I have an RCA D52W20. I acquired it for free from a local freecycle because it was dead and they gave up on repair. I called around to get an estimate of $300 to fix it. After a lot of research regarding the issue, I bought a flyback from partstore.com for this exact model for $60 including shipping. With good soldering skills and a half hour later, this beauty came to life! I did take precautions through out the whole project since I didn't have a high voltage discharging wand. But since this thing hasn't worked for years, the likely hood of getting shocked was less likely. I feel glad that I saved yet another tv with environmentally harmful chemicals from the landfill. May others out there be inspired to research and repair electronics to keep them out of the landfill.

First, I would suggest listing it on Craigslist or your local Freecycle if it's determined that you can't fix it. Generally, someone out there can at least scrap it out for parts or recyclable materials.
Now, to the original question. Was it working prior to hooking it to the VCR to begin with? Or did it stop working before you tried hooking it to the VCR?
There are multiple things that could be wrong, the worst one being that something burned out inside the power supply in the TV. Generally, if that happens, the replacement part is higher than buying a new TV, unfortunately. You could search you local yellow pages (physically or online) to find a repair shop, and call them for advice. They will often tell you whether or not something is worth fixing or not, or at least give you a price estimate, and you could decide whether it's worth it.
If it's ruined, I would definitely suggest listing it on Craigslist or Freecycle, and leave it out on the curb or in your parking lot, where whoever wants it need never meet you in person.

I've freecycled a will making CD, beads and an organizer. So far I have not received anything. I'm trying to get rid of stuff.
The main objective of FreeCycle is to reduce trash, so keep that in mind if you ask for items.
sounds like the sceen is dead, if you are receiving nothing on screen, then it sounds like either a component and/or screen is gone... however, check the tv input to make sure it wasnt acidentally switched to an input channel with nothing selected... if that does not work, call local tv repair or mfg customer service tech. if under warranty, have repaired or replaced. without physically seeing tv, it is hard to diagnose issue outside of information given. could be simple board replacement or could be screen.. but check input first, if a dvd player plays, then it could be just component or input on wrong selection
No,Ur tv under a year old?Still under warrenty?Call RCA for warrenty repair.This problems is a major problems for the tv.The Tuner board it dead,must be replaced it cost u at lest $200 for a refurbish Tuner board.And u have to do the labors ur self.
Unfortunately, the Power Supply has spat the dummy out. It is giving enough power to light the LED but not enough to run the set. To replace it will probably cost more than buying a new set. But ask around your local repairers for a price before you make any decisions...
dear friend your tv has a defective fly-back transformer 99 times out of 100 that is your problem.
get the model number and call your local electronics parts distribuitor to see if they have it, if not call tritronics 1800-638-3328 they probably have it and is not too expensive.less than $25.00.now when you get here is the million dollar question can you do it yourself? if you can't call the repairman and by having the fly-back that will decrese the cost of the repair, is just the labor.
I have not had the TV repaired. since the local repair shop gave me a quote of almost $700.00 to repair. I only paid a little more than that for the TV new. I will just purchase a new TV.
I did not follow through with my request to you because I found several web sites that suggested not to repair because it is just not worth it.
