Question about GE D52GW12 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

GE 52" will not power up - green light flashes 3 times

We are experiencing the same issue as many of the others here. Our GE 52" rear projection television started having problems powering up about a month ago - the green light would come on and then off three times; after a few cycles of this the tv would power up. It seemed to get worse each time we turned the tv off, so we started leaving it on. Last weekend we turned it off overnight and now it refuses to come on at all. The green light comes on for a few seconds and there is a click/squeal sound like the tv is trying to power up; then the light goes off. After about 10-20 seconds this repeats, and again one more time. I would like to know if this tv can be fixed and if it is worth fixing! Thanks all -

    I have the same problem with the light blinking. I also have ordered the caps and was wondering am I going to be able to see where they go and how to do it?

    will the instructions come with the capacitors, or do they need to be ordered seperately?

Replace CP150 and CP114 and CP120/ You can get the caps with instructions at the following link. They do have a minimum order amount of 10.00 so you may need to order an extra capacitor to total 10.00 but shipping is free. The parts are listed under the RCA parts category,

ON our GE D52GW12 52" AFTER TURNING TV ON IT


Try resoldering the flyback transformers connections on the board. Its very common for the flyback pins to develope cracks around the pins which can cause that issue. I would check that first with that model.

I have a RCA D52W17 rear projection T.V. When I turned the power on the green light flashed 3 times then shut off and now it won't go on at all.


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. 3 blinks in your RCA D52W17 rear projection are caused due to 3 capacitors (CP114, 120 and 150) which are located on the deflection board. If any of these capacitors goes bad you’ll have to replace them with the exact same ones. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Tv green light flashes on and off 3 times. Never comes on.


Three blinks - B+ over voltage protection (OVP), unit goes to the standby mode then displays the 3 blink fault. This is also a problem in the power supply circuit, check T603 and R672.
check the components as given above and if necessary replace the components to solve the issue.
This will help. Thanks .please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya.
