RCA D52W19 SPARKS IN REAR

My RCA is 2 1/2 years old, not under warranty anymore. Yesterday I heard loud noise, I jumped up and looked behind. There were sparks coming out of the back. I unplugged it. It is going to cost $100.00 just to get it looked at. Is it worth fixing? or Should I just replace it?

    Thanks! Yes there was power when the tv sparked...and it did not trip the breaker...A friend said it most likely was the transformer?? Have you ever heard of this before?? Thanks again!!

The high voltage transformer could be the cause and isn't that tough to replace on RCA's. The units I have seen "spark" have had holes in the side of the transformer which allows 30KV to find its path to ground anyway it can. I wouldn't suggest just the average person attempt this repair though.

Was there actually power when the Television was sparking? I would suggest replacing the power module and having someone test the voltage coming out of the plug it was plugged into did it trip the breaker?

My rca d52w19 projection television started to make a crackeling sound like water dripping on a hot skillet. now it is making a loud pop and when it does the screen goes out and back on again. i have been...

The loud pop you hear is a spark gap being jumped. That might happen once an awhile naturally due to a voltage spike but if it's happening regularly chances are something needs replacing. Capacitors are prime suspects for aging, in fact when a capacitor(big one) blows it sounds just like that.

Yesterday, I went to use the microwave and as I pushed start, I heard a loud pop and saw sparks behind the vent cover. The microwave light and turn table work fine, but it does not heat. Is it repairable?

sounds like your magnetron went out . check how old it is, sometimes the manufacture gives a 5-10 yr warrenty on part if no warranty on unit then it may not be worth fixing depending on how much u spent on it. part roughly 89.99-139.99 labor 85-165.00 depending on who u use and were u live. hope this helps . thanx..

Thats usually a sign of the flyback or HV Splitter nearing the end of their operational lifespan. However its not an exspensive fix unless done ay a repair shop then it can be a few hundred.
