Question about RCA D61W20 61" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

I need to know whats wrong with this tv and how much it will cost to fix

The power light comes on but once you try to turn the tv on you will hera a weird sound like its going to turn on but you get nothing. It smells like something is burning when you do this. I took the back cover off. Excuse my lack of knowledge but the gadget on the circuit board that has focus and screen adjustment screws on it, is burnt. theres this thick piece of metal, that kind of looks like a magnet that is attached to the circuit board and goes right through this gadget piece i was talking about. Do you have any idea what im talking about?

When press power button, power light comes on, but tv does not come on

Does the weird noise sound like a whining noise? Like something is spinning? If so then your color wheel is going out.

Weird smell coming from my samsung LN32D403E2DXZA LCD 403 Series TV

Sounds like an electrical burn from a circuit that is almost touching or is touching another circuit. Or it is an exposed insulated power supply wire that is uncovered and arcing to earth itself on the plastic casing. In any instance I recommend you call the store from which you bought it and tell them about it. They should replace it no question. Unless it is past it's warranty. It could start a fire, so please unplug it from the power supply before you go to bed.

Hi Thanks for your question
I think you are right about power supply. This would be my diagnose. Be careful with your PC because faulty power supplies may fry your motherboard. I would recommend replacing it. This isn't expensive and it's pretty easy to get done. I hope this helps. Good Luck

Hitachi Plasma not getting power

What it sounds like is the fuse on your power board has blown, or the power board itself has gone bad. You will need to remove the back of the tv, and visually inspect the power board, also note any weird smells. You can also check the fuse at this time. If it is not your power board, please let me know while you have the back off as I can walk you through any further steps at that time.

My RCA D52W20 will not stay on

Clicking sound is power relay engaging. If all systems are not functioning properly, unit will shut down to prevent further damage and/or fire hazard
