After reading several posts w/ similar problem, it sounds like it could be a processor shutdown or I need a flyback transformer, but would like a guru's opinion! I have a 52" RCA D52W23 and it just turned off after about 10-15 min of being on, the power button constantly flashes green, I unplugged it, then plugged it back in, only stayed on for 10-15 min again. Power button still constantly flashes and won't come back on. Should I have a repairman look at it or would it be an easy fix? I don't want to pay for parts and it not be the problem. (my husband is pretty handy)

Re: RCA 52" shut off, green light flashing constantly
I think you should call a repairman in since he will be better at telling you for sure what the problem is and getting it fixed.you dont want or need alot of guesswork and even the gurus cant tell you for sure what the problem is.

The set is going into processor shutdown. the processor has detected a condition which may be a danger and has shut the set down. Most of the time it is of the high voltage nature. Technicians have a special computer interface that reads the error codes much like that of a car. The first thing i would suggest is unplug the set for 1 hour and try again. I say this but i never have heard of this working. The one thing you can assume is that \its not the main fuse. the processor is getting power and the light is flashing. these set you have to be carefull with 80 percent of the time there not worth fixing.
Intermitant problem idicates eather a component finally failing maybe overheating or a bad connection somewhere. IS the unit compltely dead now... NO green light flashing. or on no sounds clicks or smells. The rca ITC222 is known for shutdown. THe processor "sees" any problem at all it will shut it down for safety. You did what u first do that is unplug it and try again. Now the troubleshooting begins. Technicians have computer test equipment that can read errors from the processor. SO what is it doing now.
the set is in safety shutdown. When the processer detectecs a problem it shuts it down. This is where the troubleshooting begins. First uplug the set for 30 min then plug back up. I dont think i have ever seen this work but it where to start. THe fact that u got a flashing lightn means the main fuse is still good. a tchnician can read error codes that the processor has generated to help troubleshoot it. unless your a tech this is most of what u can do.
OK first thing.. its not the fuses. if the green light flashes this is an idication that the processor is receiving power, This is a shutdown unit,, If the set has any problems .. i think thers about 25 different reason the set will shut down. for safety Technicians have special computer equipment to read errors from the processor. COmmon sollutions include first shut set down and uplug for about 30 min then try again..( i dont think i have ever seen this work) THis is where the troubleshooting begins. Problems on this unit start with shorted horizontal transistors. that the first thing techs check.
Flyback is just one of many problems that may cause the rca itc22 chasis to shutdown. the fact that the green light flashes idicates that your processor is recieving power and that the processor is seeing a problem. DId you chech the horizontal output transitor. when u replace flybacks thats the first thing u check. there is a number of items that can shut it down. Technicians have special tools that can read the processor and find the errors that shut it down. the main board can cause problems also it the data becomes corrupt.
if the green light never comes on. that is is if you unplug the set and wait 30 min before plugging back up. and then the green light never comes on..you have a power issue. the processor never receives power. if it comes on then goes out you have a shutdown issue. the processor detects a condition which it need to shut down the set due to a saftey issue. The processor generates a error log. which can be read by a technician and a computer. it can be one of about 30 different problems. so it would be best to troubleshoot this further.
the blinking light indicate the compter processor has shut the set down. this could be one of many reasons.. is their any sounds. from speakers or back of set?...uplug the set and wait 10 min and plug back up .. any change?
Sound? audio from station.. or noise this set is going into shutdown. the processor is seeing a problem with its safety cuircits and shutdown the set it will try to restart the set 3 times and then lock it down. it can be many things. the processor has an error log.. technician can get in and read codes.
blinking light indcate a processor shutdown.. the processor has detected a problem in safety circuits and shut down the set. common problem are flyback and horizotal ouptut transistor. the processor has a error log file. technicians can plug a specail computer and read those to determine problem
