So I just got this TV off of craigslist and it worked fine for a week. then it started having the RCA 5blinks of death. so i vacuumed and canned air it all out hoping it might get better with better airflow. it started working again for a week then started again. the tv comes on just fine, then after seemingly random increments of time the bulb would turn off but the sound would stay on, 5 blinks of the power light then come on again. have been doing alot of research and from other peoples problems i concurred that it is probably the ballast. i could hear it audibly snapping/clicking before the bulb would turn on. so i pulled the whole back off and found some suspicious stuff on the ballast board.





has anyone dealt with this before?
am i looking at having to get a whole new ballast?
or could i maybe just replace that transformer since it still works sometimes.

thanks for your help guys!
