"weak signal" on my RCA scenium

Hey, I gotta RCA Scenium HDTV big screen and about 5 months ago i unplugged it to move it to another room and then i tried to use it and everything was saying weak signal and it was a black screen. But all the menu options work, but cable, or any rca input would not show a picture and the sound would come for 2 seconds then go then repeat. Some guy told me to unplug it for 10 mins and try it again, sure enough it worked. So couple days ago i had to unplug it again and now when i try to use it to watch my dvd or anything, its saying weak signal again. Whats weird is, my XBOX 360 is still working fine, maybe cause its HD ???? PLEASE HELP- I cant find any help and i need my Tv back. Thanks

    My RCA Scenium DLP HDTV shows that I have an unusable signal but when I check all of the connections everything is fine (the signal strength on the menu says it is fine) when I put it on a DVD or Cable input it will play about 2 seconds of sound (no pic) and then go silent with a black screen.

Hi, I got the same problem and unplugging fixed it but I just want to add that only my 4 REGULAR Video inputs (Vid1 to Vid3 + Front) are affected. The Component input, using 3 cables for Video input is not affected by this problem. Stephane

Hey! I have the same problem as you. But! this would happen only when I got a power outage. Unplug the TV for a couple of minutesand all was fine. For the last 5 day I have no TV. I have tried everything. All the out on the TV and I still get unusable signal. My rep told me to unplug for 24 Hours. Still didn't work. My menu option work as well and every time I put the TV on, off or if I change the input sound will come on for 2 seconde and stop. If I find the salution I will let you know. Gilles Ottawa

This is a terrible thing to tell you, but, what you describe is called dijitizing then the light engine failed Now it gets real bad ,,, This part 261589 is about $590.00 and is on factory backorder with no ETA in site. We have been waiting for one of these at our shop now for over 5 months. RCA knows about this problem and you might want to give them a call and see if they will do anything

This is a shutdown circuit problem, I would suggest that you send it to atv shop, or find a shop on FixYa.com to look at this for you. I have fixed problems like this in my shop, but I always require the customer for pay a schematic and a exploratory fee prior to me starting the job, other shops may or may not do this, so shop around first.
