Question about RCA L50000 50" Rear Projection Television
I turn tv on and hear sound and then sound stops the on button blinks 5 times and ther shuts off. this happens with remote or tv button.
Blinking 5 times means the lamp is dead.

It has gone into protection mode. This is caused when a short circuit is detected by the power management system inside the tv. Try a hard reset: Unplug the power cord for a full 4 hours; then try it again and see if it will clear the protection fault and reset it. If the reset does not help you will need to have a tech look at the set and take voltage measurements inside to determine which section of the tv has failed and what components will need replacement. The cost of repair is always over $200 and could be much more, depending on the specific parts that need replacing. If the ICs have burned out the repair is around $400. The flashing of the standby light may mean something, but I do not know the diagnostic code RCA is using; most RCA models do not have any diagnostic blink codes in the set. Hope this helps. Let me know if I can help further.
