Take the cover off and look for something that is burnt and take a pic of it and attach it here.

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.

Tv all the sudden wont turn on and wires smell like they are burn

What worked last night and last week does not play any role on what works now. The issue here is power supply that you smelling, and that crackling sound backs it up. Now you have choices but there not all in your favor and you got to expect that when it comes to repair as its going to put a dent in the wallet.

Powerboard/deflection unit $250 plus labor..

Plus whatever got burned inside during this whole ordeal. Concider this: Cost of new verses Repair of old. Also a new tv will give you its life plus 3 years warranty to boot, this tv will give you 90 days after its fixed on the part only, after witch other things can go wroung.

I agree with repair only if your willing to pay for it. There are Quality repair places like click and check if they can come to you if not you need to check you local listings for a tech locally.

diagnosis: power/deflection unit
Prognosis: 90 days parts/? Labor

please be considerate whren leaving positive ratings and feedback today.

Hello, 3 months ago, I had my flyback on my 2006 RCA D52W20 HDTV rear projection replaced due to my t.v turning off and not coming back on. All was fine when after it was replaced, but still had a load...

The crt's on these sets have a nasty habit of leaking down onto the circuit boards and ruining them. If this has happened then it would cost more than it's worth to fix.

RCA 50" - Convergence problem and now "Popping" + no picture

The high pitch popping that you are hearing is arcing in the high voltage circuit. I would not suggest a repair on a set that is this old. Convergence repair plus a high voltage problem could run around $500-$600. But it is your call on the repair, I can only advise.

I hope this helps you.
Thanks for using FixYa

RCA D52W19 "crackles" and smells like its burning

Hello pmzone_guard, This problem is quite common in this TV it's due to a capacitor in the power supply being overloaded. The chassis model is a ITC222. The capacitor is located on the deflection board which is part of the power supply and should not be touch by someone that does not have TV Repair Experience, due to the fact that this area of the TV is the most dangerous. I would suggest having a qualified TV repair technician do the repair on this TV. If the problem is just that one capacitor the part will cost about $2.50 at the most, so the charge will be the cost of the part plus the labor involved. I hope this helps, Thank you, Shuttle83

TV wont turn on, makes buzzing noise and shuts off

I have two RCA HD52W59 TV's. I have had one for 3 years and one 4 years. The one I have had for 4 years is giving me the problem. Last week the tv turned off while watching it. It wouldnt come right back on. 10 minutes later we tried and it worked fine. the other night the kids were watching and it turned off and smelled like something burning. I tried turning it right back on and got no power at all. I tried to turn it on two days later and it made a buzzing noise and the green light went out. Never did get a picture, no powering up on the screen. Any ideas? Don't want to spend alot of money. Really loved the TV hope it isnt junk now. Better yet I hope the same thing doesnt happen to the other one I have.

My RCA 52 inch was doing the same thing.  TV guy had me use a regular hair blower blowing very hot on the power supply board ( bottom left in back). After a few minutes the tv would come on.  He replaced 2 capacitors, charged me $100.00, plus the $95.00 service call, and is working fine now.  This was a month ago.  So far so good.  He only took the board to the shop, not the entire tv.  Hope this helps.
