Question about RCA D52W20 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Won't turn on

My television will not turn on. When I try to turn it on the green power button will flash 1 time and then 6. The flashing repeats itself until I unplug it. I am sure this must be some kind of trouble code but do not know what it means. I have left it unplugged for a couple of hours and it still does the same thing. Please help!

Timer light will not go off and I cannot turn on TV

Are you asking about the wd62525? If so that's a v26 chassis and equipped with a self diagnostic test by flashing a series of two digit sequence after depressing the power button. After depressing the power button count the number of flashes - then you'll see a slight pause - then another series of flashes. (for example: four flashes, pause and four more flashes is an error code 44). The unit repeats this coding at least three times so be as accurate as possible...

Green flashes then tv turns off

or a new lamp. you could first replace the lamp.
the screen might work fine for a couple of seconds, but then it fades away or deteriorates. This means the lamp is going bad.

Mitsubishi VS-50705, 50 inch Rear projection TV won't turn on!

most of the time the convergance ic go bad:
but try this:
The 3 flashes of the led when you plug the unit in is the
microprocessor initializing.

This unit has an error code diagnostics.

On the front panel of the unit press and hold the INPUT and MENU
buttons at the same time and hold them down for about 5 or 6 seconds.
The unit should activate it's error code mode.

The led will flash count the number of flashes. It will then pause for
1/2 or 1 second. The led will flash again count the number of flashes.
The unit will repeate this for about 5 or 6 times.

You now have the two digit error code. The first time the led flashed
is the first number of the error code, the next time the led flashed is
the last number of the error code.

12 ----------- indicates no error
21 ------------- X-Ray Protect circuit
22 ------------ Short Protect circuit
23 ------------- Horizontal Deflection failure
24 ------------- Vertical Deflection failure

Most units give a error code "22" short protect circuit. If so check:


If Q5A00 check bad there are other parts that have to be checked or

If you are able to do above call a tech to service the unit

ON/OFF button (red - off and on - green) flashing all the time

it is important to count the number of red flashes, if it is 5 then the lamp ballast board has failed, (part #1-468-798-14) if it is 4 then the optical block fan (# 178706511) is probably to blame, if it is 6 then the thermal fuse has gone bad..(# a1137954a)
