One day I was watching my tv and it just went off, like I had turned it off, which I did not. When I tried to turn it back on with the remote and manually nothing happened. Now the only thing that is on is a blinking red light above the on button. We have tried unplugging, disconnecting, cleaning, etc. but nothing works. If you unplug it for a while and then plug it in and turn it on, you hear a click but then the red light starts to blink again. We are at a loss of what to do. Any help? Please.

Re: tv will not turn on
The blinking red light is telling you that the set did not start up due to an overvoltage somewhere in the set. Most likely the main power supply has a fault like a bad regulator IC or a component associated with it, or there is a fault in the sweep power supply somewhere. if you have no electronic repair experience, play it safe and call out a tech to assist you with this repair. Good Luck.

Try tv unplug,replug it an hour later.The tv will now resetting back to factory setting.The tv should work now.Not,than the power supply board is dead.That the board,where the power a/c cord plug into it.Tries websites like Shopjimmy.com,Ebay.com to buy a refurbish power supply board for the replacenent.
make sure put the lamp door back before trying to turn it on because they have switches on them that allow the tv to turn on. If that is ok you probably have a bad ballast. Call a local tv repair shop to further diagnose the problem.
I have two RCA HD52W59 TV's. I have had one for 3 years and one 4 years. The one I have had for 4 years is giving me the problem. Last week the tv turned off while watching it. It wouldnt come right back on. 10 minutes later we tried and it worked fine. the other night the kids were watching and it turned off and smelled like something burning. I tried turning it right back on and got no power at all. I tried to turn it on two days later and it made a buzzing noise and the green light went out. Never did get a picture, no powering up on the screen. Any ideas? Don't want to spend alot of money. Really loved the TV hope it isnt junk now. Better yet I hope the same thing doesnt happen to the other one I have.
Try this before calling a factory authorized service center:
Press " menu 2 > 4 > 7 > 0 > enter", on remote. After settings have been initialized > press the system reset button on the front, once the LED stops blinking > reprogram settings and tuner channels (if not using box). IF NOT fixed call for service (get estimate before repair) and suspect repair of DM PCB (printed circuit board).
