Tv will not turn on. green lite for 4 secs, 3 times, then off. D52W20

It could be several issues from a bag power supply, the TV is connected to a power strip with several other components hooked up (DVD, Sound System, Xbox, etc.).

Try connecting to the wall directly and see if it now starts up.

RCA D52W20

there i a component fixing to fail, the processor in this set is detectecting a problem and is shutting the set down for safety. there is high problibity that it is something high voltage. I see this all the time at the shop the processor stores the error that caused the shutdown and as a technician we read these useing specail computer inferface. as the owner the one thing that you can try is to uplug the set and plug it back up after about 30 min to hour.( i have never seen this work) but it the first thing you can try. THese sets can be bought at walmart for around 800 new. average repair bill is about 400. these sets can be trouble.
