This may be your problem it was with mine , the right audio input on the left side of the tv has a cut off switch inside of it for mono audio , it is staying connected and crossing over inside the EEPROM causing power and all button function problems.
You can open the back and unplug the side video/audio input from the main board and or replace the red(right) audio input jack on the small cicuit board.
it is a special jack that allows a single audio input to be sent to both sides for mono sound.

Just to see if the set reacts and it does something different tap the sides of it,dont over do it ,I should not take much to see a reaccion if it has a loose conection,If it reacts check for loose conections in the power supply,horizontal driver transformer and any overheated areas specially after the output transformer.If you are familiar with tv service this should help but if you are not be safe and call for assistance from a servicer.

If the front panel lock is on, you will need a working original remote (or a universal remote properly programmed for RCA) to turn the set on. The IR receiver is next to the buttons on the fromt but the RCA IR receivers are very reliable, and I have yet to see a bad one in a modern RCA TV. Once you turn the set on by remote, you can enter the menu and turn the FPA off.
