Question about RCA HD52W59 HDTV Projection Television
When switch on the light on the TV blinks 3 times but will not come on. I use the remote and it does the same thing. This started about 6 months ago. It use to take a while to come on but now it will not. It is 2 years old but is not under warrany. Can you tell me what is wrong and will it cost as much to fix as it costed? Please advise.
I just got mine fixed for the power light blinking 3 times and turn off!! Remedy was to replace the 2 capacitors that looks puff up on top when "they are shot-one is tall--the other is short.
I was told by the repair tech that they were not of the right voltage and is probably why they were on their last leg. when they burn out the set won't turn on at all.

This is funny (not) I have had my TV for 2 years as well and I have the same issue. I think RCA should recall this TV and repair all the TV's that have this problem. I also think we should all get together and demand that RCA do something about this issue since it appears to be a manufacture defect or we should file a class action suit to make them pay us for our losses.

I have the same problem, well you could do what i do. just take a hair dryer turn it on and hold it on the right lower side of the TV for about 2 minutes then turn the TV on.
This works for me for about 1 to 2 weeks then i have to do it again.

I have had the same problem with mine, i unscrewed the back casing and i discovered dust and spiderwebs i took a damp cloth and my tv worked but when you do this please unplug your tv. also i dont no if weve got the same problem but my sound would turn on but the image wouldnt so i hope its nothing major, but if it is i'd imagine you would have to replace the tube!!! Good Luck!

My 52in just wnt out. I think it is the transformer. It turned off and made a popping sound. It is 2years and 6mo old. I was suprised when I called RCA and they said they will fix the tv. A service guy will be out on tuesday. I told them that it was putting oyt sparks. They seamed extremly coucerned that it almost caught on fire. My be that have relized that they have a major problem with the sets. Modle is HD52W67

Yes we should all get together on this TV and file complaints. This tv should have been recalled because of the major defects it had. I am pissed.
