Question about RCA P52926 52" Rear Projection Television
Problem first started with the power button flashing 3 times and still not turning on. It woulnd take about 3 min., then 15min., then 1hr, then 3hrs, of pushing the power button to get the tv to turn on. We started not turning off the tv so we didn't have deal with the hassle. Then after a few weeks of this prossess if you were lucky enough to get the tv on in the middle of your show the screen would start flashing white with static. It started flashing about every 30 min or so and then moved to about every 5 min. I know someone who had a simular problem with a flat screen and said they fixed it by changeing out a lamp. I would like to know if anyone knows if this tv has a lamp that can be changed, where to get this lamp, and if they think it will work?
YOU DO NOT HAVE ANY LAMPS --BUT YOU DO HAVE 3 PICTURE TUBES...SORRY TO SAY BUT THIS IS THE WORST TV BUILT...LETS SEE IF WE CAN FIND A FIX...YOUR PROBLEM WILL PROBABLY NEED A SERVICE TECH BUT HERES SOME OF THE PROBLEMS THAT GO WITH YOUR SYMTOMS---WHEN THE SET TRIED TO COME ON WITH 3 FLASHING BLINKS,,IT'S GOING INTO SHUTDOWN...NOW...THE HV TRANSFORMER,,THE HV BLOCK AND SOME CASES ,,,ONE OF THE PICTURE TUBES LEAKING FLUID AND SHUT DOWN...CHECK UNDER THE TV FOR A FLUID LEAK-LOOKS LIKE ANTIFREEZE-THE WHITE STATIC THING SOUNDS LIKE HIGH VOLTAGE ARCHING...AFRAID YOU'LL NEED A CHECK OUT FROMM SERVICE TECH..TUNICA
