HD52W59 CRT Arcing

I have HD52W59 that stop working while we were watching it. When we turned it back on I saw an arc coming from the front of the TV. I removed the front cover and cleaned a lot of dust from the circuit boards. I plugged the TV back in and found the arcing coming from the CRT on the right side facing the TV. My guess is that this CRT is out. If so does anyone know the pat number? And where is a good place to fide one? If this is not the problem then what do you think it is? Thanks for your help.

Blue Crt arching... on the board or on crt? most likely if it is arching you are right in suspecting the tube. These tube are around 240 dollars per tube and then i would sugest replaceing crt board. I work on alot of these at the shop. bottom line if there not under warenty then really not worth fixing. these set cost about 800 new it would cost around 500 to fix. crt replacement of these set is a very involved process. I think almost ever screw in the set has to come out and then after you get it all back together. theres the alignement issues.. im not saying dont do it just if you like a challenge go for it.

Hd52w59 wont turn on


If you can get at it this set has a high voltage splitter up front (remove entire front grill beneath the screen and the inspection plate behind that) that also fails---it is usually tan in color and has a red HV lead coming from flyback to it---three wires there go to the picture tubes--just remove the one or two screws that secure it and look at the bottom for any burn marks or signs it has been arcing.

It pops for awhile, then stops for about a week then it will go out completely. Place the tv in a corner for about a week turned off and then turn it back on, it will work again for awhile.


This could be caused by the high voltage transformer arcing or one of the anode leads arcing at the CRT cap. If you can monitor the back of the set open while in a dark room setting may show where the arcing is occuring
I hope this helps,

First of all you need to find out which CRT leaked and replace it before any other repairs are done. The clear liquid is conductive and has done damage to the CRT board or boards.

The loud "pop" sounds like high voltage arcing coming from one of the CRT's.....you may have to pull each CRT out and put silicon sealant on the anode connectors to prevent the arcing.(one of the CRT's may be arcing internally also and the only cure is to replace that CRT) If you let the arcing continue,it will short out the horizontal output transistor sooner or later.......

Check the CRT socket of the tube that is arching. Could be a solder connection or shorted CRT. If you need further assistance let me know.
