Question about RCA D52W19 52" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Capacitor The TV was plugged in, the wife said she heard a sizzling coming from it, she unplugged it. When I plugged it up, same noise. The power would come on, but it would sizzle, and smell like burnt wire. I opened the back up, if your facing the TV from the back, on the left hand side, there is a circuit board. There is a little grey capacitor on that board that has burned up, and I?m pretty sure it?s messed that whole board up. What I need is a whole new board... anyone know how I go about getting a whole new board? What is the part number on that board? Like I said, if you?re standing behind the TV, and you open the lower access panel, it?s the board on the left hand side. Any assistance would be much appreciated. Thank you.Jason

Re: Capacitor

U have to get the yx number of the back.. model d52w10 and then it ussally has something like yx1 next to it. then the board you need is a deflection board. not easy to replace.. depending on the model they can be as much as 350 or as little as 50.

Tv made sizzle pop sound and went out

All depending on the models, but i have seen and work on may units with this problem, there are a few large capacitors on the power supply that are sometimes doubly secured with glue, that in turn becomes conductive and causes faults like this. check all the large capacitors for any low or nil readings and with a fine point probe, carefully remove the glue on the and around the caos, and elsewhere if you see any. Good Luck.

A capacitor has burned out. It may be on the motherboard or power supply.

Projection tv not working

I guess loud sizzling was from High Voltage Splitter in your TV. HV seems cracked and leaking high voltage.

You can observe and confirm it by removing back cover and power up TV from distance and check at rear of TV. Please take care and there should be little dark to observe arc from HV splitter.

If this is the case, HV splitter available in Part Store.

Rca model D52W20BYX1 comes on for a moment then goes off rite away

rca model d52w20byx1 itc222. sounds like shutdown mode. Does the led flash. unplug the set leave set unplug for 30 min. this reset procesor. now i tell you this in the shop its never that simple but it first step. IF you have a flashing led when you push power button. it tells you alot. it tells you main fuse is good the processor is getting power and it detects something wrong. leading causes are shorted horzontal output transistor. shorted cp150 capacitor. technicians have a computer that read error codes much like that of a car. let me know if i can help troubleshoot it down.

I heard a pop noise then picture went out. when i power on tv i get a red flashing light instead of greenlight in left corner of tv. I have a 2002 pioneer 50 inch plasma

The 'POP' noise was likely a capacitor saying farewell.

If you are able, AND confident with electrics - take the TV apart (UNPLUG)

These TVs are very heavily populated with Surface Mount components - I suspect that you will likely find - what looks like a small can (half a centimetre in diameter, with 'candyfloss' coming out of it..)
YES - You could get a replacement from somewhere like Maplin / Radioshack......
Replacement will work - really need to establish WHY it went Pop, and get to the root cause (Excess power feed / drain)
Realistically - without sounding too negative . . other components would have also been affected but not necessarily killed.

Good Luck.

Volume up then pic gone

Sounds like you have a jammed / shorted out button on the control panel... Try un-plugging the tv, and then unplug the "button panel" on the front of the tv...see if you can turn the tv on with the remote. Sometimes if one of the buttons gets shorted, it will "lock" the processor from doing ANYTHING else, as it thinks you are holding down the defective button. If this works, simply have the defective switch or control panel replaced, or just leave it unplugged and use the remote only! Hope this helps!

Green Timer lights blinks for about 10 sec. Then Lamp light, then nothing

Definitely sounds like a power supply problem. Check with your local TV repair/service center about getting it repaired or replaced.
