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

1 Answer

I have a d52w23 rca less than three years old

I have only used the set for about half of the time ive had it..when i turn on the set the power light comes on, then i hear a sizzle, smell some burning and an arc occurs on the back right hand side of the set, angle is while facing the screen. over the phone repairman says it may be the "transformer". rca's parts list does not list a "transformer". what is this and could this be the problem?

Sounds like what is know as the flyback. also known as the ihvt and yes this is a transformer. to get the correct part for rca you have to get the model extension number this will be like d52w23yx1 or yx2 or something like that. generally when we replace the flyback. we check the horizontal output because it is most likely shorted

Replace a projection bulb on a RCA D52W23?


Hi,
I have this tv.
pull it out and start undoing the screws towards the bottom half of the tv around the back, get the speaker grille off and then in there is your access cover for your bulbs. theres three of them red blue green. the bulb assemblies and circuit boards are integrated 3 bulbs -three separate assemblies. you will probably have to turn the tv back on when its disassembled to see which bulb went.

My RCA D52W23 won't turn on


The set is in shut down mode due to a fault detected in power supply/vertical or horizontal deflection circuits.
The common problems with this model that will cause the symptom you describe are bad power supply capacitors, bad flyback, bad HV cap in horizontal output circuit and cold solders especially under flyback area.
These are only the most common problems and it could be any number of other faults.
If you have electronic (TV) repair experience check the items mentioned, otherwise it's best to seek a qualified RCA tech for an estimate/service call.

My RCA d52w23 will not turn on. upon turning power on (either by front button or remote) the green light comes on 3 times and makes a mousey squeek. please help!!!!


there can be a few things that can cause this problem
take the back off and on the board on the left side look at the caps there ae 4 of interest three are radial pc mount and stand up the tops may look puffed up those will need to be replaced
locations i think are c140 c120 c114
the check solder ar the .082 200 box cap in the base circuit of the horizontal output transistor
that will most likely take care of your problem

Tv turns on w/pic then pic dissapears light blinks 4 times


I have the same issue, we've had to change our bulb three times in less than two years. now we have 61" expensive paper weight. Our current bulb is less than 6 months old. The TV is only 2 years old and like i said this is our third bulb.

the blue light blinks 4 times. you get sound. then a few minutes the the picture returns... then it goes out, and the cycle goes on.

A solution to this would be greatly appreciated.

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.

Blinking power button


Blinking power light is usually due to bad capacitors on the power supply. See the tip for RCA atc336 under my profile that can apply to your set as well.
