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

1 Answer

19, signal 19, 19, what is it trying to tell me?????

No, as soon as it is plugged in it blinks 19, I've seen many posts with this same signal and again, why is it so difficult to find out what 19 is telling me. I am an electronics engineer so I can take this tv apart and put it back together with a schematic and all I get out of RCA is verify tv is plugged in, are there any other appliances plugged into same outlet. 19 all I need to know is what does 19 mean, what part do I need to replace???

    Wow, yeah invalid chassis certainly doesn't make sense, Nope have not touched inside this tv, before unplugging it the picture would try to start up and get to the size of about a 13"diagnal then shut right down, the 19 started after unplugging it for a couple of minutes, after plugging it back in no picture trying to start up, just flashing me a 1 and 9. The 19 flashes the moment of plugging the tv in, even power button does nothing to change the flashing.

    can anyone tell me what code 19 means on rca chassis itc222 ????? If the tv is left unpluged for 2 to 3 days, and I go to hit the power button , the tv will come on and have no problems at all..once i turn it off and try to turn it back on regardless of interval betwwen the time i turn it on and then turned it off it will not come again, unless i unplug it and leave it that way for about 2 to 3 days.. I was told at that it probably was a picture tube.. So i disconected 1 tube at a time to see if that would resolve the problem, and of course it did not.. That code must have some meaning or does it ? Very fustrating problem..anyone that could tell me what code 19 means would be greatly appreciated.. Thanks in advance

    RCA/Dish HD34-310 with ITC222 If I turn my set off and allow it to cool, It won't come back on until, perhaps several weeks of pressing the ON button, when I think about it. It will attempt to power up 3 times, then can't try again for several minutes. During an attempt, if I press and hold for seveal seconds, I will get a Trouble Code 19. I will try unplugging for 2-3 days, as suggested. It sounds to me like a cold solder joint, perhaps in the power supply section. I haven't had my hands in a TV for years and these newer chassis are a bit attemidating.

The only error code 19 for the ITC222 chassis listed from RCA/Thomson for 19 is invalid chassis detected. Which doesnt make sense unless you have replaced a PCB with a wrong part number.

2000 buick lesabre Dash and turn signals not working.

I would think because your wipers don't work as well it could be your multi-function switch. (turn signal arm) The only other thing I would have recomended before hearing that your windshild wipers didn't work would have been your turn signal flasher. You may still want to try replacing that before anything elese. It will only cost you a few bucks and is located under your dash on the driver side. Near your OBDII plug. If your cruise control dosen't work as well, I would believe strongly that it is your multi-function switch.

Why my pc presario x1000 power and lamp lights blink and the batteries can not be on my pc

I fix these laptops as a side business and sell refurbished ones on ebay...I've seen the problem you describe but I'd need to know more about how fast they are blinking, etc. When all the lights flash about 2-3 times per second, I've found it to be a motherboard issue normally caused by a faulty power jack. That can be fixed but it means disassembling the complete laptop down to the motherboard and either re-soldering or replacing the jack. If you have access to a charged battery, disconnect the AC adapter and try to get it to boot cleanly from the battery. This will tell you if the problem is at the jack or someplace else. Post your results and we'll go from here.

Why is my hp 6730b laptop keeps on blinking as soon as i switch it on?

Which lights are blinking, or is it the monitor?
I've seen this happen on the battery charge indicator when a battery is at the end of its life, because it cannot take and hold a charge, so the charging circuit keeps cycling on and off continuously.
If it's a different light, it all depends on which light is blinking.

The left turn signal works intermittently and when it does blink it blinks twice as fast as the other one.

Check all the bulbs in the faulty side (front and rear), one of them must be the wrong type for application. Different blinking speed is the way of the system to tell you that something is not right. It only stops blinking if the bulb is burned out. I have seen that the most common problem is in the rear lights, using a stop light bulb ( two contacts) in the turn signal socket.
