Question about RCA L26WD26D 26 in. LCD TV

1 Answer

RCA L26WD26D comes on by itself

My RCA unit has developed a problem where the tv just comes on by itself after a few hours of sitting idle. The problem started when I was on vacation and we returned to find the unit on. I dismissed the problem until the unit kept coming on during the night and through the next day. I now have to unplug the unit to get any sleep. This is unusual? any ideas?

    I actually thought the same thing, but I am so far away from anyone else, it must be a cb radio or something. I even took the batteries out of the remote one night and it still just kept coming on after I would shut it down from the button on the unit. It is a wierd problem!

Just a thought but maybe you are picking up a stray signal from someone else's remote or somebody is just plain messing with you. Try covering the sensor for the remote with a piece of paper or tape.

I have the RCA model L26WD26D. There are colored lines running thru it which are red, green, and blue. What is the problem?

More often then not a decoder board would be your issue here. the decoder board or AKA tuner/decoder puts the signals on your lcd display. When they give up on doing that you get these nice stripes on your lcd display. Now if it where the screen itself you would have "dead pixels" or stuck pixels , witch is not the case here.

What you need to do is ether bring it to a TV repair shop or try and get the part and do it yourself. What we are talking here is do it yourself. If you not into that then your going to need a repair shop its going to cost about 2 3rds or more of what the tv is worth to fix, So this is where you might want to consider your options.

Thanks for using I do wish you best of luck with your issue and please do be considerate and leave feedback and a rating.

Power Issue:

I would buy a replacement power supply unit from
That should take care of the issue. I have seen some that will have a backlight inverter problem and so you could replace them both and you should be ok.

Dvd stuck in RCA widescreen tv

There are two things you can try to correct this problem on your TV/DVD combo unit:
  • If you're using the remote control, press the DVD/TV button first to make sure the remote control is in TV mode.
  • If you're trying to use the buttons on the front of the unit, unplug the TV/DVD for two minutes, and then plug it back in. Press the ON/OFF button and try again.

My RCA flat screen won't come on, but keeps making popping sounds every few seconds. Ideas?

Any indicator light at all? It sound like the main power supply could have gone out, that is first place to look for.

Tv wont come on

Don't mean to state the obvious but have you tried changing the fuse? There might also be some sort of internal protection device (fuse/circuit-breaker) that may need replacing/resetting.

Rca l26wd26d does not stay on

I had a similar problem with my Phillips 42 in. LCD HD TV.

Here's the problem. The Power Supply Board. I opened my TV up(warranty was up of course) and found several bad capacitors. Phillips and several other companies were sold capacitors that although were highly rated failed within 5 years because of a lack of preservatives. All sorts of electronic equipment is now being effected due to these defective capacitors.
1. Take it in and have it fixed
2. Open it up, check the board for faulty capacitors(bulged or leaking) Buy a new Power supply board and install it.
3. Remove PSB, remove faulty capacitors and replace with compatible new ones.

Hope this helps
