Re: rca d52w26 makes a long whistle noise

I have an RCA model D52W26. The green light comes on when powered on but turns off within seconds. No picture, no sound. Just a squealing noise then nothing. Any thoughts on a fix?

TV comes on n goes off,does 3 times

This is the Famous 3 strikes and out for RCA's--it tries to come on 3 times and if fails shutdown occurs.

The high pitched sound may be a short or could be something arcing--if the sound comes from near the very front of set--could be the HV splitter this set has arcing.

Picture does not show and power goes off.

There is a capacitor that started out with a bad solder conection and is now burning the board. This capacitor should be replaced.

Loud humming noise while rca Mod hd50lpw166 is running

There is a excellent chance it is the Color Wheel in the Optical Block. Some of the older models are not too bad to replace it, on the newer one though it is a major tear down. I would have a RCA Servicer come out to verify and get a estimate. Chances are do to the cost of Optical Block, it would be close to replacement of the Set.
Hope this helps,

TV is making a loud high-pitched noise that goes on for about 2 - 3 minutes. Its coming from the lower back part of the TV not through the speakers. Sometimes the noise pulsates and makes the picture jump...

The flyback is getting ready to fail. Its a very easy and inexpensive repair. You need flyback 259296 and CP150 you can get the parts at the following link with free step by step instructions.

My tv is making a loud roaring noise in the back

I had the same problem, it was the color wheel (part # 270916). The bearings go and it starts making noise. It was fairly easy to replace.
