Re: My RCA tv turns on them shuts off
I think while shifting some loose contact problem might be there as you say it was working fine at mother house.
or you can check plug or socket for loose.
or call tech to fix it as it is not a serious job.

try turning it off holding buttons each individually in for 3 secs then in an hour plug back in ... the rep from Haier gave me this advice ... just waiting my hour now ... i also hear that the remote works for sure ...
when it shuts down and you try to turn it on again does the led blink/ If so how many times does it blink? let me know and I will try to help you out with the problem. Also let me know does the picture do anything abnormal just before it shuts down?
There may be several causes but, one is that when any color gun is being over driven, the Sony shuts down the gun to protect it. Try this. Remove the front of the set by removing the two screws from each lower corner. Next remove the black panel held on by 5 or 6 screws. Now you should see a panel with 6 potentiometers on it. Turning the ones on the bottom row CCW reduces the drive. Turn the color down and if all the guns stay lit, SLOWLY turn them up until you get the color balance that you like.
Same Problem here. After some investigating and speaking with one Lamp supplier they told me to replace the Lamp Ballast first (this is mine EUC 120 P/H11 9137 008 09405). I found one on Ebay. Since this may also wear out the bulb, I may have to replace that also. If I can get my TV working (HD50LPW166YX6) for around $150.00 for both, I'll be happy even if i get only 6 month of use out of it. Did I mention the TV was free? :o) Hope this helps.
If you're using a DVD player or other component using the Component cable hookup, try unplugging that from the mix, unplug the power cord for the TV from the wall and wait 15 seconds and plug it back in, then power the TV back on. Mine used to do this and I gave up on the component cable option and went back to composite (RCA).
This happened to me. Unplugg the TV and let it sit idle for ATLEAST 20min. Remove the rear cover of the TV. BECAREFUL NOT TO TOUCH THE TUBE OR COMPASITOR THERE MAY TIL BE POWER TO IT! You should see a (3) prong wire that is black+white+and grey. That wire is most likely disconnected. You will see where it plugs into the board.
