Question about RCA HD52W59 HDTV Projection Television

1 Answer

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?

    I have same problem, an RCA hd52w67 that cut off and won't cut back on, though the gn power indicator light will remain on about 5 sec, then click off. Has any one found a solution? What about the "reset button" solution that someone mentioned? Where is the button and does it solve the problem?

    I have same problem, rca hd52w67 cut itself off, and now powers off 5 sec after power on, before picture appears. Anyone know if this is a common problem what the problem is and how to fix it?

    I have the same problem,(except my monitor number: D52W23) I've had my HD monitor for a few years. I put it storage for a few months, and now it worked for about a week, and when I try to turn it on: the light comes on for a few seconds then shuts off, then back on for a few seconds, then shut off permantly. If I wait a fw days it stays on for a few minutes, then same thing. When it works for a few minutes, it works well.

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.

Bought a fairly used 2003 HDTV 4 months ago, Didnt come with remote but got a Universal I used that worked, my friend took the batteries out for a while for something else, we put the batteries back in...

Hard to say what the code is without knowing the model number of the remote and the brand of TV.

RCA's website has a remote code finder you can use.

Good luck!

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.
