Question about RCA D52W20 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
We've had this TV now for about 4 years and the other night, it was working just fine when we turned it off. In the morning I went to turn it on and got nothing. The power button lights up but with no sound or picture. You can here it click on and power up when you push the power button but it does nothing. Leave the power on and in a few minutes, it will turn it's self off. Then a few minutes later, it will turn back on like it wants to keep trying. I have to just unplug it to keep it from turning on and off.
Any ideas on where the problem might lay? Haven't called a reapir shop yet. Wanted to see if anyone out there has had this problem before and found the solution before I got taken to the cleaners by the repair shop. Thanks for any help!
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.
