Re: no power

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!

Re: no power

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.

Good luck.

Re: no power

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.

Re: no power

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... tooldude56@verizon.net

How to turn on tv after it shuts down with power mode


If you've switched 'off' the TV with its remote control; while the main power switch is On; you should use the remote control to switch it ON again. No other alternate way.

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.

TV Doesn't Turn On
  • 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.

TV Turns Off By Itself
  • 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.

  • Blank Screen
  • 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.

TV will not turn off by remote or on TV. No volume control on TV or remote


You have a bad Eprong which is a low price IC chip that controls your volume. You will have to replace this chip for around $15.00. A tech would charge about $50.

When turn on tv with remote and without remote it


I have the same tv. Something to remember is that the picture is lamp powered. It takes about 30 seconds to power on and takes about a minute to fully power off. I had issues when trying to turn on the TV, accidentally double tapping the button, which would turn it back off. I'd do the same when trying to turn off the tv.

If you are sure this isn't the issue and the lamp light is still on once the tv turns off, most likely your bulb is burnig out. You can find replacement bulbs on the internet. They are fairly easy to install yourself, so you shouldn't have to have the tv serviced.

If the bulb seems fine, your tv could possibly be overheating. In that case, make sure the vents are cleared as the tv gets pretty hot.

Set wont turn on from remote intermittently and occasionally turns itself off W70-2100


Does the TV turn off on it's own, or is the remote being pointed at the TV when it goes off - without you pressing the power button on the remote? If the TV goes off with the remote pointed at it (without you pressing the power button), it could be old batteries, or you need a new remote. Have you tried replacing the batteries in the remote? If it's not the batteries, have you got a universal remote lying around somewhere that you can program to operate the TV and try to operate the TV with it? If you determine that it's not the remote, it is probably something to do with the infrared remote sensor, or something faulty in the sensor's circuit board that controls the power switch. How old is the TV? If still under warranty, I would call the manufacturer and explain your problem. They will be able to assist you with any further questions you may have. The number for the manufacturer's Customer Service is located inside of the owner's manual. If you no loner have the manual, you can easily get the contact info via the manufacturer's website. Good luck, and I hope this helps...
