No reset on this model---if no power light at all begin by following power cord in to the set to check the fuse.

Set should also have several green leds that have to light.

Tv zooms in and out then turns itself off

There can be several causes for this, few of which you can do anything about. However, a few things to try.

1) Replace the batteries on your remote control.
2) Try resetting the logic functions on your tv by unplugging it for a minute, then plugging it back in.
3) Try covering up the infra-red receptor on the front of your TV to see if you're getting unwanted signals from the receptor. taping a piece of foil over that area is perfect. If it doesn't stop after doing these two things you'll probably need to take it to a shop.
4) If this does stop it, then look for unexpected signal sources. Have you added a remote control extender? Added a new device to your audio-video system? Changed to a new remote?

Good luck with your problem...I hope you can work it out.

Look up your user manual, it sounds like your zoom feature has been activated to the max. I have a Zenith backlit LCD TV and it has a zoom feature you control from your remote. You could open up your on screen menu and find the place to reset the TV to factory settings that should clear up the problem.

Picture too large for screen on Sony KP 57WS520

If you are using a cable or satellite receiver to tune your channels, they have settings that may be causing the problem. There should be a menu option for System Settings or something similar. Make sure that no type of Zoom has been turned on. Also ensure that your type of TV is set properly. If your TV is a Widescreen then make sure either that or 16:9 is chosen. If all of those settings are correct, and there is no Zoom feature is turned on your TV then there maybe an internal issue with the TV. You'll have to get a technician in to find the problem or check the internal settings that only he can access.

the cable remote has a zoom feature in the settings. the zoom setting got turned on somehow. This feature overrides the picture size settings on the tv.
so, not a tv problem at all, but easily missed.

Run it through the different 'MODE' settings. it may really be on zoom, or just confused.

Also, try unplugging it for a minute. plug it back in and see if it's better.

RCA HDTV zoom settings

I had the same problem when I bought my TV. Looking at your remote try pushing the left arrow button. The left and right arrows work the zoom feature. It also sets the picture format. Try it and post your results.
