Our RCA 52 inch when turned on with remote/or on the unit, lights (green light on tv) up three times and then stops. TV won't come on. Any ideas? Is it costly to repair?

I had this exact problem with one exception for about two months. I kept pushing the on/off button manually. TV stayed on after about 10 trys. This is how I turned my set on each day. This set didn't
cost that much, and anything over $100.00 to repair it is stupid.

My solution

I had my set plugged into a circuit protector bar. I just now unplugged my set and plugged

it in to the back side of my cable box. I then pushed the on/off button on the set severl times

with the cable box on, till the tv came on. The tv now comes on every time I turn on the cable

box. No repair needed. Just a bad on/off switch, but why replace it. Rick

This was happening to us also~We found a solution with help from this site. We replace the CP150 capacitor which was bad. We replaced it with a 25v (it is normaly only a 16v 2200 uf). It helped but was not the whole problem. We also had a cold soder joint on a capacitor in the main power supply (the board with the two large capacitors and two transformers, they are tucked far back). This is the borad where the ac cord is connected. Hope this helps.

GOOD LUCK!!!

    HERE IS THE LINK THAT HELPED US WITH PART OF THE PROBLEM (replacing the CP150 capacitor)~(THANKS CHAD_FEASTER!!!)

    Just fixed it!!! Remove the back panel from the television, you will see a board where the input jacks are located. To the left you will notice a red power wire. Just up and to the right approx 7" or so you will see a [_] shaped metal shield surrounding a capacitor in the middle of it. The part # on the board is CP150. It is a green/gold 16v 2200uF capacitor. More than likely this capacitor is faulty. Run your finger over the top of the capacitor, if it is beveled rather than smooth you have a definite solution to your problem. You may need to remove the plastic piece that covers the transformer to the left of the capacitor to gain easy access. Good luck!!

Please post the model number of your RCA as usually its a bad flyback and start up capacitor when you get a 3 blink error code . But I can help you better if I have the model number of your set.

Sounds like the capicator on the high voltage is swelled,removing the back cover,make sure to unplug the unit first,there is a u shaped heat sink about middle ways of the board,inside that heat sink is a cap,it will be swelled on top of it,its a 2200 35v cap.
