Question about RCA HD52W56 52" Rear Projection HDTV

2 Answers

Tv turns on, then turns off, does this 3 times

My tv, when i press the power button on the tv front panel, or on the remote, will turn on for a second, turn off, turn back on, turn off, turn back on, and then turn off again. All of which happens with a 10 second period. Now I have no tv repair experience, so I wouldnt even know how to fix the problem once its been pointed out. But if I knew what the problem was, then I can very easily call around and ask how much it would cost to get that problem fixed. So if anyone knows what could be wrong, please please please please, let me know. Thank you

Its nothing to do with the remote, as the tv wont even turn on by the power button on the front panel access, I appreciate the thought of you trying to help! Also my cable remote is not programed with the tv, we have no reason to us it for the tv, as we programed it for our surround sound system, so we control the volume for it.

Check for the proper code for the remote. I presume you have either a cable or satelite box and you have set the remote according to the manual. I have had a similar problem with a flat screen LCD television from COSTCO and the remote control would set the "sleep" control at random. We would be in the middle of a program and zap. I had them replace 3 units, talked to the manufacturer and they said they were awaiting the proper codes from China. Bought a name brand TV from Future Shop....no problems since then. Same Satelite unit and remote. DGT

I have the radion shack hdtv remote. Cat no


Download the manual and codes from here

http://www.remotecentral.com/cgi-bin/files/dl.cgi?file=others/radio_shack/15135-manual.zip&area=other

Here is how to set the code...

1. Turn TV on
2. Press TV button on remote
3. Hold P button on remote until LED blinks twice
4. Enter the first 5 digit code for Magnavox TV's
5. Press Power button - TV should turn off. If TV doesn't turn off repeat steps 2-5 with the next 5 digit code, until either TV goes off or run out of codes.
6. If out of codes use searching for code method below...

TV codes for Magnavox

10047, 11454, 10054, 10154, 10000, 10250, 10051, 10180, 10060, 10030, 10171, 10092, 10706, 11913, 11904, 11755, 10019, 11365, 11254, 10802, 10386, 10282, 10020, 10187, 10186, 10024, 10179, 10096

Searching for code

1. Turn on TV.
2. Press TV button on remote
3. Press and hold P button until LED blinks twice
4. Enter code 991 on remote - LED blinks twice
5. Press 1 - Device key blinks twice
6. Press Power button once
7. Press and release CH+ key until TV turns off.

At this point in the manual, the manual is only correct depending on what type of TV you have.

In the manual if you press the Power on button the TV should turn itself back on, the fail to state that not all TV's turn on by the power button, the majority now are triggered to turn on, on channel change, however you can't use channel change here to check it as you'll go to the next code... here is my solution...

8. Turn TV back on either using original TV remote, or buttons on front (most TV's if you change channels they come back out of standby mode, very few now turn on by pressing the power button).

9. Press Power button on remote - TV should turn itself off again.
10. Press P button on remote to lock in that code.

If the device does not turn off press CH- to go back through the codes, press and release P button when TV turns off.

Finding code

If you used the search function you might want to know what code it's using. To do this follow these instructions...

1. Press TV button
2. Press and hold P until LED blinks twice
3. Enter 990 and LED blinks twice
4. Press 1 and count number of times LED blinks this is the first digit of your code (e.g. 1 blink = 1, 2 blinks = 2, etc).
5. Repeat step 4 pressing buttons 2 - 5 for the other digits (e.g. for the second digit press 2 count number of blinks.. etc)

At this point the manual doesn't tell you how to get out of this mode, I presume pressing any other button on the remote other than 1-5 will take you out of this mode, either that or leaving the remote alone for 5 minutes.
