    i have the rca senium 56 inch,and its just turning on and off by it,s self at first i thought it was a ghost but the ghost said he wasnt doing it.So now its just on for 30 seconds and then off.

    The set will have a blinking green light when turning on and then shuts off. If you warm the insides using a hair drier on the hottest setting, it will evenutally come on with horizontal banding from left to right which goes away after a few seconds. Now the banding occurs at certain times when the display shows dark scenes. We leave the set on all the time now. I suspect a capacitor or resister changing value. I don't have a manual. Has anyone found a solution. Thank you.

    the three previous responders described it well enough, but the solution is a little too coded... any chance we could get a better description for where these items are in the set, and a little more clarity on what to do. (not a tv repair tech, just an electronics nerd... usually computer perifs. so i don't speak the lingo)

HV splitter and flyback are common failure items. Remove the HV lead from the HV splitter that comes from the flyback, Place that into a dry glass jar secured so it doesnt come out. Then try powering up the set if the set powers up without shutting down the splitter is bad.

    what if the tv set turns off, when testing the flyback, what to check next?

Describe your D52W20 52 in. Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television Problem the tv will not turn on the power light will blink three times then shut off

That could be caused by the CP150, CP120 and CP114 capacitors on the deflection board. Very famous issue. You can get the RCA repair kit by that same name from which has the capacitors and the CD with repair instructions

My RCA D52W20 --> turns on sometimes, when it does, it blinks once, slow, and then after the 1 slow blink, blinks 9 times fast. now, i dont know whats wrong but sometimes the tv wont even blink to show...

Sounds like the Flyback needs resoldering then replace the Three caps CP150, CP120, and CP114. You can get the repair kit by that same name from the kit also contains the CD with instructions.

RCA D52W20 Does not power on- what to check for?

Hi, if the capacitor has bulged out then its likely to have taken out a fuse on the board, they are not obvious to find as they surface mount them, they look like resistors, often a white body with a number on it eg, 5 for 5amps. With the power off, check around the componets for open resistance, set your meter at 10 or 100 ohms, analogue meters are better than digital for this analysis. Watch out for capacitance as ther could be several hundred volts stored in the circuit.

The power button blinks 3x''s but the TV does not come on at all

This is most likely caused by leaky capacitors in the television. The power supply that feeds the startup voltage to the CCFL tubes usually contain shoddy caps, which in a few years usually bulge and leak. 8 times out of 10 this is the case, look for any bulging caps, and replace them with the same or a higher voltage rating.

RCA D52W20 52 in. Rear Projection HDTV power light blinking

Liz, yes it is a power supply problem, better question is; low voltage or high voltage power supply ? count the blink code, it should repeat the code, once you have the code call your local tv shops and give them the model number of your tv and the blink amount and they`ll tell you price to fix, gl, video-tek

Look on Deflection board 3 capacitors need replacing cp150---cp114----cp120 one is 2200uf 16v Two of them are 220uf 35v. Buy capacitors at Radio SHack. If cp150 is puffed up on top it is bad so replace other 2 caps as well.
