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

1 Answer

The on off switch LED light goes on and off three times when attempting to turn on the television. I tried replacing the three cap (114,120,150) but still have the same problem (all three capacitors looked ok although there was another that was blown and replaced). What else could be causing this problem? Thanks

    Not yet. Local repair guy can't test the flyback (I live in the Caribbean, he doesn't have the equipment). Have to decide whether to ship out the board to the US for repair or take a chance and order the part.

The flyback transformer is famous for failing on that model also.

    Did you get it fix, and how?

  • bhagan432 Nov 07, 2010

    Ok thanks. Will the flyback necessarily show external signs of failure?

My Dish 5.0 IR remote won't program to my new TV, it's an Emerson, the model number on the back is- LC320EMXF. I've tried holding the TV button until all the top lights flashed and then...

You were attempting to perform a power scan initially. The second procedure is manually attempting to address the remote to your TV. I will give you the procedures again so you can try one more time. Emerson TV is one brand we have a low percentage of success getting our remotes to work. If it still doesn't work, we could try replacing the remote.

TV code: 623, 667, 666, 233, 516, 537, 544, 642, 655, 699, 000, 999, 888, and 720.

Remotes: Basic (Television Only)
  1. Turn the Television On.
  2. Press and hold the clear TV button for six seconds until the LED flashes.
  3. Enter the three-digit code using the buttons on the number pad.
  4. Press #. Note: The LED will flash three times.
  5. Test functionality with the TV.
  6. Return to Step 2 if the remote is not able to turn the TV On/Off, change the volume and mute the television.
Remote Power Scan: Basic Remote (Television Only)
  1. Turn the Television On.
  2. Press and hold the clear TV button for six seconds until the LED flashes.
  3. Press and release the red TV Power button.
  4. Press and release the Up or Down Arrow on the remote until the television turns off once every second.
  5. After the television turns off, press and release the # button.
  6. Test functionality with the TV.
  7. Return to Step 2 if the remote is not able to turn the TV On/Off, change the volume and mute the television.

My Sony KDF-50WE655 does not turn on. Only the standby LED Flashes several times and then goes steady green, but the lamp light remains off.


Hello
You just count the number of blinks of the standby light before it goes out to green. In sony sets this blinking count ic critical for us to locate the faulty stage. You just count it after switch it Off by Power switch and Switch it On by the power switch at the front of the TV, for at least three or four times, and make sure abut the number of blinks, and report it to me. Ok

Installing a 7 day digital wall timer


Swylite LST100 timer has 4 wires. Red, Blue, Black, White
Timer has more wires than wall switch because timer has electric clock inside. And with + series Swylite timer, it also has led bulb that needs power.

Timer can replace ordinary on-off switch
-On-off switch has 2 screws, so 2 wires (plus ground wire) connect to on-off switch
-Three of the four timer wires are used when replacing on-off switch
-Red wire is not used, it is capped off

Timer can replace 3-way switch
-Three way switch has 3 screws, so 3 wires (plus ground wire) connect to 3-way switch
-One of the screws on 3-way switch is colored dark (it is crucial to identify the wire that comes off dark screw so timer can be wired correctly)

Lets replace on-off switch see diagram
Timer black goes to Hot wire
Timer blue goes to Load (light, fan, motor)
Timer white goes to Neutral
Timer red is capped off.

How to check which wire is Hot, Neutral and Load
Switch you are replacing has 2 wires > one is Hot, the other goes to Load
Remove these two wires. Separate wires so you can test. Turn on power. Tape tester leads to wood sticks so hands are away from power. Test each wire to bare copper wire.
When tester lights up >> that is Hot wire >> please connect this wire to Timer black wire
The other wire goes to Load >> please connect this wire to Timer blue wire.
Now test for Neutral. Test Hot wire to other wires inside box. Neutral should be white. When tester lights up, that is Neutral. Please connect Timer white wire to neutral. IF YOU DO NOT have a neutral, you can connect Timer white to bare ground wire until you have time to drop a Neutral into the box.

Replace a 3-way switch see diagram
Three-way switch has 3 wires.
Identify which wire connects to Dark screw on switch >> and then please connect this wire to Timer Black wire.
Timer white wire connects to Neutral
Timer blue and red wires connect to other two wires that came off switch ... they connect to either one.

Blue light blinks three times


very common issue for these sets! p50h401 and p50s601 are almost the same.

for more info on this set please check out http://www.hometheatershack.com/forums/hitachi/38229-hitachi-p50h401-led-flashes-3-times.html
if will tell you how to trouble shoot this tv. these tv's are known for two caps in the power supply to go bad and they need replaced then you have to test the sdr buffer boards if they are bad you need replacement boards or you can send them off to be repaired.( Repairing the buffer boards is a lot less then replacing them ) the link for the repair guy is on the page. this guy also sells the repair on ebay but if you contact him directly i beleave the price is lower. just tell him you were send over by home theater shack.

Remove the power supply and replace the three (3) capacitors soldered to it. They will be rated at something in the neighbrohood of 16v. Replace them with larger capacitors, something in the neighborhood of 35v.

Mine has the same problem, orange LED with humming sound coming from the speakers etc.


Someone brought one to me to look at..same problem. Checked power supply (easy to check, take off bottom cover and measure voltages on connector. standard 5, 3.3, and 12v outputs going to maine board.) Power supply was fine. took out main board and noticed several 100uf,16v caps that seemed to be bloated. replaced them and the unit turns on. Only thing i'm not sure about is the time it takes to initially turn on. when you first turn on main switch in back, the front led flashes green for about a minute then the LCD comes on and says "loading" which takes about 2-3 minutes, then the unit goes into standby mode (red Led) the unit will turn right on and off again quickly as long as the main switch in the back is not turned off and on again. Is it normal for it to intially take so long to boot? I do not know the normal operation as this is the first i attempted to repair.

Led lights flashing


replace the lamp. the lamps basicly have 3000 hours before they go, and also depends on the number of times the unit is turned on and off which greatly lessens the life of the lamp.
