Rca d52w20 won't turn on

Green light comes on 3 time

Posted by on

  • cbvcsf May 25, 2009

    I have an RCA model D52W20 rear projection TV built in June of 2004. When the power button is pressed the green power indicator light on the tv will blink 3 times and the tv does not turn on. I have to wait a couple of minutes before pressing the power button again and this process will repeat itself between 2 & 5 times. when the tv does finally turn on it sounds like the bulbs are energized and the screen is black with purple streaks and very blury however when I press the input button on the remote and cycle thru the various inputs and return to componet 1 everything is picture perfect like theres no problem at all. any suggestions, diagnosis procedures to further isolate the problem?

Something wrong ..of coarse there is what i mean to say is that the processor has detected a problem with one of many safety circuits. the fact that the light flashes tell you a few things. .the processor is recieving power which means you have some standby.. your main power or whats known as you ac doubler is working. your horizontal may have failed.. your flyback may be bad.. this set generates errors that can be read by a technician when he plugs up a computer to it. but unfortiantly you'll have to get it to him

Does not turn on


when the green light flashes.. this mean the processor in the set is shuting the set down. for some saftey issue. it doesnt want to cause a fire or damage the set further. it can be one of many issues. techninicans have speacial equipment to read the set to determine the errors. this is pretty standard with this set
