The problem is related to the CRT boards or the CRT itself. More often than not an oscilloscope is required to trouble shoot this problem. Hence this cannot be fixed by the end user. You can use our repair directory to find a tech in your area to help you fix this.

    You could have merely requested what you wanted to know and I would have been happy to help. But now I have changed my mind. You don't deserve it.

    Is there an easy and cheap fix for this?

    This is not an expensive fix at all. The CRT board costs about 25$ if used and slightly more if new. You can get the tube off ebay or something for as low as 100$.

    What all do I need to get? Can I put them in?

  • eagle338

    The first objective would be to determine whether both boards(red and green) are faulty. More often than not this will need an oscilloscope. Replacement is also pretty risky if you do not have prior experience in handling HV electronics. The CRT acts like giant capacitor and holds about 20000volts for several days after its turned off and unplugged. The risk of injury is too great and not recommended if you are not sure of what you are doing. As my guru at the institute used to say "Your life and limb is worth much more than this!

  • martysguns Jul 16, 2010

    I have a cousin that works for xerox as a repairman I could get him to put them in. I found them at tv repair world for $35 each I will just get both most likely both need changed.

    Partstore.com or any of its affiliates(such as sears parts) should be good place to start. Even encompass parts and ebay would be good places to look for the part but you are gonna need the part number for that.

    Oh yeah! Forgot about that. Sorry I have never tried buying parts from there before

Set is 7 years old - it turns off intermintently


Ours used to do that - and then we moved it to another state with us. Since the move it doesn't shut itself off anymore. I suspect that the problem was dirt and dust inside which got knocked loose in the move and the shutdown was due to thermal limits being exceeded. You may want to try vacuuming or blowing out the dust inside if you feel comfortable opening up the unit.

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.

D61W20 RCA, Red Screen and then shuts down


sounds like the Red CRT (tube) has shorted. You can test by removing the RED crt circuit from the end of the RED tube and making sure it isnt touching anything try powering up the set. If it comes on and doesnt shut down the red tube is the problem and will need to be replaced . expensive part to replace the Red XRT will be over 300 and at least 2-3 hundred to have it installed unless you know someone who can replace it for you.
