This blinking is unfortantly not an error code. The one thing that you can determine from this blinking is that the main fuse. and the sub power supply is functioning. The blinking is also an indication that the cpu of the set is getting power.And its not simply a fuse.What is happing is some voltage or current is not right and the cpu is taking the set into shutdown for safety. In diagnoseing these sets first uplug the set and allow them to set for som time. not that long. Then plug them in and attempt to turn it on again. DID you hear a click? how about some high voltage static. The most common faliure of these sets that i have seen at the shop is the faluire of the high voltage transformer known as the flyback and when this fails it also takes what is known as the horizontal output transistor. The cpu will shut down the set for about 25 different reasons. Technicians have a computer interface that they ussally use to diagnose the problem.

Liz, yes it is a power supply problem, better question is; low voltage or high voltage power supply ? count the blink code, it should repeat the code, once you have the code call your local tv shops and give them the model number of your tv and the blink amount and they`ll tell you price to fix, gl, video-tek

Tv wont turn on blinks 9 times then 1 time

I was inform that it could be a sensor (bad diode), you have to get a multimeter tester and test the diodes and if current flows from both sides then replace that diode.

No power

Check the ribbon cable connections between the boards to insure they are correctly seated as a 19 code usually means
Chassis detection, which means its not detecting a valid chassis usally the ribbon connections are the cause of that.

My rca tv wont turn on the light turns on and off three times

Rca d52w20 is a ict222 chasis i see this set all the time at the shop. The first thing to try on these set is to unplug them for 30 mins ( i dont think i ever have seen this work) What you need to know about these set is that the processor shuts this set down for any safety issues. it can be for many as 20 different issues. the processor stores this in a log which a technician with special computer interface can read. It will not be a main fuse because you can get the flashing light witch means the processor is getting power. So this is where the troubleshooting begins... these set are about 800 new. on average about 300 to 400 to repair. Notice any sounds or smells. What was it doing when the set died. did it ever run these will help whoever you get to work on it.
