I went home yesterday and removed my plug from the power bar that is was plugged into and the picture came back on and stayed on for a while, but again it shut itself off... but when it came back on it went to channel 64 and the volume was all the way up to the max. I too have not had this tv for very long ...about 2 years roughly. I used to work for Thomsons/RCA and to be honest I will never buy another one. The price was up there and I even bought the matching DVD player....I am not impressed....

maybe there is a lizard inside, open the back cover then remove the PCB. re solder the damaged area and clean it with an electronic spray cleaner. check for cold solder component leads and re solder it.
Hey Jim, The high voltage protection circuit has gone out on the D-board and will need to be replaced. The fuse to the power supply is probably fine. A good repair tech shouldn't charge over $125 for this and it only takes a couple of hours. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
That is a linearity coil not a diode. The coild can be replaced on its own and possibly the board patched up as long as you know where the burned traces go to. The only other way to get the board fixed since RCA never sold main board is go to http://www.ptscorp.com/ and contact them on rebuilding the board. You wil have to ship it to them and once they are done they will ship it back. It probably isn't worh the cost though.
