Question about RCA Televison & Video
I inherited an RCA F20580wn from my parents when I went to college. It's an oldie but, until this point, a goodie. I have been unable to find the manual in the house or online. I recently moved and up until then it worked perfectly. It doesn't turn on. I want to say that I heard it "click" when I tried to turn it on but, it was noisy and it hasn't "clicked" since the first time I possibly heard it. I follow specific instructions well but, I am not very electronically inclined. I can't afford a new tv at this point so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
If you have tried different electric outlets and it still doesn't work, then most likely the internal power supply has failed and needs repair.

This sounds like it could be a malfunction in the High Voltage section of the TV. The shutdown circuit is switching on and preventing the TV from turning on. This might be due to an excessive amount of current flow possibly caused by a shorted turn in the Integrated High Voltage Transformer (IHVT), or a shorted Horizontal Output Transistor (HOT). To test this you will have to unplug the TV set, and with a multimeter set to resistance, measure the resistance from the collector of the HOT to ground, If it reads 0 ohms then that is the problem (a shorted HOT). The next test which is of the IHVT is a little difficult because it requires removing the IHVT and doing a ring test. At this point I would like to suggest that you take the TV to a repair shop, because these next test might be difficult for someone who does not know electronics, and if you have no knowledge of electronics you may do more damage then good.
With that being said:
Remove the HV anode of the IHVT connected to the CRT by first using a large flathead screwdriver connected with a clip lead to the ground of the TV, by sliding the screwdriver under the rubber cap and releasing the clips. Then unsolder the pins on the bottom of the IHVT using a soldering iron and a suction type desoldering pump. when the solder is removed , pull the IHVT from the circuit board. locating the main primary winding connect it to the device that you are using to perform your ring test (I use a Sencore LC-102), when it is connected do the ring test and it should have at least 10 rings to be considered good, any less then 10 and the IHVT is to be considered as bad.
I hope this helps.

SOURCE: RCA 36' tube tv won't turn on
possible that a fuse blew while transferring tv, most like to happen despite care in handling if tv was on for a while, kind of like moving a light bulb that is hot and suddenly filament breaks when you move the bulb slightly. Other than that I'd say it's a good time to get a new tv just in time too for the digital transition.

Tips for a great answer:
Hold down MENU
on the remote and VOLUME DOWN on the TV it's self at the same time for at least
4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked
Hold down the 0
on the remote and the VOLUME DOWN buttons on the TV its self at the same time
for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked
Hold down the
MENU button on the front of the TV and the TV button on the remote at the same
time for at least 4 seconds.
Hold down GO
BACK on the remote and MENU on the front of the TV at the same time for at
least 4 seconds.
Hold down EJECT
on the front of the TV and the MENU button on the remote at the same time for
at least 4 seconds.
Depending on the model, one of the methods should unlock the V-chip. Now, if desired, you can change the settings on the V-chip by going to the MENU and going to PARENTAL CONTROLS, or on some sets, going to MENU and then going to TV SETUP, then to V-CHIP SET.
