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

No juice. What's up people!?! So, got a RCA D52W20... when turning on set.. power green light comes on three seperate times. All 3 seem to be attempts at the TV powering up but nothing happens. What say the masses?

    Thanks for the QUICK responses. I'm not a "fix 'em" up kinda guy, unfortunately! Can a repair shop in my area fix the problem "in house" or will I expect that they will want to take the tv to their respective place of business?

    Thanks again for all the feedback. I had a repair guy out from a local company today and he fixed the problem. He said it was a manufactoring error by the engineering team of RCA. Something in the power supply area. He said he replaced "it" with the part that should've been there all along. I got home as he was finishing up and did see a soldering iron.. so maybe ahhsoo69 had it from the get-go. He charged me $280 for an hour's worth of work and the part. As long as the thing works another 4 years.. I'd say it's well worth it.

There are many, many, many, things that can cause this. I even just discovered a new at this time, on a set I have here in my shop. However, the most comond problem is in the horizontal output section. This is not the kind of problem for a cunsomer. You need to take it to a repair shop. You can also listen (with your ear to the bottom, back of the set) to the set when you turn it on to see if you can here a small squeal or staticy sound the 3 times it tries to come on. If it dose the horizontal output and/or flyback transformer is bad (comond problem).
