Having problems with your Projection Televisions ?

My RCA 52 inch rear projector had started turning itself off last. This happenend several times but we were able to turn it back on with no problem. Friday it was on for several hours and I turned it off. About two hours later, I tried to turn it on and it kept the green on switch for about 4 sec and turn off. Then it would turn green for the same length of time with a "SIZZLING BACON" sound. It would try to restart itself one more time after turning itself off. Is this tv FRIED?.

No power. Electricity has gone off several times this winter. Power went off Firday due to high winds. WHen I came home, tv would not come on. Was plugged into a surge protector with Bose stereo and Dish Network. They both work but not the TV. I turned off the surge protector and turned in back on, and the green light on front of tv flickers for a couple of minutes but then goes out and still no power to the tv. Any ideas

I have a LG 37LC2D that from past 2-3 days started behaving crazy.. It seems to respond very slowly to the remote and blank screen after the green light blinks for at least 15 times...

I have a 9 yr old D52W20 RCA tv. It turns on and is fine for about 35 minutes. Then it turns off and then right back on again. it takes about 15 seconds from the time it turns off for the picture to reappear. It will stay on anywhere from 5 to 30 seconds before turning off and back on again. I had a repairman come in and he said it was not the capacitors but said he needed more information. At that time the unit would be fine for a couple of hours before it would start acting up. Any thoughts

My Hitachi Mod # 50FX19K, Ser # V6H000056 Man Aug 1996 has a power problem. About a month ago it started turning off for no apparent reason after I was watching for an hour or so. I could turn it back on with no problem. That time period kept getting shorter and sometimes it would take 2 or 3 tries to get it to come on. Once back on it would play until I turned it off. Now it only stays on for about 30 seconds and I can't get it to restart. If I wait and hour or two it will come back on but only

My Philips 32PFL5604H TV has had a sound problem for a while. It originally occurred when I the TV was turned off for less than an hour then turned back on the sound would not work. If left for over an hour and then turned back on it would work fine. The problem seems to be happening more frequently now and rarely does the sound come back on. Can it be fixed or is it time for the bin.

I have a Samsung LN40A550P3FXZA that is giving me problems. When I first started noticing problems I would turn the TV on and I would hear the power-up sound, the backlight would come on and then the red LED would flash a few times then the backlight would go off and it would repeat (power-up sound---backlight on---LED flash---backlight off). It would do this several times. Sometimes I would be able to get picture if I hit the source button on the side of the TV when the backlight first came

Hi. Lately my tv is turning on but once the video signal is recognized, the screen goes green with vertical lines. Then the set turns off, turns back on, and then I may see a picture but the colors and images are all distorted. After about 5 min of off and on, it would finally correct itself.
