Question about RCA P52937 52" Rear Projection Television
My tv is only a yr and half old, about 6 mos ago, the menu guide started popping up on its own and began flashing. Now, the volume bar stays on and the volume dosen't work. We didn't get a warranty and the manufacturers had just expired.
Why did you by an RCA, what on earth were you thinking, meanwhile, there several reason's why they do this, one of the most one is bad eprom, there so commond on RCA that they keep stock on the rime, and or alway's on special. What happen's is that the cpu, get stuck on certain functions and can't get out of it because the data line is stoped. To try to solve your problem, disconect your unit and wait about 5 min and re plug it to see what happen's, it may work, seen this, other thing I do is unplug the unit and open the back and short out the eprom and the CPU to try to reset it, it is stuck on a mode that can't get out of it, there is also the chipper checker that can reset your unit, this I don't have, I think it's just an noosence and why would I spend another 2k on job's that I can't even get my money back and no support from the manufacters how to use this.
Another thing I've notice on 197 and 203 chassis or bad cpu and eprom , they tell me to change all 4 ic's and had the same problem a year after, meanwhile pure customer, paid over $400. and couldn't give him a warranty because I don't have a warranty from the magnufacture, point of view. All tv's has the problem, notice mitubitshi seam to have less, and hitashi, but like all of them, they change there design to fast and causes more issues then they solving them. It all comes to the consumer, I know not to purchase Sony, LG, Samsung, RCA and cheaper brand, there no support when calling them at all. And for those who shop for the cheaper brand that wal mmmm sale's keep in mind can't get parts I've tried and just gave up. Cheap china , or not fixable most of time.

you are that clear
but if you are talking about flashes on the t.v then it is due to sparking is taking place in your plug & socket.
if it is ok then there is a sparking in high voltage section in tv which is called fly back section.
