This set has problems with the ribbon that come from front panel back to ssb. Make sure it's on tight, pull off and reconnect. This will be the first thing to try. For more info

Tv won't turn on. It turned off after a few minutes and won't turn back on. We opened it up and replaced the fuse.Didn't change anything. A friend said that it just seems to not be getting any...

does the power light flash three times slowly then stay off? If so chances are its just the CP150, cp120 and CP114 capacitors. There is the RCA repair kit by that same name available from which has the capacitors and the CD with repair instructions

Tv has been turning off right after you turn it on then after a few attempts it would stay on now the power button on front turns green, it tries to come on but then turns off.

Sounds like high voltage power supply has gone bad. You can try purchasing new PS online and replacing yourself if handy or you will need to bring in for service.
