Won't turn on

Rca d56w20 56 in. rear projection tvWe just bought this tv from a friend. They delivered it and after a couple hours we plugged it in and it never came on. All we have ever gotten was a green flashing light or nothing. At first it would flash in a series of 3 blinks. then after awhile we tried again and it was 9 blinks. And now we try it and the green light comes on maybe 30secs and then shuts off.

Id be calling the friend asking for a refund...what you have going on is pretty common but did you see it work prior to buying it or just take their word for it? you may have a bad flyback or transformer but it shouldnt be bad so soon after you happened to buy the tv and no it would not have gone bad from moving the tv

    it sounds like the transformer may be bad on it.as i stated id take it back to the friend and ask them for the money back since the tv isnt working as its supposed to.if the transformer is bad it wont allow the set to turn on at all other than flashing lights on the front. thats about all i can tell you other than to have a service man come out and fix it for you

Tv won't turn on. It turned off after a few minutes and won't turn back on. We opened it up and replaced the fuse.Didn't change anything. A friend said that it just seems to not be getting any...


does the power light flash three times slowly then stay off? If so chances are its just the CP150, cp120 and CP114 capacitors. There is the RCA repair kit by that same name available from www.tvrepairworld.com which has the capacitors and the CD with repair instructions

What kind of heat issue would my 56 inch projection tv have if after a couple hours shut off and on then then turns off . fuse, power supply . not sure


Sounds like it's possibly your convergence IC's overheating. On some projection tv's, after time, the solder joints on the IC's weaken from the heat and cause them to turn off the tv for it's own protection.

What is this?


Likely to have a bad high voltage transformer: white square thing with large red wire coming out and possible horizontal output transistor maybe C5148: on metal heat sink behind transformer. Must use original transformer Average cost $300.00 according to which repairman. Be sure picture was good before it went out!

If its a rear projection TV. It sounds like the Lamp is shot on the projector, or is going. Look in the back and see if it is lit if it is flickering I would definitely suggest replacing it. If that doesnt repair it then I would ultimately suggest the optical engine which is the projector of the TV
