Question about RCA HD52W56 52" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Tv won't turn on. power indicator light comes on then goes off after about three seconds, then retries twice more then locks out.

I,ve also tried holding the power button in the on position, and it flashes once [the indicator light] then flashes nine times then locks out. i'm assuming this is some kind of diagnostic code, but i can't find any blinking codes on line. any suggestions?

Re: tv won't turn on. power indicator light comes on then...

That is what these sets will try to do if the power supply detects a short. The set will try three times to come on then shut down again till you pull the plug or press the power again. It is not really a diagnostic code. Most likly your problem is the horizontal output transistor and or the flyback transformer. Very common problem for this set. good Luck Please do not forget to rate this thread.

65" mitsubishi rear projection tv won't turn

IF model number posted is correct and green power light comes on for a few seconds and then goes off:
On front of set press and hold both the Menu and Input (device) buttons at the same time for at least five seconds and release both buttons.

Power light will then blink a two digit error code like 2 blinks, 2 blinks, a pause and repeat it several times.

Let me know what error code is found and I will tell you what it means.

My 8yr. old ws-48511 TV boots up (green light blinks shortly then goes out) after being pluged in, but when you turn it on, the green light comes on then goes off. (will not power on).What is the problem?

When the set powers off after pressing power try pressing the menu and input buttons on the set both in together and hold for 6 seconds to see if the power indicator will blink a two digit blink code which repeats a few times indicating a specific error. Let me know the blink code if any.

The tv is going into protection shutdown. It will try to power up three times, but each time it tries, the microprocessor recognizes an overvoltage, or overcurrent draw, and after three attempts it will place the unit into protection shutdown. There can be many causes of this, but the most likely one is that there is a short circuit in the high voltage circuits. You probably have a shorted flyback and associated components.

TV doesn't turn on

You really should give make & model number when posting, it helps us immensely, your lamp and possibly the ballast is bad, start with a new lamp first, odds are very good that it will fix your problem, can`t help more without manufacturer and model number, good luck, ps, order the original lamp, generics are junk and a waste of your money.
