The problem is that most of the Rear projection TV's are older technology, so getting parts could be an issue. Now, the symptoms you describe could be overheating through the accumulation of dust inside the TV. You might try using a vacuum to get rid of the dust, but be very careful! There are extremely high voltages available inside the chassis(particularly around the CRT), even if the TV is unplugged, so you could be exposing yourself to a very dangerous situation. Do Not attempt this if you have any doubts about understanding the hazard.

If Cleaning it out doesn't fix the issue, then it is time for the repairman. Unfortunately, diagnosis and repair could be more expensive than a new TV. It all depends on what is wrong, and how easy it is to fix. I have no experience with RCA TVs and therefore can't give you any valid next steps.
