Sounds like a bad screen asy,part number 204809,must use the generic,or you could have weak tubes,if so you may just need to turn up the screen drives,this part is located in the right top of the set with the back removed,if no cracks are present adj. the three marked screen's,turn the color all the way down in your menu and adj. for a black and white picture.

My RCA R52WH74 chassis # ITC222A wont turn on. The green power light comes on for about 10 seconds then shuts off. No picture, no sound. How do I fix it? Buying a new TV just isn't in out budget!

That model is famous for having issues with the deflection board failing. Replacing the deflection board should solve the issue. You can get replacement deflection board for the ITC222A chassis from under the RCA circuit boards catagory.
