As stated above very often it is a cold solder connection. Look for solder to be shiny and re-heat with fresh solder any connection that looks gray in color. If you have a meter you can try to check continuity between the joint and the next component. Try to shake the component and see if you lose connection (resistance goes from ~ 1ohm to higher level and back, then resolder that connection by removing old solder by reflowing and sucking it with a solder removal tool or solder "wick". Then reheat with fresh solder. Iron and all tools needed available at HW store.

My 2004 rca hdtv keeps turning itself off when i turn it on


I do wish i had more but one thing that will cause a problem like this is spraying air freshener or spray cleaners where the spray can get inside the back of the TV. It will also cause it to pop. Hope its this easy to fix for you, good luck.

spray the cleaning rag then wipe TV clean.

Seems like you might have a bad CAP " capcitor in your powers supply unit. How you can tell this? Opening up the unit and do a HI POT test on your power supply unit and check for faults. You have to be qualified to check this and know what your doing otherwise you could recieve a nice jolt and pay a few hundred for a EMS to revive your heart. So leave this one to the experts if you do not know the logistics of this issue. Assuming your asking me a repair tech would consitute you do not know whats going on seek qualified help.

1. replace powersupply unit
or
2. Rebuild power supply by replacing the caps inside that have tested bad.


Good luck to you on whatever your situation may be but as always Thanks for asking me first!!!

Tv turns itself off


I had a similar problem with my Phillips 42 in. LCD HD TV.

Here's the problem. The Power Supply Board. I opened my TV up(warranty was up of course) and found several bad capacitors. Phillips and several other companies were sold capacitors that although were highly rated failed within 5 years because of a lack of preservatives. All sorts of electronic equipment is now being effected due to these defective capacitors.
Solutions?
1. Take it in and have it fixed
2. Open it up, check the board for faulty capacitors(bulged or leaking) Buy a new Power supply board and install it.
3. Remove PSB, remove faulty capacitors and replace with compatible new ones.

Hope this helps
