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

Power light flashing three times. when came on screen was distort

Like some others, the power light would flash 3 times and the tv would turn off. At each flash there was a clicking sound from the back/inside the tv. At first it would eventually come on. When it did finally come on, there was obvious power fluctuations, because there were visible distortions in the picture. There were horizontal red lines on a black/gray screen. There was also almost a warping of the picture. Each time it would take more tries to get tv to turn on. Finally quit altogether. Please help me!!! Miss my big screen!!

    Found out that you have to do an autoconvergence on every in put channel(i.e. dvi, composite, component). Its still trying to go out of alignment, tho. The picture from my dvd, coming through dvi at 1080i is awesome. But, my directtv feed coming thru the composite inputs is horrible. Everything is blurry, especially on the menu/channel screens. Am also having power fluctuations or something. Its like a shimmering effect.

    looking in from the back it is the large bard on the far left side. Thats the deflection board the flyback is the large transormer with the large red wire comin out of the top the CP150 is lso locted on that board. The board is alittle to involved to explain the removal proceedure in this forum as you woud need several pages of instructions and photos to remove it correctly. If you send a request to the link I posted they have detailed instructions on how to remove tht board and they would most likely email it to you.

    Adjust the focus controls they are located up front behind the speaker panel and the inner access panel. There are 3 buttons for the screen controls and 3 additional buttons for the focus of each of the three CRTs.

BLINKING RED LIGHT IS ERROR CODE.

1. Unplug set for a few minutes.

2. Plug back in and turn on.

3. When red power light starts blinking--COUNT THE BLINKS.

4. THREE BLINKS, pause, THREE BLINKS (ETC) IS SHORT PROTECTION AND A DO IT YOURSELF repair for some people. I have complete instructions for this repair.

5. 5 blinks, pause and 5 blinks etc is short on 140 volt line and while not as easy as 3 blink error code it points to places to look at.


If this told you something you did not know, rate this solution as very helpful as I do this here for free.

Post a comment here when you know what error code is and I will help.

The self-diagnostic function of the projection TV will cause the STANDBY light to blink or flash when the television detects an issue. The number of times the STANDBY light flashes corresponds to a specific issue. As per the two examples below, some of the issues may be resolved without the need for service.
  • If the STANDBY light flashes three times in sequence, the lamp cover is not securely attached. Reattach the lamp cover to resolve this issue.
  • If the STANDBY light flashes four times in sequence, the TV may be overheating. To resolve this issue, ensure that the back of the TV is well ventilated.
If the flash sequence is not listed above or the light continues to flash, follow the steps below to perform a power reset:
  1. Turn off the television. IMPORTANT: For a projection TV that uses an internal lamp, wait 5 minutes after turning off the TV to allow the lamp to cool before continuing with the following steps.
  2. Unplug the TV power cord from the electrical outlet.
  3. Let the TV remain without power for 60 seconds.
  4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. NOTE: If the TV is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the TV.
  5. Turn on the television. NOTE: If the TV does not turn on immediately, the fan may need to finish its cycle. This is part of the cooling process for some projection TVs and is normal operation. After the fan turns off, attempt to turn the TV on again.
If the issue is still unresolved after following all of the troubleshooting steps, service may be required . Please note the number of times the STANDBY light flashes and relay that information to the service center.

Blue ghosting all over the screen TV screen stays dark blue whether turned on or off. Indicator light keeps flashing green when TV turned on.


The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer2_bing.gif Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2
Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

You can see some more examples and find a fix herebb0cf99.png http://www.fixya.com/support/r2861467-solution_video_looking_whiteish_dull

HELP NEEDED!


need to know the model number as I have access to many different screen assemblies and also the 3 flashes is most likely a diagnostic code, so if you post the model number I will be able to help you out with both problems.

Here's something that might also be useful. After you turn on the set, and get the regular red blinky lights, hold down the Device and Menu buttons together for about 5 seconds.
The Power light will start to flash in a two digit sequence.
For example, 3 flashes, then 7 flashes = 37.

Here are the error codes, and the corresponding problem:
12 = No error detected, check power supply.
32 = Lamp Cover is open.
33 = Air filter cover is open.
34 = Lamp abnormality
36 = Light Engine (DMD or Lamp Fan stopped)
37 = Exhaust or Lamp Ballast Fan stopped
38 = Lamp Temperature High
39 = DMD Temperature High
41 = Short is detected
44 = DVI cable between FMT and Engine disconnected
