Re: power

This has happened to me twice. We had the warranty and thank God we did. The problem is in a $7 transistor and you probably need to call a repair shop. They worked on ours and it took about 20 minutes to replace the transistor. They take out the bad one and soder in the new one on the circut board inside the back of the tv. The total cost was nothing for us because of the warranty, but it came to $385 for labor and stuff. Again, this happened twice, one year to the date from one another. The repair guy finally installed a different brand of transistors and it's been fine since. He said that RCA makes some terrible transistors and he will not use them again. Try and get the repair person to use a non-rca brand transistor, because it will more than likely happen again if he don't.

Re: power

If the idicator light flashes this indicates a processor shutdown. first thing a customer can do is uplug for 30 min and try again. This never works i must admit but it eliminate the processor lockup chance. Now if it still does this then you have a problem the processor has detected a cuircit failure and shut the set down for safety. This also tells you it not a "FUSE" since the procesor is getting power. The processor generates a error log that can be read by a technician and a computer. other than that all i can offer is check for loose connection and if you have any technician experence alway check horizontal output transitor.

My D52w23 makes noise and wont turn on keeps trying several times

Does it sound like a sharp short squeal, or a soft wispy whine that coincides with the blinking power light 3 times then stops when the power light each time? If so respond to this same post and I will assist you with the issue.

ProScan wont turn on

PS52690 52" projection TV (CTC188 series) that won't power up. From what I have read here and other places, the most common cause of this is the HV splitter. Actually, when the unit was 3 years old, the HV splitter went out and had to be replaced but it was under warranty at the time. I have found that the part I need is 205064 and runs around $40-$70
A post in another thread said that you could test to see if the HV splitter is really the problem by disconnecting the HV anode (big red wire) from the flyback (not the splitter since that will arc), plug the TV in, power it up, and if the power stays on and you hear sound, replace the HV splitter to fix the problem.
