Question about RCA L46WD22 Television

RCA L46WD22 won't turn on after being off overnight

Hi, we just recently bought (not even a week old) brand new RCA HD 46" model L46WD22 television. The problem we're having is after the t.v. has been turned off for an extended period of time, like overnight, usually 8 to 12 hours, it will not turn back on with the remote. The green power light comes on, but nothing on the screen. I unplug the set for a couple seconds, plug it back in, hit the remote and it comes on in less than 5 seconds. Should I wait longer before unplugging the set? This is the first "big" tv that we have owned and I am not sure if this is normal. i can't find anything in the owners manual that explains this to me. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am getting ready to return this thing for a refund, and go back to the old one. It worked just fine and was a lot cheaper.

    We bought our RCA L46WD22 last October (2007) - also our first big TV. We've had the problem identified after the first month. I've continued to use the method of unplugging and getting it to work - until tonight. Now nothing I do will get the TV to turn on. The little red light on the front of the TV just keeps on blinking.

RCA are beautiful televisons, what is happening is that when the faulty fan that cools down the processor stops working, your processor over heats and a temperature gage inside reconizes this and shuts down the television. unlike some other models that i choose to remain nameless
*cough sony cough cough* where you need to replace the t.v,

RCA has a safty feature that allows the t.v to shut down with out it doing any harm. Ok folks, this is the easyest answer that i am going to ever give anyone.

All you need to do is Replace the FAN! that fan that cools down the processor to allow the fast movements to give the vibrant pictures in stunning accurate pixle compounds. it will cost about $50 for the fan and $200 for the guy/girl to install it.

So there you are a complex problem with a simple answer. you are one lucky person, you choose the right television the only factory defect was the fan. your t.v should last 15years without any serious problems.

I hope this has helped you folks. i am called the flat pannel Guru in my buisness.

It is a 46 inch lcd flat screen model l46wd22. It is 2 years old and this problem just happened this morning. Do you remember those old disco lights that flash really fast on and off? I get a clear picture...

It could be many things that cause this. Try all inputs IE: DVD, cable etc. If it is doing this on all inputs, try unplugging the TV for 2 minutes to allow for a reset and then power it back up again. If it is still doing the disco flashing time to call fro a service technician...

Vizio plasma tv turned off..won;t turn back on

This sounds like the main power board went bad. If this is still under warranty, contact 1-877-MYVIZIO and they will have it repaired for you. if not, let me know and I will guide you to the right part.

No black in our picture

You should see if walmart will take it back. If it is the digital board the part has not been available for a while.
