Question about RCA L26WD26D 26 in. LCD TV

1 Answer

Power Issue: When pluged in, power indicator light turns red, so power is getting into the TV. Pressing power, however, causes the indicator light to blink on and off. The After about 3 blinks the TV will turn on, but not respond to any input. (Menu, Volume +,-, ect.)Then the TV will click off, and repeat the process 3 times and then turn itself off for good. Its not absurd to think something inside the TV is broken, or needs to be replaced, and I can try to do that myself, but I want to know what I'm looking for.

I would buy a replacement power supply unit from shopjimmy.com http://www.shopjimmy.com/rca-cef273a-power-supply-unit-no-wire.htm
That should take care of the issue. I have seen some that will have a backlight inverter problem and so you could replace them both and you should be ok.

This is exactly why I tell people that when your set isn't working, you have to have it properly diagnosed. Chances are you have a defective main board. The power indication is an indication that you have standby power. However, the power indicator is controlled by the main board. So it is likely that your power supply is fine but you have an issue with your main board. It is not likely that your replacement power supply is defective as well, but anything is possible. You will need to have the power supply tested. If you are handy with a multimeter, I can help you with that.

My 8yr. old ws-48511 TV boots up (green light blinks shortly then goes out) after being pluged in, but when you turn it on, the green light comes on then goes off. (will not power on).What is the problem?


When the set powers off after pressing power try pressing the menu and input buttons on the set both in together and hold for 6 seconds to see if the power indicator will blink a two digit blink code which repeats a few times indicating a specific error. Let me know the blink code if any.

Sony 3 lcd rear projection tv hd w/ wega gate. kdf-e42a10. tv will atempt to turn, shuts down, greem power light blinks 12 times on average. red standby light blinks 4 times. i replaced lamp [ xl 2400...


Hi,

The Standby/Power light of the TV blinks when there is any internal malfunction in the TV. The self-diagnostic function of the TV will cause the STANDBY light to blink or flash when the television detects an issue. The number of times the STANDBY light flashes corresponds to a specific issue.

Few examples are given below; some of the issues may be resolved without the need for service.
1 blink / 2 blinks / 5 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a power-related problem with your set.
3 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a power-related problem with your set. The set will need to be serviced to allow a technician to determine the specific issue that needs to be repaired. If the power light flashes three times in sequence in a Lamp TV, the lamp cover is not securely attached. Reattach the lamp cover to resolve this issue.
4 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a back light or lamp power problem.
6 blinks: - This indicates that there is some kind of audio problem with your set.
7 blinks: - This indicates that there is a temperature problem with your set. Please check to make sure that the air vents on the sides and back of the set are not blocked or clogged and there is adequate ventilation around the television. We recommend that you check and clean the vents periodically to make sure the set receives adequate air flow. If the problem continues, the set will need to be serviced.
8 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a video-related problem with your set. If the flash sequence is not listed above or the light continues to flash, follow the steps below to perform a power reset:
Try the following steps to check if the issue can be resolved.
Turn off the television.
Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.

If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.

If the issue continues to occur, service may be required.


Thanks for using Fixya.

My television does not display when I turn on the power, a small light in the switch blinks after a short time. Does this indicate a certain failure mode?


my tv, when turned on via remote or manually pressing the power button on tv does not turn on. The TV power light powers on red but makes a clicking sound as if if were turning itself off after power up. (clicks on then clicks off) Humm? What could the problem be? Is there a repair part that is needed? If so. what might that be and is there a schematic or some sort of diagram to show how this issue can be resolved?
