Rca 61 inch projection tv model D61W20

Hi i have a power problem ,u see when i am watching my tv it runs fine but when i shut it off for an hour or longer it wont turn back on ..well it does but i have to keep hitting the power button till it turns on .if i hold the power button it blinks 5 times then blinks 1 more time then nothing..(the light on the power button not the screen )..eventually it does start up just takes a while .and i hear a ticking noise to the right side of the tv when it is trying to start up .If you just push the power button normally ..it does a series of trying to start up 3 times then doesnt do anything till you hit the button again ,,and sometimes the button doesnt work at all ..if you sit there and keep hitting the button eventually it goes through its power startup procedure,and like 5-10 minutes into it ..it will finally start up the screen ..it has been so frusrtating that i have disabled the front panel on the tv(due to the baby wanting to power off the tv all the time lol)and leave the tv running 24 7.I would like any info on to what may be causing it to do this ,,and i will replace it ..due to i really dont want to leave the unit on 24 7 ....any help is greatly appreciated, thanks,

    due to the research i have done online..it looks as if the cards all fall towards the fly back transformer is faulty ..i told this to a tech in a tv service business,he responded that the people on the internet dont know there a_ _ from a hole in the ground,think i found the right solution .he just did not want me to know that i got the info for free,instead of him making the money.It states the flyback transformer .supply's the high voltage to the set to power up the set.it stores power till it recieves the right amount of power to start the set..here is a webpage that tells you the symptoms that occur if the flyback is faulty http://ezinearticles.com/?Testing-Flybac... as u will see in the article power light blinking is a symptom the tic tic noise we are getting from our sets is also a symptom.I am still not 100% sure i have the problem ,if this is the problem then rca excetra needs to make these transformers better because i dont know about any1 else but i really dont want to pay 3 thousand dollars for a tv that i can use 2-3 years tops.then pay 360 dollars to have my flyback transformer replaced (is what i was quoted by the television repair guy ,and it was the cheapest price out of 20 shops).Anyways this might give us a legup to what is wrong with our 3k dollar paper weights we now have ,or it might not .but is a start..Oh yeah here is a site that sells the flyback transformer the cheapest.. only problem is no one wants to install it ,they all want to use there own high prioced parts .. http://www.partstore.com/Part/Thomson/RC...

    Hi Steve,
    James here again. I was wondering if you've managed to get your TV fixed yet. I'm the guy who messaged you before, I have the same problem. I've manged to get nowhere with the repair places in my country, so I guess I will have to try and fix it myself. Have you found out for sure what was wrong yet? If you got any more info I'll really appreciate it if you could email me. Thanks, James K. jjkjjk13@hotmail.com .

Power supply sparks when tv is turned on


That can either be the Flyback or the HV splitter. The flyback is located on the lower left hand side when looking in the rear and has a large red cable coming out of its top. The HV splitter is located in the front in the center of the set. These are both very easy and inexspensive to replace. I can post a link where you can get replacements with instructions.If you would like.
