If you're NOT still under warrantee you should at least open the TV and look for a blown fuse near where the power cable enters the set. A lot of times you can buy replacement fuses at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace. Check the fuse. If it is blown, it will be obvious and make sure that the set is unplugged before replacing it. If it blows again, or if it is not blown, your problem is probably in the 'X' volt regulator and you will need professional help with the repairs. You can also check the board where the components are mounted and resoled any that look bad. Brief power outages may cause the TV to turn off on its own. If you are using a surge protector, try connecting the set directly to the wall outlet. In your case it could caused by a blown fuse, a leaky diodes or a bad solder joint at the horizontal drive transformer. All can be replaced at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace If this does not correct the problem, you may need to have your TV serviced. good luck!

Hello bassin365,
The loud pop you heard was a filter capacitor. The problem now is the power supply is shot, or should I say the capacitor that is connected to that voltage output is blown. You will have to replace it with a new one. I would suggest just for your curiosity, unplug the TV, take the lower panel off (you will need a star head driver to do this) and look at the power supply board (the board on you left side) look towards the middle of the board and you will see a heat sink in the middle of that heat sink you should see a capacitor (or the remains of one). its value is 2200uf 16V (I believe that this is the one that has gone bad), you should also look for others that may have blown also. I would also suggest that you have a qualified TV repair person come to your place and work on this for you, due to the nature of this section of your TV.
If you choose to do this yourself you will find this useful.  Get a schematic to find the values the Chassis number I believe is ITC222. Here is a link to the schematic:

I hope this helps,
Thank you,

The first and most likely cause is that your lamp has blown. Simply remove it and inspect when they have blown its really easy to tell. Remove lamp door with a philips screw driver. The door is located I believe on the back of the set towards the right side. Once the lamp door is off there will be 1 maybe 2 screws holding the lamp assembly itself in place. Remove those then the housing should slide right out. The lamp number is 915B403001 for that model.. Good Luck!!!

How do I adjust the vertical hole on an RCA HDTV/ MONITOR Model number D52W20 Serial number D493C304Q Manufactured date Dec 2003.... UL/FDA MODEL D52W20B


The model number does not match the set in the video, this is a newer LCD or Plasma set-almost no set made in the last 20 years has a vertical hold, besides I see 3 images or its 3d and camera saw that.
12_16_2012_3_44_02_am.jpgThis is what the model made in 2003 looks like.


The other set likely has a bad main board that controls everything, without the correct model I cannot even research it.

It seems lamp/ bulb popped again, check lamp inside tv.
If tv does not show red blinking light then it would be lamp that knocked off, replace lamp in tv to fix its problem, please buy Sony original lamp for good picture in tv.

MAGNAVOX TV BURNING SMELL TV WENT POP AND WENT OFF


Well that pop had something to do with the power components inside the TV frying. I would have to say there is nothing you can do to repair it as its dangerous to work on such things.
I wouln't waste my time bringing it to a repair shop they will probably tell you to just buy a new one.

Moved ge hdtv mod#D52GW12 in rainy weather


Sounds like it could be a problem with high voltage stages. Definitely a job for a TV technician as it is dangerous try to repair it yourself.

Good Day;
On that model look for a small yellow cap, half the size of coin, dime. LOOK very closely and you will see a small burnt spot on the cap. The TV uses about 4 of them, they are 120/110 @ 2 kv. There are located in the high voltage circuit.
This the most common, it could be flyback or HV devider.
Good Luck and Day, big irish.
LET ME know.
