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

1 Answer

RCA D52W20 52 inch TV

I have an RCA D52W20. I acquired it for free from a local freecycle because it was dead and they gave up on repair. I called around to get an estimate of $300 to fix it. After a lot of research regarding the issue, I bought a flyback from for this exact model for $60 including shipping. With good soldering skills and a half hour later, this beauty came to life! I did take precautions through out the whole project since I didn't have a high voltage discharging wand. But since this thing hasn't worked for years, the likely hood of getting shocked was less likely. I feel glad that I saved yet another tv with environmentally harmful chemicals from the landfill. May others out there be inspired to research and repair electronics to keep them out of the landfill.

RCA T.V. model #32V420T, manufacture date July 2005. It quit, does nothing, no pop humm lights nothing. Does it have a reset button or is it dead? Thank you for your time.

be sure to check the plug and wall socket first if there is no problem there , then a fuse in the tv went or there is a component problem and it will need to be tested to determine the cause of the shut down , then you will need to call your local repair shop to see if they can fix it at your home or they will take the main board in for the repair
if you need any more assistance don't hesitate to ask

Rca d52130 herd pop tv went dead

dear friend your tv has a defective fly-back transformer 99 times out of 100 that is your problem.
get the model number and call your local electronics parts distribuitor to see if they have it, if not call tritronics 1800-638-3328 they probably have it and is not too expensive.less than $ when you get here is the million dollar question can you do it yourself? if you can't call the repairman and by having the fly-back that will decrese the cost of the repair, is just the labor.

good luck

I have an RCA model r52wh74 projection tv. I was told it has a problem with the tuner. The picture comes in on an ngle the same as these slash marks // but is only about 1 inch high by 8 inches long and...

I have not had the TV repaired. since the local repair shop gave me a quote of almost $700.00 to repair. I only paid a little more than that for the TV new. I will just purchase a new TV.
I did not follow through with my request to you because I found several web sites that suggested not to repair because it is just not worth it.
