Problem: No picture, no sound
Background: TV purchased early 2006 (manufactured feb 06) No problems till last week, TV was on. Sound/picture disappeared. Red power light remained illuminated. Tried to turn off tv, panel button AND remote button failed to turn it off. I unplugged the TV, plugged it back in and pressed the power button. RED power light flashes 25 times, goes steady, no pic/no sound. Same result with front panel and remote buttons. Checked fuses w/neg blown. No abnormalities previous to this episode. Noticed other problems similiar but didn't quite seem the same as mine. Apologies if this is a repost though.

The TV was making the clicking noise and not turning on because an internal error was being detected.
Now things had got worse , and something had blown inside the TV.
The burning smell and high pitched noise is coming either from Flyback transformer or PSU board. Repair is a delicate matter and must be done by a technician.
This model has a history of being plaged with bad solder connections, and that may be your problem still today. If your state has "lemon laws" you might want to pursue that venue if contacting RCA directly doesn't produce results. RCA's have been my bread and butter for at least the last 12 or so years in the service business but I would not buy one today for myself.
