Question about RCA HD52W59 HDTV Projection Television

1 Answer

TV wont turn on, makes buzzing noise and shuts off

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.

    I have the same problem.

    Thanks for the name of the tv the owner ripped it off.

    I was playing a video game then poof.

    The screen turned black and made a high pitched static noise.

    None of the channels work.

    You cant move to anything other than the black screen.

    Im sort of a nerd about this so it might be an internal problem of the tv.

    Maybe a cord was shorted or something.

    Hi, i have the same problem that you have i went to a shop and they said that one of the lights inside the tv got burned and had to be replaced and he said that it may cost from 350 to 550 bucks. I was like what!! I'm not fixing that so i haven't found a solution yet. I think is better to get a new one.

I have a rca hd50lpw62a and its slow to turn on and dim when on.

If your tv is around 2-4 yrs or used 6000-8000 hrs,never replaced the lamp before it could be time to replace it.If you hear strange noises like buzzing or humming noises it could be the color wheel which is a little disc that has a gamma of colors and spins at high rpms.When the light of the lamp goes through it creates the colors on your tv.The other most common failure is the board that powers the lamp,which is called the ballast.When its bad it will make a clicking sound or like wanting to turn on.Your part # for the lamp is 265866 and you can find it here: http://www.discount-merchant.com/RCA-265866-265919-269343-271326-270414-Lamp-p/rca-lamp-265866-26591-269343-r.htm Good luck and blessing for your house!

My RCA projection tv makes a loud buzzing, humming noise. Does as soon as turned on even before picture comes on, does not stop till tv is turned off.

buzzing noise is cause by small electrical arc inside the unit or a problem in your audio circuit.if you can open the unit up and check if its an electrical arc.

Buzzing noise, sound but no picture

It sounds as if the lamp needs to be replaced. The buzzing sound you hear is the ballast attemting to fire the lamp.
