Tv tries to turn on but turns back off with clicking noise RCA big screen tv 52 inch

The clicking noise is caused by the relay. This is a fail safe to prevent possible fire in the unit. It is heat sensitive and detects some overheating component or short circuit. You may find damage on one of the Sustain or power boards is causing this to occur. It is NOT a DIY unless you can rtead a circuit diagram and understand electronics. It is not a case of being a board swap jockey like working on a PC. Any change of boards or components requires aq retuning using a cross pattern generator ( sometimes buoilt in to the TV in the service access area) Many on here try and do it on the cheap and end up spending much more than the service call in an attempt to save a few $. Very few succeed and if they do the fix is short lived..
Conservative estimate for fiz is $3-400. Unless its a warranty claim.

Please rate my help++++ Thanks for using FIXYA

My tv is making a loud roaring noise in the back

I had the same problem, it was the color wheel (part # 270916). The bearings go and it starts making noise. It was fairly easy to replace.

That is either the flyback auto transformer or the relay getting energized. I reckon it is some issue with these, or a failing power board. Best get a technician to look at it, as some spot inspection and testing will be required to isolate the faulty components.

RCA D52W20 The T.V. will not turn on. The TV will click three times and then the power will turn off. When the back panel is off you can hear the clicking noise coming from a small white box with copper...

Check on the bottom of that coil with the copper wires. the solder may be de graded thats a common issue with that chassis if that doesnt help you will most likely need the flyback as thats the second most common part that will cause the symptom youre describing. Let me know if I can assist you further.
