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

1 Answer

RCA HDTV I saw some of you comments about the flyback transformer on the rca tv's. Mine doesn't turn on at all, the green light blinks and there is a funny noise. On one of your comments you asked about the noise when trying to turn it on.

These sets are bad about the flyback transformer and/or the horizontal output going bad. Have a repair shop check it out. This can be pricey depending on how much is bad.

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.

Tv will turn on


leadfoot,
i believe the problem is the flyback transformer. try cleaning by using a small aerosal can. this will either correct the problem or you might have to replace it.

flyback transformer stores energy so i would suggest hiring a professional technician.

That crackly sound could be the flyback transformer sizzleling. if thats the case the horiozontal output transistor is probably bad as well. This repair should be done only by a quilified service person and shouldnt cost over 200 bucks if that much UNLESS of course it was the power sullpy shorting out but most likly in this set what i mentioned. Good Luck
