Question about RCA Scenium HD65W20 65" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Pop and burning smell now no picture

We were watching it, heard a "pop" and smelled burning electronics. The on button works, the power comes on and you can hear the relays coming on like normal, but there's no picture, and the TV shuts itself off after 10 seconds or so. Would this be the High Voltage unit?

If you're NOT still under warrantee you should at least open the TV and look for a blown fuse near where the power cable enters the set. A lot of times you can buy replacement fuses at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace. Check the fuse. If it is blown, it will be obvious and make sure that the set is unplugged before replacing it. If it blows again, or if it is not blown, your problem is probably in the 'X' volt regulator and you will need professional help with the repairs. You can also check the board where the components are mounted and resoled any that look bad. Brief power outages may cause the TV to turn off on its own. If you are using a surge protector, try connecting the set directly to the wall outlet. In your case it could caused by a blown fuse, a leaky diodes or a bad solder joint at the horizontal drive transformer. All can be replaced at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace If this does not correct the problem, you may need to have your TV serviced. good luck!

While watching tv we heard a pop and the receiver stopped working. Power button does nothing. We've opened it up but can't see anything that looks burnt or fried...


It could be a relay that burnt out, they usually dont show any signs of damage, or the motherboard could be fried too with no signs of damage eather! Hope this helps!

That was likely a capacitor that popped. Slight burning smell? You may need to have a technician come out to resolder a connection or two.

The relays in these units blow, hence the popping noise you heard, disconnect power and remove the electronic control board. Flip it over and look under the relays, you will see burn marks under the one that blew. You can order a new board from Amana for around $130.

RCA HDTV #D61W20, CHASSIS ITC222, Power button flashing 1, pause, 9. Possible error code 19, anyone know what this means


This is not a friendly chasis, the only easy fix that you might check on the power supply board and the left side (looking from the back) 3 capacitor (220,330,and 2200uf 16V) have the top pop up. Other than that poping, arcing noise, burn smell when first start up is bad york, Flyback Transformer and even the cooling leak for those tubes you will need professional TV repair man. Those TV picture not very nice anyway.

1St. need to konw how many times the light bilks, it sould bilk a # of times then a short pause then repeat the # of bilnks again & again. The number of blinks is a an error code to help locate the cause of a fault. it is not allways accurate, but it's usually right. give the # of bliks & i will try to get you into the right circuit.
