Question about RCA D52W20 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Red screen and only red bulb powers on.

When I turn on my tv, all I see is red. I hear the sound from the tv and I hear a poping and cracking sound. It then turns off by itself. What needs to be replaced and how. No liquid on anything. The red bulb is the only one that comes on and the red board at the bottom of the tv sparks in the rear left corner under the circut board. (Looking from the front.) Any ideas what it might be??

The red tube and the red crt board sound like the problem. these would be the first thing that needs to replace 250 for tube +50 for crt board. + labor about 300 to 500 to repair

Set was on and made a loud pop noise and the picture went off. the red light was flashing and no picture. then it made a strange buzzing type of sound a few times. turned off for a couple mins and then...


It sounds like your screen inverter has just gone >bang< unfortunately.
Most screens inside use 2 main circuit boards, and you are most likely going to have to change one of them.
It's possible also for it to have been just the backlight bulb making the loud pop noise too. The inverter may have given out too much power and blown the bulb (a lot like you hear when a house bulb goes bang).

If you can't actually hear any TV sounds (normal sounds like music, voices etc. when they should be there), then it means the problem is more serious, and would need a specialist repair place to check out the electrical circuit inside.

TV will not power on.


I guess your TV is DLP.
Please notice the follow symthoms:
When you on TV, did you hear some strange noise from the back of the TV. If yes, the color wheel needs replacing.
If no, check the lamp. Take a look to bottom of lamp, you will see white pot or sometime a pop up there due to lamp cycle is going to end. When changing lamp, check the ballast and power sup, too. If you see caps are poping up. Pull out those board and replace the poped caps.
