Question about RCA L42WD22 42 in. LCD Television

2 Answers

Have an RCA L42WD22, recently stopped working. When you plug it in, the green status light comes on in the front for about 20 seconds and then goes to a flashing red five times over and over. Found one leaking capacitor, replaced but unit still not working. LED starts flashing immediately when the backlight turns on. I can see the backlight come on for just a moment then it goes to flashing the diagnostic code.

    The leaking cap was on the PS board; on my model the PS and inverter are together. Did you get anything more descriptive than "panel error"? Thanks for the help so far Rusty

Hi,
Found a post online saying 5 blinks is a panel error. Bad panels you have to replace. That could explain the leaking cap you found since bad panels can cause power supply or inverter damage. Where was it located on power supply or inverter? some models they combine the 2 together on one board. There is a small chance that the main board is flashing that error only because the board got damaged not because the panel is bad. I'd google " l42wd22 parts" and look for a deal on which board had the damage. If it is the panel its cheaper to buy another TV. Good luck!

I think you have a ADC that went bad and needs to be checked out. You need to have a service adjustment done by your Service Tech. You just can't fix the ADC without clearing the buffers, and all the other procedures needed to fix this TV. I think your TV repair persons are probably just going over the complex procedures to fix your TV.

Good luck and have a great day!

Blinking green status light


Unplug for a few minutes then plug back in to try to reset it. Sometimes it could take as long as overnight before pluging back in to reset. Number of blinks is usually a trouble code.

Green light on front comes on for 15 seconds then goes off


I've repaired 3 of these already. The only solution was to replace the Main board. I got all of them at " ShopJimmy.com. they came out of scrap sets, they give you a warranty. It was cheaper than buying new, of which none of my suppliers had them in stock, they were on factory back-order. (RCA)

Hi,
To start you need to factory reset both adapters,
plug them both into a wall socket next to each other, press the config/f reset button, hold in until ap light goes off, repeat on the other one.
Now you should have a red status light on both.
Press the config/f reset button on one for about 5 seconds, wait until ap light stays on, this one is now your access point (ap) that should be plugged in to your router when you have finished config.
Now press the ap adapter config button again for about 5 seconds until ap light flashes, then press the config button on the other adapter until ap light flashes, wait until they both stop flashing, wait a few seconds, the status light on both adapters should be green, and one adapter should have an amber ap light.
Hope this helps.
