This chassis model line had issues with the vertical output IC shorting causing shut down.
It also had issues with intermittent solder connections in the Horizontal Circuit. I would not try to fix it your self unless you are very familiar with Projection circuitry and electronics background.
Hope this helps,
I have two RCA HD52W59 TV's. I have had one for 3 years and one 4 years. The one I have had for 4 years is giving me the problem. Last week the tv turned off while watching it. It wouldnt come right back on. 10 minutes later we tried and it worked fine. the other night the kids were watching and it turned off and smelled like something burning. I tried turning it right back on and got no power at all. I tried to turn it on two days later and it made a buzzing noise and the green light went out. Never did get a picture, no powering up on the screen. Any ideas? Don't want to spend alot of money. Really loved the TV hope it isnt junk now. Better yet I hope the same thing doesnt happen to the other one I have.
Isolate filament voltage from CRT,i.e. unplug
Crt socket from pix tube.Measure filament voltage on CRT PCB.If present,suspect bad pix tube.If missing,solder any/all connects in
filament circuit,meaning CRT board first then
Sounds like you have a problem with the blue gun in your picture tube or its drive circuit.
You might remove the back cover and gently tap on the neck of the picture tube using a plastic
screwdriver handle while watching the screen in a mirrow. If the picture flashes back on or on and off then the picture tube is the problem.
If this is a projection tv you have three separate tubes : red, green & blue.
you'd need to tap the blut one.Gently!!!!
the picture tube on your TV set is exausted. Please contact your nearest Authorized Sony Service for further help/advice.
After all, Sony is a good choice. The next TV set you buy could be one of Sony-s Bravia LCD.
