Unplug set and do not plug again---something has burned so there is a risk of fire---unless you are familiar with fixing sets consider having a tech come out or take set to a shop for a estimate.

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.

50' rca projection tv

your high voltage splitter is probably bad, or you high voltage flyback transformer (deflection board). not sure of your model #, is it correct? It may be a lamp but you shouldnt smell burning. You can unplug and let it discharge and find where the burnt up parts are to find your problem. Follow your nose, it always knows!

High-voltage can hurt/kill you.. be very careful

TV shuts off by itself and has a burning smell

mine is doing the same thing but i was able to pinpoint it to a capacitor arching and smoking. haven't replaced it yet so i'm not sure if it's just a bad capacitor or a more involved issue.

51 big screen apex tv, convergence or verticle IC?

If the lines are thin and close together running horizontally, it may be the vertical driver, but that usually takes out the resistor and sometimes the diode in the B+ for the vert. Also you must replace the caps that caused the problem in the first place.
