Good way to test for bad buttons is go inside the back and there is a black multi-wire cable that is connected "front and center" of the center lens on top of the chassis....easy to get to from the back.

Disconnect it....

I've had touchy switches on this unit that cause the problems you're seeing....and who uses the switches? Your remote will still function, and with the buttons disconnected, the microprocessor won't get stuck servicing a false command....which by the way makes it IGNORE the remote when they go goofy on you.....

My Mitsubishi Medallion tv stays on for about 10 minutes and then shuts down and won't turn back on until a period of time has passed. It is a rear projection tv about 9 years old. Can anyone help ex

When it shuts off and the green power light goes off, press both the menu and input buttons on the front of the set (not the remote) and hold both for about five seconds and release.

Power light will blink a two digit error code like 2 blinks and then 3 blinks and repeat it several times.

What is the error code?

It sounds like your high voltage block is arcing and causing the TV to go into protection shutdown temporarily. If that's the case, you'll most likely need to replace that HVB.
The other thing it could be if you're hearing "popping" (snapping ?), is that one of the CRTs could be arcing to ground, maybe the green one since you're getting too much green.
Good luck.

Swirling colors unwatchable screen RCA rear projection 52"

I will assume it does this no matter what the input is, It sounds like the board that controls the projection lamps is causing them to misfire? Or light up out of order in rapid succesion? you will probably need to have the TV serviced, or at least an estimate, so you canfigure out exactly what part has gone bad,( hard to tell sometimes when were not there), but be carefull if you decide to service it yourself.

Sounds like the block has shorted,not sure if you can replace your self but part number is 205064,you have to remove the grill were the speakers are and behind the grill is a panel,removing this panel and there is a part between the left and middle tube with a bunch of red wires on it ,this is what i think is bad.
