Hi Buddy
there are a few things that can cause this symptom but we need to go back and regroup .
let's go at this from a technical stand point .
when you plug the unit in and turn it on what do you see the led's in the area of the power button and pay close attention to the blinks if there are any . then we can try to get you on the right track .
also id guess you already have the back of the set off ?
if so on the large board on your left side looking at it from the rear of the unit . there are some caps that we should look at cp150 cp130 cp120 if i remember correctly . what your looking for is the bulged cap that some many hit on and true its a problem but if it hadn't been for caps failing they may never have fixed them .
one word of caution is not to push the power button excessive at this point if there is a loss of deflection you may well damage one of the crt's or picture tubes this unit has a red crt blue and green and they provide the screen lighting and video you see .
with you behind the set perhaps you could have some one push the power button and listen to that high voltage transformer on the left side board it has a red wire coming off of it . and be cautious there is possible shock hazard there .
and if you have access to the caps i would change those caps right off the start as they are most likley defective as well as other possibility then let me know what you find and il see what i can do to assist you

Replace the vertical output IC (DL032) on the deflection board. It is mounted on a heatsink, in the middle of the board. That is usually the culprit on the ITC222 chassis for bowing problems. Also, check the solder connections on the flyback transformer.

SOURCE: 52 inch rca rear projection tv wont turn on

I have the same problem. I had someone come look at it and he showed me the problem but a terrible price, so i didnt have it fixed. The reason the light blinks is there is a problem and the safety mech is kicked in which shuts the TV off. If you take the back of the TV off, about 15 screws, you will see right in the front on the left side a part shaped like the letter "C". The number on top of mine is S5 19 2. That is the part that needs to be replaced. Now to find the part on the internet and figure out how to change it out. any suggestions?

I had the same problem with the power button blinking 3 times and not coming on. I took this advice and changed the flyback 259296. That did not work. I also took the advice of superman276 and changed the cp150 and my tv works now. Flyback is $60 and the cp150 is $2. I pretty much wasted my money on the flyback.

The picture is getting weak can I buy a light for this model d52w

the dw52w20 is a CRT based projection tv ... it has a small very bright picture tube inside to produce the picture which is focused onto the large screen .. so there is no light bulb that can be changed ..there are several things that can cause the picture to become weak ... first, dust build up on the CRT (picture tube) and associiated lenses and mirrors will cause the proplem ... cleaning those will almost always help .. the dust will cause the picture to be weak and a bit fuzzy, sometimes cloudy ... next, because the CRT is driven so hard to produce the large 52 inch image then its life is not as long as normal picture tubes will weaken with age ... your model has had some trouble with convergence .. thats where colors tend to seperate .. that was a good tv in its day and had wonderful capabilitys but now it cant compete with modern sets ... the new ones use less power and are much brighter but you will have trouble finding one with a better picture ... brighter yes ..sharper yes but there was a smoothness (dynamiic range) about the CRT type sets thats hard to beat... unfortunatly service bills for your set have been getting pretty high .. at times approaching the cost of a new set ... that and the fact that TV prices have dramatically come down, makes a fix or buy decision easier if its in the budget ... if you are really handy then you could clean the CRT, lenses and mirrors yourself but make sure its unplugged for an hour first ... there is very high voltage in there otherwise ..
here is a manual for your tv if you need it ...
