Question about Televison & Video
The tv is about 4 - 5 years old and we never had a problem with it before....a friend said it sounds like it could be the starter and they are very costly to repair on these tv's
This set is prone to a lot of problems, most of which the average person will not be able to fix---most common is problems in or around the high voltage transformer but it is not a well made set.
either consider having a technician look at it or do retire it and get a new set. In case you look inside here is a photo of a typical High voltage transformer.

when the processor on the set detects a problem it will shut the set down for safety. it could be many things. technicians have a device that can read the errors that the processor has detected.

These TVs are RCA biggest mistake ,all most all of these models are shutting down accoding to information you just sneeze and they shut down, Id say try soldering around flyback transformer solder all pins.also they have trouble with ribbon connectors as well as the ribbions.

The issue you describe is consistent with a power supply board issue. This is the board where the AC goes to.
I do not think it needs replacement, rather some defective capacitors are causing this issue.
Open unit up and take a look at the power supply board.You will probably see one or more electrolytic filter capacitors that are bulged up in the top-not perfectly flat like the others.
The value of these capacitors will be different, most likely they will be somewhere around-820 to 2200uF/25 V( or /10V sometimes)
You can replace them with same values but I would recommend the voltage rating to be higher(like 35V for an original 25V) for reliability purposes.
What happens is,these bulged top capacitors will cause a low and unfiltered DC voltage=main board will malfunction(the relay will keep clicking until the caps are holding enough charge to bring the voltage up over a threshold point).
You can buy these capacitors at any Fry's or Radioshack store or you can order them online at vendors like "mcmelectronics.com"(look for electrolytic capacitors).
After replacing these capacitor(capacitors) most likely the normal operation will be restored.
Note: There may be also some other causes for this symptom ,like a defective T con board ,or main board,but the bulged top capacitors are the most common cause for this issue.
If you don't know about TV repairers, take the TV to the nearest repairman to fix the fault for you. Also, note that TV stores a lot of current, so wait a while before opening the TV back cover.
I hope this helps.

My LOEWE CAL 232 will not power up. When the power button is pressed, the monitor turns on, with the LOEWE on the monitor, then the TV continues with the previous activity (antenna, DVD, VCR etc.). Now all that happens is
1. the red light comes on
2.after about 1 second the green light turns on for about 12 seconds
3. the the green light turns off for about 1 second
4. then the green light turns on again for about 12 seconds
and this continues until the power button is pressed to turn the TV off. During this time, the monitor does not turn on and the only sound I hear seems to eminate from the power button.
