Question about RCA HD52W58 52" TV

2 Answers

RCA Television D52W14

When I try to turn the TV on with the remote, the power button lights up for 5 seconds then turns off. There is no picture or sound. It does this 3 times.

I tried the front panel buttons and the same thing happens. I have unplugged the television and plugged it back in. I finally unplugged it all night and plugged it in. As soon as I try to get the power on- the light stays on for 5 seconds, goes off, clicks on again for 5 seconds and goes off, and finally goes on again for 5 seconds and then shuts off. No picture or sound.

Can anyone advise what to do?

The first thing in this unit is to check the ribbon cable that goes from the front control panel to the back ssb board, I would unplug and replug to make sure seated properly. Then try it again. There are alot of screws to take out but worth it if this solves the problem.

The itc222. I have seen alot of these at the shop. The first thing to know is that these set have a microprocessor that will shut the unit down for any of 20 different reasons. for safty. The processor logs these errors and technicians can read these with special computer interface. generally the most popular problems are the horizontal transistor and the flyback. There could be high voltage problems. this is where the troubleshooting begins

Need code for my vizio tv i bought a ihip remote control for my tv


The instructions on letting the Hipi remote to seach for the code that came with my remote are not correct. I used the instructions from HOWTO.COM and printed below. There are two changes from the printed instructions. The first is to push the <TV> button after the <Code Search> button. The second is that the <Enter> button saved the code not the <MUTE> button.

Instructions
1
Turn on the Vizio TV.
2
Aim the Jumbo Universal Remote at the Vizio TV and hold down the "Code Search" button on the remove for roughly 3 to 5 seconds. The LED lights on the Jumbo Universal Remote will come on.
3
Press the "TV" button at the top of the Jumbo Universal Remote.
4
Start pressing the "ON/OFF" button repeatedly until the Vizio TV turns off. (This took only a few tries for my Vizio TV)
5
Press "Enter" on the remote immediately after the Vizio TV turns off to save the code.
6
Test the Jumbo Universal Remote by trying to control the Vizio TV with the remote. If the control doesn't work with the remote, repeat the entire process.

I have a Sharp flat panel model LC-20SH4U. The units power LED light is red. No effect (sound or picture) when remote or on/off switch is activated. The LED light slightly blinks.


Resetting the TV
If the buttons on the remote AND the buttons on the TV case do not work (channels do not change and you cannot open or navigate the menu), the TV has stopped responding. Reset the TV as follows:

NOTE:
Some TVs have a reset button. If available and accessible, try using the reset buttons before using the steps below. Using the reset buttons can save time.

clip_image001.jpg
1. Unplug the TV power cord from the power outlet.
2. Unplug any connected devices (DVD, Set-top boxes, etc...)
3. Press and hold the TV power button for five seconds.
4. Plug the TV power cord back into the power outlet and turn on the TV.
5. Open the on-screen menu to confirm that the TV is responding again.
6. Turn off the TV and reconnect the devices.
7. Turn on the TV.

Hope this may help;

My bell remote is not working. i changed the batteries but no luck.


Hello, this sounds like you have a problem with your DISH remote. If you are, here are some steps to get it working. The first set of steps is to get it working with the tv, the second for getting it working on your receiver.

TV:
1. Hold down the Clear TV button until all lights at the top of the remote light up
2. Press the red TV POWER button
3. Press and release the up arrow on the remote about once a second until the tv turns off.
4. When it turns off, press the # (Pound) button
5. Try powering the tv on/off, and try the volume. If one or more of these functions do not work, start over at step 1 again.

RECEIVER:
1. Go to System Info Screen
2. Press and release the SAT button on the remote one time
3. Press the black and red record button 3 times.
4. The number next to the remote address should change.

I am trying to set up dish network on this tv i can not get the channel to change to 73 only 70 and 76 i have no remote control for this tv just using whats on the tv


Hello. If this has not yet been resolved, I have some simple steps for you that will help you out.
First off, it sounds like the remote needs to be programmed, and since I do not know the particular DISH remote you have, here are the steps for a power scan, which will scan the TV for the correct code.
1. Hold down the Clear TV button until all lights at the top of the remote light up
2. Press the red TV POWER button
3. Press and release the up arrow on the remote about once a second until the tv turns off.
4. When it turns off, press the # (Pound) button
5. Try powering the tv on/off, and try the volume. If one or more of these functions do not work, start over at step 1 again.

Then once you are on 73, that picture will work. You can also try the alternate channels, which are 22 and 21. That may also give you a picture. I hope this helps!

Hi, i bought dish universal remote . all buttons working but volume buttons not so please help me. my old remote was 1.5ir and new has 3.2 ir universal


Hello, it sounds like all that you need to do is program your remote to the tv. Because I do not know the brand of your tv, I'll give you the power scan instructions. The power scan scans the tv for the correct remote code.

1. Hold down the Clear TV button until all lights at the top of the remote light up
2. Press the red TV POWER button
3. Press and release the up arrow on the remote about once a second until the tv turns off.
4. When it turns off, press the # (Pound) button
5. Try powering the tv on/off, and try the volume. If one or more of these functions do not work, start over at step 1 again.

Hope this helps!!

Green power light comes on for a split second, then red.


The power supply (AC adapter) is bad. It has enough power to light the red LED, but not enough to power the TV.http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trksid=m38&_nkw=12+volt+5+amp+power+supply&_sacat=See-All-Categories

Power button Flashes


For the first one, please list the model number and count the blinks. Also, can you please post each problem separately. It will get too confusing trying to address 3 sets with different but similar problems.
Thanks,
