Question about RCA Scenium HD65W20 65" Rear Projection Television
If you're NOT still under warrantee you should at least open the TV and look for a blown fuse near where the power cable enters the set. A lot of times you can buy replacement fuses at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace. Check the fuse. If it is blown, it will be obvious and make sure that the set is unplugged before replacing it. If it blows again, or if it is not blown, your problem is probably in the 'X' volt regulator and you will need professional help with the repairs. You can also check the board where the components are mounted and resoled any that look bad. Brief power outages may cause the TV to turn off on its own. If you are using a surge protector, try connecting the set directly to the wall outlet. In your case it could caused by a blown fuse, a leaky diodes or a bad solder joint at the horizontal drive transformer. All can be replaced at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace If this does not correct the problem, you may need to have your TV serviced. good luck!

For the Mitsubishi, there seems to be two common power-on problems:
1. If the green power light keeps blinking (wait at least two min. to ensure it doesn't go off). It is 60% chance you can fix the problem by replacing the DM module capacitors. If you search for this problem, you will find the solution. It takes about 2-4 hours and $20 to fix.
2. If the green power light blinks for about 1-2 min and stops (normal operation). It could be a stuck on button. Disconnect the wire connecting the front panel then try using the remote to power the TV.

If its not a blown fuse or if you replace the fuse and it is still blowing, you should try to check the H-Output transistor it starts with 2scxxxx or 2sdxxxx screwed on a heat sink near the high voltage x-former or flyback. good luck too.

I have been asking around and this is common with this set.My HD65W20 that I have owned for 5 years just did the same thing,so I called A repairmen and the bad news,was that the set probably was not worth repairing,because the $1,500.00 DV2 module was fried,as seems to be real common with these when they are only a few to 5 years old.I called thompson and explained that I had paid $3,500.00 for this set,only 5 years ago,and they did not even want to listen,be cause they only warranty parts for 1 year,end of story.........Since getting married in 1975,I have purchased in excess of over 30 new,high-end RCA products,but never again.The best part of the whole story is yet to com....At the time when I was looking for another tv,it was onlt because my current $3,000.00 RCA tv failed because a quite evident manufacturing defect in one of the curcuit boards and because the warranty had lapsed,RCA was giving me a big run around about getting it repaired,So, the dealer contacted RCA and they sent a Rep to town and He promised me that he would get the part ordered for my old TV right away and get it repaired,so I really should'nt be afraid to but another new RCA.Well,after I got the new TV and PAID FOR IT,I was long for gotten and hade to pay over $500.00 out of pocket to replace the board that the factory had screwed up.... Now they are dropping the ball agian.The best advise that I can give,is to move on with your life and refrain from doing buissiness with LOWLIFE companies like RCA again... email@example.com

Your RCA rear projection TV may not turn on from time to time for several reasons. First, check that the power cord is plugged into a working power outlet. Check that the outlet is receiving electricity by plugging a different device into the outlet. If the other device doesn't work, you may need to replace a fuse or reset a circuit breaker in your home.
If you tried using the remote control to turn on the TV, press the "Power" button on the front of the TV. You may have a problem with the remote control if the TV turns on.
If you tried using the front control panels and haven't tried the remote, press the "Power" button on the remote control. The television controls are blocked if the TV turns on with the remote. To unlock the controls, open the "Parental Control" menu and remove the check mark next to "Front Panel Block."
Finally, your TV may be performing a diagnostic check. These checks are used to find any errors in your TV. Wait a few minutes before trying to turn on the TV again.
You may find that your RCA TV turns off by itself on occasion. This is often because the "Sleep Timer" feature was enabled. This feature allows you to place a timer on the television that will turn it off after a specific amount of time has passed. The feature allows you to save on your energy bill and extend the life of your television.
If the "Sleep Timer" wasn't set, the television may have detected a power surge in your home and shut off automatically to protect the components of the television. Wait at least 30 seconds before turning the TV on again.
Finally, if you suspect the television is turning off for a reason other than a power surge, unplug the television and let it sit for at least 10 minutes. This will clear any errors in the television. After 10 minutes, plug the television back into the outlet and resume normal use.
A blank screen on an RCA rear projection television is usually caused by a loose connection or an incorrect setting. Check that the coaxial connection on the back of the television is secure or, if you're using an external device such as a DVD player, the video cables are secure. Press the "Ant/Cable" button to switch between tuners if you are watching television, or the "Input" button to switch between input channels if you're watching something from an external device.
