RCA D56W20-No Power

A couple years ago my cable connector fell off and recently I had no cable, so stupidly I inserted a wire into the hole to act as an antennea. Now my TV power button "clicks" on for a few seconds and then turns off. It does this 2 more times and stays off. You can try again after waiting a while, but it just does the same thing. The TV is very dusty inside. Can I fix this problem myself??

I have an RCA model D56W20. When I press power, the light flashes 3 long flashes then nothing. No picture, no sound.


I may of seen a different version of this question a few days ago, The set has a 3 strikes and you are out (not a joke) as it will try 3 times when powered up to come on and then go into shutdown.

Most common issue is bad solder connections under the High voltage transformer (see photo of typical one).

Not knowing your skill level let me know how you want to proceed.

I LIKE TO KNOW HOW TO KNOW WHETHER THE PRODUCT IS STILL FUNCTIONING OR NOT? PLEASE ADVISE. SHOW ME HOW TO DO THE CONNECTION OF THE IDE CABLE TO THE HARD DISC AND THE POWER CABLE? HOPEFULLY THESE ARE NOT...


No product support question is stupid, Peter.

1) An IDE cable should be plugged in with the Number 1 socket hole in the IDE cable's connector, going on the Number 1 pin on the harddrive.

Number 1 pin on an IDE optical drive, or harddrive, is next to the 4-pin power connection.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Hard_drive-en.svg

Illustration which shows the back of an IDE (PATA) harddrive.

See the area marked as IDE Connector?
Two rows of pins.

Next over are the Jumper pins in the Jumper Block.

Finally, next to the Jumper Block is the 4-pin power connection.


To make sure the IDE flat ribbon cable, is inserted into the harddrive in the correct position, a Locating Lug is usually on the IDE flat ribbon cable's connector.

A small rectangle, or two bumps side by side, on the top edge of the connector.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:ATA_Plug.svg

This Locating Lug lines up with a cutout, in the circuit board of the harddrive.
A Locating Notch.

Sometimes there isn't a Locating Lug.
In this case look at the side edge of the IDE cable for the faint Red stripe.
This red stripe is on the same side as Number 1 pin.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Nappe.svg

So when you go to plug the IDE cable in, make sure the Red stripe is facing the 4-pin power connection.

Goes for an optical drive (CD/DVD drive), or a Harddrive.



(On the motherboard there are usually two IDE headers. {Connectors}

One for the Primary IDE device, a Harddrive, and one for the Secondary IDE device.
Usually an optical drive.

Next to the Primary IDE connector on the motherboard may be PRI, or Pri, or Primary, or IDE 1.
{ In TINY letter/numbers }

Next to the Secondary IDE connector on the motherboard, may be SEC, or Sec, or Secondary, or IDE 2.

Sometimes only the Secondary connector is marked. This tells you the other connector is the Primary connector.

Number 1 pin is towards the marking. Primary, or Secondary.
The Red stripe goes towards the marking on the motherboard )

Also;
There are two rows of pins on the back of the Harddrive for the IDE cable.
With a cursory glance it may look as though there are two rows of 20 pins.
There is not.

One pin has been removed. One row only has 19 pins.
Generally, but NOT always, the matching socket hole in the IDE cable's connector, is blocked off with a plug.

An IDE cable only uses 39 socket holes even if there are 40 shown.

Also; NOT a good idea to put a Harddrive, and an Optical Drive, on the same IDE cable.

BIOS looks to see which drive has the Master Boot Record.
Windows master boot record.
This is on the Harddrive.

BIOS will look at both, the Harddrive, and the Optical Drive.
This slows the computer down, for one.
For two, BIOS may not find which drive has the master boot record, with both drives on the same IDE flat ribbon cable.

Harddrive goes to the Primary IDE cable.
Optical drive/s go to the Secondary IDE cable.



2) As for the power cable it is a 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable.
Often misnomered as a 'Molex' cable.

[Molex was the model name given by the first company to produce this connector.
It stuck.
Kind of like referring to an open-end wrench as a Crescent wrench ]

It is also a STANDARD 4-pin Peripheral power cable, because there two 4-pin Peripheral power cables.

4-pin Standard Peripheral power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

Note in the center photo the shape of the connector.
The top two corners are rounded.
Only plugs in, in one direction.

{The Yellow wire is a 12 Volt wire.
Red = 5 Volts
Black wires are Ground wires }

4-pin Small Peripheral power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#floppy

Older computers used this power cable for a Floppy Drive.
Newer computers use it for a Card Reader.

Not sure if motherboard just know computer wont power on.


I suggest you perform the test to see if the problem is the Power On switch, or the Power Supply, first.

Power Supply (Computer) plugged into power, you will be using a jumper wire on the 20, or 24-pin ATX main power cable, while the power cable is plugged into the motherboard.

IF the Power Supply comes on, you have a bad Power On switch.

http://www.directron.com/atxswitch.html

IF the Power Supply does not come on, you have a bad Power Supply.

