RCA 52 INCH D52W20B WON'T COME ON

I have a RCA 52 inch HDTV model D52W20B when you press the power button the green power light flash about 3 or 4 times and that's it no sound no video. Everytime it flashes you can hear I guess the power supply kick on and back off. There was nothing wrong with the picture or sound before it went out. Before it went completely out you could press the power button and it would do the same thing. Wait about 30 minutes and it would come on. Now it does nothing. I would like to fix it myself since I have good soildering expertise. I think it's the main flyback on the main board loction is back left of board. I already almost have the mainboard pulled just can't figure out how to remove one wire that is on the flyback. I got the big red wire off, but there is another smaller black wire conntected to it. But just wanted a second say to make sure it's the flyback. Or what else it could be. Thanks Mine is a 52 in rca P52937SG it worked fine when it was new but one day come home from work tryed to turn it on got nothing no sound or video but you can here a small ticking or chirping in the front so I unpluged it the sound slowly went away some one said that it might be a bad flyback? if so where would I buy a new one and where is the flyback at in my tv.

thanks

A 1995 60 inch rca good picture and sound. Then it started a cracking noise and a hissing sound, then the picture went blurry. then it was nice picture and sound, then it died. took the back off and turned out the lights. Plugged the tv in and out from the wall socket and there was a sparking noise and a small arc when i plugged it in and out a few times ,at the part that the power plug plugs into.The white part that is beside the white power plug part has thick red wire coming out of it and goes into another plug that has more red wires in it. but the big white part beside the power plug part looks burnt and has black powder on it. that part is probably the problem but maybe not, what it the name of that part and how much would it cost and is it plugged in or soldered.

The flyback is going out and the CP150 capacitor is almost certainly failing as well. You can get the replacement Flyback number 259296 and the CP150 Capacitor at the following link and they provide step by step instructions with pictures so you can easially do the repair yourself. Here's the link.

RCA 52 INCH D52W20B WON'T COME ON


Just fixed it!!! Remove the back panel from the television, you will see a board where the input jacks are located. To the left you will notice a red power wire. Just up and to the right approx 7" or so you will see a [_] shaped metal shield surrounding a capacitor in the middle of it. The part # on the board is CP150. It is a green/gold 16v 2200uF capacitor. More than likely this capacitor is faulty. Run your finger over the top of the capacitor, if it is beveled rather than smooth you have a definite solution to your problem. You may need to remove the plastic piece that covers the transformer to the left of the capacitor to gain easy access. Good luck!!
