Question about RCA P52926 52" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

I have a RCA Rear Projection HDTV I bought new in 2006. Today, our power to our house went out for 2 hours, then once it came back on, the TV will not work. When we use the on button on the TV, it lights up for approx. 30 seconds, never gets a picture, then the TV shuts down. Up until this power outage, it'd worked fine. Any ideas on what to do? Thanks for your help!

The image processor was fried by the power surge. The tv can be repaired, most likely all it needs is a new image board. But to certify that the tv must be opened and the tv tested. If you don't have any experience in electronics then it's time for a repair man. If you decide to try to fix it yourself start by testing the power source, the 12 and 5 volts lines are the ones that failed here, and replace the dead components - most likely the transistors and the rectifiers are the ones who failed.

    Thanks for your info! Do you know about how much a new image board runs? And no, I think scary things would happen if I tried repairing it myself! lol!

Tv pops on and off suddenly after viewing for about 10 to 15 mins. this problem becomes progressively worst after prolonged viewing. as of today there is absolutely no picture and or sound.


Your symptoms exactly match this scenario: a component involved in picture & sound was failing intermittently, then progressed to a hard failure.

My suspect: a power capacitor in the power supply. They sometimes fail this way - when the dielectric breaks down completely, then the power supply fails, causing no pic/sound.

Fix: replace power supply (or the specific capacitor, if you can determine which one died).

My RCA HDTV D52W23 Will not Turn On!!


Trying installing a new power supply. This is the main problem with tv's with the issue. But if you just bought it I would try to get my money back from where I bought it from. Installing a power supply for a tv is not that hard at all.

Tv popped and picture went out


im srry to tell you that you picture tube blew in you tv this can happen from many things as simple as a defective one .. to a bad power surge in your house ... if it is under warranty they will fix free of charge .. if not you'll have to get a new tv .. a new tv in most cases is cheaper then tryin to just by the tube .. oh and if its not under warranty .. you could always just say it surged and claim it on you home owners insurance =]

My RCA Bigscreen HDTV will not turn on.


Thats either the flyback or the HV splitter. If the sound is coming from the rear left side its the flyback. If its coming from the front of the set its the HV splitter. They are both easy to replace. I will post a link where you can get replacements with instructions if you would like.
