    Hit power button, light turns green and set tries to go on three times and fails each time and then totally shuts down, as if going into a safe mode.

    Same TV, same problem. Turned it on the other day and it powered up. Turned it off for a few minutes and when I tried to turn it on again, the light blinks slowly three times then shuts down.

    Just so you know, I replaced the flyback in mine. About a week later, this problem started just like listed above. Push power on the remote, power light flashes three times, then shuts down. If you do this for about 10 minutes, the TV will eventually turn on. I don't know whether I got a bad flyback, or if I needed to replace the cap as well.

Thanks to the folks here who helped, I was able to replace the flyback and the CP150 capacitor and the TV is now working fine. Hurray!

    I forgot to mention. I have a couple of extra CP150 2200uf 16v capacitors if anyone needs one. I had trouble finding them locally so I bought a small lot of them online.

I WOULD JUST ABOUT BET THE CP 150 CAPICTOR IS BAD ON THE FLYBACK BOARD,IT IS A 2200UF 16 VOLT CAP.IF IT IS ROUNDED ON THE TOP END IT IS BAD.

    I WOULD REPLACE THE CP 150 CAPICTOR,ITS CHEAP OR JUST PULL ONE OUT OF A OLD TUBE TV.AND IF THAT DONT WORK THEN BY THE FLYBACK,THEY RUN ABOUT 60$

Rca d52w20 blinks 3 times, wont turn on


The set has a three strikes and you are out rule---tries to come on three times and then if fails, shuts down.

A short exists inside the set.

I have rca tv model#hd52w67 when i turn it on the power light blinks on & off about three times then cuts off


This is what RCA (Thompson) calls the three strikes and you are out.

If a problem: set will attempt to turn on 3 times and then go into shutdown which indicates a short somewhere.

It will require a shop repair as this set is not usually repairable in the home.

Let me know if you have questions.
