    My tv is actually a HD52W59. I've turned the computer off (over night) and it's doing the same thing.

This is a difficult set to troubleshoot. Do you know how to use a meter and solder? If so we might be able to fix this one at compoent level. You can have many things wrong at this time. The flyback transformer is common to go bad, the trippler is common to go bad, and the signal board is common to go bad. We need to check the collector of the hoizontal output for a short and if its not shorted we need to check it for voltage at turn on. Let me knwo if you can do this and I will show you where this is located if you dont know.

Try first disconnecting the power cord for one hour or so.

If after restarting you still get the problem, it means that there is a problem with one of the internal components.

I can try tracking the error code and see what the problem is.

    3 flashes is code 33, convergence error.

    That is a convergence problem, to fix it it is necessary checking the soldering at the yokes, test
    horizontal convergence IC, test a couple of capacitors and resistors on
    convergence circuit, and sometimes the technician may have to replace the whole convergence pcb inside.

    The wole job starts from $80 and usually costs over $200, depending on what parts must be replaced.

    To get service you can call the number listed on the owner manual, or look for support on RCA.com website.

    If you contact RCA you can also ask them if they provide guaranty extension. This is usually cheaper than the repair cost, and gives you one or two years additional guaranty cover.




    Let me also know if there is any additional error message on display.

What's your problem?i have a rca tv model number d52w14 and it will not turn on just the power button comes on and goes off three times?


The set actually has a "3 strikes and you are out design".

It will try three times and if fails shut the set down.

This model is prone to bad solder connections at and near the high voltage transformer---also to bad parts in that same area which include: the transformer, the sweep transistor near it, and the high voltage splitter block it feeds.

My tv is a RCA D52W14 the green power light comes on then goes off the television takes a long time to turn on


Bad capacitors on the deflection board CP150, CP120 and CP114 very common for that model. You can get the repair kit by that same name from www.tvrepairworld.com which has the capacitors and the CD with repair instructions

RCA D52w14 light on power button blanks three times then goes off


In the middle of the deflection board. The one on the fall left from the back.There is a heatsink with three sides to it. Inside it there is a capacitor . If the top is swollen replace it. I think it is c150.
