My RCA tv comes on fine and works fine for maybe 5-10 minutes. Then it shuts off and comes back on for another 5 minutes. Then it seems to shut on and off, on and off and you can hear it popping and crackling in the back of the tv. If you let it cool off it will work again but the same thing happens. My set was manufactured in 2002.

Ck Fan to Lamp it maybe Defective if fan stops running then lamp shuts off this is to protect Lamp from getting to hot Call Mats for Parts if it is the fan and Ballast Board is what turns Lamp on. 1-800-628-1118 they sell all supplys for TVs
It has you Posted as a projection TV and Not DLP, if Fan to Lamp stops running set will shut off to protect Lamp,I had a DLP that would play sometimes 30 mins then shut off drove me crazy trying to firgure it out and it turn out to be Fan would stop running I replaced Fan TV working fine . When you remove back engage toggler switch to up position put a piece of tape on it to hold it is a safty switch ,then turn tv on watch to see if all fans are running also if when tv trys to come on is there a spark coming from Ballast Board if so your new Lamp is defective it does happen if not your ballast board maybe Bad it is what turns on Lamp.If all fans are running Ballast Board.
I have two RCA HD52W59 TV's. I have had one for 3 years and one 4 years. The one I have had for 4 years is giving me the problem. Last week the tv turned off while watching it. It wouldnt come right back on. 10 minutes later we tried and it worked fine. the other night the kids were watching and it turned off and smelled like something burning. I tried turning it right back on and got no power at all. I tried to turn it on two days later and it made a buzzing noise and the green light went out. Never did get a picture, no powering up on the screen. Any ideas? Don't want to spend alot of money. Really loved the TV hope it isnt junk now. Better yet I hope the same thing doesnt happen to the other one I have.
My RCA 52 inch was doing the same thing. TV guy had me use a regular hair blower blowing very hot on the power supply board ( bottom left in back). After a few minutes the tv would come on. He replaced 2 capacitors, charged me $100.00, plus the $95.00 service call, and is working fine now. This was a month ago. So far so good. He only took the board to the shop, not the entire tv. Hope this helps.
