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

1 Answer

RCA 52' I had the problem where the green light flashes 3 times. So i changed cp150, Cp 114, CL220 , And the flyback, the only one that looked bad was cp150. After reinstalling the board the tv came on and stayed on for a few minutes. then i shut it off. I came back 2 days later finished puting it back together and had a hard time getting it to come on. Then it came on and was on for a few minutes and a heard a pop and seen a flash in the screen. If i shut it off and turn it back on it will do that 3 times then shut off.

    checked both of them no fluid that i can see. I did find the sizzleing sound under the deflection board it was coming from a device directly behind the flyback maby CL031 it is a grey rectangle thing. i resoldered it and reinstalled the board. Now all I hear is a noise from the right speaker (If you are looking at the set) Green light comes on three times same sound all three times.

    Yes cp 150 was bad. I changed it as well as cp114 and CL 230. Are them the 3 that you are talking about changing together or did i miss one. Thank you for your help.

    OK lets go back to the start you said that cp150 was only cap that looked bad was it bubbled up on top? The reason am asking is if cp150 is bad 2200uf 16v capacitor there is also 2 other capacitor you must replace when this one is bad they are 220uf 35v, somtimes one of them will be a 330uf replace all 3 caps ,let me do some more checking these sets can be a pain in the neck to fix sometimes,and heres another idea if you are sure problem is only in the deflection board then it may be cheaper to replace board call UED 1-800-648-6657

  • ladywinn
    ladywinn Dec 10, 2008

    wrong cap other cap will be either 220uf 35 v or 330uf 35v, some deflection boards have 2- 220uf 35v then others will have 1-220uf 35v and1- 330uf 35v these are values to chage 2200uf 16v ,220uf 35v, 330uf 35v.

    You have to keep in mind RCA made 26 different deflection board ,24 different SSB they all look alike and close enough boards but have alot of different connectors on boards so on each board cp numbers very. You still havent said how is the repair on your set ? Are you still trying to fix it yourself?

52" rca hdtv monitor power flashes 3 times after pushing it and tv does not turn on.


Thanks for using FixYa. On the Deflection board there are 3 capacitors CP 114, 120 and 150. 3 blinks occur if any of them is puffed up on top. To resolve this issue you'll have to replace all the 3 capacitors CP150 2200UF 16, other 2 are 220UF 35v they will be green with gold writing on them. Also re solder all pins on Fly Back Transformer (FBT). Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Replaced cp150 @cp114 plus flyback. tv runs great but not full screen.


Thanks for using FixYa. On the Deflection board there are 3 capacitors CP 114, 120 and 150. If you have already replaced two of them then replace CP 120: 330UF/35V/HF and post back if that makes any difference.
Thanks Rylee

Power light flashes 3 times then nothing

this sounds like the typical bad fly-back transformer that is also known as the high voltage transformer, n=-Not really a repair for a novice so unless you know all of the safety notices with this set please do not attempt this repair as why save 100 bucks for something that could seriously kill you!!!!!
