Question about RCA D52W20 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
It is a RCA d52W20 52 inch projection screen tv. when turning on green light on the front panel lights up for few seconds and goes back off it does this 3 times then you have to wait a while before trying it again it takes several times before the tv will cut on.

I pulled mine out to check to see if it was bad because it was reading odd like a shored EC, and it checked out fine. After re-soldering it back in, my set worked fine!

I would say just re-solder that and you should be good to go!!
It this does not work for you let me know, I have much more information.
