Question about RCA D52W19 52" Rear Projection Television

T.v will not turn on

I have a RCA D52W19 52 in. Rear projection. When I turn the t.v on, it makes a weired start up noise like an electric shock coming from the back. I unplug the t.v for about a minute, and then try it again, and the samething. Now the t.v will not come on, when I do plug it in it makes three short noises and then will not start. Can anyone help me with the problem, I have heard that this well known with this t.v, but would like to know if it worth fixing, and what parts I need.

    Well I asked about this, and this t.v does use lamps, there is not even a section on the back of the t.v to replace the lamp. I thought that was the same problem, but it turned out not to be it. Any other solutions?, would be awesome.

    Thanks, Neil

    If I can find a deflection board, how much do you think it would cost me?, and is it worth fixing?

  • peoplesch755 Jun 23, 2009

    I was looking at some more comments on here, and some are saying that it could be the Flyback, do think that could have anything todo with it aswell?.


  • peoplesch755 Jun 24, 2009

    k, thanks, when I do find the deflection board, can I install it myself, or will I need a professional todo it?. Would you know where to get this part, I live in Whitby, Ontario Canada.

Look to see if the Lamp has shattered. If so, vacuum out the shattered glass pieces. Replace the lamp with a new one. Hopefully this will get you going again. Lamps are common to fail but there are not cheap. a cost of 250.00 to 350.00 is a common cost. I do not recommend the cheap aftermarket lamps. They are not reliable
Hope this helps,

    My appology, This set has CRT's in it. The biggest issue these seta have had is the deflection board failing. Wether or not you can find one is another question. Sorry I cannot be of anymore help.


  • Steve Yocum Jun 24, 2009

    The Deflection Board has the Flyback Transformer on it as well as most of the other parts that could cause the problem.

    Try Encompass Electronics 1-800-638-3328.

    You should be able replace it. Just be aware of where plug connectors go. The biggest thing to watch out for is the HV wire and the wire that goes to the Screen/Focus Block. Make sure they get seated properly.

    Good luck,

I don't know if you saw the countless other posts on this exact problem, but I 99% gaurantee a lamp is not your problem.

I believe the high pictched noise you're refering to is the high voltage when your tv attempts to power on. When you say your tv turns on, is there anything on the screen? What I have experienced with several RCA itc222 is blown capacitors. When I attempted to turn the tv on it would try 3 times and then make me wait 45 seconds to try again. I don't know what to tell you about the blue light as I have never experienced that. But here is my solution if you'd like to try and fix it yourself. Be careful, but it is very doable.

I almost garantee that you need to replace a capacitor. You can check to make sure that's what you need by unplugging the tv, taking off the back cover and feeling the top of 3 capacitors. On my d52w20, CP150 (rated at 2200uf 16V) was blown and the top was bulged out. You should also check CP120 and CP114 to see if either are blown. I don't have a clear picture of where it's located, but I have a picture of what you should see after you take off the back cover.

In the middle of the picture you see an aluminum heatsink in the shape of a 'C' with the opening facing away from you. That is where CP150 is located. CP120 and CP114 should be located nearby, but if you can feel a bulge on any of the tops of those 3 capacitors replacing them should fix your problem. Replace the existing capacitors with a higher voltage rating of either 25v or 35v.

"4 capacitors on the power/deflection board. CP110 220uf 200v. CP120 220uf 35 Volts. CP114 220uf 35 volts. CP150 2200 16 volt. also check entire delfection board for cold solder especially around flyback. bad connections here can cause problems like some of the fp fuses blowing and cutting off convergence supply"

    The repairs should cost you less than $20 at most. You can order a few of each on ebay and save yourself some money the next time this happens, if it happens again. But like you said, this is a very common problem for this tv and the itc222 chassis. Hope this helps.

My RCA projection tv makes a loud buzzing, humming noise. Does as soon as turned on even before picture comes on, does not stop till tv is turned off.

buzzing noise is cause by small electrical arc inside the unit or a problem in your audio circuit.if you can open the unit up and check if its an electrical arc.

RCA P46920 TV will not turn on, it makes a beeping noise.

Shorted horizontial output transistor q14401 -I think- and bad flyback transformer(high voltage transformer).The noise is the power supply starting and shutting down very quickly because of the shorted transistor.Very common problem,but some of the flybacks are no longer available from RCA.Sometimes you can use generic but questionable life on some of these.
