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

1 Answer

RCA green light clicks three times but no power or picture

I replaced the flyback already but have the same problem. I am going to replace the 16v 2200uf cap, I noticed that it is beveled on the top so im hoping this will fix the problem. I will let you guys know if it works.

    I was unable to find a 2200uf 16v cap so i was forced to use a 2200uf 35v cap. I replaced the part and now the tv turns on but the convergence is out of wack. Does anyone know if the cap could be causing this problem because it was not a 16v? or does anyone know what else I might need to look at? Thanks,

    RCA d52w20-

    I read on a simular thread that this could possably be the flyback. I had a brand new flyback for this tv already so I put it on. It still has the same convergence issue. The only thing I can think of now is that I need to replace the 2200uf cap to the 16V instead of the 35V ....or replace the FL231 fuse next to the flyback... If anyone can lead me in the right direction on what I might need to do to fix this convergence issue, it would be appriciated. Thank you!

    call the manufacturer

    give the model number of tv

    the location number of the part you need e.g Q14401 or Q502 -

    the location number is written on the circuit board

    the horizontal output transistor could be 2sd2539 or 2sc5148

    the transistor is black with 3 pins. it is next to the flyback

Won't power on

my d52w19 chassis itc222 as posted most of the time wont turn on and the green light flashes three times every time it makes a small noise. sometimes it does turn on and you hear a little pop and the tv fires up.  latley there is a really high pitch noise that will slightly change pitch if you move the tv or put slight pressure on the top or botttom rear part of the chassis. thanks for the help as I have seen that this has been posted before without mention of the high pitch noise.
