Question about RCA HD52W58 52" TV

Powers on. green light flashes then turns back off.

I can't turn the tv on. The manual says a lamp needs replacing. The manual does not reflect correctly the rear housing of the tv. I can't find this lamp.

    Reply to Abrsvcs posting 10/09/08. The model number is HD52W58 serial number E393C5026.

    Abrsvcs, the tv does have the red,green,blue lamps aimed toward a big mirror behind the screen. I have torn the tv apart trying to find this fourth lamp to no avail. I am 100% percent sure that the tv is a DLP model. Your comment suggests that there may be a different problem/solution. However, as have searched for a replacement bulb at the RCA website, they respond with a picture of the lamp in its cartridge or lamp only with prices from different vendors. I don't know which direction go in at this point.

    I have the same problem! when I try to turn the TV on the green light comes on then turns off, maybe a second later it'll turn back on by itself (green light) then turn back off.. Tv's probably only about 4 years old! Whats the problem?????

    This is so freaky. I have the exact problem. It doesn't seem as if there's anyone out here to help us. I too had this television for at least four years. The power switch turns on and turns right off.

If it turns out you need a lamp, you can follow the simple instructions available here for just about any make and model, including your RCA. The RCA website is useless and they never have parts in stock.

Please post the model number of your set. The category you have placed this question under is for a CRT based set that has no lamp. I should be able to help once I get the model number.

Thanks,
Dan

    If you see the red/green/blue CRTs, there are no other lamps. You DO NOT have a DLP machine. It is CRT based. What light is flashing and how many times? Is there any sound at all?



    Thanks,

Samsung model hlt4675sx\xaa projection tv wont work. the stand by/temp light flashes red and the lamp light flashes green? it makes the sound that it makes when it turns on but no picture. we looked at the...


It could be the temp sensor going bad. This sensor sits on top of the metal housing which the bulb assembly slides into. The bulb assembly will have a hole on top and this is where the sensor is above. There is a small blue and white wire that plugs into it. If you pull the wire out and put a paper clip or wire in the coupling you will basically bypass the sensor connecting the blue and white wire. If your tv turns on then that is your problem. Its cheap too. Here were my symptoms..1] Turn tv on 2] Bulb would light up..(which eliminates the ballast) regular picture would show up (which eliminates the bulb and color wheel) 3] 30 seconds later tv would shut down with 3 flashing lights. After bypass the tv turned on as always and hasnt shut down yet. Always un plug tv first. Get the replacement part to avoid overheating and possible fire

Tv wont turn on power button light flashing


If the power light flashes green for a while then you see three lights come on then suspect the lamp. The part number for the lamp will be located on the side of the TV on an orange and white sticker that says lamp code..

Watching tv when the picture went black and now the green on light flashes for 30 times and turns off


A green flashing light for this model of TV indicates that the lamp cover is open on the TV.
  1. Unplug the power cable to the TV.
  2. Remove the 2 retaining screws on the lamp cover with a Phillips type screwdriver.
  3. Remove the lamp door completely from the TV.
  4. Remove the two retaining screws on the lamp case.
  5. Lift up the fixed wire handle of the lamp.
  6. Pull out the handle slowly and remove the lamp case.
  7. Insert the new lamp gently into the correct position. Make sure it is inserted correctly.
  8. Using a manual Phillips screwdriver (Do Not use an electric screwdiver), tighten the screws you removed in
    step 3.
  9. Replace the lamp cover and tighten the cover screws.
  10. Plug in the power cord and turn on the TV. After the initial warmup period (which may take up to several
    seconds for full picture brightness), the TV should operate normally.
If any of the following conditions exist, turn off the TV, unplug the power cord, and repeat steps 1–9 to ensure that the lamp unit and lamp unit
door are installed correctly:
  • The lamp indicator flashes green.
  • No picture
  • Dark picture
  • TV will not turn on
If, after repeating steps 1–10, the problem still exists, call Customer Service at 1-800-631-3811.

TV won't stay on


Hello Fonzell!
Regarding the tv turning, my question is, do you hear a clicking sound? if so, it's most probable tio be your ballast, that might not have enough voltage to keep on with your lamp, and that's why it shuts off.
You could try replacing it and seeing if it resolves your issue, I believe they're running around 70 dlls..
have a great one ! :)

Samsung DLP HL-S5087W 56" Confused...


Mine did that when the color wheel didn't spin up...just give it a whack where you installed the light & the wheel should spin up. I had to replace my color wheel as the bearing was shot & was buzzing all the time. The light won't come on if the wheel doesn't spin up first.
