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

1 Answer

I have an understanding

I've built several electronic pieces throughout the years. I even made an O2/Fuel meter that retails for @$200. I built 2 for about $11. (A little more considering I bought several resistors, IC chip sockets, boards, and LED's- Was going to make a lot of them- plus, cheaper in bulk) Like I was saying, based on the research on the net, it appears the RCA flyback is bad. I desoldered it and noticed the discolorations on the flyback and a gray/brown area off center on the board where it was attached. As a kid, I used to fix cordless phones (one of which had the board broken IN HALF). I'm also familiar with the use/operations of diodes, resistors, capacitors, transformers, reprogramming automotive PCM's (made my own "dump" program for reprogramming EECIV Ford by using two trashed computers for their plugs and making a J4 to do it) and a lot more. When it comes to TV's and how to make them work- yeah, I don't have an overall understanding why mine will not come on. That's particularly the reason I posted in the first place-

Retail value

unfortunately not very much since most of the parts are no longer available for that model. I would think 200 would be fair if the set is in good working condition.

Convergence won't align on the bottom half of the screen.

You will need to replace the IC amps according to what that tv needs. If you do the research and replace them yourself u will save 200-500 dollars. Again only attempt replacing yourself if you are capable of understands electronics repair.

Crack and hole in the screen...

There are several parts distributors in the US that supply parts for Hitachi TV's You can try Herman Electronics, Tritronics and PAC parts, all have websites. Be prepared for the cost: a new screen will be in the $300-$400 range. It's not just a piece of ordinary plastic; it's actually two pieces of specially designed plastic designed to disperse the light evenly, called a lenticular and a fresnel.

Hi I just adopted a Samsung LNT4669F from someone for free and they told me it doesn't work due to the fact that the man dropped it. I tried plugging it in but not even a click. Any ideas? Thanks C

Any time you drop a piece of sensitive electronics like a television you run the risk of breaking several different electronic connections. You will need to break open the tv and look for anything obvious. If you don't then you will most likely need to pay for a repair that will many times cost more than the tv is worth. Impossible to say from what you have told us so far.
