Multiple issue,power light flashes

Sounds like first loose connection on circuit board. I would first look around the relay this is what clicks. Then also the low voltage transformers. These problems are always concerns when set is moved or bumped hard. Try this first. Or it could be a heated issue.

Tv doesnt turn on at all

It seems that your unit has some sort of PSU fault, or a problem that is shutting down the Power Supply Unit, PSU. The noise is what gives it away. This happens so that no further damage, and possible fire will occur.

You need to take the unit to a reputable service centre/man and ask for a firm "Quote" for the work to be done. It is that sound that gives it away, this is a typical switchmode Power Supply problem.

No sound tv

it can be many reasons
1 some tvs have on the back a internal/external speakers many times the customer unadvertidly move the sw to the expternal position
2 the speakers are deactivated from the man many
3 check if the tv has a his noise coming out from the speakers at full volume if so then the amplifier are good & the same for the power supply if no hissing noise then check dc votege is geting the amplifier if so then the amplifiere is most likly the fail if not then the power supply is at fault
3 check for the output capacitor that most of the amplifiere have in the output is conected directly to the speaker
4 if no capacitor is found then it must be +B & -B in order for the amplifier to work the lack of one of them mus make the amplifier unoperable then define why is not ther & fix the cause

Mitusbishi vs 5041

Good Day, rob;
More than likely you have CRT coolant (fuild) on the board(s). Check this by removing the TV's speaker grill, the small panel and look for the fluid using a bright light. It's not always easy to see, if fluid is found remove it with acetone and use heavy plastic and drape loosely over the board in the front. Always remove POWER from TV BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY SERVICE. Good Luck, big IRISH.

Is there a reset button for 52in rca hd ready rear projection tv?

Most likely there was one or more marginal connections on the main board and moving the set has completely opened those connections. If you can solder, try resoldering any connections on the boards that appear to be grainy or have rings. Update this with the results. That may resolve the problem. If not, we'll look further into the set for component failures.
