Good Day, hdj2269808;
So, you have a RCA TV that does not come on and you hear three thumps. What you are hearing is the TV trying to turn on, the TV will attempt do this . If you are technical please give me complete Model Number, if not please call an Authorized Service Center and have them come out and give you an estimate before repairs begin.

Let me know, big IRISH.

    Good Day, Heather;

    Your TV is 195 chassis and 95% of the time the IHVT (intergrated high voltage transformer) goes bad. One can look at part and determine part failure.

    After removing the back of TV, (unplug power) at the rear of the chassis near the center, one will observe a whitish item about the size of your fist. Note: the top around the core (dark grey), if you see dark substance at center/top kind of bubbled, then IHVT is defective. Location; T14401, Part Number; 239111, Cost; about $60.00.

    Hope this helpful, big IRISH.

    Good Day, Heather;

    If you asking on how to remove this device, I would recommend that you call an Authorized Service Dealer to come to your home and give you an estimate before any repair is performed.

    Good Luck, big IRISH>> ps the part is soldered onto the PCB.

The green light on front of tv keeps flashing and tv wont turn on


The green light blinking indicates your TV has a problem. The problem is that each Brand of TV has different codes and with out the Brand and Model number, I can not help you at this time.

Please, count blinking sequence. Model number will be on back of TV.

Recap : Provide Model Number, Brand and Count Blinks.

First though; unplug TV from power source for 3-5 minutes then plug TV & box back into a/c outlet.

Good Luck, BIG IRISH.

I have WD 62525 timer blinks very rapidl but wont turn on or off

Try unplugging TV from a/c for 2- 3 minutes. Plug back in, turn TV on. If red light turns on (Lamp may light and go out) suspect bad lamp part # 915P020010.

Good Luck, Big Irish.

Samsung dlp acts as though the lamp is gone. Put

It may be the ballast or aother problem. First, unplug your TV for about 5 minutes, plug back in. LISTEN very carfully when you turn the TV on. (put ear on the left hand side of TV towards the back) if you hear a clicking sound. It may be your light engine. BUT most important what lights on front panel are blinking.

Hope this was helpful, Big Irish.

Good Day;
After changing batteries and it still does not work with THE TV's remote? One of two things; you have bad remote or IR detector on TV is Defective. MAKE SURE you press the "TV" button on remote first, then try again, esp if sound works. The remote may be an universal type.
Good Luck, big IRISH.

Go into the 'menu' then advance area to the audio and turn speakers on. You must have TV's orig remote. Or go to menu:

Tv won't power on

Big Irish,

I saw how close to the bottom of the cabinet the main board and
all the soldering connections were and chickened out on repairing it myself. I found a local fixit shop who fixed it for $160

Thanks for the information though. I appreciate your suggestions.
