    RCA 52Inch HDTV wont turn on

    Hi, my RCA D52W135D won't turn on now. When I plug it in, the green power light will light up sometimes. I also saw it flash 8 times once. I've fixed a few TVs before when I knew what i needed to replace (i can solder pretty well), so i'm hoping someone can give me some insight on what might need to be replaced? Any thoughts or suggestions are appreciated. Thanks

    Sounds like a cooked circuit board. Maybe the DLP lamp? I don't think you will be able to get a schematic for it, didn't see anything on the RCA site along those lines.

    Is this something that I can easily repair myself do you think?

    Here's a link: RCA Projection TV Lamp at PurelandSupply.com

    But I don't see your TV listed... Tried many sites, same result.

    me too...

    I have a 52 inch RCA. I play video games on it and it works fine, but one specific game (Fallout 3) makes the screen black out. No other games or movies have any problems playing on the TV. I have messed with different resolutions and display settings, but the problem remains the same. WTF?
