Keeps turningoff my tv will only turn on whenever it likes. I left it on for about a month last time and it stayed on and worked good for that time but as soon as i turned it off nothing again for a week or so then it fires up again any clue why this is happening? there is no sound at all when i try and turn it on. do you have a link for a service manual for this tv? I am not a technition but I am an electrician so maybe I can figure something out. Any thing you can think of why this is happening could help. Thanks

I just posted a link for the manual. I would think that it may be solder related. RCA has some issues with their solder especially around the flyback and tuner sections.

My RCA D52W19 HDTV Ready TV will not turn on. The power led comes on three times after pressing the button on the tv itself or attempting to power on with the remote. The condition has been getting worse...


Hi Aaron,

I just want to ask you something before I give the solution, does the unit gone to start-up problem (needs warm-up before it finally turn on, needs to pressed the power button key several times, needs to unplug from the outlet and plug it back in)before, you have said that you've encountered it last few months?

Tv wont turn on


Green light of death, capacitors have to be replaced but it probably wont fix it anyways. Once this happens the TV is completely useless.

Left tv unplugged for a few months no tv won't turn on


The first thing to do is try to turn on the set with the remote and then when it doesn't respond go to the set and hold down the MENU and INPUT buttons at the same time until the power LED starts blinking a two sequence code. Like 2 - 4 or 1 - 2. The code will keep blinking for five or six times and stop. The blinking is the microprocessor telling you why the set is not working. We techs call that a self diagnostic function. Which this set has. Just repost your findings.

No Picture on KDP65XBR2


You have a shorted blue CRT (picture tube) the lines you saw are called retrace lines and when you can see them, there's either a mis-adjustment of the screen settings to the CRTs or a circuit malfunction or in your case, a bad picture tube. If your TV's serial number starts off with 90..... then you have the defective CRTs Sony put in hundreds of thousands of their projection TVs from late 2001 thru 2003. They made a very poor attempt to resolve customer complaints for a short period of time but now they have left many consumers hanging because they claim they have no more of these CRTs left.

Also, regarding your Circuit City wrranty. Don't give up. These warranties are held by third party insurers mainly G.E Extended Warranties who are stalling for time until a bankruptsy judge forces them to take care of their customers. Contact your state's attorney general to complain and get info on how this will be resolved.

Good Luck!

TV on/off


How long is your TV on before it turns off? Check the fans and make sure they are all working. The TV may be shutting off due to overheating if a fan quit working.

If you think the lamp is still good maybe try replacing the lamp ballast.

HDTV problem-keeps turning off on initial power up


The fact that the set works after a while suggests that there are bad connections that the heat "fixes". If you can solder, open up the set and resolder any connections that appear grainy or have rings. That should resolve it unless there is a component that is starting to fail. Update this if the soldering does not fix it.

TV keeps turning off.


could be a couple of things
first i would guess to be convergance ic then IC831S (STR-X6456).and could be loose connection.
you could try this to narrow it down, purchase a can of freeze at radio shock and spray it on these ic one at a time see if it stays on longer or just replace them
