    my 52 inch rca tv was acting funny the last few days. It is only about 4 years old. Yesterday it was turning on and off by itself, and this morning it turned off and i was unable to turn it back on. I tried unpluging it from the wall and still nothing. I was wondering can you tell me the problem with my tv?

    I was told that a lamp needs to be replaced when reading the and verified by a repair shop. But I can't find the lamp. And the manual is out of date. It does not reflect the correct drawing where to locate the lamp. I took off the rear panel and the front panel. No glory, and frustrated.

    I have had my RCA TV for about 2 years and for the last 6 months it has sat in my living room without turning on. Hit the power button the green light comes on for 4 or 5 seconds then blinks 4 or 5 times and goes off. At first you could hear the TV trying to kick on now it doesn't do anything. I have been told by RCA that I will have to pay over $500 to replace the bulb. I am looking for other suggestion before I pay over half of the total cost of the TV to repair it! Help?

Power Problems

Try leaving it unplugged overnight. It is possible it needs to discharge. If that doesn't work, I'd say you either have a bad switch, or a bad power supply. Hopefully the switch, because that's much easier to fix. Can you bridge the switch connectors with a wire? If it doesn't come on and stay on when you do that, it's a power supply issue (and not nearly as simple to fix).

When you turn on power you hear a click and the green light turns on. Three seconds later you hear another click and the green light turns off.



PRESS AND HOLD "device"(input) and"menu" buttons on front of tv for at least 5 seconds and then release bothtogether.

Watch for power light to blink in a sequence:

1 blink-then 2 blinks-------no error

2 blink-then 1 blink-------X-ray protection

2 blink-then 2 blink-------SHORT PROTECTION*******

2 blink-then 3 blink---------deflection circuit problem

2 blink-then 4 blink---------vertical circuit problem

******2, then 2 is most common---usually means one of the fuses that protectthe Convergence IC or IC's is blown---set will detect no voltage to convergenceIC and shut down.



let me know what you find--hope that you find 2 blinks, a pause and twoblinks--this is the most common and easiest to fix.

Let me know what you find and I will assist you.

When the TV is powered up, it shuts off in two to five seconds.

DO THIS: when set comes on and goes off (green power light) On the front of the set press and hold BOTH THE MENU AND INPUT BUTTONS IN TOGETHER FOR AT LEAST 5 SECONDS AND RELEASE BOTH BUTTONS.

Power light should blink a two digit error code like 2,2, a pause and repeat it up to a total of five times.

Let me know what error code and I will tell you what it means.

If this told you something you did not know, rate this solution as very helpful as I do this here for free.

Why wont my mitsubishi big screen tv turn on? the green light comes on but then shuts right back off.

Model number given indicates it should be a 2000 year model.

If so, it should have the self check feature; try to turn the set on and when the green light goes off: On the front of the set press and hold both the menu and input buttons for at least five seconds and then release both buttons.

Power light will blink a two digit error code like: 2 blinks,pause and 2 blinks (2,2 error code is most common one). It will repeat the error code several times.

Let me know what error code you find and I will tell you what it may mean.

if this told you something you did not know rate this solution as "very helpful" as I do this here for free.

Sony kv32fs16 problem

The STANDBY light is flashing on the television and there is no picture or sound. Solution
sp.gif sp.gif The STANDBY light will flash if an issue is detected within the television. This can sometimes be resolved by simply following the steps below to reset the television.
  1. Turn off the television. IMPORTANT: For a projection television that uses an internal lamp, wait 5 minutes after turning off the television to allow the lamp to cool before continuing with the following steps.
  2. Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
  3. Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
  4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. NOTE: If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.
  5. Turn on the television.
If the issue is still unresolved after following all of the troubleshooting steps, service may be required. Please note the number of times the STANDBY light flashes and relay that information to the service center.
