1 Answer

Rca hd52w67 my rca hd52w67 will not turn on. I bought it brand new, and use it for maybe 3 months and after that I put it in storage for a long while. I have it out of staorage and when I plugged it up, and push the power button, it illuminates for about ten seconds and goes off. When I try to push the button again, it wont power until after 30 seconds and then the power light comes on, and repeat, but it never comes on. What seems to be the problem?

It came back on but half way through the day it automaticly shut off during watching, so i did the same process and left it unpluged for approx. 30 min and it took about 5 min to automaticly shut itself off. Can you help me out with this problem. Thank You and have a good day.

    I hear a "sizzling" nose when I turn mine on... then after about 3-5 seconds, the light goes out. Can you tell me where to get an ignition panel?

SOURCE: hdtv wont turn on

its the problem in your powersupply board.may be one of the capacitor have gone short due to moisture or because of rare use .when you on the tv after many days the curren load passed through it was very much at that particular time.and the capacitor have gone can replace the capacitor your self with the help of soldering iron.if you have any knowledge about it .or a technician help is much advisable.the charges will not more then his service charge.if the tv is under warranty period call the service center it would be free of cost.thanks.rate the solution if helped.keep me updated for further help.bye.

No! The solution wasnt helpful. It wasnt the problem you said that it was. I took off the back cover, and push the reset button and it came on. Thanks anyway.

I have rca tv model#hd52w67 when i turn it on the power light blinks on & off about three times then cuts off

This is what RCA (Thompson) calls the three strikes and you are out.

If a problem: set will attempt to turn on 3 times and then go into shutdown which indicates a short somewhere.

It will require a shop repair as this set is not usually repairable in the home.

Let me know if you have questions.

My HD52W67 has concaved picture

This is a convergence problem and can be repaired relatively easily. If you can solder, you can fix this yourself. First try resoldering the pins on the convergence ICs. If that fails to resolve the problem, replace the ICs. These are large black ICs attached to a heat sink and should be marked STKxxx.

Keep us posted.
