Question about RCA D52W20 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

Picture turns on and off

My picture goes in and out about every 30 seconds but I can still hear the sond the whole time. When the picture goes out the power button blinks 5 times. The picture looks great while its showing. I checked the timer settings and they were both off. Can someone please help!

ps
My TV is a RCA M50WH92S. It wouldnt let me choose it from the products and I have unplugged it from the surge protector and into the wall but still the same problem

    yah have the same problem, someone suggested a 'loose ribbon' was the cause, but said nothing else about how to fix it nor where to find info on fixing it.

    my stupid rca m50wh92s is exactly a year old and it blinks in and out... i don't think a tv should only last a year with or without warrenty.. the thing is we just had this happen on the Rca tv right before this one except it lasted 3yrs. then blinked in and out the repair guy said 785.23 to fix - ya right i bought another rca and am really wondering if it is an rca issue. Is there an easy fix? Is it something I can do?

Just found this trying to figure out what was wrong with my same model tv. Since mine was under warantee, I had the repairman troubleshoot it. He changed the lamp and the tv started working normally again.

I didn't understand how the lamp could be bad if it lit up while the tv was on. He said the tube was probably using too much voltage or too little voltage to run, so the tv would turn itself off and on in an attempt to receive the correct voltage from the lamp.

I realize this is 9 months late, but maybe it can help someone else who has this problem. I can't believe there are only 3 rca dlp's out there with this problem.

The lamp was the problem. Don't buy a cheap bulb, they don't last.

Thank you very much for your help. I eventually replaced the bulb as a last ditch effort and discovered it fixed it lol

Picture & sound go on & off every sec, red light blinks 5 times


helloFive blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen slightly.

Good Day, hazzletp;
You may have a bad comb filter or one of the CRT's (picture tubes)(cathod ray tube), are going bad. Call an Authorized Service Center and have them come to your home and give you a written estimate b4 repair. Cost AVG $550.00, if CRT is bad go shopping.
Good Luck, big IRISH.
