RCA P52754AT 52 in. No Picture No Sound

Our Projection TV which was left on all night turned itself off and had a smell of burnt wire. When I went to turn it on the green power light would blink for about 3 seconds then stop. No picture or sound. I need to know what the cause could be and is it worth it to repair.

Burnt smell

Beside horizontal transistor a ceramic capacitor .087 2500v (???) burn in the buttom chassis (solder). or fly back start to burn or blown. But I think is a ceramic capacitor.

Swirling colors unwatchable screen RCA rear projection 52"

I will assume it does this no matter what the input is, It sounds like the board that controls the projection lamps is causing them to misfire? Or light up out of order in rapid succesion? you will probably need to have the TV serviced, or at least an estimate, so you canfigure out exactly what part has gone bad,( hard to tell sometimes when were not there), but be carefull if you decide to service it yourself.

A 1995 60 inch rca good picture and sound. Then it started a cracking noise and a hissing sound, then the picture went blurry. then it was nice picture and sound, then it died. took the back off and turned out the lights. Plugged the tv in and out from the wall socket and there was a sparking noise and a small arc when i plugged it in and out a few times ,at the part that the power plug plugs into.The white part that is beside the white power plug part has thick red wire coming out of it and goes into another plug that has more red wires in it. but the big white part beside the power plug part looks burnt and has black powder on it. that part is probably the problem but maybe not, what it the name of that part and how much would it cost and is it plugged in or soldered.

Will not turn on

Does the set make any sounds. DOes the front green led light or flash when you try to turn it on.. if not then it could be as simple as a fuse, if it does flash then it can be many problems

yes it could ba the cable itself even, but i suspect more the tuner circuit or tuner itself may have bad solder connections. Here is another test for you to try, plug another dvd or vcr, or xbox etc. into the back, using one odf the inputs. See if this works like the built in dvd. if so it will be more likely bad connections in the tuner or surrounding circuit. good luck.
