Question about RCA P52926 52" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Power light comes on, then nothing

After about a year +, the power from remote and from TV does nothing. Occasionally, the light will come on, it sounds like it is going to power up, but then there is a low hiss, almost like a CD player makes when it is broken. No smoke, no fire, no sound, no picture. Then the light goes out by itself.

WHY does the power light come on but no picture or response to remote ?

If the TV dies not come on then you have a power board failure. You need to remove the board and check for bad capacitors. You can replace them yourself if you are good with soldering, otherwise get service to fix this issue.

The red power light comes on but nothing else works on my hitachi 53FDX01B PROJECTION TV

silly question but have you tried turning it on with the remote. if a tv has been turned off by remote and then power goes, turning it on by the tv switch will put the tv back in stand-by mode and you need to use remote.

just a suggestion.

I have a 2004 Chevy Silverado. Occasionally when I turn the key to start it nothing happens. I have power, all lights come on. There are no noises or anything. If I use the remote starter, it works.

sounds like the ignition control switch has gone bad. all light will come one but if you turn to start and nothing happen but works with remote starter then the first thing to get checked is the ignition control switch.

I have a Panasonic 32 inch HDTV. TV worked great until one day tried to turn on and nothing. It acts like it has no electrical power. We have tried plugging into different outlets with no luck. The red...

One simple solution may be to replace the power cable or the power strip that the TV is plugged in to. If you cannot get any power to the TV even after this step, it is most likely a motherboard or some sort of circuitry issue. Make sure you are using the physical buttons on the TV when trying to turn the TV on; leave the remote out of the equation. If it still does not come on, your TV may be far gone. HDTVs have a lifespan these days of anywhere between 3-5 years for plasma, 5-7 years for LCD, and the new LED tvs are supposed to last anywhere between 7-10 years.

TV will not come on by remote or power button

There is a problem inside the set. There is nothing that will lock the set up. I would start with the power supply. Thanks

press the on button on the remote and see it with the help of mobile phone's camera. If u did'nt see a light coming out of the remote, then your remote is faulty.And if u see light then your tv sensor is faulty.
