My RCA hdtv D52W19 smells and has a crackling noise when i turn it on

Check for bad connections at a capacitor near the flyback & flyback pins - at the power supply board. Also possible - 1 or 2 bad capacitors, they can be found by the blown out top. In our shop this is a $240 repair. It is possible the red picture tube has broken and is arcing.

RCA D52W19 "crackles" and smells like its burning

Hello pmzone_guard, This problem is quite common in this TV it's due to a capacitor in the power supply being overloaded. The chassis model is a ITC222. The capacitor is located on the deflection board which is part of the power supply and should not be touch by someone that does not have TV Repair Experience, due to the fact that this area of the TV is the most dangerous. I would suggest having a qualified TV repair technician do the repair on this TV. If the problem is just that one capacitor the part will cost about $2.50 at the most, so the charge will be the cost of the part plus the labor involved. I hope this helps, Thank you, Shuttle83

My tv has a dinosaur in it.

Its a raptor most likely. But seriously, when these RCA TVs go into shutdown or fail to power up, they will try 3 times to re-establish operation. Your problem can be caused by a number of circuits. The power supply itself may be bad or the high voltage/ deflection circuit. You can visually inspect the circuit board. Some failures in these TVs will cause obviously damaged components like burned resistors and the like. The problem here is that most anything that will fail will cost some serious money. Expect to spend $300-500 to repair it or consider replacing it.

Won't power on

my d52w19 chassis itc222 as posted most of the time wont turn on and the green light flashes three times every time it makes a small noise. sometimes it does turn on and you hear a little pop and the tv fires up.  latley there is a really high pitch noise that will slightly change pitch if you move the tv or put slight pressure on the top or botttom rear part of the chassis. thanks for the help as I have seen that this has been posted before without mention of the high pitch noise.
