RCA 50: HDTV, just started shutting itself off and won't come back on for several minutes or over an hour what could cause this

My friend had the same problem. There is some display bulb that is on its way out. They aren't cheap. Find a 2nd hand TV parts/repair shop, They usually have cheap used ones from discarded units, and will know what you need!

We have the RCA HD52w59 projection tv. The tv shuts itself off at different intervals. It takes approximately 1 minute to be able to turn the power button back on, however, I have to do that many times...

A problem in the deflection board. Could be a Cap. Resoldering the deflection board may take care of the problem. You need to call a TV man to do this kind of work.

Best of luck

INtermitant problems as the are called usally mean bad solder connections...the joints between electronic components. this set when it has a problem shuts down. This is safty cuircits. It could be a connector. when the set shuts down. it locks out for a period of time.. DO you have to uplug it to reset it? IS there any sounds. Without know more i would guess its high voltage.

Screen TV shuts down

Sounds like an electronic part (a resistor, a diode, etc) that stops conducting electricity when it heats up to a certain point. Maybe it physically loses contact on its circuit board due to a bad solder, or the part itself is internally defective. Unfortuantely you'll need an expensive professional repairman to diagnose it. TVs have high voltages, ya know, and can kill you if you go mucking around inside.

Tv keeps turning off

If it's staying on for just a short period of time it sounds like there is a sensor that is giving the unit a faulty condition (Perhaps for reason or due to a fault in the sensor). There are normally a few temp sensors in the TV around the Lamp and Ballast. They may be bad, or the lamp or ballast is just generating too much heat.
