HD52W59 Won't turn on, makes dwwwwooooop ing noise

My tv was working fine. We shut it off for the night and the next time we tried to power it on it first made a strange popping sound...then the green light came on but a strange dwooooop noise came from the back of the tv and then the tv shut itself off. Now each time I try to turn it on it does the same thing. I haven't heard the popping noise again, just the dwooop noise from the back. I've called RCA they were of no help, except to say that I should call their service center. My warranty is expired (of course) so I am trying to find the most inexpensive way to get this fixed. If its a part that needs to be replaced, its likely we can do this ourselves. Please help. Thanks. (I have to play Rockband soon or life will be meaningless for me...LOL)

Hello TammyTVProb,
I just gave this solution to someone that has the same problem as you, so I hope this helps.
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,

We have the RCA HD52w59 projection tv. The tv shuts itself off at different intervals. It takes approximately 1 minute to be able to turn the power button back on, however, I have to do that many times...


A problem in the deflection board. Could be a Cap. Resoldering the deflection board may take care of the problem. You need to call a TV man to do this kind of work.

Best of luck

My RCA HDTV remote won't work with the regular tv. It was working fine last night until i pressed the tv botton and the volume button.


One thing you can try is to take the batteries out of the remote and then press every button on the remote, then replace the batteries. I have used this technique several times and it works. If that doesn't help try leaving the batteries out over night, this may reset the remote.

I hope this helps.

TV wont turn on, makes buzzing noise and shuts off


I have two RCA HD52W59 TV's. I have had one for 3 years and one 4 years. The one I have had for 4 years is giving me the problem. Last week the tv turned off while watching it. It wouldnt come right back on. 10 minutes later we tried and it worked fine. the other night the kids were watching and it turned off and smelled like something burning. I tried turning it right back on and got no power at all. I tried to turn it on two days later and it made a buzzing noise and the green light went out. Never did get a picture, no powering up on the screen. Any ideas? Don't want to spend alot of money. Really loved the TV hope it isnt junk now. Better yet I hope the same thing doesnt happen to the other one I have.

Mitsubishi wd-65831 one night worked fine next day nothin..


If you hear a whining noise, the odds are it is the color wheel, the bearings are bad in it and will need to be replaced as a whole unit, kinda pricey, my suggestion, sale the bulb and all boards in it and which should fetch about 400+ and invest in a new TV, a color wheel is pricey unless you can find a deal

TV wont turn on.


I am sorry to hear about your problem with your rca... I work on these sets daily. (so that should tell you how dependable..First thing you can tell is that is not the main fuse.. THe main processor is recieving power and then something in the startup procedure upset the processor.. so it shut it down. unfortantly thats where the troubeshooting begins....technicians have specail computer equipment that alows them to read errors codes much like that of a car... most of the time it will be a high voltage issue. hoizontal transistor. flyback..if you have to replace a board you may even need special euipmwent to do that...Does the set make any noises chirps or squeals..did it smell ...what what is doing when it whent out