This is an example of a 20-pin ATX main power cable, and it's respective connector on the motherboard,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain20

Older computers use this style of main power cable. (But not REAL old)

This is an example of a 24-pin ATX main power cable, and it's respective connector on the motherboard,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24

Doesn't matter which style your motherboard uses, I just wanted to show you both.
Note that both power cables have a Green wire.

This is seen clearly in the photo all the way to the right, for both styles.
Notice also in the photo to the right how the wires go down into socket holes of the connector.
This is the BACK of the connector.

A jumper wire goes down in the socket hole, RIGHT NEXT TO THE EXISTING WIRE that is in the hole.
The jumper wire has to go deep enough in the socket hole, to touch a metal terminal.

Every wire that goes into that connector ends in a metal terminal.
The metal terminal is at the FRONT of the connector.
Jumper wire has to go approximately 1/2 inch into the socket hole.

The preferred jumper wire used is a paper clip. The paper clip is straightened out, then bent into a
U-shape.
The center of the U is wrapped a few times with black plastic electrical tape.
This area is for your fingers, and thumb to hold onto.

The 'legs' of the U-shaped jumper wire is inserted down into the socket holes.
One leg goes into the socket hole with the Green wire.
The Green wire is the Soft Power On wire. Abbreviated as PS_ON.

The other leg goes down into ANY socket hole with a Black wire in it.
ALL Black wires are Ground wires.

Power Supply plugged into power, the jumper is inserted down into the socket holes - BRIEFLY
No more than 2 seconds. (Count, 1001, 1002)

{The Power On switch is located inside the plastic Power On button assembly.
The Power On switch is a Momentary Contact Switch.
Makes a Brief contact }

Power Supply comes on you have a bad Power On switch.
Power Supply does NOT come on you have a bad Power Supply.

Connecting jumper for start up


That would be connecting a jumper wire, from the Green wire to ANY Black wire, in the 20 or 24-pin ATX main power cable's connector.

If this problem is in direct relation to a Dell E210882 motherboard, it uses a 24-pin ATX main power cable,

http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/desktop/f/3514/p/19298234/19565862.aspx#19565862

Example of a 24-pin power cable, and it's respective connector,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24

The Green wire is the Soft Power On wire. (Abbreviated as PS_ON)
ANY Black wire is Ground wire.

With the 24-pin ATX main power cable plugged into the motherboard, and the power supply,(Computer), plugged into power, the jumper wire is inserted into the back of the 24-pin ATX main power cable's connector.

Looking at the photo to the far right in the link, shows the ATX main power cable plugged in.
Where the wires go into the connector is the BACK of the connector.

One end of the jumper wire, goes down into the socket hole with the Green wire, RIGHT NEXT TO THE WIRE.
The other end goes down into a socket hole with ANY Black wire in it.

The end of every wire going down into the ATX main power cable connector, has a metal terminal end.
This metal terminal end is pretty far down into the connector, from the backside of the connector.
For this reason the jumper wire MUST go down into the socket hole, far enough to touch the metal terminal end.

The most widely used jumper wire is a paper clip.
The paper clip is straightened out, then bent into a U-shape. Black plastic electrical tape is applied to the center of the U shape.
This taped area is for your fingers.

(One wrap of black plastic electrical tape will insulate you from 600 Volts DC)

The 'legs' of the U-shaped paper clip then go down into the socket holes.

The voltage is 5 Volts DC.
Two D cell flashlight batteries produce 3 Volts DC.
The voltage is VERY low, but there may be a small spark.
Warning you in advance.

Power supply comes on?
You have a bad Power On switch.

Power supply does Not come on?
You have a bad Power Supply.

Tv rca model numberf36649 tv turns on then it


This is the best solution for your problem as a 40 year experience with wires etc. Go to the source of your cable signal connector . Open it and clean the terminals with emery paper , sand the end of the cable shiny clean from corrosion , get a new barrel connectors with gold terminals if possible lengthen the ends of the cable , insert and tighten good, use thick rg-16 or rg 40 cable with good insulation ends crimped professionally with a crimpier or buy ready made , not from dollar store. Get a gold plated professional splitter if you need one or two , it will cost about 15 or more each . Make the cable runs as short as possible, using the thick good cables. If needed get a signal magnifier. From radio shack or the source etc. Connect them good and tight . Ground the splitters . Problem solved , you will get crystal clear channel 2 to 7 including 3 and 4 . Isolate the TV cable from other cables and power wires. Vitally

Power Problem


There are two different chassis used in that model. If yours has chassis # ITC222 then the part number will be 264102 if it is chassis # ATC221 then it will be part # 258762. The defelection board for the ATC221 is the cheapest. Here are two links for both to order. http://www.partstore.com/ProductDetail.aspx?ProductSKU=2187237&ProductType=PART http://www.partstore.com/ProductDetail.aspx?ProductSKU=7747288&ProductType=PART
