RCA rear projection set try's to turn on (you can hear it through the speakers) green power light comes on, goes off, comes on, goes off......
about 3 times. looking around FixYa I have seen the same problem.took the back off, took tray out, looked for bad solder connection on power input, dusted out..... i had seen another coment about possible bad HV splitter. had to take one wire out of it when i took the tray out. put it back together and still the same thing. you can access the HV box from the front. I now have it out. any way to test it?

Contact any service technician. It will be best in this case. If you're sound in electronics, and have some previous knowledge in servicing LCD TVs; please respond. Otherwise please !!!!!!!!. Time is precious for us.
This sounds like a bad capacitor in the power supply. This is a very common problem on rear projection and plasma TVs because they require a large amount of juice to start up from a powered off state. Replacing the power supply can be more than the cost of a new TV, but if you're handy with a soldering iron you can attempt to locate and replace the bad capacitors yourself.
Be sure to leave the TV unplugged for a few days before working on it to avoid electrical shock, and refer to your manual or any technical manuals you can find to locate the power supply on your particular set. (It's usually the brick with the plug coming out of it.) :)
You might have a bad lamp. RCA DLP projection That is the most comon problem with them. CRT rear projection, Red,Green,and Blue tubes.If it is the silver one w/the black speaker grill. Chass # _ _ _222 ?
Has 222 in the number.Can be several problems. Many things go wrong in those. Horz. Output,Flyback,And bad soldering are the most common problems w/those. Recomend staying away from RCA. Not the same company they once were.
Just recently, I was told how to get another tv.
You find a good TV service centre and ask them to fix it. If they cant you take the work order from your tv sc and call 1-877-297-8391.
You will get yourself a tv
Although my tv still does the "turn green and turn off" thing, I simply unplugged and repluggd the tv. After I did that, I pushed the "ON" button on the tv itself, unplugging and replugging the tv until it finally came on. I think the "instant warm-up" switch is going out.
Symptoms of a Defective or dying Power supplies on LCD TVs. 1. Light(s) on the front panel are behaving not normal example, blinking, amber color or not steady, fainting, etc. 2. TV not turning ON properly. 3. TV turns OFF by itself. 4. Needs to be unplug to many times to make it work. 5. Humming or high pitch noise heard through speakers or at the back of the TV.
There are actually two red leds present on your tv and depending on which one is flashing is going to tell you what to replace. 3X on the Temp led will point to a faulty thermistor and you would want to replace this part. If the 3 red blinks are the lamp light than this is a error on the iris position and you would need to have the optical block replaced.
