D52w26 film capacitor

You can replace it with a ceramic capacitor. They are interchangeable, but ceramic disc capacitors are considerably more nonlinear in their voltage and frequency response compared to film capacitors. Ceramic caps can also be microphonic. (Source: https://www.apogeeweb.net/electron/the-film-capacitor-and-its-application.html )

Suspect your POWER SUPPLY. Either your supply is faulty OR something else in your TV is demanding too much CURRENT (from the supply) and your supply may be 'protecting itself' with 'emergency shutdowns'. These links and PHOTO WILL help you ~ if you are serious about repairs! I know it's not quite the same model number as yours, but the steps and efforts remain similar.

Finally, this REAL 'old puppy' that DEMANDS LOTS of AC POWER to fire-up your 3 'super-bright' projector lamps inside! Are you sure you won't consider pushing this TV to the curb instead of investing HOURS of your life to fix this one? I'm confident you have spent LOTS MORE on your POWER BILL (over the years) than the cost of a NEW Flat Screen model! GO ahead ~ you deserve a quality TV... but stick to known brands like LG - VIZIO and Panasonic to avoid the "no parts/boards available" problem (way down the road). *(Your TV is so old that the Internet has NO CLUE when they first made this model)*? Also I see a whole ARRAY of problems with this series and it's no surprise that yours has similar problems! Anthony caps-kdyjdwarbd3z5nhdyovdacdm-5-0.jpg

Coaxial input jack on the TV broken off so I cannot connect my coaxial cable from wall

If you are comfortable doing some small repair work, you might be able to fix this with stuff you have laying around.

All you need is:
1 - 8" piece of coaxial cable with male connector on one end
1 - set of RCA cables (Red/White/Yellow)
1 - coaxial coupler
2 - small wire nuts

electrical tape

Take the back housing off of your TV. You may have to unscrew the small nut holding the threaded connector to the TV. This threaded connector should connect to the motherboard with a male RCA prong that should be soldered to the component on the motherboard. You will need to carefully cut
& remove the old soldering & wiggle the connector off. This is the hardest part, but it WILL come off with a little trying.

Now get your coax cable and strip off about 2" of the black outside housing ONLY. Your solid copper` interior cable should be protected by a small plastic coating which is covered in braided wire. You'll need to be careful not to cut the braiding off. Untangle the braiding down to where your cut stops and try and get it all on one side of the cable so you can twist it all together and make a nice wire. Now strip about an inch off of your interior plastic sheathing to reveal the small solid copper wire on the very inside.

Get your RCA cable and cut about 6" off of the one yellow side. Follow the same process above to get a braided sheathing wire and a solid copper wire. Attach this yellow wire to the coaxial cable by twisting the two braided wires together and the two solid copper wires together. Use your wire nuts & electrical tape to secure your connections making sure none of the wires can touch each other.

Connect the yellow cable's male prong into the component on the motherboard and attach your coaxial coupler to the male end of your coaxial cable. If you saved the small nut from earlier, you can re-attach this new coupler to the housing on your TV. Screw your housing back on the TV and you should be good to go.

You have a bad flyback transformer. This is a common problem that eventually goes bad in the ITC 222 chassis. You have to get the model number with the code at the end of it after the /. And sometimes you must have the numbers from off the flyback itself. Try to contact MCM electronics for the flyback at 1-800-543-4330. First see if they can match it with the model number with the code after the /.

The green crt on my rca tv has light but no picture inside. i changed fluid. still same. the red and blue have crystal clear pictures. also makes a real fast clicking noise and takes five miutes to co

The problem is the driver for the green tube. Without test equipment this could be hard to track down. Also the fluid is just to keep those high intensity tubes from overheating.
