My RCA F25645 TV has gone completely dead. Is there a fuse inside that might be blown? If not is there a power supply like in a PC? Is this something that can be fixed? Can I do it myself safely or should I take it to a shop?

If no standby light is on (red), maybe a blown fuse that can be replaced with a new one of the same value. If the blown fuse is blackened, some componet is bad inside the power supply. If the fuse replacement does no result, the problem may be in the power supply (IC power supply switching controller, switching transistor, startup resistor or even an overload in the supply line output) which requires a technician to fix it.
This is commonly known as a vertical deflection problem. It cannot be fixed with an adjustment, but requires changing some electronic components. Namely the vertical output IC (integrated circuit) and in addition usually in this model a resistor which may appear to be burned.
The output from the blu-ray is probably component video, where the brightness, blue and red difference signals are the three outputs. Sounds like the TV only has composite video input so won't work. Check the manuals, if you can get a composite signal from the blu-ray then your TV will display it but not high definition. A HD LCD or plasma TV is needed to show the blu-ray films in high definition.
There is no RGB connector input at the rear of your RCA tv. There is Video, Audio-L, Audio-R and S-video inputs. You won't get any response from your TV, if you connect the RGB connector to the above said audio video connections. You can connect the Blu-ray player with S-Video connector. After connecting it with specific S-Video cable to your TVs S-Video input and Blu-ray players' S-video output, assaign the input of your TV to S-Video, by going to its Menu, and sufing through it. OK.
Hello The TV is completely dead no power indicator,nor standby light. Probable main fuse failure, but first make sure your AC feed is present, try another electrical fixture in the TV ac outlet you are using to make sure the outlet is alive. If this is not the case then check the main fuse(located inside the TV) not recommended if you are not qualified to work on electronic equipment. A blown AC fuse usually is an indicator of more serious problem further in the power chain(power supply/HV circuits, etc.)
I don't know the menu system on your model, but you have to check that the tuner is in the proper mode. Also, some of the new TV set models cannot receive a standard analog TV signal from its tuner.
As for the distance from the transmitter sight, this depends mostly on the antenna quality, antenna location, the power output of the transmitter sight, compatiblity of the TV to the received signal, and also the capability of the TV's tuner.
Modern TV sets are really designed to be used with a satellite or cable TV box with their respective service.
Terrestrial TV is dying out, and in a matter of a number of years, it will be gone.
If you're NOT still under warrantee you should at least open the TV and look for a blown fuse near where the power cable enters the set. A lot of times you can buy replacement fuses at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace.
Check the fuse. If it is blown, it will be obvious and make sure that the set is unplugged before replacing it. If it blows again, or if it is not blown, your problem is probably in the 'X' volt regulator and you will need professional help with the repairs.
