Seems like a bad contact somewhere - could be bad / deteriorated solder connections somewhere on the circuit board, broken wires or similar - check any connectors (especially in the area where you noticed sparking), see if the pins have bad solder contacts, also check other components - resolder any bad connections, this might solve the problem.

RCA MODEL D52W19 I PRESS THAT POWER BUTTON GREEN LIGHT FLICKS FOR


try unplugging the tv for a few hours. then plug it in and push the power button on the front of the tv.

it has something to do with this processor issue inside the tv....its pretty much a stupid thing.

should have been a recall because everyone has the same problem on here.

this is pretty much just a band-aid over cancer, but i've been having to do this for about a month now, and it works.

Television response.


Its the IR sensor. You could go the DIY router and solder a new one back on, or buy an add on one if your set accepts it.

Channnel keeps flicking like your changing channels with remote


when you say flickering??? are you saying the screen goes black and comes back on?? does the sound go out at the same time and comes bag on with the pic ? Is the sound there when this happens but is distorted. Is the pic blacked out or is it greying out with lines and twisting?? Need more info please as if its blacking out and the sound goes with it it may be going into shutdown. If the pic is getting kinda greyish with it twisting and the sound is there and ditorted then the tuner could be bad
