Question about RCA P52937 52" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Tv turns off after it gets hot

My RCA tv comes on fine and works fine for maybe 5-10 minutes. Then it shuts off and comes back on for another 5 minutes. Then it seems to shut on and off, on and off and you can hear it popping and crackling in the back of the tv. If you let it cool off it will work again but the same thing happens. My set was manufactured in 2002.

RCA TV's of that vintage are known for having bad solder joints in the power supply stages and they become very remperature sensitive.

We have the RCA HD52w59 projection tv. The tv shuts itself off at different intervals. It takes approximately 1 minute to be able to turn the power button back on, however, I have to do that many times...


A problem in the deflection board. Could be a Cap. Resoldering the deflection board may take care of the problem. You need to call a TV man to do this kind of work.

Best of luck

RCA D52W20 TV powers on fine, then shuts itself off after 5 - 10 minutes. After 20-30 minutes, I can turn tv back on, but then shuts off again in 5 minutes.


it looks like the problem is in the 16v line..try to take it apart..and there's gonna be a 2200mf cap leaky.
that will solve your problem.

Working fine, then shut off.. won't come on, no power


A clogged air vent will cause the unit to overheat and not turn on.

TV wont turn on, makes buzzing noise and shuts off


I have two RCA HD52W59 TV's. I have had one for 3 years and one 4 years. The one I have had for 4 years is giving me the problem. Last week the tv turned off while watching it. It wouldnt come right back on. 10 minutes later we tried and it worked fine. the other night the kids were watching and it turned off and smelled like something burning. I tried turning it right back on and got no power at all. I tried to turn it on two days later and it made a buzzing noise and the green light went out. Never did get a picture, no powering up on the screen. Any ideas? Don't want to spend alot of money. Really loved the TV hope it isnt junk now. Better yet I hope the same thing doesnt happen to the other one I have.

TV turns off and on constantly.


this is the heat detection cicuit that detects when there is to much heat in the set , maybe cleaning it of dust, lint , ect.. will help

My RCA 52 inch was doing the same thing.  TV guy had me use a regular hair blower blowing very hot on the power supply board ( bottom left in back). After a few minutes the tv would come on.  He replaced 2 capacitors, charged me $100.00, plus the $95.00 service call, and is working fine now.  This was a month ago.  So far so good.  He only took the board to the shop, not the entire tv.  Hope this helps.
