The most common problem with shut down on this model is the HVT drifs. In short, you need to set the G2 to 290v, with no signal and a blue screen. If this is to + or - 5 volts set will shut down after 10 to 15 seconds. If this does fix your set, its a sign HVT is going out. I wouldn't advise repair of this set. Its not worth it.
Does it shut off immediately after turning on? How long after it has been on does it shut off? Can it be turned back on immediately or is there a "cooling" period where you have to wait before it can be powered.
Is this a TV under warranty or is it out of warranty? If in warranty, simply contact RCA and they should help you out.
Water can be very damaging to TV circuits when not dried up completely as soon as possible. Water causes corrosive damage to the printed circuits as well as the small components. It needs to be dried quickly, as with a hair dryer. Your set probably has suffered component or pc damage, and will probably have to be repaired by a professional. The cost of your repairs could approach replacement cost of your TV.
The set is going into shutdown,there are a few reasons why the circuit is being activated,excessive high voltage,excessive volts supply(poor regulation)no screen voltage or a secondary supply is missing,if you are familiar with tv service you have a few places to check,you will need a volt meter and a soldering iron and the squematic diagram to locate the different circuits mentioned,if you are not too familiar seek the assistance of a servicer.Let Us know if you need more information.
