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

1 Answer

RCA light comes on and then goes off. Tv doesn't turn on

I have an RCA d52w20 and a few weeks ago I noticed it took a few times to get the TV to turn on. I will turn it on and the screen stays black but I will here a click and the green light will come on then go off and then another click and light and then they both go off again. The TV never actually shows a picture or sound. I can try it over and over and over and over and eventually 20-50 tries it will actually come on. My wife actually refuses to turn it off now. I work with computers for a living and am pretty good at hardware but have never worked on a TV. What does this issue sound like? I will turn it on and the screen stays black but I will here a click and the green light will come on then go off and then another click and light and then they both go off again. The TV never actually shows a picture or sound. I can try it over and over and over and over and eventually 20-50 tries it will actually come on. Plus does anyone have a service manual with diagrams fot this series D52W20BYX1

Replace CP150 and CP114 you can get them at the following link they also have the ITC222 service manual which is listed under Thomson as Thomson makes your TV for RCA. The Capacitors are listed under the RCA parts and they do send instructions with pictures of where the capacitors are located as well as how to remove the board.

Won't turn on


those tvs will try 3 times before completely shutting down. you can try and take the back off and check CP150 it is a large capactior located near the middle of the board on the left hand side(looking from back) if it looks and feels like the top is vented or puffed out then that could be the problem. if not i suggest having a qualified service tech take a look because there are too many things that could be the root cause.

RCA light comes on and then goes off. Tv doesn't turn on


Is this your set?http://tv.rca.com/NR/rdonlyres/A2ED8EB5-A0AF-401F-A380-3CB61D5EBEB1/0/D52W20_222Chassis.pdf If it is, there could be a bad solder connection in the start up power supply or there is a resistor that will get loose or change value. It gives the power supply the start up pulse from the flyback transformer. there are no user replaceable parts inside this set, and the longer you wait to get it serviced, the more its going to cost. Unless you have a service manual and understand how the SMPS works, please play it safe and call in a pro to assist you in this repair. Good Luck Please do not forget to rate this thread.
