Question about RCA HD52W58 52" TV

1 Answer

RCA will not turn on

My tv will not turn on.  It is about 2 and a half years old.  Green light turns on for a few seconds and then goes back off. You can hear a noise when the light comes on and after it goes off it will repeat 2 more times then

nothing.  Could this be some sort of loose wire or something?

    TV will not turn on -- press power button and green light will come on for about 5-6 seconds, sound of picture "firing up" is audible, then nothing -- the light turns back off again. Not even 2 years old, and this was a replacement for a 3 month old tv that local repair shop tried to repair but found that parts were discontinued! Lost my warranty at Circuit City because they didn't sell this model anymore. Who can I contact?

    I just replaced the flyback on my RCA D52W25 because it was arcing, I used P/N 259296. Now it doesn't turn on. I can see the green light turning on for fews seconds then goes off, and turn on two more times by itself. No picture, no sound. I read that the horizontal output transistor (toshiba C5588) may be shorted or burned, so I will replace it too. When I plugged the TV to the wall, It sparks.

I had this problem on My RCA tv, what I found was a couple of bad green capacitors in power suply there are around three of them I just replaced 2 of them if I am not mistaken one of them is C120 but if not change all three this are the value of the ones I replaced 2200uf 16v and 220uf 35v, if you see on top of the green capacitors you will notice they are bad.

My tv is working for more than a months and I had the same problem as you are having.

LG 42 LCD no sound or picture

Did anyone find out the solution for this??????? I have the exact same problem with my LG 32 LCD. I only had it for a year and a half, and the green light blinks a few times and it shows no picture. Not even a red light when the tv is off. The same thing happened a couple weeks ago and by some miracle it started working again.

My rca 52 inch hdtv turns itself off after a few minutes

Sounds like the green tube shorting intermittantly. Have a qualified tech use a tube restorer to check for shorts, or the loss of the 300v line to the green tube.
