Question about RCA D61W20 61" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

I also have the same problem, (Model # D61W20B - RCA Rear Projection TV) At first it would come on sometimes, then eventually you would have to sit for about an hour to get it to come on by continuing to push the power button, the light would blink a few times and power off. Then one day it just wouldn't come back on at all. I thought it was the bulb becuase we have another TV (65" Mitisubishi and it was just the bulb) after reading the comments that were posted I am not sure if it is the bulb or the deflection board. I am not sure if I should get a new bulb and waste the money or get a deflection board... i don't even know the part numbers for either item. What should I do? How do I fix it? HELP!! I just want it fixed... :-)

Best bet is to replace bulb, many online retailers have bulbs that you can install just do a search for your set. If it doesnt work call a local repair shop to check out the board. Its the cheapest way to go.

I suspect that you may have cracked solder connections on the deflection PC board. This is the module that has a red wire coming from the top of a transformer and leads to the front of the tv. I would start with a cleaning of the components, a soft paintbrush and vacuum work well for this. Remove the power deflection module carefully, turn it over and look for cracked solder connections on this PC board. especially near the high voltage transformer. Use a soldering pencil type iron and small diameter solder to correct the issue.

What you most likely have is a convergence problem. The convergence circuitry is used to align your colors. What you describe sounds like that circuit has failed. Here’s a link to a decent video that will give you an idea of what is needed to fix it:

TV does not turn on model RCA D61W20B

first check all fuses they are small, square ,RED and can be confused with the square small caps. the sizzling is prob. the flyback transformer (what the h.v. wires from each tube plugs into) if you are only getting green then tv shuts down or is dead now. i would replace any bad fuses and replace the flyback transformer. also make sure you do a very good visual inspection of all the boards.
