52"RCA Rear Proj. TVs turn off and on then not at all

I have two of these tv's and in two days both have gone down. The first one stopped all together yesterday and the other one stopped working today.
The last one will turn on for about 2-3 seconds then shut off by itsself and then turn on by itsself and do this a couple of times and then it will not work ata ll for about 5 minutes. Then I turn it on and the same thing happens again.
Please help?

    Had a tech come and look at them and found out some boards needed sodering. Must have been caused by moving the second TV after the first one stopped working. They are both fixed for about $100 each.

RCA 60" projection tv Turns on and starts flipping channels by it self

replace the keyboard or remove the switches for channel up/down to see which one is bad. if neither does it, there are some components around the microprocessor that can cause this.

You have bad convergence IC's.. If your not experienced in troubleshooting electronics or soldering, you should have a trained tech take a gander at the set. Its not worth risking life and limb to save a few bucks, Good Luck
