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

1 Answer

RCA 52inch will not remain on...

In the last couple of months my television would turn off on its own, all I would need to do is turn it back on and it would work fine. Yesterday it turned off again on its own and when I attempted to turn it back on it would not. The green light would come on for about three seconds (did not blink, it was solid), I heard noises like static and a clicking sound, and then the tv would turn off. This continues to happen every time I attempt to turn it on agian. I have unplugged the tv for about 1 minute and plugged it back in and got the same result. Also you should know that I have other electronics plugged into the same outlet and they still work so its not the connection.

    I have the exact same problem only mine has been shutting itself off for over a year now with no other problems. Then today it wouldn't come back on when I pushed the power button. Also there is a beeping noise coming from the back of the TV. Took the back board off the TV, blew out the dust (alot of dust as its 5 years old), and couldn't see a visible problem. Or where the problem was coming from. Hate to have to spend alot of money on this TV, maybe I will just get a Plasma of same size or Projection Screen. This is the year for HD anyway and this TV is not compatible for that or Blu Ray. Maybe its time for a change. Besides it's pretty hard to get a TV that size in a car to go get fixed.

Just after your cord goes into your tv there is a box that regulates the power supply the tv acctually gets (helps with surges and the like) it maybe that this part is faulty and needas replacing. Have had this problem befor and it turned out that was it. Very expencive to fix though.

My 52inch floor model turns on then immediately turns off? rca hdtv


Thats usually caused by failed or cracked solder on the flybacks connections to the deflection board. I would check the solder first if that doesnt solve the issue you may need to replace the deflection board.
