Question about RCA HD52W59 HDTV Projection Television

1 Answer

TV turns off and on constantly.

While watching programs, TV will turn off and then about 5 seconds later, will come back on. This will go on throughout the program staying on at different lengths of time. Eventually, the TV will shut off and not come back on. We are unable to turn it back on until 3-5 minutes have passed. Any suggestions on what is going on?

I have a rear projection Mitsubishi VS-70803 and fixed it with the help of eagle338 it was working fine for a year and a half. So new issue is I was watching TV and all the sudden i hear a faint spark


The set MAY have the self check feature.

If the set is plugged in and you turn it on and a few seconds later the power light goes off:

On front of set press and hold both the menu and input (device on some) buttons at same time for at least 5 seconds and release both.

Power light should then blink a two digit error code like 2 blinks, 2 blinks a pause and repeat the error for a total of 5 times.

If you get an error code let me know what it is.

I go to turn it on and it sizzles and shuts itself off.


Replace the flyback. You need the 259296 flyback replacement kit which has the flyback related capacitors and the CD with detailed instructions. The kit is available at www.tvrepairworld.com

I was watching it and it just shut off when i turn it on 3 seconds later it shuts off again


this set has a self diagnostic feature:

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;}


UNPLUG TV AND THEN PLUG BACK IN---TURN ON---GREEN POWER LIGHT COMES ON FOR A MOMENT AND GOES OFF.

PRESS AND HOLD “device” and “menu” buttons on front of tv for at least 5 seconds and then release both together.


Watch for power light to blink in a sequence:

1 blink-then 2 blinks-------no error

2 blink-then 1 blink-------X-ray protection

2 blink-then 2 blink-------SHORT PROTECTION*******

2 blink-then 3 blink---------deflection circuit problem

2 blink-then 4 blink---------vertical circuit problem


******2, then 2 is most common---usually means one of the fuses that protect the Convergence IC or IC’s is blown---set will detect no voltage to convergence IC and shut down.


SET WILL REPEAT BLINK ERROR CODE UP TO 5 TIMES AND THEN TO GET IT TO REPEAT MORE YOU HAVE TO UNPLUG SET AND TRY TO TURN ON AGAIN.


IF IT IS 2 AND THEN 2---USUALLY
CONVERGENCE CIRCUIT PROBLEM

Had a power outage while watching tv. Then 3 blinking lights.


This is an on-going problem with DLP sets. Normally you shut the set off and the cooling fan cools the lamp down and then it shuts off. In your case, of which it's not your fault, however your lamp has taken a major hit by not properly cooling down, in turn, you need to replace your lamp at this time.
I suggest in the future if you have an electrical storm and a chance of a power outage while your watching tv, I would'nt play that model or any other model of a DLP set.

When I power up, 5 seconds later this back projector TV turns itself off


t does sound like a bulb problem, either its over heating and shutting off to protect itself, or its already shot. Give a TV repair shop a call and see if they can give you an approximate price, then decide to ditch or repair it.

Check your lamp cover on the rear it may be loose which will cause the tv to turn off. Also the light under the power light is the lamp indicator. If it is blinking it may be getting ready to fail.

Tv turns self off when turned on


Does it blink a certain amount of blinks pause a second or just blink constantly with no pauses? Let me know it will blink a code if its going into protected shutdown. And it will blink constantly for another reason.
