My tv worked fine for years and now all of a sudden it went of. You try to turn it on and nothing happens. I unplugged it and let it set over night and when I plugged it back in it worked fine for about an hour then it does the same thing.

These DLP tvs sometime u unplug suddenly and replug it back wright away,tv will go into protective mode and will not work wright away.Tries tv unplug,replug it back about an hour later,now the tv will reset itself back to the factory setting.The tv should work now.
Befor thinking the worst, it may just be a tactile switch, probly the vol. down button switch on the front panel of the set. When you unplug the set and replug it again, does the green LED stop blinking after 20 sec. or so?
If the Green LED does not stop blinking you are talking a major repais on the Main Chasi Assy.
Hope this helps,
Just solved my problem. Found out that the down volume button must have been sticking. Tapped on it a number of times and finally the volume bar went off and then the up volume worked fine. Looks like the down volume button on front panel is intermittently getting stuck. This happened last year but went away before I could figure it out. Maybe going to try and blow some compressed air in button socket.
I have two RCA HD52W59 TV's. I have had one for 3 years and one 4 years. The one I have had for 4 years is giving me the problem. Last week the tv turned off while watching it. It wouldnt come right back on. 10 minutes later we tried and it worked fine. the other night the kids were watching and it turned off and smelled like something burning. I tried turning it right back on and got no power at all. I tried to turn it on two days later and it made a buzzing noise and the green light went out. Never did get a picture, no powering up on the screen. Any ideas? Don't want to spend alot of money. Really loved the TV hope it isnt junk now. Better yet I hope the same thing doesnt happen to the other one I have.
Try this before calling a factory authorized service center:
Press " menu 2 > 4 > 7 > 0 > enter", on remote. After settings have been initialized > press the system reset button on the front, once the LED stops blinking > reprogram settings and tuner channels (if not using box). IF NOT fixed call for service (get estimate before repair) and suspect repair of DM PCB (printed circuit board).
This has happened to me twice. We had the warranty and thank God we did. The problem is in a $7 transistor and you probably need to call a repair shop. They worked on ours and it took about 20 minutes to replace the transistor. They take out the bad one and soder in the new one on the circut board inside the back of the tv. The total cost was nothing for us because of the warranty, but it came to $385 for labor and stuff. Again, this happened twice, one year to the date from one another. The repair guy finally installed a different brand of transistors and it's been fine since. He said that RCA makes some terrible transistors and he will not use them again. Try and get the repair person to use a non-rca brand transistor, because it will more than likely happen again if he don't.
