MY 52 INCH RCA HDTV-MODEL #D52420 POWER BUTTON WILL COME ONE THEN QUICKLY OFF, THE THERE IS A STRONG BURNING SMELL.


First is to unplug the set and remove back cover---some of these have a resistor in right rear area(as seen from back) that smokes.

If that---the high voltage splitter block up at the very front of the set behind the front grill and inspection plate behind that is burnt. It gets the resistor.

IF ITS SMOKING DO NOT LEAVE IT PLUGGED IN OR KEEP TRYING TO TURN IT ON--POTENTIAL FOR A FIRE.

It was on and then it went off... now when I turn it on the green light comes on and then it make a funny whirling noise and then 5 seconds later it does it again but the picture never comes back on and...


the same thing happend to me you need a new lamp. Your lamp burned out you can buy a new one at a electronic parts store or find it online or call the tv company and see if you can buy one dont turn it on any more, it could be bad for the tv.

Started smoking out of the back


Unfortunately RCA are a cheap and nasty budget end television. If it is out of warranty there is little you can do, apart from having it repaired or buying a new one.

The troubling fact is that it sounds like it may have been about to set on fire. This gives concern that it might be, or should be the subject of a manufacturer recall. So in your case, I would contact RCA once more and ask if your set is the subject of a recall? If they say no, say to them that you are going to contact the Recall Agency, because you think this set may have been about to burst into flames. See how fast they respond :>)

Check the link for agencies in your country.
