Sounds like a power supply failure. I would check the main AC fuse (should be 5 amps) and see if it is blown. If the fuse looks black then you have a hard short in the power supply that will require some technicial troubleshooting. At this point being a CTC169 chassis means the set goes back over 10 years ann most likely not worth investing in a repair.

RCA 27 NO PIC / SOUND - Binking green light

I ouldn't find any good news on the web about this,
so i did a bit of research and discovered that it wouldn't cost me much more than the cost of repair if I went to Best Buy and bought a new HD-TV.
Wow ! The prices have really come down !
Now I'm glad that it malfunctioned !
