Picture flashes on and off in about 7 seconds

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand and model of your computer? And the Operating System (OS)?

What does my compute have to do with my tv

Technician's Assistant: The TV Technician will be able to walk you through that. What's the brand and model number of your TV? How old is it?

Rca older than 10 yrs.

Technician's Assistant: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue with your RCA? What happened right before this?

2 to 3 yrs but sometimes it goes quite long without an issue

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the TV Expert to know before I connect you?

Initially, re-confirm and post back with the complete model number of the "...rca tv..."

Still and almost always, the described symptom would be an internal hardware issue.

Are you then considering a DIY (do-it-yourself) repair approach? If yes, do you have access to and familiar with a multi-meter (and even perhaps a soldering iron)?

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
