    TV will not turn on. The green indicator light flashes three time and goes off and still no picture. After 3.5 hours of repeat attempts to turn the set on, I finally got the TV on with no sound. Please help?

Bad deflection board

    Sorry to be so blunt but I would tell a repairman to start with the deflection board. Average cost if you took it to the shop would be around $300 parts and labor.

Power light flashes 3 times then nothing

this sounds like the typical bad fly-back transformer that is also known as the high voltage transformer, n=-Not really a repair for a novice so unless you know all of the safety notices with this set please do not attempt this repair as why save 100 bucks for something that could seriously kill you!!!!!

Problem with 52 inch RCA projector t.v

It sounds like the CP150 and or the CP114/120 capacitors need to be replaced, they cost around 3 dollars each and can be found at Radio shack or you can order them from and they will send instructions with them.

My 52 inch RCA HD/TV Does not turn on

Replace CP150 on the deflection board and that should take care of the problem since it starts once in a wnile if it didnt start ever then you would need the 259296 flyback and the CP150 Capacitor.

52 inch rca rear projection tv wont turn on

I have the same problem. I had someone come look at it and he showed me the problem but a terrible price, so i didnt have it fixed. The reason the light blinks is there is a problem and the safety mech is kicked in which shuts the TV off. If you take the back of the TV off, about 15 screws, you will see right in the front on the left side a part shaped like the letter "C". The number on top of mine is S5 19 2. That is the part that needs to be replaced. Now to find the part on the internet and figure out how to change it out. any suggestions?
