Question about RCA D52W20 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Comes on sizzles then goes off

Sounds like these tv's are common with the same problem.
Mine started about two months ago just cut out then back on thought it was wierd but but didn't pay much mind to it. Then turned it on and it went off turned it back on and it stayed on. New there was going to be trouble
Now when I turn it on hear a sizzle and it turns off. Took the back off and turned it on and can see it lighting up under the board(fire starting) on the left side looking in at the back. Thats the problem board.TV still works great and hate the thought of it going in the dump for a easy fix Do you have a service manual? Do you know where to get parts? Please get back to me
Thanks

The sizzling sound is very probably arcing on the fire charred PC board. Warning: there is a dangerous possiility of fire. Do not attempt to operate the set any longer without having it serviced.
If you want to service it yourself, replacement boards may still be available. Contact manufacturer's parts department

Need Help big screen turns on thens goes off


a tv has two components, firstly a power supply produces high voltage to trigger a line transformer, in turn a transformer produces smaller voltages. firstly check if the ht is constantly been produced from a supply, if this is there than go to a line transformer, and check voltages at the output.

TV Picture Goes Black


I had the same exact problem.
I removed the bulb and cleaned it. There is a small screen at the top of the bulb and it was covered with dust. Once it was cleaned I replaced the bulb and it solved the problem.
Thanks to those who posted the solutions
