My rca flatscreen turned off suddenly. now it turns on (the light goes on) but nothing happens.


You need to check the output voltages of the power supply to see which one goes off. It may be due to short circuits some where, if otherwise,
Your power supply board is dead, u know basic electronics' and soldering? Most of the times, the power supply board just have dead leakages gases capacitors.These capacitors always bulges up on it top,or puff up on it top.Replaced these gases leakages capacitors will get your TV power stable,and work again.Or tries websites like, to buy a whole refurbish power supply board for the replacement.
I hope this will help in solving the problem...

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.

Hello shainer,
It sounds like you have a power supply problem, check the fuses on the AC board and the check the voltages on the main PS board.
I hope this helps.
