Rca 62" PROJECTION FLATSCREEN - COLOR PROBLEM/FLICKERING SCREEN

I HAVE A RCA 62" FLAT SCREEN PROJECTION TV THAT IS APPROX 5-6 YEARS OLD. THE PICTURE IS FLICKERING IN AND OUT OCCASIONALLY, AND THE COLOR GOES OUT OCCASIONALLY AND EVERYTHING TURNS RED. IN THE PAST WHEN THE TV WAS UNDER WARRANTY WE HAD TO HAVE THR GREEN COLOR TUBE REPLACED. IS THIS WHAT IS HAPPENING AGAIN? IT SEEMS DIFFERENT. WHAT ELSE COULD BE GOING WRONG? I DON'T WANT TO HAVE TO REPLACE THIS TV, BUT DON'T WANT TO PAY HUGE $$ TO HAVE IT REPAIRED EITHER. PLEASE HELP.

Sounds like the red picture tube could be shorting internally which would cause the "all red" condition. In which case you'd have to replace the red tube. Are there horizontal (slightly slanted) lines through the picture as well when this is happening and a very very bright screen? If so it's most likely the tube.

Samsung s42ax-yd01 - No picture / Sound OK problem


Hi,
If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
If your TV, flatscreen, or monitor is more than 5 years old it is more like to have suffered a component failure.
Take it to a repair shop.

I have a 2 year old 32" rca flatscreen tv when turned on picture fine after 5 minutes picture flickers stays that way


Sounds that the fault is not with any loose solder point; but the back light inverter or the main power supply regulator board. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
