Depending on type and model you could have a variety of problems. If it is a DLP and flashes the LED 5 times it is like a bad lamp which you can order and replace yourself. If it is an older tv and you hear it chirp with each flash as it tries to come on, it is likely a bad HV splitter. Troubleshooting from there requires working around High Voltage, which can be very dangerous.

SOURCE: RCA Projection TV won't turn on

Ok you got you a Rca ITC222 I See ALOT of these things. To start the troubleshooting.. UNPLUG the set for a min of 30 min the plug back up. ( I have never seen this work) If the set stil fails to come on then you have a processor lockup. The first thing you can conclude if the light flashes is it is NOT a FUSE. THe sets processor has determined that a safety condition has occured and shuts it down to prevent further damage and fire. THe top cause of this include Horizontal output trasistor, flyback transformer and high voltage splitter. but There is about 25 different failures that can drive it into shut down. technicains have interface equipment that can read errors codes much like a car.
typical repairs on this set run 150 to 350... if you have to replace tubes...250 per tube +labor which runs 250 ... these set new cost 800 so unless under warrenty.. you got to determine if it is worth it.

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. 3 blinks in your RCA D52W17 rear projection are caused due to 3 capacitors (CP114, 120 and 150) which are located on the deflection board. If any of these capacitors goes bad you’ll have to replace them with the exact same ones. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

My RCA HDTV D52W23 Will not Turn On!!


Trying installing a new power supply. This is the main problem with tv's with the issue. But if you just bought it I would try to get my money back from where I bought it from. Installing a power supply for a tv is not that hard at all.

My TV won't turn on.


If this is a RCA Picture Tube Rear Projection, the Deflection Board will cause this problem. I do not know though if it is available.

RCA = flyback?


I just posted a reply to you. Its most likely not the flyback causing that symptom.

Check 3 capacitors on deflection board where the flyback is but they are located on front of board cp150 2200uf 16v cp111 330uf 35v cp114 220uf 35v Look at top of capacitor cp150 if it looks like it is bubbled on top it is bad so replace all 3.

Green light flashes


Same thing here....RCA tells me to count the times the light flashes as it apparently is set to "tell" you what the problem is.......3 to 5 flashes means your lamp is messed up.....they are over $300 to replace!

try changing the cap 150 on the same board as flyback transformer this should help with the tv not staying on.
