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??

Re: Red screen and only red bulb powers on.

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

TV picture goes out after 10 minutes of viewing with popping sound

It can be a couple things. Something bad on the power board. Or the vertical output circuit. How long ago did you purchase the television. Your best course of action is to have it serviced.
If you need any information or other assistance let me know.

Sony LCD television will not power on.

I get 5 blinking red lights for about a minute or so before it powers back down. The Sony TV has a specific light that i presume is supposed to light up when the bulb is out. I'm unsure if this is what it is.
no picture, no sound. tries to boot with green light blinking a few times. then goes to red blinking light, six in all, then waits a few moments, then another 6 blinking red light.
Bulb was already replaced several months ago but we do have the TV on for long periods of time.
