Question about RCA HD61LPW165 61" Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Audio fuzzy or cuts out

Sometimes the audio has a loud buzz noise when watching a show or when first turned on (when turning on with this problem - it emits a high pitch tone). Turning the set off, wait 3 minutes and turn on again and the problem is still there. Wait an hour and maybe the set works fine. Also, selecting the mute has no effect, the buzz is still there. The only way to stop the buzz is to select "Front Speaker external input". Using the sound signal out to an amp and back to the speaker works fine.

Re: Audio fuzzy or cuts out

Could have a loose connection in the audio section or a problem with the output IC . Also does this happen on the RF input and your A/V inputs or just one of these. If its the A/V inputs only your having this problem check your cables .

RCA P52755 ST buzzing audio

Most likely the color wheel is the problem. This part can be replaced but is difficult and requires considerable dissasembly and then a difficult alignment process. Reccomend an RCA auth. service center for this repair.

No picture no sound loud humming sound for a short period when you turn it on than a orange light flashing at bottom where the blue light is when you turn it on.

AV cables reversed perhaps. Sounds like VIDEO (Yellow, Green, Blue or Red) cable is plugged into the AUDIO section. Perhaps you have switched the RED (Left audio) cable plugged into the RED (Component) Video cables. This would account for the loud buzz and since the set isn't getting an image it goes into standby mode. Just a thought.

My samsung 42 inch hdtv is making a buzzing noise

First. The whirring or buzzing sound you hear is the Color Wheel and it needs to be replaced. Second, since I do not know when and if the original lamp has been replaced it is a good idea to replaced the lamp. The bad Color Wheel is the one causing the set to shut down.

Loud buzzing noise which became a very loud screech over the last week. Turning tv off and on seemed to remedy it. Today screen was only black and white, now no video only audio. Is this the picture...

This TV uses a lamp and color wheel. the color wheel is likely the problem since it is known to make noise over time and will eventually sieze. The repair is in the $400 range.

Buzzing/humming noise that increases as you raise volume. So loud that you can not even watch tv

Hello snow1525,

You may have a torn speaker element. This is usually the cause of buzzing noise in the sound, also you may have a bad capacitor in your audio section. This is what I would suggest doing as a test open the front bottom panel of your TV and visually inspect the speakers for signs of ripping and or tearing in the speaker element. If the element or elements are torn it may be possible to repair it with rubber cement or rubber paste just coat the tear with the rubber cement to hole the torn edges together and allow it to dry for two days before testing the sound. If the speaker elements are not ripped then the problem may be a bad capacitor either in the audio section (power supply) or in the filter block (usually attached to the speakers to separate bass and treble signal to the speakers.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

I have a very high pitched sound and when I move the tv it will stop for a second or two and then start again. The sound sometimes stops all together. But very high pitch sound.
