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

Won't turn on

The tv won't turn on but the green light for the on switch will come on and go off several times.

The light comes on and goes off 3 times. It sounds like the tv is turning on and off, but just will not stay powered up.

Re: Won't turn on

Dave, not what you want to hear but here goes, You will need service manual, voltmeter, soldering equipment, and lots of patience for this repair, unfortunately this model/chassis has lots of known fixes for your symptom, heres what I have for known fixes on your set, Horizontal output transistor, flyback transformer, vertical IC, Rlo1,Rl044,DL201, CL031, ANY of these components will cause your symptom, I have personally installed all of the parts listed into various sets to get the set running correctly. I`m NOT trying to insult your intelligence but I recommend you get a tech out to your home to repair this one, I hope this helps, again please don`t be offended I`m just trying to give you good advice, BMW Rider

Hitachi tv turns on then sometimes it won't

The clue is does the power light come on or not, several of the older ones had a problem with a relay in the power supply, unplugging set one or more times would allow set on.

My Mitsubishi Medallion tv stays on for about 10 minutes and then shuts down and won't turn back on until a period of time has passed. It is a rear projection tv about 9 years old. Can anyone help ex

When it shuts off and the green power light goes off, press both the menu and input buttons on the front of the set (not the remote) and hold both for about five seconds and release.

Power light will blink a two digit error code like 2 blinks and then 3 blinks and repeat it several times.

What is the error code?
