Question about RCA D52W19 52" Rear Projection Television

3 Answers

Won't turn on, popping noise

Turn the set on, light comes on it pops (almost sounds like a sizzling pop), light goes off and comes back on, does the same thing. It will do this three times then it just shuts off.
Turn it back on, it does it 3 times again and shuts off.
There is never a picture during any of this

    OK, so here's the deal. My rca d52w19 is acting up. Turn the tv on, the green power light turns on for maybe 3 second and then the sizzling kicks in. The tv tries to kick on another 2 or maybe 3 more times with the same sizzling sound yet it just won't stay on. I've turned it on with the back panel removed (staying away from anything back there and only looking with a flashlight) and the sound seems to be coming from the left side somewhere but I can't pinpoint it. I've changed the flyback and a small capacitor located on the left hand side board (CL031) that was burnt out. Still nothing. I've taken the entire tv apart front and back, checked all boards for burnt capacitors or solder issues, which i don't see, but I still hear this sizzling when I try to turn it on. Now the board does have a burn mark from this CL031 capacitor so I'm wondering if the board is shot? On a side note, I waited a full week (while I was waiting for the part to come in as well) with the tv unplugged to allow the tv to discharge before I touched any power sources. My understanding is the flyback can pack a punch if charged and the charge can hold for a good 4 days plus so be careful if this is an option your going to try. Anyway, my tv still won't turn on and we're in the process of looking for new tv's but i'd love to try to fix this one rather than spend another grand plus on another tv so if anyone has any suggestions I'm open for them. chassis # is ITC222. Thanks a bunch!

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.

Tv made sizzle pop sound and went out

All depending on the models, but i have seen and work on may units with this problem, there are a few large capacitors on the power supply that are sometimes doubly secured with glue, that in turn becomes conductive and causes faults like this. check all the large capacitors for any low or nil readings and with a fine point probe, carefully remove the glue on the and around the caos, and elsewhere if you see any. Good Luck.

Projection tv not working

I guess loud sizzling was from High Voltage Splitter in your TV. HV seems cracked and leaking high voltage.

You can observe and confirm it by removing back cover and power up TV from distance and check at rear of TV. Please take care and there should be little dark to observe arc from HV splitter.

If this is the case, HV splitter available in Part Store.

Popping sound and picture goes out

Sounds like the flyback or the picture tube. Either items can cause this. If the pop comes from the rear right side its the flyback. If the sound comes from the lower front behind the speaker grille its the tube. Let me know what you discover as I have access to any of the parts you would need.

#1 When I turn on the TV the power button comes on then blinks 6 times then goes off for a few seconds then repeats the cycle. I have sound over my surround system during this time but no picture.
#2 My sound would crackle and pop every once and a while until now it does nothing. I have to watch it with the surround sound on.
