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

Open Question

T V works fine when it actually stays on.

When you power on the tv, then light immediately comes on and picture comes on after about 5 seconds. Lately it has been shutting off immediately so we would turn on again and it would shut off. Finally I looked on the backside of the tv while someone else pressed power and you could hear a fizzle noise and see a spark. We have since unplugged it and moved it out of our tv room. I'm not sure if this tv is salvagable or if we just need to throw it out. Please help!

SOURCE: Power will not stay on...

i had this problem with mine about 4-5 years ago. i was watching it one night and snap/pop it went off. i tried to turn it on and it would click on and go right off. i took the dang thing in to repair shop and it cost me $450.00 to fix the overheated circuit board, according to the repairman, he stated that this is a problem with this tv. so here we are again with the same problem 4-5 years later. in my opinion this is one of pioneers biggest piece of junk electronics ever made. when a $2000.00 plus tv lasts less than ten years there is a problem. i hope this may kinda help answer someones questions. good luck tim

Back-light problem. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis.

Did you check the service manual troubleshooting guide yet. You can try disconnecting the power to the inverter board and see if it will stay on and have sound.

I have a 52" RCA


sounds like the power supply capacitors CP150, CP120 and CP114 need replacement. You can get the RCA repair kit by that same name from www.tvrepairworld.com which has the caps and the CD with repair instructions.

Call Samung customer service, they are doing this repair for free. I had the same problem at 11 months, they replaced the power supply board under warranty. At 2 years I had the exact same problem again and this time they replaced 2 - 50 cent capacitors on the power supply board. It took the repair man less than an hour and he had the replacement capacitors on hand. The original board and the replacement board they gave me had capacitors that were faulty. Hopefully these new capacitors will last. I have to say that I was thinking (no more samsung products for me) but I got excellent customer service and they admit that they had a faulty product and they accepted responsibility.

Picture & sound go on & off every sec, red light blinks 5 times


helloFive blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen slightly.

Green power light comes on for a split second, then red.


The power supply (AC adapter) is bad. It has enough power to light the red LED, but not enough to power the TV.http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trksid=m38&_nkw=12+volt+5+amp+power+supply&_sacat=See-All-Categories

I have a 40 but i was having the same problem. It turned out to be my lamp. I got a brand new lamp from Projector Lamp Services (relampit.com) and my tv works fine now. Im pretty sure that the 40 and the 60 take the same lamp. You might want to give them a call.
