D52W20 problem The tv shut itself off and would not come back on. I have unplugged it for 10 minutes like the manual said and still nothing. When it does come on it shuts itself off in 5-10 minutes. What else can I try before I have to call a repair man?

RCA D52W20 TV powers on fine, then shuts itself off after 5 - 10 minutes. After 20-30 minutes, I can turn tv back on, but then shuts off again in 5 minutes.

it looks like the problem is in the 16v line..try to take it apart..and there's gonna be a 2200mf cap leaky.
that will solve your problem.

There is a common power supply problem with these that requires the replacement of four capacitors on the power board. This could be causing your problem.

ok is the set completlely dead. DOEs the Led on the front flash. if it does not flash this is an indication of a primary power interuption. POSSIbley main fuse. Now generally the main fuse does not blow unless there something else wrong. some other component shorted. Now if the light flashes then this is an indication that the main fuse is still good and that the processor is getting power and that it has detected a condition that requires it to shut down. ussaly a high voltage issue

Power light flashing/ no picture

I have the same problem. The only way to get the TV to come on is to unplug it, but once you get it back on it turns itself off again in a few minutes.
