Question about RCA D61W20 61" Rear Projection Television
Each morning when we turn on our RCA HD Rear Projection 61", Model D61W20B, it takes 10 or 12 attempts before it will come on. The power light on the front will come on and go off in sequence 3 times and then go out. Subsequent attempts after a 1 minute wait each time give the same sequence until it finally comes on after multiple attempts. For 10 or 15 seconds after it finally comes on there are horizontal bars across the picture, then it will clear up and works just fine with a great picture. The longer the set is left off, the longer it takes to get it to come on again.
I have an electronics background and it sounds like a power supply noise problem, perhaps caused by a weak capacitor. If you know what the problem is or where I can get a schematic I would appreciate your help. I don't mind doing some of the simpler component replacements myself.
You have discribe a problem that sounds like a powersupply cap. It may also be more than one. LOOK at the board very hard for bad caps.
