Question about RCA D52W20 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
I was watchng my 52 inch RCA projection tv on sunday and it just cut off and now my tv will not turn on, the power light comes on for about 5 seconds and cuts back off. the tv is about 5 years old
After the power surge , the TV went on protect mode.
Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.
Also ensure that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending bad signal, check if you get same problem with no receiver box or dvd connected.
If that does not work, and you keep having a flashing led on front of the TV, and tv turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.
The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible reasons.
1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.
2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , startingthe flashing light.
If you are in situation one, then theTV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.
If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.
Common faults that can occur after power surge on a rear projection are a blown capacitor on power board, a component on ballast board has blown, or a fault on Digital board had occurred.
If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual
If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

This is a problem common with some RCA/GE TV's. The fix in the past was to install a capacitor between ground and pin 15 of the microprocessor which keeps a data signal riding on the video stream from muting the sound on most stations. By installing this capacitor, you would be disabling the closed caption feature so that feature would no longer work. An authorized RCA TV repair shop may be able to give you more information.

SOURCE: picture doesn't fit screen
my rca truflat tv projects a larger picture than the screen, its really annoying i play my 360 and it cuts off alot of the screen so i cant read messages on the left and right of the tv screen, there are no options to adjust the ratio so all there really is to do is to buy a new t.v. if you are reading this i recomend you do not waste your money on a TruFlat RCA T.V. If somebody has a solution please let me know it would save me money and would make me very pleased.

I repaired an RCA 52" TV. I found two capacitors on the board that were bad. They were bulged on the top. This seems to be a common problem on many projection TV's. Try searching this website using the model number as your keyword.
Hope this helps,

Your TV is overheating.. easiest remedy is to point a fan at the back of the TV or... clean the inside of the TV, Im sure its full of dust and stuff... this prevents air circulation inside the TV thus creating more heat...
