Hi Gina,
A failed CFL in the backlights may be causing this. Also check all the connectors between the inverter and the CFLs.

    It stayed on for a couple hours & again this morning it has shut down again! All CFL's ok, checked connectors between inverter & cfls. Still happened. This TV is crazy! Any other ideas?

I have a RCA L32hd41 LCD TV that flickers occasionally but mostly stays blacked out with no picture or audio. It used to flicker for about a half an hour then it was fine but now it won't even light u

Fault with the main power supply regulator board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.
It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time.

Few sec after coming on screen turns black

it seems that your tv is going to protection mode. that means any of the device is not working properly so it is going black. you can try fixing problem by opening the back cover & reseating the cables of power supply & main board. you also have to check the power supply of invertor pcb.

The invertor board will usually have 2 connections, each with 2 wires (usually white and pink) that go to the screen, thats how you can identify the invertor board

The power board is just as easy to locate... Just follow the wires back from where you plug the power into the TV.

Be warned though, the power/invertor board can contain lethal voltages even when unplugged! Be careful!

I Hope this is the info you wanted.

I turn on my samsung syncmaster710 and it just has a black screen, with a faint (very faint box floating around it. is this a fualty backlight?

The backlight invertor seems to be defective.
Check the main power supply board for bad capacitors (visible damage ) and make sure that the invertor tubes do not light up for a moment when you power up the monitor ( in that case their probably is one or more light tube defective (burnt)) --

Rca p61310 power up for 15 seconds and the power light turns off

Hi, this is a faulty power board. i would replace this damaged circuit board. this Will fix this issue you are having at this moment with your unit.The reason for the on/off cycling fans is due to the power board controllers inability to open the main fan circuit, which shuts off the fans once you power down the unit.
