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

2 Answers

Tood my D52W20 to Repair man and he said not worth fixing.

We paid a lot of money for this tv. The light comes on 3x and then shuts off. We have tried the blow dryer and took it to the repair man to fix the deflection board. He says it is not that and that it is the other board and not worth fixing. Any ideas out there I don't want to throw $2000. down the drain.

    Are you sure this is the right flyback. On the website our model is not listed.

  • shafferl16 Mar 06, 2009

    Have you worked on this type of tv? I don't mind buying the parts but am afraid that it may still not work. If you are confident that is what it is then we will try it. Thanks, for all your help.

    Does the Flyback cause the CP150 to go bad or vice versa? and would this problem caus ethe BP 010 plug to arc when plugged back in?

  • shafferl16 Mar 16, 2009

    I am not sure. I only know that when we turn it on it blinks 3 times and then goes off. The CP160 is not puffed up. We have tried the blow dryer trick but have not replaced these two parts yet. $ is an issue. We don't want to waste it on something if we cannot fix it. We need someone who knows what they are doing and the tv repair people around here don't.

    that is what mine is doing also!

  • junkbike May 11, 2010

    would this problem also cause the BP010 plug to arc when plugged back in?

This just happened to me. I heard a popping and then it turned off. I turned it back on and it blinked 3 times and shut off


I took the front cover off. I noticed the circuit board under the middle tube was popping. Turned out to be leaking tube coolant. I cleaned the board with circuit board spray and then located the bad resistor. If you turn the tv on it will spark the bad resistor. Just borrow a soldering gun and solder the connection real good, until spark goes away. Took me 5 minutes and I know nothing about electronics. Works perfect now.

The repair man doesnt know RCA 's very well. The 3 x then out power led is the classic sign of the flyback and cp150 needing to be replaced. You need the flyback # 259296 and the CP150 you can get the flyback and cp150 at the following link with free step by step instructions with pictures on how to do the repair. Its very easy. Heres the link.

    Yes I have worked on both the RCA and GE TC222 chassis which is what yor model is and 99.9% of the time chaging those two items will repair the set.

    98% of the ITC222 chassis that have the 3 blink error can be attributed to the Flyback and CP150 needing replacement

The monitor will not come on and there is a periodic klicking sound coming from within. Worth fixing?

In my opinion, it won't be worth fixing, which is to say it will cost more than it is worth. You can buy a much higher spec camera than this one very cheaply now. It is always hard to abandon an item that once cost a lot of money, but you have to compare the cost of repair to today's camera prices, not to what you once paid. Used examples of this camera are selling for $40 on Amazon, if you really like the camera and want to replace it.

Philips 42PF9630A 42 in

Wow that is a lot of money in any currency. Coming from England its not uncommon to be paying £200+ to repair a tv like yours. If you could give a little more information then maybe I could narrow it down for you. You say its gone black but does your standby light still come on? If you try to turn it on with the remote control does the stanby light flash quickly then re-appear? Or does it come out of standby and have a black screen? Can youm get sound through a dvd player but no picture? If you can answer these questions who knows maybe he will do it cheaper if you supply the part yourself!!! Dont think he will but worth a try :-) please post again.
