    My tv started cutting off about every 10 minutes for a couple days. Then it started working ok. One morning, about a week later, I turned the tv on; the power light came on for 5 to 10 seconds then went off. This happens every time I try to cut it on. It doesn't seem to want to power up. What is the problem with that.

    I have the same exact problem. Green light appears but no picture. Green light will click off and then on about three times but the picture or sound will not turn on. Should i call a mechanic and if so, what will the mechanic replace and how much will it cost me?

My RCA R52WH74 chassis # ITC222A wont turn on. The green power light comes on for about 10 seconds then shuts off. No picture, no sound. How do I fix it? Buying a new TV just isn't in out budget!

That model is famous for having issues with the deflection board failing. Replacing the deflection board should solve the issue. You can get replacement deflection board for the ITC222A chassis from under the RCA circuit boards catagory.

When I push the power button on my RCA HDTV R52WH74, the green light turns on for about 5 seconds and then off. NO sound and no picture.

Sounds like the bulb went out.
Go to and order a new bulb for under $200.
They are easy to intall; a screwdriver and 10 minutes.
