Question about RCA D52W20 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

D52W20 TL120 transistor

I need a part number for the TL120, I ordered the Thompsons manual and it is difficult to read and it does not match the circuit board I have. We started with only one green light and changed out the flyback. Now we have three blinks and cannot find the part number for the TL120 HELP

    No squealing sound at all and the transister in question is a little smaller than the H.O.T. that is on the heat sink. The transister is located at L-4 on the board

  • bgbrd9 Sep 15, 2008

    It has three leads, looks just like the H.O.T. but is a little smaller

  • bgbrd9 Sep 15, 2008

    The TL120 is just at the right corner of the middle heat sink

    circled in yellow

  • bgbrd9 Sep 17, 2008

RCA 52inch d52w20 not powering on, green light comes on then goes

If you have to ask, its best that you let a trained tech do it. The horz. transistor controls the H/V -flyback basically a switch for high voltages. when it fails you get no power up. Julio It can be very dangerous to work with.

First you need to read the supply voltages to the STK's. Black things, size of 2 match books on a big heatsink. Sounds like your supply voltage is low, could be a bad STICK STK. usyually stk 130-20 or 150, etc..

52inch RCA model#D52W20 tv

the d52w20 rca chasis itc222 can be difficult to troubleshoot sometimes. there a few things you can assume at this stage. ONe it is NOT the fuse. The processor in this set is seeing a voltage or saftey shutdown issue. and is shuting the set down for saftey. THis is where the troubleshooting begins. High voltage or overcurrent conditions are generely the problem. \technicians have speceil computer diagnostic equipment that can read error codes in the processor. much like in a car. but without it yo0u pretty much have to check things like horizontal ouput transitor.
