Question about RCA D52W20 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Won't turn on

A few weeks ago my tv started taking a few minutes to turn on. The sound would come on for a few seconds and then turn off for about 30. It would do this for a few minutes before the picture would finally turn on. Now, when I turn the tv on, the light power light turns on for maybe 10 seconds and then shuts off. The picture or sound never comes on. I have only had this tv for about 9 months. Any ideas?

Those tvs will try 3 times before completely shutting down. you can try and take the back off and check CP150 it is a large capactior located near the middle of the board on the left hand side(looking from back) if it looks and feels like the top is vented or puffed out then that could be the problem. if not i suggest having a qualified service tech take a look because there are too many things that could be the root cause.

Audio shuts off after 2 minutes, no sound


It's probably Thermal Runaway' a term used when a electronic component over heats and quits working. Go to Radio Shack and buy a can of freeze spray, Take it down to where you can get to the chassis and when it goes out starting spraying components and when you get the right one the sound will pop back on/ This spray is not flammable and does not conduct electricty. That component will have to be replaced,

We have a Samsung 61 inch DLP tv. That started buzzing a few weeks ago when it was turned on. At first it only lasted a few seconds. Kinda sounds like a bad barring, Then this last week it began to last...


Highly likely that the sound was coming from the bearing in the color wheel assembly. When the bearing fails, the color wheel cannot spin at the correct speed, and because the speed is measured by the control board, the TV will shut down.

If you can handle a screwdriver - entire color wheel assembly can be replaced for about $100 and 30 minutes of your time.

Delay to see the picture


Your power supply is going south, I have an old sony with the same problem. The voltage level drops and does not have enough 'kick' to start. It will work better when it is warm. The module will need to be replaced.
