The TV seems to take ages to turn on, the red on/off light flashes and then goes off completely and the screen stays blank. It then switches on again and after a few seconds/minutes will switch back off. Eventually it seems to warm up and stay on. On occasion it will take up to 10 minutes for the TV to warm up and switch on. Once on there is no problems. I have not tried fixing this as I feel it may well be a job for a qualified technician. Please advise if the TV is safe to use, and what's need

My screen won't come on, however the blue light does come on to show it has power. Sometimes the screen just stays black, other times it seems like it's going to turn on but doesn't, meaning the screen lightens a little but it never fully comes on. This happens intermittently; when I unplug the power source for a small amount of time it sometimes fixes the problem and the screen comes on, however it often takes several tries. Periodically it just comes on right away. Also the remote frequently s

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

When I turn my TV on it will turn off by itself in about a minute and the red power light on the front of the TV will blink. The remote control nor the power button on the front of the TV will turn it back on. I have to unplug the TV for a few seconds and plug it back in to make it come on. It usually takes two or more of these unplug and plug back in sessions to get it to stay on. Some times it takes up to fifteen before it will stay on. Please help.

I am having the same problem with my 3 yr old 52 inch Bravia HD LCD TV. The right side of screen starts out darker than the left side and then in about 5 minutes it brightens on the right and has horizontal lines for another 10 minutes.

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
