Question about RCA HD50LPW42 50" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

ATC 336 Thanks for the solution. You mentioned it being the capacitors. I did smell something that resembled burnt electronic components. Well, I am a software geek and not a hardware geek. Could you recommend a guide on how to replace them or where I should go to get it done and maybe be a gestimate on how much it may cost. Would you also recomend on just getting a new TV because these RCA's just seem to be craping out a lot. I also already had the light engine, sound board and light bulb replaced on this particular set. Again, thanks for the addvise.

Sadly, most repair shops are getting away from component level repair and want to do module replacement which would be between 4 and 6 hundred. I can give you a link to a site that I am part owner of as well as a support tech. We sell service manuals and provide free tech support as well as sell replacement parts.. If you can solder I would recomend that route as putting alot of money into a new module. If you would like to try to repair it with free tech support just look on the rear of your set for the Chassis number and go to the following link,

let me know if I can help you further.

I have a pioneer vsx-9900s- was running it hard for New Year's and at the end of the night it started to smell and then the sound stopped dead. The front panel and all controls work, but no second click-...


If the thing smells you shouldn't need any test equipment apart from your eyes and nose. That should lead you to something burnt up! Unlikely you will encounter any high voltage parts.

SDM M51 major problem


Based on your post/description, the "fizzling noise and a smell of ozone" are indicators of electronic component(s) that burned. Should you be comfortable and have a fair knowledge of component level repair, soldering and the use of a VOM then it is possible to repair it yourself. The inside would basically be divided into 3 electronic group; 1. power supply; 2. video; and 3. illumination. This should be fairly straight forward since the "fizzling noise and a smell of ozone" indicators would also be visually apparent. Fizzling would normally be capacitors leaking their oil at high temp/high pressure. this would probably be in the power supply section (but the other 2 groups have their own capacitors also). Smell of ozone would usually come from high voltage arcing which is only present in the inverter circuitry of the illumination. It is the group responsible for supplying the high voltage high frequency supply of the small fluorescent tube (CCF) that provides the backlight of the display panel. As earlier mentioned, it has also its own capacitors. If for some reason you do not feel comfortable opening and working the electronics inside, you might be better off seeking the services of a qualified professional. Good luck and kind regards. Hope this gives you and idea and how to go about it.
