RCA Big Screen Turns off

My RCA 52" Big Screen is 10 months old. After being on about 15 minutes, the screen goes black for a few seconds. This will happen maybe 4 or 5 times over a period of maybe 5 minutes, then the TV goes totally off. I have to unplug and re-plug it to get it back on. Any ideas? Thanks!

This is a shutdown circuit problem, I would suggest that you send it to atv shop, or find a shop on to look at this for you. I have fixed problems like this in my shop, but I always require the customer for pay a schematic and a exploratory fee prior to me starting the job, other shops may or may not do this, so shop around first.

Rca hdtv 52inch will play fine then picture goes black but still has sound.. after a few mins.picture will come back on , and will play fine could last all day or may go out again in a few mins.

My tv is relatively new, but the bad thing is that I had an old; big screen tube type rca model; home theatre, that was heavier than a car, and it went out, due to the cracking and popping sound, off sometimes, and back on.
What is strange is the new tv now, the hdtv, light weight, about five years old, is doing the same thing. Actually, now, the power will not even come on. The lcd green light in the front goes on and off.
Take no offense, but I thought I would not have these problems anymore. What do you suggest?

65" Mitsubishi Projection Television keeps flashing black screen

check your closed caption, long time ago there were 4 cc options. Turn it completely off, that might get rid of it.

TV screen goes black, sometimes for hours

This model series had a odd problem that caused this. It was the Hoizonal wire connctors for the yoke. If my memory serves me right, the Yoke wire harness went from Yoke to Yoke and plugged in at the casing of each yoke. What I found is the solder connection on the small board of each Yoke was intermitent. Please be careful if you choose to tackle this. It is in a HV Area.
Hope this helps,

I have a problem with my RCA 52" big screen...1 yr and 3 months old was having no probs with it and one day while watching it seemed like the video in the projection just slipped and now I need 3D glasses...

the problem you described is usual wear and tear but an easy fix your flyback needs to be resoldered and ther is a resistor a 150ohm that is starting to open up that resistor is toward the back to your right next to a plug to provides B+ to your CRT boards

Good Day, Armenian;

You may have CRT Coolant on one the boards. LOOK very closely for shiny spot on any of the boards. WHY? Because you are saying the TV is having multiple problems. Let me know.
Good Luck, big IRISH.

Big black box on screen

It has something to do with the closed captioning. He must have hit the closed caption button on your remote. You need to either turn the closed caption off or make another selection under closed captioning like cc1 cc2. Just keep making selections until the box goes away.

Its the lamp that needs replacing. It will run for a couple of seconds and then it would dim or turn off.
