Question about RCA HD52W56 52" Rear Projection HDTV

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

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

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.

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

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 problems since then. Same Satelite unit and remote. DGT

Tv will not power up

Press the TV button or ON/OFF button while remote is in TV mode and there's a source of power to the outlet or outlet strip.

Make sure the TV is plugged in.

You might have tried to turn on the TV during the lamp cool-down. Wait a few moments and the picture will appear.

Has the power light on the front of the TV been blinking for one minute? If so, the lamp may be dead. Refer to the Power indicator
is blinking or flashing section below for more information.

When you first plug your TV into an outlet, the Power indicator on the front panel will light and blink for approximately 30 seconds
and then go off during the initialization of the TV. This happens only when the TV is unplugged and plugged back in. The TV can
only be turned on after the Power indicator goes off.

Check the wall receptacle (or extension cord) to make sure it is "live" by plugging in something else, such as a lamp.

Something might be wrong with your remote control. Press the POWER button on the front of the TV. If the TV turns on, check the
remote control solutions on page 53.

Multiple TV Setup might be set to the wrong option. Press MENU/OK on the front panel. Select Setup Options, then Advanced
Options, then Multiple TV Setup. Choose TV (default).

When I turn on the tv all i get is the welcome screen, and it will not go any futher,there is green light flashing in front of the tv. and it will not turn off with the remote, i have to unplug it.

Hi Andre,

May I know if the LED light at the front panel has a pattern of flashes or flashing continuously in green color.

Please check if you can access the "Self diagnostic screen" by following the steps below.
- To activate, press the front panel "Activity" and "Channel down" buttons at the same time and hold for 5 secs. The Status led will then flash a two digit code. Example, if the error code is "23" the led light flashes 2 times(blink, blink) pause and then flash 3 times(blink, blink, blink). Let me know the error code to narrow down, it will help to diagnose where the fault came from.
Note : the TV must be in shutdown not switched off, or AC power cord is removed because the code will reset to "12" means no error. Use the front panel buttons not on the remote control. If you can't access the self diagnostic, press and hold the "Activity" button on the front panel for 5 secs before entering the "self diagnostic" code.

Big Blur when i turn the tv on


First of all please check the following things:

Press the TV button. Make sure the TV is plugged in. Check the wall receptacle (or extension cord) to make sure it is “live” by plugging in something else. Something might be wrong with your remote control. Press the POWER button on the front of the TV. If the TV turns on, check the remote control solutions. The front panel controls may be locked (disabled). Use the remote control to unlock the front panel controls by selecting the Front Panel Block in the Parental Control menu and press OK to uncheck the box. The TV might be performing a periodic diagnostic check. Wait for a few minutes for the TV to turn on.

If still the problem persists then check the following:

Maybe the cable/air function is set to the wrong position. The channel might be blank — change channels. If you’re watching your VCR and it’s connected with coaxial cable to the CABLE/ANTENNA jack, tune the TV to channel 3 or 4 (whichever channel is selected on the 3/4 switch on the back of your VCR). Also check to make sure the TV/VCR button on the VCR is in the correct mode (press the TV/VCR button on your VCR). Check antenna connections. Make sure all of the cables are firmly connected to the jacks. Try adjusting sharpness function to improve weak signals. Closed-captioning might be on. Check Closed Caption in the Setup menu.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Philips Projection tv will not turn on

Not trying to offend you here at all, but ....
1. Plug something else into the same outlet and verify that the outlet works.
2. Look at the power cord for any damage like wear and tear near either end of the cord.
3. Once its plugged in see if you can turn it on using the power button on the front panel (not the remote)
4. If it came on using the power button then there is not a problem with the TV.
5. If it did not come on then Sorry I can't help.
6. If it did come on then make sure the "tv" button near the top of the remote (assuming its the original remote) was pressed before pressing the power button on the remote.
