Question about Televison & Video

We have a RCA HD52W69D TV. The power button is flashing & there's no picture or sound. The button will flash 9 times, pause, then 5 times, pause, & repeats. Is that some sort of an error code? Any ideas? Please help..

There's a good chance you have failing electrolytic capacitors either in the power section or the inverter section or both.
Any caps in these sections that look bulged at the top, or bulged/leaking at the bottom need to be replaced.
If you repeatedly turn it on, eventually it may come on, but every time you turn it off, the TV will get harder and harder to start up until one day it just won't.
Sometimes you have to do the opposite to start it up and unplug it for 5 mins, then try.

If you aren't tech savvy, this unit needs to go in for repair.

If you are handy with a soldering iron and can identify the power supply and inverter / FM section for the backlights, an inexpensive handful of capacitors will likely fix you right up.
Match the capacitance on the capacitors. Go over voltage if you can, and still have them fit.
IE - it's not a bad idea to replace a 10V cap with a 16V or 25V or even a 50V, but don't replace a 680uF cap with a 500uF or a 1000uF (unless you are positive it's only doing ripple filtering).

Most of the caps that go are 10V 1000uF or 3300uF.

I found some great videos of the procedure (for different brand, but same issue) on youtube.

As you can see, this issue spans plasma TVs, as well as large and small LCD TVs and monitors.
The parts are cheap, and skill required is minimal.

Mitsubishi projection tv picture and sound turn off but the power button remains on with no picture or sound turn tv off real quick and then back on and works for 2 mins then turns off again what could be...


Here's the basic troubleshooting:

  1. Make sure that no front panel buttons are inadvertently stuck in an "engaged" position.
  2. Disconnect ALL devices from the TV.
  3. Press the SYSTEM RESET button and hold for 10 seconds. Proceed if the problem still exist.
  4. Press and hold POWER and MENU buttons simultaneously for 20 seconds. Proceed if the problem still exist.
  5. Unplug the TV from it's power source for various times, ranging between 5 minutes and 24 hours.
  6. If it still shuts down, press the DEVICE and MENU buttons on the front panel simultaneously and hold it for 5 seconds to activate the Error Code Operational Check. The status LED indicator will then flash denoting a two digit code.
  7. Count the number of flashes then pauses for about a half second then flashes again. The first number of flashes indicates the first digit of the error code and the second number of flashes indicates the second digit of the code. For example, if the error code is "35", the LED will flash 3 times, pauses, then flashes 5 times. The error code is repeated a total of 5 times.
Please let me know the code you got and I'll tell where the problem lies and how to fix it.

Flashes/blinks 9 then 5 won't turn on.


Check the CRTs . That model was notorious for laser like cuts right around the neck by the yoke. I just had one today doing the same thing. The CRTs are no longer available so the set is scrap. I hope that's not your case. Let me know.

RCA HDTV #D61W20, CHASSIS ITC222, Power button flashing 1, pause, 9. Possible error code 19, anyone know what this means


This is not a friendly chasis, the only easy fix that you might check on the power supply board and the left side (looking from the back) 3 capacitor (220,330,and 2200uf 16V) have the top pop up. Other than that poping, arcing noise, burn smell when first start up is bad york, Flyback Transformer and even the cooling leak for those tubes you will need professional TV repair man. Those TV picture not very nice anyway.

Power light flashing????


Count your flashes and call the RCA hotline and they will be able to tell you what the number of flashes says about your tv. My lamp needs replaced and I was told 3 to 5 flashes meant the lamp was out.
