Re: i turn it on then off and it keeps going on and off

Im having the same problem with my set, same model and things. We have it where we turn it on, then it scrolls through channels and then shuts on and off. I would think it's the same thing as the solution mentioned. I know of a TV shop I can stop by and ask about this, what would the costs be associated with getting this fixed, so I know if he's telling me the truth. Thanks!

Re: i turn it on then off and it keeps going on and off

There are two possibilitie that I can think of for this model set. There have been some instances where coolant from one or more of the projection tubes leak out and drip onto the PC board causing intermittent problems. If not that, then you could have a defective capacitor or intermittent solder connection causing the problem. Capicator C13105 - a 1uf/100v Cap Located Near U13101 Syscon IC has caused this symptom also. Hope you can find someone willing to come out in the cold to fix it for ya.

Tv cuts off and green light flashes

Yup, it seems a lamp problem can give a blinking green light over the 10 times (1 - 10 times for diagnostic codes), but in my case rather than replace the bulb if it works for a minute then resets with the green light blinking, do what I did.
Take the lamp out and inspect it, it has breather screens top and bottom, if it cant breath because there clogged with dust, clean them, and you can remove the screens, use q-tips and clean the inside. I saved the cost of a lamp and it's working fine!

Samsung PCL 545R turns itself off ALOT

manual can be found on
(you have to download all 3 rar files)

I have a PCL5415R exhibiting a similar problem, have not dug into it yet but my set also has convergence problems. I'm suspecting that I have a transistor going out somewhere as it will often turn off while trying to do the perfect picture function.

Rca 52 inch rear projection

This is a problem common with some RCA/GE TV's. The fix in the past was to install a capacitor between ground and pin 15 of the microprocessor which keeps a data signal riding on the video stream from muting the sound on most stations. By installing this capacitor, you would be disabling the closed caption feature so that feature would no longer work. An authorized RCA TV repair shop may be able to give you more information.
