Replace the small signal board and take the eeproms off the old board put on new board to avoid convergence alignment and geometry problems

If the TV is only a few weeks past warranty you can call and pester RCA and they usually will give you a concession on a repair....it's worth a shot.

That is a shame a company like RCA will not stand behind thier products if the warranty just runs out. Were you offered an exteced warranty at the time of purchace. if so go back to the store and see if it is too late to buy one. Then next week call the servicer and say the TV went out. I have heard of this being done before. Good luck.. The problem with your TV set is most likely the power supply. unless yopu have electronic test equipment, this could cost you big bucks.

My Mitsubishi Medallion tv stays on for about 10 minutes and then shuts down and won't turn back on until a period of time has passed. It is a rear projection tv about 9 years old. Can anyone help ex


When it shuts off and the green power light goes off, press both the menu and input buttons on the front of the set (not the remote) and hold both for about five seconds and release.

Power light will blink a two digit error code like 2 blinks and then 3 blinks and repeat it several times.

What is the error code?

My "50" RCA Scenium won't


That's usually caused by a bad lamp. However that chassis is famous for having bad caps on the power board. The repair kit is available at the following link and has repair instructions included. http://servicemanuals.vstore.ca/product_info.php/pName/rca-atc336-dlp-power-board-repair-kit/cName/repair-kits

I have a 52" RCA


sounds like the power supply capacitors CP150, CP120 and CP114 need replacement. You can get the RCA repair kit by that same name from www.tvrepairworld.com which has the caps and the CD with repair instructions.

My 20" rca 20f424t cuts


That sucks about your tv. Mine just turned 3 years old. Never had a problem with it. But you seriously can't expect wal-mart to take back and exchange a 3 year old tv. Come on. That would be stupid for walmart to do. Even RCA prolly dosent do more than a 1 year warranty. Unless you purchased the warranty from walmart, it will be cheaper to just get a 19 inch lcd tv now. Cheapest I see them on sale for is only $99.99

I have an rca 61" dlp tv that is about 4 years


More than likely you have a power board that is failing. Since the TV is so old I doubt it is under warranty still. I estimate it would cost you anywhere between $300-400 to repair that problem so it may be time to switch to a newer LCD TV.

My tv will not turn on the power light comes on


After the power surge , the TV went on protect mode.

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

Also ensure that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending bad signal, check if you get same problem with no receiver box or dvd connected.

If that does not work, and you keep having a flashing led on front of the TV, and tv turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible reasons.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , startingthe flashing light.


If you are in situation one, then theTV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

Common faults that can occur after power surge on a rear projection are a blown capacitor on power board, a component on ballast board has blown, or a fault on Digital board had occurred.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

New TV 9 mos old, Won't stay on after power up? Remote or manual turn on, set keeps turning off after 1-2 second green on and brief screen flash.


I would try leaving the TV unplugged for 30mins so the TV can reset itself.
If that doesn't work, your TV should still be under warranty. I know 95% of come with a 1 year warranty.
The most common problem with Sylvania TVs made by FUNAI, the Backlight Inverter board fails to early in life. ( That's the part that powers the screen)
The Tv can't power up the screen and it turns off automatically. Basically called "Protection Mode" so it protects the other parts inside the TV.

Power button malfunction


Sounds like a faulty power supply. Consult warranty guide if its still under warranty, if not, you really need to consider calling a repair technician

RCA SCENIUM trys to start up but wont start


I kind of had the same problem..I had audio..no picture..and the display would flash 5 times. Per the manual it said the lamp needed replaced. After reading a post by someone that had the same problem and replaced the lamp, it still didnt fix the problem..I took my set in to the repair shop. Turned out to be the light engine..$1000.00 for the part...$250.00 for labor! The tv was only 15 months old..and not even used on a regualr basis..I maybe had 300 hrs on it. I did not buy the extended warranty (will for my next tv!!!) but after many heated conversations with RCA..they agreed to pay for the part..I got stuck with the labor, atleast that was better than the whole bill. Anyway..starting to act up again..after only 5 months..bottom line..I'll never buy an RCA again!!
