Question about RCA D52W136D 52 in. TV/DVD Combo

1 Answer

We have rca scenium high def projection tv model # D52W136D. it is stuck in dvd mode and i cannot get it back into tv mode. the dvd player (built into the tv) has not worked for months, and today my son tried to have the dvd player open by just pressing the open button on the front panel of the tv. since then the tv won't go back in tv mode, the remote works to turn the tv on or off, but that's it. i have changed the remote batteries. i can't get any of the buttons on the front panel of the tv to work either, except the on button.

It sounds like the open button has either been stuck in the 'pressed' position (examine it closely to see if a corner is stuck or if it still appears to return to it regular position when released) which you may be able to reseat by wiggling it while pressing it, or the switch (button) has been physically damaged so that even though the action allows it to 'pop up', the contacts inside remain in a closed state.

If the button is now damaged and not letting the TV's 'brains' know when any other button is pushed, there is not much you can do besides having it serviced and replacing parts until functionality is returned.

The one, free troubleshooting step you can try is to simply unplug the unit for 10 minutes or so.

For many electronic devices, a deep power-down will force a hard-reset of the brains inside. This can clear up erratic behavior on many devices. You dvd won't magically start working, but you may find that while your TV has lost all setup programming (channels, sources, etc), it ought to startup in TV mode at least rather than DVD mode.

I hope that helps.

My GE universal remote for RCA Scenium tv doesn't work the DVD part


If this is a combo unit (TV with DVD built in) you need the original remote---Universals almost always are missing key features the original remote had as most companies have someone else make the unit and put their name on it.

RCA Scenium D34W1350 with built in DVD player cannot reconize a DVD after it is inserted into place. Help me with this.


The DVD unit probably needs to be replaced. I am not sure you will be able to obtain one or if you will have to go through a RCA Auth. Repair Facility. The DVD units are not difficult to replace if you can get one.
Sorry I am not able to help more.
