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

1 Answer

When I go to turn the tv on it lights up green & you can hear it humming & the clicking but then nothing happens. Somebody told me I would probably need a new starter but what the heck is that? Just a longer word for the on switch? And is it easy enough to do or would I have to take it in?

    StARTER... ok thats a new one to me... ive repaired lots of these at the shop. first question? does the front panel led comes on and lights green? does it flash? the clicking is an indication that the main relay is trying to come on then something in the set a voltage or a current is not right and the processor is shutting it down. So this also means its more than a simple fuse. Second question .. do you hear a high voltage static type sound. The first thing we look at in the shop would be the High voltage horzontal output transistor. (this might be what somebody called the starter although never heard it called that) along with that the High voltage Flyback transformer. Ive repair many of these. Please for safety sake get a tech to check this.

    Does anyone have a guesstimate of what this will run me moneywise? Is it worth it?

  • Katerri Boeshans May 27, 2011

    Okay answer to the 1st question is yes the front panel led comes on & lights green yes it flashes. 2nd question I personally have not heard the high-voltage static sound but if you mean that whine it does like it is trying to start then yes it does it 3 times and then shuts off. So if it is what you are guessing & have fixed many times if I take it in what's it gonna run me to fix it?

Its not the starter thing, there is a problem on your HDTV power supply section, a problem or symptom like what you said is a component malfunction. Any component that becomes defective most on the part on the power supply system will only bring your HDTV on standby mode and nothing more. A qualified service technician could repair such problem. Over doing it and take chances that your HDTV will gonna work would bring more problem. So, call your electronic service technician or bring it to your nearest service center.

TV turned off by itself today, It initially makes a clicking noise, the green power light flashes and goes out after 2-3s hear 2nd click and nothing happens. No red blink lights, nothing.


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.

The humming noise you hear is the fuel pump. It is probably your starter soleniod. If you hear an electric click under the dash near the steering column when you turn the key then the ignition switch is ok and your starter needs to be replaced. This happened to me last month.

Your color wheel needs to be changed. Mine just did the same thing. I changed mine, and the buzzing sound went away, however now my picture washes out with light or yellow colors. The darks look green and purple also.
