Question about RCA P52926 52" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Sorry, here is the original post.

Comment by Nos8, posted on May 12, 2008 We have a RCA D52W26 HDTV. It worked fine one night, then would not turn on the next morning. There is no power. It is 2 years old. Any suggestions?
I guess you see a lot of must not have noticed the model number in there :) I got confused when you asked for the model number, because I though there was only one. As you can see from the original post we have no power. Any help would be greatly appreciated. My husband just wants to bue a new tv.....but this one is only 2 years old and hardly gets used, so for me it the principal of the stupid thing!!!

    No....there is nothing. Completely dead. Nothing lights on the screen or the power button.

  • Nos8 May 12, 2008

    If it is the fuse.....where would I get a new one? Do you have a part number? I will have my husband check when he gets home. Thank you.

  • Nos8 May 12, 2008

    How do I get to the chassis to check the fuse? Do I take it out of the tv?

    Thank you for your help!!!

    I have a RCA D52W6 that has this same problem. The led will flash 3 times slowly then go out but it makes a whistling sound three times at the same time. Do you think it needs a lamp?

When you press power does the led light at all? That chassis has been plagued with bad flyback causing dead sets sometimes the led will flash 3 times slowly then go out. Other times it will make a soft short hiss. Does your set exhibit any of these signs?

    I would check the fuse. it is located on the small narrow board that is farthest into the set on the right side of the chassis. Up towards the front of the set

    if its the fuse you will see the rating stamped on the end of the fuse. radio shack should have the replacement. Make sure the set is unplugged at least an hour before checking the fuse.

    No just remove the back cover and you will see the small rectangle board towards the front of the set on the right side you will see the fuse on the board just pull it out of the fuse holder

How to reset rca d52w26

Unplug the mains cord from AC mains wall socket, and wait for at least three minutes, and replug it again. that is the only way to reset this set's parameters to its original factory reset conditions.

If this does not help you, its memmory IC shoud be suspected. Replace it with same type and number. Its number is most important to note, when you buy a new one. OK.

I need to find a bulb for a D52W26

your model doesnt have a bulb like the DLP projection. Instead you have three CRTs ( picture tubes) one red, one green and one blue. If you respond to this same post with your symptoms I can assist with diagnosis.

Need solution


Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Your concern with an RCA D52W26 is when you attempt to turn it on, it powers up as indicated by the LED lights but they then power OFF a few seconds later? or it powers on then you get to see bright line(s) left to right, then the TV powers OFF? or it powers on but only bklinking LED lights? If yes on the last any sequence to the flashing/blinking?

Hope that this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
