Re: will not come on

Well .. the smell is not good.. that usally idcates high voltage arching... 90 percent chance its what is called a flyback. and when they go the horizontal out put goes...not a difficult repair for technician.. but you have to get right parts

What kind of heat issue would my 56 inch projection tv have if after a couple hours shut off and on then then turns off . fuse, power supply . not sure

Sounds like it's possibly your convergence IC's overheating. On some projection tv's, after time, the solder joints on the IC's weaken from the heat and cause them to turn off the tv for it's own protection.

I have a 56 inch rca rear projection tv and after two hours starts turning of and on for about half hour and then turns off. when we turn it back on it shuts off and comes on fast and then shuts off....

Those type of tv sets get unusually hot at times. Could be a heat issue. Power flow at night is the best. If it's still turning off then, it must be a dust or heat issue.

Usually its the CP150, CP120 and the CP114 capacitors that will cause that symptom. You can get the RCA repair kit by that same name from which does include the repair instructions.

I have a model d56w20 that when I turn it on it will shut off by its self right away

These units are famous for bad capacitors in the power supply and loose solder joints at the high voltage transformer. The deflection PCB has to be removed to perform these repairs. This is also a dangerous circuit to work with. You may want to have a repair shop check it out for you. Thanks
