Hi, the RCA 46 inch t.v. was working last night. This morning when we got up to watch it, it won't even turn on. I pushed the power button and the only thing that will come on says "hit clear or menu to program the channel" but it won't stay on long enough to even allow us to select, either or....And, I can only get that if I push really ******* the power button. So, it's just stopped working. Can anyone help?

This problem is quite common in this TV it's due to a capacitor in the power supply being overloaded. The chassis model is a ITC222. The capacitor is located on the deflection board which is part of the power supply and should not be touch by someone that does not have TV Repair Experience, due to the fact that this area of the TV is the most dangerous. I would suggest having a qualified TV repair technician do the repair on this TV. If the problem is just that one capacitor the part will cost about $2.50 at the most, so the charge will be the cost of the part plus the labor involved.
I hope this helps,
