WARRANTY 26" LCD HDTV W/BUILT-IN DVD PLAYER. Only 2 months old. Will not change channels by remote or manually. Shouldn't this be under some type of warranty? If not, who do I contact about parts?

only 2 months old yes you should have warrenty in the box did u get a little warrenty card at all?

if not you may call the company whp made the tv and ask them about the warrenty or ask them to fix or quote a price if it is to expensive to fix that way

you can call in the yellow pages a compony or private repairers also very cheap

Timer light will not stop flashing. can't turn on TV

Unfortunately the first generation DLP's from Mitsubishi are prone to have Capacitor failure through out the chassis. Most likely that is what your set is experiencing. I would start by replaceing the suspect caps on the DM amd The Power boards. You can get the V26 Chassis DM/Power repair kit from which also contains instructions.

Tv turns on w/pic then pic dissapears light blinks 4 times

I have the same issue, we've had to change our bulb three times in less than two years. now we have 61" expensive paper weight. Our current bulb is less than 6 months old. The TV is only 2 years old and like i said this is our third bulb.

the blue light blinks 4 times. you get sound. then a few minutes the the picture returns... then it goes out, and the cycle goes on.

A solution to this would be greatly appreciated.

RCA HD50THW263 is too dark to see picture and the blue lights on front flash on and off several times and then the t.v. shuts off by itself??

Hi,do you hear clicking or like something wanting to turn on?If you do it could be the board that powers the lamp it's called the ballast if you dont hear any of that ,tv is between 1-2 yrs and because pic is getting darker it sounds like a lamp problem.This is your part # 265109 found it here with the Philips lamp which will make it last longer God bless you house.

My tv shuts on and off every 5 min and turns back on by itself.

I had a similar problem on our 61" LED projection Samsung, It was about 9 months old, I called in the engineer (It was still under warrenty.), he updated the firmware on the TV. He connected his laptop to the TV, went on to Samsung,s internet site, downloaded and installed the latest update. We have had no problems since.
I hope this helps you.

Diagonal lines through the picture.

I've found the lines caused by the digital board before. Unfortunately it is expensive. I'd recommend running it on HD and it will bypass the faulty circuit. The lamp light flashes telling you the lamp is firing up. As the lamp ages, it will take longer and longer until it fails.
