Question about RCA Scenium D40W20 40" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Shuts off TV will work fine for a while, then shut itself off. Picture goes black, then power LED goes out.. Seems to try to turn itself on again (LED lights for a sec and you hear the normal noise) then turns off again for good. Usually you cant turn it on again right away but if you try again in an hour or so it works.

    I have the same problem my RCA D40W20 would turn off and I had to wait to turn it back on when it finally did turn back on the screen flashed red and I saw what looked like a flame down by the speakers and it shut itself back off. This is when I unplugged it and also smelled smoke. The tv has not worked since. When I do try to turn it on the green light on the power button flashes three times and I hear a chirping sound with each flash and then nothing. RCA is no help the tv is three years and 3 months old extended warranty expired 3 months ago.

Hi my name is Roety,
I can help you with your issue ,
First of all lower the blue and any other screen controls or service menu settings back to where they were or lower.
Then see if it powers on again with a picture.
If it still shuts off, unplug the Blue CRT circuit board and see if it works.
If it does work the blue CRT may be shorted .
Your problem may have been corroded CRT pins.

Green flashes then tv turns off


or a new lamp. you could first replace the lamp.
the screen might work fine for a couple of seconds, but then it fades away or deteriorates. This means the lamp is going bad.

Tv shuts off but power light continues to flash


Unit is telling you something is wrong with circuit. LED pilot flashes when malfunction is detected. Power supply shuts unit down to prevent further damage and/or fire. Leave off and seek pro/tech check out
