SOURCE: RCA BIG SCREEN TV WONT TURN ON HELP !!!!!!!!!!!!

Try unplugging it for about 30-60 seconds, then plug it back in and before you turn it on, make sure there is a good video source going to the TV either from Satellite/Cable or a DVD player or something.

If this doesn't work, try unplugging it a bit longer and then plug it back in and try again. If it still does not work, you may have to take it in and get it serviced.

Usually when devices power themselves off like that, there's something wrong...

I hope this helps :) Good luck!

Best Regards,

James

Recommend opening it up and looking at the power board and see if there are any visible Bulged or leaking capacitors.
Bad caps are a major source of computer and LCD no post problems.
If you find em, then just find replacements with the same uF and voltage and solder them out/in.

You need to do some troubleshooting first since it can be any one or more of the boards that failed. Please read my guide below before DIY.

Hello,

The issue you describe is consistent with a power supply board issue. This is the board where the AC goes to. This problem may have occurred as a result of irregular power supply, or excess power supply or power surge.

The TV is receiving current but cannot circulate or transfer the current to other necessary part of the TV because of the defective power supply board.

I do not think it needs replacement, rather some defective capacitors are causing this issue.
Open unit up and take a look at the power supply board.You will probably see one or more electrolytic filter capacitors that are bulged up in the top-not perfectly flat like the others.

The value of these capacitors will be different, most likely they will be somewhere around-820 to 2200uF/25 V( or /10V sometimes)

You can replace them with same values but I would recommend the voltage rating to be higher(like 35V for an original 25V) for reliability purposes.

What happens is,these bulged top capacitors will cause a low and unfiltered DC voltage=main board will malfunction(the relay will keep clicking until the caps are holding enough charge to bring the voltage up over a threshold point).

You can buy these capacitors at any Fry's or Radioshack store or you can order them online at vendors like "mcmelectronics.com"(look for electrolytic capacitors).
After replacing these capacitor(capacitors) most likely the normal operation will be restored.

Note: There may be also some other causes for this symptom ,like a defective T con board ,or main board,but the bulged top capacitors are the most common cause for this issue.

If you don't know about TV repairers, take the TV to the nearest repairman to fix the fault for you. Also, note that TV stores a lot of current, so wait a while before opening the TV back cover.

I hope this helps.

Good luck.

I have an rca L42WD22YX5 that just went to a blank screen yesterday. The screen keeps reading unusable signal. It is only 14 months old.


i had this happen last year, now my tv is messed up again. when we had the problem with the unusable signal, the tv repair shop told us it was the main motherboard that caused it. ended up paying $250.00 to have it fixed. Now, our tv is broke again, this morning turned it on, got the green light, then just started flashing red, hasnt worked any at all today, reset it and everything. My suggestion, if you can afford to buy a new tv, do it, because I called the repair shop again this morning about the new problem, they said after the 1 year warrentt from rca runs out all they do is tear up. My tv isnt even 4 years old, bought it at the end of 2007, now its tore up twice, going to purchase a samsung in the morning from brandsmart. Good Luck!
