Question about RCA D52W20 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
My RCA will not power up. If you turn on with either remote or by hand, the green light comes on for a few seconds then goes off again. No picture at all. For the last month or so, it has been going off by itself occasionallly also. That was usually about 5 or 10 minutes after turning it on. Then if I waited a few minutes, I could turn it back on.
LoL!!! I don't know why but all RCA's have Flyback Transformer problems! I have one to here is the part number 259296 if you look around you can buy it for about 15.00 if you know how to solder you can do it your self and save big time! Hey I'm doing it! I don't see paying $500.00 to fix it you could buy a new one. And they are just ripping people off because the parts aren't really that high to fix the flashing light problem. And the part is never on back order so your getting screwed they are probably wanting you to finally say just throw it away. And than they'll fix it for $15.00 and sell it for $600.00 Anyways for the people that are having the same problem go here to buy the Flyback Transformer for the D52W20 http://www.electronix.com/catalog/advanced_search_result.php?ELECTRONIX_CATALOG_SESSID=c5d90cbb7ae2d4c1449ea48542eef46a&keywords=259296&x=4&y=14
Also here is another website if you have access to junk TV's and want to know what other RCA Flyback Transformer will work. The price on this site is higher for there's though

Maybe The Wires Are Having Shorts because You TV is too old. If So, Try a White Westing house 19 Incher Which is 5 yrs old(My TV!)

SOURCE: TV will not power up
Opened up the back and vacuumed out all the caked on dust that was everywhere. I used an insulated brush to help remove the dust. Dust can kill heat dissipation. Open up the front and check for fluid under the CRT circuit boards. The one on the right (as you face your TV) is the blue one. For some reason, the diaphram for the glycerin in the blue optic is on the back side and leans down. It tends to leak and spill on to the circuit board below. Some symptoms I noticed: blue shadow, blinking blues, complete blue outage, unable to complete the autoconvergence, and arcing/sparking (from another post). I had to pull out the blue CRT, silconed the rubber gasket, refilled the fluid and repaired some solder joints where the fluid caused a short. Works like a champ now. Tell tale sign is the pool of fluid when you access the front chassis. Pull off the speaker grill and shine a flashlight on the inside underneath the CRT circuit boards and look for the fluid. Glycerin doesn't dry.
