Question about RCA D52W20 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

TV keeps shutting off

My tv keeps shutting off for no reason. Seems like it happens after it has been on for a while. It will flicker off a couple times and come right back on and then it will shut off completely and I have to wait a couple of minutes before I can turn it back on.

    My 42" Sylvania TV is only 11 months and it just started shutting off. We can watch it for about and hour or two then it shuts off. When we turn it back on, it only stays on for a few minutes and then shuts down again. We have Direct TV, not cable.

Most of the time you have bad solder connections on the chasis pannels you have to pull them out and inspect them and resolder them.

Is it hooked up with HDMI cable?

If so try unplugging the HDMI cable and re plugging the cable in, sometimes those cables work loose and if they are not tight, it will cause your screen to flicker. Happens to my TV once in awhile.

Faulty Acoustic solutions TV - no / flickering picture

You can reasonably make that claim only if a) the TV was in warranty when it started happening, or b) it is happening to so many of these sets that it might be considered breach of an implied warranty (or something like that).

It seems there could be some moisture damage to the remote reciever panel inside your tv or with the switch its self, without looking at it i couldnt give you exact reasons its best to have a word with your local tv repair man unless you are good with a soldering iron,
replacment of the reciver should cost you no more than 80 pounds any higher and shop around.

Flickering Picture?

Your set might have a high voltage leak and that is the noise you hear when is showing the screen problem or even maybe an arking too ,either one is related to the high voltage and it can be dangerous,if you are familiar with tv service you can try to see where is arking and replace the part with an exact replacement but if the set has a leak you will not see it and is not safe to be close to it,if you are not too familiar be safe and call for assistance from a servicer.
