    Wow, Is this a defect or something? I have a RCA 52in D52W20. Will not turn on. When the power button is pushed on the little green light in it will come on for 5 secs., off 3 secs., on 5 secs., off 3 secs., then on one more time for 5 secs. BUT if the button is pushed and held it will flash once, a pause, followed by 9 more flashes. Is that a diagnostic code like you can get from a car? The previous owner could do something to it to get it to work, then would leave it on and use a cable box. No clue what he did.

The d52w20 rca chasis itc222 can be difficult to troubleshoot sometimes. there a few things you can assume at this stage. ONe it is NOT the fuse. The processor in this set is seeing a voltage or saftey shutdown issue. and is shuting the set down for saftey. THis is where the troubleshooting begins. High voltage or overcurrent conditions are generely the problem. \technicians have speceil computer diagnostic equipment that can read error codes in the processor. much like in a car. but without it yo0u pretty much have to check things like horizontal ouput transitor.

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
