Question about RCA D61W20 61" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

TV requires multiple attempts to turn on

Each morning when we turn on our RCA HD Rear Projection 61", Model D61W20B, it takes 10 or 12 attempts before it will come on. The power light on the front will come on and go off in sequence 3 times and then go out. Subsequent attempts after a 1 minute wait each time give the same sequence until it finally comes on after multiple attempts. For 10 or 15 seconds after it finally comes on there are horizontal bars across the picture, then it will clear up and works just fine with a great picture. The longer the set is left off, the longer it takes to get it to come on again.

I have an electronics background and it sounds like a power supply noise problem, perhaps caused by a weak capacitor. If you know what the problem is or where I can get a schematic I would appreciate your help. I don't mind doing some of the simpler component replacements myself.

thanks,

You have discribe a problem that sounds like a powersupply cap. It may also be more than one. LOOK at the board very hard for bad caps.

What you most likely have is a convergence problem. The convergence circuitry is used to align your colors. What you describe sounds like that circuit has failed. Here’s a link to a decent video that will give you an idea of what is needed to fix it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S6Wa8FvSz-s

TV does not turn on model RCA D61W20B


first check all fuses they are small, square ,RED and can be confused with the square small caps. the sizzling is prob. the flyback transformer (what the h.v. wires from each tube plugs into) if you are only getting green then tv shuts down or is dead now. i would replace any bad fuses and replace the flyback transformer. also make sure you do a very good visual inspection of all the boards.
