Question about RCA D61W135D 61 in. TV/DVD Combo

1 Answer

Samsung 1080i 52 inch

We have been having multiple problems with our Samsung TV and the latest problem the repair shop can't seem to correct.  When the TV has been off for a while, it has a very loud snap when it is turned on.  Once on it seems fine.  There have also been instances where it will continue to snap every few seconds until you turn it off and turn it on a few times.  Any assistance you can provide would be most helpful... thanks!

Re: Samsung 1080i 52 inch

This sounds like a high voltage discharge is occurring! Ask your repair guy to check the PTC and all the chassis return circuit black leads and the integrity of the connections to the discharge "spring" across the back of the picture tube. It could also be caused by poorly connected or incorrectly seated wires from the EHT transformer to picture tube pcb. These are dangerous voltages ( 20000 + volts)we are talking about, under no circumstances should an unqualified person attempt this kind of repair, also as after checking all connections, the final test must be with the set open in darkness for observation purposes.

Good luck with this one

Colors are overlapping

Is it bowed top and bottow? One fix and a common problem with this set is there is a fuse right next to the flyback the seems to open because of broken solder joints. There is 3 off them and the middle one seems to blow all the time. Check the fuse with a meter and see if its open. If it is, follow the next set of directions.

To fix this, you will need to resolder the flyback and several other components. Then jump the fuse or replace it. I have personally done both but I don't like to jump the fuse because it defeats its purpose as a fuse.

You will need a T-20 and a T-10 screw driver to take the back off. The flyback with be on the left hand side of the set with a red wire coming off the top of it and the fuses will be located an inch or so to the right of the flyback. If you have schematics, sorry I don't know the designations of the components. Another problem, I have seen is on the right hand side of the set. There is a ribbon cable about 2 inches wide. The topside board(Convergence board). That connector is also known to go bad as well. Replace the connector.

RCA D52W136D 52 inch has no green

Hello sjustinh,

It sounds like your color processor may have gone bad or at least the circuitry connected to it. To solve this problem you will need a schematic, a digital storage oscilloscope, a signal generator, and a multimeter. Now if you don't know what these devices are and do not have a background in electronics, I would suggest that you take the TV set to a qualified TV repair person. I am not trying to put you down or anything its just that this problem requires that you open up the set and using the schematic trace down the signals that control the LCD screen and find out the condition of the signals that display green. Since green is the result of the algebraic addition of red and blue, you may have a problem in the circuitry that controls that function.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Tv will not turn on

Hello racecar3,

This denotes a power supply problem. It could be as simple as a blown fuse or as complex as a problem in your horizontal drive section of your Tv causing the shutdown circuit to activate. I would suggest that first you unplug the TV and do a visual inspection to see if you can see any blown fuses in the TV. If not then put the rear TV cover back on and then take the TV to a qualified TV repair shop to have them take a look at it, and repair it.

I hope this helps,
Thank you,

RCA 52 inch hd

You can try unplugging it, then try powering it on unplugged (to discharge any energy stored in capacitors) and let it sit for a few minutes. All circuitry should reset after this. Plug it back in and if its still no different, it'll have to be repaired. Sorry!

Convergence problem

This is a vertical problem it seem like the vertical coupling capacitor has gone bad. If you do not have experience in electronics "DONT TRY TO REPAIR THIS SET" because of the danger involved, take it (The TV set) to a qualified TV repair shop in your area.
