Question about RCA D52W20 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Hi, my 52" RCA DLP television would not turn off, instead stuck on the first cool down blue screen, and the screen started blinking blue at first and then other colors. Power light blinked 5 times. Had to unplug tv to turn off, but would turn back on properly with full picture / no problems during period that it would not turn off. lamp was replaced recently, but is the only thing we have ever replaced. How expensive is this fix likely to be?

Sounds like it could be the entire light engine.  The part is available on the Internet, but it runs $700 - $1200 without the lamp (although it sounds like you could use your existing lamp without a problem). These parts, however, are notoriously hard to find and may be backordered for months.

May not be worth the cost, but that's up to you.

SOURCE: 52 inch rca rear projection tv wont turn on

I have the same problem. I had someone come look at it and he showed me the problem but a terrible price, so i didnt have it fixed. The reason the light blinks is there is a problem and the safety mech is kicked in which shuts the TV off. If you take the back of the TV off, about 15 screws, you will see right in the front on the left side a part shaped like the letter "C". The number on top of mine is S5 19 2. That is the part that needs to be replaced. Now to find the part on the internet and figure out how to change it out. any suggestions?

sounds like you need to replace the color wheel but most of the time that is almost as expensive as the TV itself best bet for this problem would be to bring it to a shop and have it serviced

I have an rca DLP 52 with blue line


Howdy,
You have a bad Opitical Engine. It is costly, so call Factory they give you some concession on the part. Make sure you have all the information about the TV like Model Number etc.
Cost of about $900.00 and up.

Good Luck, big IRISH.

My RCA D52W20 turn on with a blue screen and then turns off within 3 sec's. It goes off like someone has switched off the TV. The light blinks and goes off. Can anyone help


Your blue tube has a short. What you are seeing is the TV turning on and the blue tube going to full brightness. It then draws enough current that the television's protect circuits shut it down.

Need the full model number which should include a BYX or just YX followed by a number. Going off the D52W20BYX1 the blue tube would be part number 263049 which https://www.encompassparts.com still has a few for $220 before shipping.
