Question about RCA D52W19 52" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

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 noise coming from it when turning the power on, like a spark noise, but still worked, flicked a few times, but nothing happened. I did buy a surge protector to prevent anything from happening to the t.v. But recently it started again my t.v flickered on and off and finally stopped working I unplugged it, left it for a day, then plugged it back in, and it came on, stayed on for a few minutes then turned off on its own. I do not smell anything burning as I did 3 months ago, so that would be a good sign. I am wondering if it would be the flyback again?. I did have the repair man come in and take a look at it, but he said not the flyback problem something about the guns not firing and leaking in the t.v, unsure what he means?, can someone explain this to me. Well I hope someone can help me, I have wasted money on this t.v and wondering if I should waste anymore trying to fix it.

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.
