    I have already tried unplugging the TV and replugging. Like you said that didnt work :) It sound like it might be better just to buy a new TV. Thanks for you help!

    I have the exact problem. We gave up on our TV, then I had to give her one last try. I disconnected and reconnected the tv plug from the back of the TV and then it worked...for only one day. I am again seeking additional suggestions. I have now unplugged it and will wait an hour. It sounds like it might be a done deal. bummer.

Hello. You have a Rca d52w20 this is what is known as a itc222 chasis. and i see this set alot at our shop. The first thing that you can do is to unplug and wait 30 min to hour and replug the set in. this essetian\lly resets the processor. ( I have never seen this work) but is the first thing we do. THe most likely cause for this will be what is called the horizontal output transistor and flyback transformer in which a technician can replace these components. This set has a processor that will shut the unit down for any of about 25 different reasons for safety. so there is no warning it eather works or dont. technicans have special test equipment that read error codes much like those in cars. this is ussally the first thing that i help start troubleshooting. WARNING this set genrates high voltages that stay with the set even after unpluged. so please be careful. Now this is the bad news on these sets. u have to determine if this set is worth it. averge repairs at my shop run 250 to 500 and if one of the tubes is damaged that can run 800+ these set sold for 800 at walmart.

RCA 20

sounds like the Power Transformer to me,  usually accompanied by a high pitch (almost inaudiable whine) and  sparks arcing.


This needs a professional repair..
