    Our TV will not turn on. The power button will light up green when you try to turn it on and it will stay on for a moment but the TV does not turn on. Any ideas on what the problem might be?

Unless you are savvy with IC's you are going to have to go to the repair shop my friend. The crappy part is that the IC has a price tag of about $10.00 but a repair shop is going to nail you anywhere from $80.00-$120.00. Sorry for the bad news but it happens.

Probably not. RCA parts for this model are very difficult to find. Even you could find a kit, it will not have enough to repair. A do it yourselfer or TV tech will have a difficult time repairing this. Please shop for a new TV. Thanks for asking and show a few hands of support!

The set tries 3 times to come on (3 blinks) if there a problem such as a short, it will cycle without turning on. Unfortunately your set is notorious for having bad flyback transformers. Most likely the horizontal output transistor is shorted as well. Common causes for your symptom are: LL05 (horiz out transformer) RCA part# 257805; TL 02 ( horiz output transistor) 2SC5148; and open connections on the printed circuit board at LL 04 and L14401 (coils) all of which can cause the horizontal output transistor to be shorted.
