Tv turns on and off repeatedly does not seem to be the bulb as it is not burned out and the volume goes off in the past the volume stays on when the light burns out

If you have the extended warranty, use it immediately. This happened with ours after our 1 year warranty expired and found out it would cost us over $1000 to have it fixed. We've read that RCA used faulty glue that can't withstand the heat inside, causing a mirror to slowly slip over time. Our dark shadow keeps growing and growing.

RCA should have recalled this to fix it for everyone.

Small dark area in corner of screen on Samsung HLP5085W

What you have is a lens that has been jarred loose or a plastic support melted. That's what it sounds like anyway. you may have a recall on this problem if it is common for your model. Not likely something you can fix yourself. if you are Gadget inclined you maybe able to though. check recalls first.
