Rca hdtv dlp screen flashing

Sounds like it could be the power supply. Try changing the brightness of the screen and changing picture modes like movie or standard. If this causes the flashing to change in severity, it will most likely be the power supply board

Mitsubibishi wd series 73"..Mitsubishi ws series 73" dlp. Works fine but after several hours of viewing screen scrambles then goes blue and sound goes off. I can switch to another input and watch ama

A couple of suggestions, if only on cable and using a box disconnect the set and box from power and after several minutes repower and see if a reboot helps.

The two models listed here both should also have a soft reset done with the original remote and the set on---Menu,1,2,3, enter.

Sony KDS-55A2020 picture goes blank then returns

This sounds like the ballast for the lamp is going. The ballast sparks the lamp, and if it starts to go, there's not enough current to keep the lamp sparked. Thus it starts to fail: it's the same principle as a fluorescent lamp fixture. Ballasts are available at any service depot, but they're fairly expensive, and perhaps prohibitively so; you may want to look at replacing the monitor itself.
