three strikes and it's out... rca does this, it is just showing it has tried 3 times for you and untill it is unplugged it won't try again.. you need to provide model #.. could be a few different things
hissing usually meens you have high voltage...that's good but then what don't you have?
ctc 169 - 179 could be high voltage divider... need more info
If I had a model # it would be helpful but my guess is the deflection circuit failed and a fuse opened in that circuit. Could be vertical or hoizontal circuit failure but either way you will need test equip. as well as solder/desolder equip. to repair it. If set is over 10-12 years old you may consider replacing set in this case Sorry I can't be more help.
Connect up another set right next to that set thats going out to make sure the cable or that line is not bad. It soukds as though you may have an intermittant tuner assembly inside the TV set. Its also a possablity that there could be a bad solder connectiuon in or around the tuner assembley. Not really a job for the user, as this set has hot and cold chassis, and can give a mean shock if you do not have the know how to work on these monsters. good Luck
