    my 52 inch rca tv was acting funny the last few days. It is only about 4 years old. Yesterday it was turning on and off by itself, and this morning it turned off and i was unable to turn it back on. I tried unpluging it from the wall and still nothing. I was wondering can you tell me the problem with my tv?

    I was told that a lamp needs to be replaced when reading the and verified by a repair shop. But I can't find the lamp. And the manual is out of date. It does not reflect the correct drawing where to locate the lamp. I took off the rear panel and the front panel. No glory, and frustrated.

    I have had my RCA TV for about 2 years and for the last 6 months it has sat in my living room without turning on. Hit the power button the green light comes on for 4 or 5 seconds then blinks 4 or 5 times and goes off. At first you could hear the TV trying to kick on now it doesn't do anything. I have been told by RCA that I will have to pay over $500 to replace the bulb. I am looking for other suggestion before I pay over half of the total cost of the TV to repair it! Help?

Turn on the TV, red light stays on, picture goes blank after a second.

I have the same problem. Factory reset did not help (hold Vol-minus on set and menu on remote five seconds, then unplug). Can there be something in service mode that would help?

No sound no picture, the stand by light blinks four times

If you have the above model, then the four blinks indicate a backlight failure. The back light inverter board might be defective or the voltage from the power supply (+24v) is low or missing.
Let me know if you require further assistance.

Minium is the green picture tube need to be replaced, if you can take the front cover and access panel off there is a control with 3 focus and screen controls.
you can adjust the 3 screen controls to possibly get a little more time out of it before the crt's need to be replaced. careful if you turn them down too much there will be no picture, and if you turn them too high the tv will go bright and shut off

Tv wont power up makes a noise but no picture

Your power transformer is likely shot. It'll cost at least $200 to have it replaced. Someone can come to your house to diagnose it. Usually costs around $65.
