Im sorry to tell ya pal, this set is famous for the Flyback transformer to go bad, and alot of these are not available anymore. I would check first with a local RCA shop. Then I would contact Thompson Corp in Canada to see if they can assist you as a two year old set should still have parts available. Good Luck Please do not forget to rate this thread!

Read comment by techman. On such a large set it must be devastating. My advice to everybody buying second hand goods of any type is to look inside if possible before you plug it in to the mains. Check for bodge-ups and missing screws and things taped due to damage and bad soldering. Also there may be incorrect components which will work but are overstressed. Make sure the inside is clean so that you can see everything. With great care and not coming close, and if everything is held in place, you may switch the set on with the back off to observe if anything is actually overheating. Do not poke anything unless you know what it is (using a long piece of dowel rod).

52 Inch RCA TV Model HD52W55 does not turn on green power light blinks 3 times but does not turn on. ive got it to turn on once before, and left it on since, accidently shut it off and cant get it back on,...

The best assumption, at this point, is that the power supply board has died. You can buy a replacement unit from the link below and have it professionally installed.

My Philips TV will not turn on

More than likely it's activating the protection circuitry. Most of the time televisions won't give you a sign of trouble until something actually breaks. One day they work and the next they might not. There could be a problem in the power supply or the scan section which are both internal that would inhibit operation to prevent your set from overheating and causing a problem external to the TV like a fire. If your set is over 10 years old, replace it. If it's quite new but out of warranty then get an estimate at a reliable electronics repair store.

This may denote a proble in either your switching powers supply or your Horizontal section derived high voltage power supply. These are both very dangerous sections in your television. My next question is important; do you have a background in electronics? If not I would not advise you working on this problem yourself and that you take the TV to a repair shop for servicing. If you do have some background in electronics, I would like for you to make the following obeservations: What was the TV doing (it actions)prior to it going out? Did you hear any sounds before it went out like buzzing or crackling? What do you hear when you try to turn it on now, clicking? These questions are just to develop some background into what might be happening to your set. Thank you, Shuttle83

Rca truflat with green tinted picture?

Just because a machine has failed, there is no cause for you to call it a stupid TV. And as it is only 6 months old, why not take it to the Company service Centre? There must be warranty.

Hehehe Its all in a matter of taste I like sony and Mitsubishi. You like RCA you get what you pay for. These sets are good for the L401 in the horizontal drive circuit to cause your problem as well as a blown fuse and a shorted horizontal output trasistor and the flyback transformer. if its anything Im thinking off the repair cannot be done by a handi person and should be taken to a pro and will cost in the range of150 to 225.00 for this repair. good Luck
