52 RCA DLP 1080P Television with NO picture and buttons flash

I went to turn the TV on in which nothing happened. The buttons on the TV started to flash for 5 seconds. After the flashing stops, the button stay lit for 5 seconds then they go off. Looks like the TV goes into standby mode.

I had a set with a similar issue--at first the tv would suddenly turn itself off, sit for a moment while flashing the power button, then "reset" itself and continue running.

Then one day it quit starting up all together.  I couldn't get a picture at all.  I was hoping it just needed a new lamp.

I took it to a repair shop and after a few days they said the issue was the light engine in the TV.  Repair cost: ~$950.  If I tried to purchase a part from the Internet to fix it myself it would still cost ~$700, if you could get one at all (they seem to be back ordered with no ETA, as was previously mentioned).

Instead of investing that much money in a TV that seems to be on the downward side of its useful life, I'm going to get a new set--perhaps with LCD technology, although I hear Samsung DLP TVs are very good.  Buying a new set right now is pretty painful, but the best option for me.  It was a great TV when it worked.

A 1995 60 inch rca good picture and sound. Then it started a cracking noise and a hissing sound, then the picture went blurry. then it was nice picture and sound, then it died. took the back off and turned out the lights. Plugged the tv in and out from the wall socket and there was a sparking noise and a small arc when i plugged it in and out a few times ,at the part that the power plug plugs into.The white part that is beside the white power plug part has thick red wire coming out of it and goes into another plug that has more red wires in it. but the big white part beside the power plug part looks burnt and has black powder on it. that part is probably the problem but maybe not, what it the name of that part and how much would it cost and is it plugged in or soldered.
