    I have the samw problem, the light on top just blinked and TV did not come on. Took it to a repair shop, they just called and said that they would have to rebuild the whole power system and would cost $400 to do it. I said forget it!! I will NEVER buy an RCA product again....this TV was only 4 years old!!! Guess I will be looking for a flat screen now.....

Nothing comes up on tv when i turn ps3 on and controllers wont connect

Read this very carefully. Turn off your ps3 from the back. Then turn it back on wait unit the light is red. Turn on the system through the front keep holding the power on. You will hear a beep one time that just tell you that the ps3 is powering on keep holding the button until you hear the second beep this will rest your video setting. If that dosnt work call me at sony

This could cause a problem, because modern TVs and most other entertainment electronic goods, have a small kind of computer chip, but there should be a Reset button probably inside the set! If you feel confident about computer chips you may be able to find the button by tracing the circuit.(Disconnected from the mains). Another idea is if there is a small button cell or battery inside, then try disconnecting it for a day. Good Luck!
