Question about RCA HD52W56 52" Rear Projection HDTV

2 Answers

Picture gone I have an RCA 52" Scenium projector T.V. that made a strange high pitched noise and then the screen went black. No weak signal message. I unplugged it for a while then plugged it back in and there was a clicking sound like a breaker or relay was trying to reset, but couldn't and finally the T.V. shut off and the power light went off. This happened once when it was under warranty and the technician had to replace something. Similar events have happened several time throughout the next few years, but were correctable by unplugging the power cord, waiting several minutes then plugging it back in, but not this time.

Re: Picture gone

Yes, if I plug it in the green light comes on and the clicking sound goes for several minutes trying to reset I guess then thes\ set shuts off and the green light goes out. If I turn the power on again it will keep repeating this cycle.

High pitched whine

Ok maybe this may help .... there is a coil LL08 I believe... somtimes it creates a high pitch whine like you describe.. its stands up on the deflection basicaly a large coil of copper can take silcon and put on the effect damping the ocillations...hope that might help

RCA Scenium HD52W140

I cannot think of anything easy that would cause the symtoms you are describing. Your power supply is working and the deflection bd is good because you have HV. The problem is signal related and all of this circuitry is on the SSB or small signal bd. The difficult thing is when replacing this bd. you must have RCA's chipper check to download all of the ssb eeprom settings so they can be uploaded to the new ssb. I'm affraid you will need a qualifier RCA service tech for this problem.
