Most times when you hear this kind of sound on a TV it is because the flyback transformer is bad (from what I can remember anyway!). Its been a while since I repaired TV's, so hopefully someone can verify my info. The flyback transformer steps up the voltage very high which powers the color tubes. If that is bad, you will get the thunk sound. Also, if memory serves me well, there is a high power output chip that could be bad as well. Please, anyone who knows TV's, please verify for me. It has been years for me!

Multiple issue,power light flashes


Sounds like first loose connection on circuit board. I would first look around the relay this is what clicks. Then also the low voltage transformers. These problems are always concerns when set is moved or bumped hard. Try this first. Or it could be a heated issue.

My RCA52W59 wont turn on. I plug it in and the


Common faults with this model are flyback trans former and power supply problems (capacitors)
This set is in shut down or protection mode and will attempt to restart 3 times

Read below and decide if you want to tackle the problem yourself if so I’ll help along the way with what info I have. If not contact the nearest repair shop armed with the info below.

A dead set (no picture no sound) can indicate any number of problems – Usually the set is in shutdown or protection mode – this means that the internal circuits have detected a problem with a supply voltage missing, drawing too much current, going over voltage or a short condition.
The first thing to do is power off the set unplug it for 5min. than replug and try again. This in effect resets the main micro and will sometime unlatch a fault and resume working. There are certain common problems based on the make model – for instance convergence output IC’s(CRT projection TV’s) can cause a dead set symptom in many models. Vertical output IC failure can also cause the same symptom (CRT standard and Projection).
The only way to determine the real cause is :
By an educated guess based on experience or by directly troubleshooting the set – checking fuses, measuring voltages and checking for shorts. Many of the intermittent problems such as, int.(Intermittent) no sound or picture, int. picture shrunken or misshaped. These problems are generally due to cold (bad) solder joints (all TV’s and electronics) that break down under slight temperature changes or vibration and are usually verified by physically tapping the suspected area on the circuit board, or by quickly heating or cooling a suspected component or area ( cold spray and hot air gun). The other main culprit is leaky or dried out capacitors or capacitors that change value depending on temperature. These can sometimes be seen as bulged or leaky and have an acrid odour.

TV turns itself off after a few seconds, no picture at all


I had a similar problem with my Phillips 42 in. LCD HD TV.

Here's the problem. The Power Supply Board. I opened my TV up(warranty was up of course) and found several bad capacitors. Phillips and several other companies were sold capacitors that although were highly rated failed within 5 years because of a lack of preservatives. All sorts of electronic equipment is now being effected due to these defective capacitors.
Solutions?
1. Take it in and have it fixed
2. Open it up, check the board for faulty capacitors(bulged or leaking) Buy a new Power supply board and install it.
3. Remove PSB, remove faulty capacitors and replace with compatible new ones.

Hope this helps

Picture turns on and off


Just found this trying to figure out what was wrong with my same model tv. Since mine was under warantee, I had the repairman troubleshoot it. He changed the lamp and the tv started working normally again.

I didn't understand how the lamp could be bad if it lit up while the tv was on. He said the tube was probably using too much voltage or too little voltage to run, so the tv would turn itself off and on in an attempt to receive the correct voltage from the lamp.

I realize this is 9 months late, but maybe it can help someone else who has this problem. I can't believe there are only 3 rca dlp's out there with this problem.

Tv wont power up makes a noise but no picture


Your power transformer is likely shot. It'll cost at least $200 to have it replaced. Someone can come to your house to diagnose it. Usually costs around $65.
