Weird RCA TV Problem

    Has anyone fixed a late model TV (mfg 2005/2006) with this problem:

    You turn on the TV, after the screen lights up, etc. the TV turns itself off.
    About 5 seconds later, the TV turns itself on, etc. You have to pull the
    plug to stop the off/on cycle. Sometimes, you turn on the TV and it will
    play for a while before this off/on cycle begins.

    IMPORTANT: The TV may work just fine for a few days, then it happens.
    Eventually, the TV begins to work fine again for another two or three days
    before it happens again.

    I have serviced TVs for years and I performed many tests on this
    RCA TV, chassis M134C (mfg 01/06).

    I thought about replacing the micro or the eeprom, but I could be
    wasting my time and money?

    Thanks in advance, Brad

    Not sure have a RCA authorized servicer have a go at it, presume you do have
    the service literature (very limited) or look as some of the web sites. S.A.
