Re: TV only 2 months old ceases to work
I think it is the EHT for some reason it blew off for you. You got a miniature picture after you turned it on again because it was partially damaged and then it blew off completely. It can be fixed from a competent person.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The problem is a voltage dip. I can reproduce this on the same model TV by turning on the A/C or the oven and dryer at the same time. As soon as I hear the thermostat click on the TV shuts off. Just order a voltage regulator today, will see if that works.
The 2 blink error is a temperature error and the 6 blink error is a thermal fuse error. You may need to unplug the set and get you a can of canned air, take off the back lower cover and blow out all of the fans inside the set.
Your TV is overheating.. easiest remedy is to point a fan at the back of the TV or... clean the inside of the TV, Im sure its full of dust and stuff... this prevents air circulation inside the TV thus creating more heat...
With a problem like this, I would use the warranty for the TV.
It's possible a circuit board failure has occurred and the TV is automatically turning itself off to protect it from further damage. Is normally called " Protection Mode " for most TVs.
Being that it's 2 months old, it should be under warranty regardless. I would recommend contacting the store of where it was purchased and have them help you with the warranty issue.
Greetings. I had the same problem with my 29" RCA, and it was easy to repair. I opened the back cover of my tv and just disconected the two wires cable that connect with the upper controler (volume, chanels, etc); and now it is working OK; but I must operate the tv only with the remote controler.
bad flyback you can get a new one at the following link for about 50.00 they include free instructions and free tech support with every purchase so you can do the repair yourself. You need Flyback 259296 RCA Heres the link http://servicemanuals.vstore.ca/
It sounds like your focus/screen block, the flyback transformer, or maybe a CRT anode lead is leaking high voltage. This could be a serious problem, or could be a simple one. You should not attempt this repair unless you know all of the high voltage safety issues involved with this TV set. Good Luck
