TV turns on then off no picture

About 3 days ago I went to turn my TV on and the screen was blank. I turned it on and off several times and got it to finally come back on. The next day it did the same thing. I turned it on and off several times and finally got a picture but it was wavy. It went dark and came back on and then went dark for good. The green light on the power button went out and would not stay on. I can turn it on and the power button will get a green light for a few seconds and then turn off, there is not a picture at all. I have tried to trouble shoot. I have unplugged it overnight and I still get the same result. I would appreciate any help you could give me.

    mine doesn't really turn off it just kinda flashes and looses sound. Sometimes it helps if I turn it off during commercials but it seems to be getting worse. It also seems to be doing it more at night. All my friends one of whom is an electrician said it was the power supply but I JUST HAD the POWERE SUPPLY FIXED about A WEEK AGO. It just gets so frusterating missing sentences. At first it seemed to do it at random but now it seems to do it more at the beginning or end of a commercial or, of course right when the show comes back on. I have had my RCA Proscan for about 12 years and it just started last week. If anyone has any suggestions please contact me at... THANK YOU.

Sounds like a power supply problem, it is possible that somehow its voultage got deadjusted and the extra current is shutting down the unit. May be pix tube, or crt drivers. Unplug the crt board to test, & measure for shorts on the crt board. good luck

Mitsubishi VS-5041 50 Inch Rear Prorjection TV No image but there is sound!

After 11 years???? OMG This set is a tired pup and should be put to reast. My experience with older sets and your complains are all capacitor problems and is only gonna get worse as the first time around repair will take several capacitors to repair. This set has no user serviceable parts inside so you should not attempt a repair suchj as this on your own.. This repair if you decide to go through the first time will be About 300 to 600 bucks the first time and cost will continue to raise till the sets put to sleep. Good luck
