Question about RCA HD52W56 52" Rear Projection HDTV
A friend of mine flipped the switch on the tv's surge protector. when the tv was plugged back in the green light on the power button was on steady. i pushed the power button and the light went out, the tv clicked (power supply turning on i take it, was the normal click sound), then the power light on the tv came back on. watched tv all night long. the next day i unplug the tv (power off) to move it and some furniture. later in the day i plug the tv back in the green power light is on steady, the power button does not work, when i unplug the tv you can hear the hi voltage power down ( that "zip" / "chirp" sound that a crt does when you power it up or down) i can't tell if the guns in the tube are lite or not. I'm assuming power supply. thanks!
First: Check the power outlet. Check it with a good lamp so you know you are getting power to the set.
Secondly: Check the power cord. Wiggle it around the molded ends to make sure it is not open inside the molded portion of the plugs.
Thirdly: If you know for sure the set is getting power and still no indication at all (you should be getting some little light on the front panel; standby indication) then there may be a fuse on the back panel or just inside the back cover (you will have to remove it; after unplugging the power cord) that needs replaced.
Fourthly: After all these checks if you are getting nothing, you may have some failure inside that is very serious. Normally we do not recommend serious repairs to a set over 4 years of age. This is because the set is likely to develop some other problem soon after the repair is made; further, the repairs are getting more expensive day by day while the price of new sets is coming down dramatically. Lastly, the new sets have better picture, longer lasting circuits and better features.
Hope this is a good solution for you.
thanks for your questions.
