Question about RCA D52W19 52" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

D52W19 No pix, sound good - now green light blinks, no come on

Before: When turn on TV, get sound but screen is pink with light colored horizontal lines. Pulled front cover off between speakers to see. Turn on and get same results plus hear/see arcing near red HV wire at bottom and from circuit board on center projection tube. All three tubes (red grn,blu) light, then arcing, then screen collapses to vertical red and blue lines then TV turns off.

I noticed a clear orderless liquid on bottom in center, and HV wire in it. Liquid is on several wires and bottom of center tube board. Traced liquid appears to have come from center tube, I think (are these liquid filled?). Cleaned off all wires and center tube board with paper towel. Turn on TV but still same results (pink screen, arcing, screen collapse, off).

Noticed solder splash had fallen onto bottom. Took board off center tube, to inspect bottom of board. Cleaned thouroughly with paper towel, disconnected/wiped front 3-wire connector (coated with liquid) and rear center ribbon connector (could not remove left or right ribbon, fear damaging board), trimmed component leads. Replaced board and cleaned all wires and surfaces of this liquid.

After: Now when turn on, green power light comes on and hear click (no screen or sound) then light goes off, repeats 2 more times, then nothing.

Unplugged overnight to reset. Turn on next morning with same result (green light on with click, green light off, for 3 times, then nothing).

Why don't the tubes light like before? I was very carefull not to damage anything. What do I do? What do I replace?

First of all you need to find out which CRT leaked and replace it before any other repairs are done. The clear liquid is conductive and has done damage to the CRT board or boards.

I have pink streaks in the screen, can't see them when pix is in color, only light or no pix

Hi,Sony is well known for having issue with their light engine.Basically what creates the image and colors on the tv is 3 LCD chips which are blue,green and red.This chips blend together to create the colors and image.When they start to go bad you will get that color discoloration.You will need to replace the light engine. You can find it here or God bless you!

Sounds like the color wheel stopped and re-started. It may continue to function for a while, but could fail at any time.

I've also seen on rare occasion, a defect in a lamp produce uneven color rendition, but its far more likely that the culprit is the color wheel.

Double images

You could have some type of convergance (three colors, three guns) problem. Also a misaligned horizontal or vertical oscillator.Ceck to see if any of tiny magnets around the bell of picture tube or next to coils in and around bell of pix tube are missing.

Tv wil not turn on

The horizontal output transistor is most likely shorted, it's a 2sc5588 Rca Part # 259899 and there are a couple of subs available for that too.
The slight squealing you hear is the feedback voltage on the hot transformer as the B+ tries to increase and the s/d circuit cuts it off. Not an expensive repair...
Good Luck!
