Question about RCA D52W20 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
Hi, well if you were a TV service man then like me you understand the enormity of the task ahead. RPTV's are just the hardest ones to service,as you most likely remember.
Before you can even contemplate attempting repair one MUST obtain a service manual.
Your problem, has to do with your PSU, and/or something causerie it to be Shut Down, I would also think that the problem is Thermal too. So you maybe able to find your faulty components by using Freeze spray, on suspected components.
We call the problem you are having a Hic-upping Power Supply. This is usually caused by a component, that works, initially, until it heats up, then it fails, then, because the power is removed, it cools down, and the set then powers on again, the components heats up, and it shuts down, this cycle is repeated, over and over, until it fails completely, usually. Sometimes it will even go for a bit, and then fail.
using the freeze spray when you chill the correct component, the "Fault" will clear, and stay clear until the suspect component heats up again, so this is well worth a try.
Another thing to remember is , Are your Voltages correct, you MUST check all voltages against the service manual reference voltages, checking these and making them correct will usually clear the fault.
If you find the DIY'ing isn't the way to go. Then please contact an RCA head or local office and ask them for a referral to an authorised service center, when there ask them for a "Quote" before allowing any repair work to commence, this way you can make an informed decision as to what to do, repair or replace.

your TV is having a power problem. The power supply board is defective that's why the TV won't power up. Its receiving power but it cannot transfer the current to the necessary part of the TV because a capacitor, diode, etc may have been faulty. Until these bad components are replaced, the TV might not come on.
If you know about TV repairers, I would suggest that you open the TV and read the power board/panel with a meter, detect the bad component and replace it. Take note that TV stores a lot of current that can shock, so leave the TV for a while before you open it.
If you don't know about TV repairers, take the TV to the nearest repairman to fix the fault for you.
