Question about RCA D52W20 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Wont turn on

My tv just wont turn on. didnt have any problems with it, then all of a sudden went to turn it on and there is no response. did the basic troubleshooting, power is coming to the tv.

I have a RCA 52 inch HDTV ready monitor D52W20. when I push the power button the tv power light comes on green then goes off. it does this 3 times and then stays off. On a rare occasion it will come on as if nothing is wrong. But if I turn it off again it will not come back on. I checked the fuse next to where the power cord meets the board and it was not blown.

    Very same problem, began with intermittent "blips" usually first thing in the morning, small sound interruption, progressing to momentary picture interruption, finally shutting down with an audilble "sput" sound. It may try 3 times to restart, then gives up. May work at a later time as if there is nothing wrong.

    I'm having the same problem. Turned it off the other morning and when I went to turn on later that day the green light comes on then goes off then comes on again and goes off again but the tv never shows a picture.

Check the solder connections on the flyback and also right next to the flyback there is a small white coil with copper wrapped around it that will sometimes arch causing the solder to need re-soldering

Do you mean replace the front plastic screen. Are you sure you want to? This screen is $500+ if you can still get one. A tech may have to come in and remove the bezel to insert the screen (some remove fairly easy...) You can get a pretty nice LCD TV for $700.

NO AUDIO Mitsubishi TV Model WD65737

Sounds like the audio circuit portion of your tv went out. You could ask Mitsubishi for a list of authorized Mitsubishi service centers in your area. It may be expensive to have it shipped, but it might be cheaper than buying another one.
