    I have the same problem with rca d52w20. I press power and it comes on then shuts off. It will then try to turn on 2 more times before shutting off. I then have to wait like 10 minutes before trying to turn on because when i hit power after it (cycles) it will not do anything. It also just loses its picture while were watching and just starts flickering. This piece of **** is just under three years old and was sitting in the basement practically unused for a year and a half. Wht a waste 0f 1100 dollars. RCA Blowz

    TV turns green power light on for the count of 10 off for the count of 4 on count of ten off count of 4 on count of 10 then off. Power green light flashes when you try to power down while green light is on. You can repeat after 3-4 minutes.

    When I turn on the power, the light blinks for a few seconds and goes dead. If I try a few times, it sounds like it wants to turn on but the light goes dead again. We bought this in 2005, and we already have problems. Not good! I'd like to fix this myself....any suggestions?

    I PRESS THE POWER BUTTON AND A FEW SECONDS AFTER THE TV GOES OFF

  • jputman82297 Feb 22, 2009

    TV started shutting off by it self, got progressivly worse! Finally would not come on at all Power light just blinks three times and you can hear a high pitch whistle sound each time the light comes on. Was woundering if replacing the circut board and flyback would solve the problem? I can get both for about $200.00 and it would be worth fixing. Any suggestions would be appreciated>

  • klnjdavis Apr 28, 2009

    hit the power button, the green lite comes on for about 2 seconds and goes off ( faint click inside the tv) about 3 seconds later the lite comes back on but only for a couple seconds ( faint click inside tv), then you can press button and nothing happens for about 2 to 3 min, then you can start over.

Tv will not turn on. green lite for 4 secs, 3 times, then off. D52W20


It could be several issues from a bag power supply, the TV is connected to a power strip with several other components hooked up (DVD, Sound System, Xbox, etc.).

Try connecting to the wall directly and see if it now starts up.

52" RCA HD capable projection tv won't stay on!


This set has a processor that is telling the set there is a safety problem and shut the set down. this could be one of about 35 different cuiricts. Are there any sounds clicking chirping? An rca technician have special computer interfaces that can read errors generated by the processor that can help in determining what is wrong with your set.
