Question about RCA D56W20 56" Rear Projection Television
I recently to my own stipudity plugged my T.V. into 220V. I'm in Germany and before I realized it wasn't a dual votlage T.V. it was too late. Is there an easy to replace fuse I may have blown? I hope!...I heard it fizzle or pop?
Opps! Your problem is most likely in the power supply section. No doubt a blown fuse, a diode or two and probably a few resistors. To be sure that you found all the problems you will need to check all the components in the power supply. If you know how to use a DMM have at it, safely of course. First unplug it, if you already haven't done so. Check the fuse for continuity. If you are lucky that may be your only problem, but don't count on it. Look for burned components or burn marks on the circuit board. Don't overlook resistors with large values and replace any components which do not test within the proper parameters. When you are sure that you found all the problems don't plug the unit back in to 220 or you will have to do it all again. Get the appropriate sized 220/120 transformer which means one with a current rating higher than the current draw of the TV. That information should be on the data tag on the rear of the unit. Again, remember safety and Good luck.
