Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

RCA Model D52W26 - when we press the power button, the green light comes on but then it turns off again in a few seconds without the screen ever coming on.

The tv is about 4 - 5 years old and we never had a problem with it before....a friend said it sounds like it could be the starter and they are very costly to repair on these tv's

This set is prone to a lot of problems, most of which the average person will not be able to fix---most common is problems in or around the high voltage transformer but it is not a well made set.

either consider having a technician look at it or do retire it and get a new set. In case you look inside here is a photo of a typical High voltage transformer.

when the processor on the set detects a problem it will shut the set down for safety. it could be many things. technicians have a device that can read the errors that the processor has detected.

These TVs are RCA biggest mistake ,all most all of these models are shutting down accoding to information you just sneeze and they shut down, Id say try soldering around flyback transformer solder all pins.also they have trouble with ribbon connectors as well as the ribbions.

Almost certainly the green picture tube is shorted. This is a very expensive repair; probably not worth doing.

Hello,

The issue you describe is consistent with a power supply board issue. This is the board where the AC goes to.

I do not think it needs replacement, rather some defective capacitors are causing this issue.
Open unit up and take a look at the power supply board.You will probably see one or more electrolytic filter capacitors that are bulged up in the top-not perfectly flat like the others.

The value of these capacitors will be different, most likely they will be somewhere around-820 to 2200uF/25 V( or /10V sometimes)

You can replace them with same values but I would recommend the voltage rating to be higher(like 35V for an original 25V) for reliability purposes.

What happens is,these bulged top capacitors will cause a low and unfiltered DC voltage=main board will malfunction(the relay will keep clicking until the caps are holding enough charge to bring the voltage up over a threshold point).

You can buy these capacitors at any Fry's or Radioshack store or you can order them online at vendors like "mcmelectronics.com"(look for electrolytic capacitors).
After replacing these capacitor(capacitors) most likely the normal operation will be restored.

Note: There may be also some other causes for this symptom ,like a defective T con board ,or main board,but the bulged top capacitors are the most common cause for this issue.

If you don't know about TV repairers, take the TV to the nearest repairman to fix the fault for you. Also, note that TV stores a lot of current, so wait a while before opening the TV back cover.

I hope this helps.

Good luck.

Our CAL232 TV will not turn on. When pressing the power button, you can see a red light and a green light, but the screen doesn't start up as normal. The TV then tries again after about 20 seconds, but...


Hello,

My LOEWE CAL 232 will not power up. When the power button is pressed, the monitor turns on, with the LOEWE on the monitor, then the TV continues with the previous activity (antenna, DVD, VCR etc.). Now all that happens is

1. the red light comes on

2.after about 1 second the green light turns on for about 12 seconds

3. the the green light turns off for about 1 second

4. then the green light turns on again for about 12 seconds

and this continues until the power button is pressed to turn the TV off. During this time, the monitor does not turn on and the only sound I hear seems to eminate from the power button.

Any thoughts?

My rca 52 in projection t.v has problems powering up


Push and hold power button. If it cycles and blinks on/off in 3s or 9 times, it is a power problem. Replace the deflection board. Cost about 250.00

Need solution


Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Your concern with an RCA D52W26 is when you attempt to turn it on, it powers up as indicated by the LED lights but they then power OFF a few seconds later? or it powers on then you get to see bright line(s) left to right, then the TV powers OFF? or it powers on but only bklinking LED lights? If yes on the last any sequence to the flashing/blinking?

Hope that this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
