RCA Scenium: l5000yx1 - turns on and off by itself.
TV is several years old...but was working fine until last night...Turns on for a minute, then the blue light flashes and the screen goes blank, sound is still there, then the screen comes back, blue light flashes and it goes out again. Any ideas/solutions - or am I looking at a service call.

there is most likely a bad connection on the power board. i really suggest not letting it do that all night unplug the tv it can do alot of damage to the tv if it cycles like that for long periods of time.
Ours used to do that - and then we moved it to another state with us. Since the move it doesn't shut itself off anymore. I suspect that the problem was dirt and dust inside which got knocked loose in the move and the shutdown was due to thermal limits being exceeded. You may want to try vacuuming or blowing out the dust inside if you feel comfortable opening up the unit.
I had the same behavior, but not as a result of power outage. The TV is driven by windows CE software and it goes haywire every now and then. Usually pulling the plug for a few seconds takes care of any problems, but not this time (as you noticed). I had unplugged my ethernet connection on the TV a few weeks ago and thought I'd hook it up again to see if there was a new software release (not likely). I went to the menu and chose "Connections" and then chose "Ethernet Setup" and then chose "Reset All". After I closed the menu the TV rebooted itself (as it said it would). After my TV rebooted I had my analog channels back. There shouldn't be any connection between these two events, but it worked for me. Hopefully it will work for you as well. Good Luck!
