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

3 Answers

Rca d52w20 I also had the power light flashing 3 times and then shutting off. Got progressively worse, and now it wont come at all(still flashes). There was also the clicking/snapping sound with each flash. When it did come on , there were horizontal red lines on black/gray screens. Just figured power fluctuations. When it was still working it also had distortions. A little warped on the corners. Like I said, at first it would come on after a few tries. Then 10. Then 20. And so on. When it finally got up to about 50 tries to come on is when it quit.

    it also seemed to start shortly after hooking up a new panasonic dvd/vcr combo. model #DMR-ez47v. Hooked up the hdmi cable. dont know if that had anything to do with it, tho.

    Changed out the flyback, and the cp 150, cp120, and cp114 capacitors. Tv is working and staying on now. But, obviously I had somethinbg going wrong before. Picture is a little blurry. Ran the auto convergence, and it worked. The crosses were even lined up. But there is a little of red of line on the left side. Especially on the bottom left. It seems to be doing this when the feed is coming thru the dvi/hdmi line from my dvd/vcr. Are my lamps going?? Or is it something wrong in the dvi circuitry??

I believe it is a diode located shortly after the transformer that had went bad, possibly due to the power surges..

I would say the power supply is not working. May be something as simple as a fuse. To check the fuses, a person must always to first, unplug the set from the wall. Then take the screws/1/4" nuts from the bottom back panel of the set. You should be able to take a flashlight and observe any bad fuses, or better yet, if you have a continunity checker ( vom/dvm ) use that to check each fuse. There are usally more than one in a big screen. Good luck. I hope this has helped.

RCA rear projecton model number D52W20


the rca itc222 will shut down for any of 25 different reason. the fact that u see a flashing light lets u know one thing it is not the main fuse. the most common reasons for shut down involve high voltage parts. In the shop we have a computer interface that let us diagnose much like error codes in a car. the d52w20 is a old version of the tic222 and average repair at my shop is 250 to 400 and if its the tubes then it wont be worth fixing. tubes run 250 apeacie and by the time labor is put in that can run as high as 1000. I SEE ALOT of these at shop. How are you with electronics. rember this set can hold a charge and can be dagerous

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.

Green light flashes


Same thing here....RCA tells me to count the times the light flashes as it apparently is set to "tell" you what the problem is.......3 to 5 flashes means your lamp is messed up.....they are over $300 to replace!
