Question about RCA D52W19 52" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer


My original problem was the set was not powering on the greenlight was flashing 3 times and then going off. I have replaced the cp150 capacitor and the flyback. It worked after the replacement for 1 day. Now the green power light comes on for about 10 sec and it just goes off, the screen or sound never comes on. I have checked all of the other caps and none are bad. if anyone knows what I need to replace next or any helpful info please let me know.

    No I have not replaced it. Where is it located on the board and I will order and replace it. I appreciate your help.

  • mritravis Aug 02, 2008

    Thank you for you help I will order the part today and let you know if that fixes it.

    I replaced the HOT transistor today and it did not fix my problem. The set came on like it was fixed and when I turned it off it will not come back on. The power light will come on once after it is plugged in but it just goes off after about 10 sec still. The power light will only come on once then you have to unplug for it to come on again.
    All suggestions are appreciated. I don't want to let it beat me..

    I have a RCA D56W 56 in. Rear projection Television. I'm having the same problems as describes by Travis. I've been told that the solution to this problem is the replacement of the High Voltage board, but upon reading Travis's account it seams that it is only part of a bigger problem. Is this so? please e-mail me.

    Well today I unplugged like you said and I resoldered a couple of connections just in case and I then reseated all cables. and it came on for about 5 minutes and when i turned it off it would not come back on. It just gave the power light for about 10 secs and that is it. I took the board out again and rechecked it again and it did the same thing. Do you think there could be another bad cap somewhere. No others look bulged or leaking. I am willing to try anything. I just don't want to give up. I did press on the board like you said and it would not come on.

    It is located in front of the flyback to the left its on a large aluminum heat sink with fins on it. Its a 2SC5588 transistor

    It almost has to be solder related or the ribbon cables not seating correctly. Heres how you can tell. Unplug the set then press in the middle of the board where the flyback is in a couple of spots especially near the flyback then plug it in and try to power it up.

RCA r52wh77 not powering on

common issues include bad connections at and around the flyback

bad flyback is not unknown and or shorted parts on same board.

High Voltage Splitter with can include charred part near Flyback.

set has the 3 strikes rule---it will attempt to power up three times and if fails shuts down.

Not easy sets to work on as most parts are RCA only.

Do you think that yesterdays digtal signal could have damaged my tv. when I came from work my TV did not want to turn on.

No the switch over wouldnt affect your set from powering on. Its more likely that the flyback and CP150 and CP114 need replacement if the led will flash 3 times then go out when the power is pressed.

I would try replacing CP150 , CP114 and also CP120 as those three capacitors have been known too fail which will prevent the set from powering up.
