RCA D52W14 52" rear projection tv

When the TV comes on the little green light on the off and on button lights up and goes off three times, then nothing. We just left it on until a power failure, and now it does this and will not come on at all. What could it be?

    I am good with a/c repairs, appliance repairs, etc. Someone told me they thought it was called a flyback because it knocked them back five feet once. How easy is this to get the **** knocked out of you with it?

    About a week ago, the power went out for about an hour but when the power came back on, the tv would not. I press the power button and it stays on for 5 seconds then goes out...comes on again for another five seconds and goes out. It does this 3 times then finally dies. I have checked the fuses and they were ok so I want to try and replace the flyback transformer but don't how to remove it. Thanks

    I have the same problem with my D52W20 52". I started having problems with it trying to power up. I left it on and just turned the cable box off until I had the power go off in the house and now when I push the power button, the green light comes on for a couple of seconds and then goes off. Does this three times, then stays off. I hear a clicking sound as it's doing this.

3 blinks means the flyback needs replacing. very easy repair. You can get a flyback at the following link for under 50.00 with free shipping and free tech support so you can install it yourself. You need flyback 259296 here is the link.

    Its only dangerous when its operating. Picture tubes hold a chatge, the flyback doesnt. If you get a replacement through that link I posted they will explain how to get the old one out and install the new one.

    Glad you reconfirmed. Your model use flyback 265409 instead of the 259296 they are the same basic flyback, but the 265409 sits closer to the board and thats what your model calls for they are both the same price, but order the 265409 and you will have the correct one.

TV trying to start then shut down 3 times, It means that there is an over loading condition. The most common things to go wrong are : flyback transformer, vertical deflection IC, also bad connections and horizontal retrace and Hor. Yoke coupling capacitors.

TV won't turn on even though it starts green, then goes off

Although my tv still does the "turn green and turn off" thing, I simply unplugged and repluggd the tv. After I did that, I pushed the "ON" button on the tv itself, unplugging and replugging the tv until it finally came on. I think the "instant warm-up" switch is going out.

Philips 42PF7320A blinks 3 times every time i hit the power button

The SSB is small self contained board that u connect your Antenna, and HDMI to. An error three is a communication error between the SSB and to Logic board ( located underneath the SSB on the back fo the plasma panel that is just below the power supply. U can check and see if u want to purchase a SSB for this TV. Is the 3blinking lights coming from the front of the TV. Also check the power supply and see how many times the green led blinks on the upper left of the power supply and let me know.
