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

I have a ge side by side refrigerator/freezer and i'm hearing a sizzling sound from the freezer side. Sounds like water is hitting the heating element causing a sizzling noise. Should I empty th


If you are sure the sound is coming from the freezer side, then yes you should empty the frrezer and take off the rear shield. While the heating element is normally encased in glass or plastic. Water droplets hitting an electrical connection could also cause a sizzling sound.

Hi i have an optoma dv10 but when you put in any dvd it just comes up no disc


Seems a very common problem with this model from what i can glean on the web.. Mine failed excatly as yours nine months ago and my local electronic repair man said optoma refuse to supply him with parts.I had to rig it up to a DVD player, but now the colour wheel has gone kaput. Optoma quoting £300 to fix but won't say exactly until you send it back to them. Have decided to buy Epson and cut my losses..

It shifts slow and doesn't seem to have much power


Sounds like the catalytic converter is about ready to go bad. When the cat goes bad the car struggles to start, then when you try to acelerate its very slow. Start your car and have a friend rev the engine. Put your hand close to the tailpipe. I am willing to bet that not much pressure comes out when engine is reved up. I had mine replaced about a year ago. This sounds exactly like the same problem I had. The local pontioac dealer changed mine out for free. Check back I am interested in the results.

Humming from back of tv


sounds like your powerboard, you can try a cheap fix by putting a small fan behind the tv on low and see if that helps. Also I would not settle for this and call in the warranty and get it fixed while you can.

Tv cuts off and green light flashes


If your set was manufactured around July 2005, you may need a firmware upgrade to solve this issue. On the Sony website you can enter your model # and serial # to see if you TV is affected. If so, it is easy to have done and may be free from Sony. It sounds like the issue they described in the writeup on the required formware update. I had mine done within few months of when i bought it (purchased in Dec 2005) and it has been working flawlessly since.

Good luck!
