Rca hd52w59 chirping sound and light 3 times no picture

chirping sound is a short of some kind, could be the flyack or horizontal output, could also be a bad picture tube or power supply capacitors, you really need a tv repairman to troubleshoot this.

My tv has a dinosaur in it.

Its a raptor most likely. But seriously, when these RCA TVs go into shutdown or fail to power up, they will try 3 times to re-establish operation. Your problem can be caused by a number of circuits. The power supply itself may be bad or the high voltage/ deflection circuit. You can visually inspect the circuit board. Some failures in these TVs will cause obviously damaged components like burned resistors and the like. The problem here is that most anything that will fail will cost some serious money. Expect to spend $300-500 to repair it or consider replacing it.

No Picture or Sound and chirping from rear

Most likely there are defective capacitors in the power supply. The chirping you are hearing is the attemt to fire up the supply. The cold may have been enough to cause the caps that were on the verge of failing to completely fail. This should be a simple repair for any shop. If you wish to attempt the repair yourself, let me know and I'll try to get you mode details on the likely defective parts.

No picture, no sound, just chirping noise coming from back

NO - - signal did nothing to the set... Sounds like a shorted HOT (horizontal output transistor) and the feedback your hearing (chirp) is on the horz. transformer as it tries repeatedly to startup... Don't allow it to do that for too long...

Zenith iqc50h95 50 in rear proj

Rainman, can`t really be of any great help on this one, both techs can be right, the chirp is exactly as you thought, the set is trying to come on but there is a short in the set and it`s shutting down because of the short, could be convergence, low voltage power supply, high voltage power supply, until a tech gets in there and starts un-loading circuits it`s impossible to say where the short is, gonna have to call someone out for this one, good luck with it, BMW Rider

Power failure lost tv

The chirpping noise is significant, it means that the smps is loading down because of a direct short, possibly in the horz. output transistor. But that is most likely not all the problem or the damage. It wasn't losing the power that hurt it was getting it back and the power most likely spiked with enough of a surge to damage the LSB (Large Signal Board)... I've seen at least a half dozen of these in the last six months with the same scenerio and the only repair for this is to replace the LSB, unfortunately they are no longer available so the next best thing is to have it rebuilt.
The part number of the LSB is 313503712571 and at Vance Baldwin they're $353.00 with a $30.00 core plus shipping. You're better off having the shop tear it down and send the board directly into PTS Electronics. At least you've got a rough idea what you're facing..
Hope this helps!

Green Power light blinks but no picture or sound with a chirping noise

That chirp is your ballast trying to fire the lamp. Sounds to me like you need a new lamp. The model should be TY-LA1000. Keep in mind though that the ballast could also be faulty, but 85% of the time it's a lamp. Pull the cover off the unit and remove the lamp. More often than not, when the lamp goes it'll actually break and be obvious.

PT-43LC14 No Picture, chirping sound when turned on

Most of the time, when there is a chirping comming from a TV set, there is a short somewhere inside the TV set. That chirping noise is the TV's power supply starting up and shutting down because of a heavy load on the power supply. These sets have no user replaceable parts inside them, so play it safe, and call out a pro to assist you in this repair. good Luck PS Please do not forget to rate this thread.
