Question about Mitsubishi TS-4545 45" Rear Projection Television
I was watching the TV and it turned off by itself. Now, when I try to turn it on (either with remote or with switch on TV), nothing happens. The "on" light doesn't come either. When I try to turn it on, the lights in the living room dim slightly, so I know that it's getting power. Does anyone know what is wrong? This TV is about 12 years old, but I've never had a problem out of it.
It could be your starting cap has a short and insead of building a charge to get the transfomer ot kick ,It may be just drawing more and mor juice with out the discharge ,I wouldn't recommend doing that any more that amount of stored charge may arc to somthing that may start a fire.If you still want to play with the starter,make sure your breaker works or you may burn somthing up outside the tv.Get and Ohm meter and find out if the cap is is shorted out ,ther pretty cheap but I hope you didnt burn up anything like power transitors or the entire transformer,you should make sur they are not shoted before you start bying the starter cap.If you smelt burning wire in the past while trying to start a nice used Tv May be a your best bet ,projections tvs are being replace by lcd even if their real new ,people with $ want to go in the Hole for more space in theit living room

Your RCA rear projection TV may not turn on from time to time for several reasons. First, check that the power cord is plugged into a working power outlet. Check that the outlet is receiving electricity by plugging a different device into the outlet. If the other device doesn't work, you may need to replace a fuse or reset a circuit breaker in your home.
If you tried using the remote control to turn on the TV, press the "Power" button on the front of the TV. You may have a problem with the remote control if the TV turns on.
If you tried using the front control panels and haven't tried the remote, press the "Power" button on the remote control. The television controls are blocked if the TV turns on with the remote. To unlock the controls, open the "Parental Control" menu and remove the check mark next to "Front Panel Block."
Finally, your TV may be performing a diagnostic check. These checks are used to find any errors in your TV. Wait a few minutes before trying to turn on the TV again.
You may find that your RCA TV turns off by itself on occasion. This is often because the "Sleep Timer" feature was enabled. This feature allows you to place a timer on the television that will turn it off after a specific amount of time has passed. The feature allows you to save on your energy bill and extend the life of your television.
If the "Sleep Timer" wasn't set, the television may have detected a power surge in your home and shut off automatically to protect the components of the television. Wait at least 30 seconds before turning the TV on again.
Finally, if you suspect the television is turning off for a reason other than a power surge, unplug the television and let it sit for at least 10 minutes. This will clear any errors in the television. After 10 minutes, plug the television back into the outlet and resume normal use.
A blank screen on an RCA rear projection television is usually caused by a loose connection or an incorrect setting. Check that the coaxial connection on the back of the television is secure or, if you're using an external device such as a DVD player, the video cables are secure. Press the "Ant/Cable" button to switch between tuners if you are watching television, or the "Input" button to switch between input channels if you're watching something from an external device.
