Question about RCA L42WD250 42 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

RCA L42WD250 42 in. will not turn on

After having the set for six months I moved it to another location. I went to plug it back in and the front light is green. When I hit the power button on top the screen flashes once and nothing happens. The flashing light is now red. I have no controls or buttons. I can't find my service book that I got with the LCD to find problems. RCA help is worthless. Any idea what is going on? or where to go for help.

Try unplugging it for 30 mins. If it still has the problem, it may have when into protection mode.
When this happens, a part in the TV when bad. The protection mode keeps the TV from staying on to prevent further damage.
At this point, I would use the warranty on the TV. Being that it's only 6 months old.

RCA led tv won't turn on


Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis.
http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced. To some models of sets, all these section circuit will be integrated at its main board. If this is the case, you have to replace the main board.

RCA Model: RLC3257B just stopped working


I had the same exact problem. The tv had not worked in months. I tested the capacitors by slightly charging them with an ohmmeter and they all tested fine. When I plugged the tv back in, it began working perfectly. It turns out it had been plugged into an outlet that was poorly grounded. I am not sure why the charging of the capacitors rectified the problem but its a cheap fix

We have a Westinghouse flatscreen, three years old that has been acting oddly for more than six months. First the picture would roll through the channels for no reason and stop at any channel and be good...


think that their might be a loosed connection. Try to remove the back cover of your tv but be sure to unplug it, remember the location of each screw. then you will see a connectors try to press or unplug then plug it, be sure to return the connectors in their respective slots. then try look the pcb board the solder side try to observe if their is a weak solder, then if see something try to resolder it but be sure not to connect the separated pins to avoid short circuit to the unit.

No picture or sound just six red blinking lights


Use your warranty in a hurry before it expires. Your TV when into protection mode to prevent further damage. Most TVs have a 1 year warranty. Good Luck.

Trutech tv model #PLV16260


Heres what mine did:no picture no sound, when i hit the remote the indicator light went out....piece of crap is six months old, cant find any info on it, cant get a hold of anyone at Trutech.
So i took it apart, on the board that the power cord is attached to, i found six blown capacitors. There is also a big ass one in the middle of that board which looked ok but blew out the bottom.I replaced them, and im watching it as i type.
Its fairly easy but if your not comfortable soldering on a cheap circuit board, take it to someone.
I hope it helps, i think this repair will fix the other Trutech models with the same problems.

No picture, no status light


This isn't a permanent solution, but it has worked for me. The first time I found out about this solution was when the status light went out on my Tatung. I just left it unplugged and didn't plugged it back in for about a month and a half just to see what it would do. When the status light came back on, I knew if it ever did it again, I could try the same thing. Well, a week ago last Sunday, the status light went out again, so I just kept track of when it went out and when I plugged the power cord back in to see if the status light would come back on. Today when I plugged the power cord in, the status light came back on. That was 9 days. I don't know if it could be less than that because the last time I plugged it back in to see if the status light would come on was around last Friday. So it might have worked sooner. Anyway, this seems to work for me. I don't know what is causing it to lose power in the first place, but at least I know what to do.
