RCA 52" Projection TV
Model: R52W74
Serial: G146CN03L
Chassis: ITC222A

It used to work fine, never had any problems. This past couple weeks we were away from town, had the heat off because I did not believe it'd get below 40-50 (It ended up getting down to at least 10-20 degrees in case that matters..) When I came back we turned the heat on and went shopping. Came back, was about 60 when we turned the TV on, worked fine for maybe 15 minutes and then shut off. Since then when we press the power button the power light comes on and we hear a slight noise like it's powering up. The screen never comes on though, and with 10-15 seconds it powers off. From there we can't get it to turn back on unless we wait a couple minutes. I normally just come back in 10 minutes.. so I don't know how soon I can try again past 1 minute of the previous try. It was unplugged during the entire time we were gone. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

Edit: I have searched and read a lot about a few different caps, I have yet to open it up and have a look, just trying to get some ideas of what might be wrong.

Try replacing the capacitor located at cp150. The vaue is 2200uf at 16v.
