing. I changed mine, and the buzzing sound went away, however now my picture washes out with light or yellow colors. The darks look green and purple also.
