The Burning smell could be coming from either a defective transformer, High Voltage Divider - splitter or solder connections and resistors could be at fault as well. Leave the set unplugged until a Tech can work on it. It will not be a DIY job I'm afraid.

The smell and sound are that of a capacitor burst. If you open the back cover you will find wax around a cylindrical object. That's it. Replace it with an exactly the same item.

Turned on tv no picture only sound then i heard a pop and smelled burning tv turned itself off. 5 min tried turning on tv again nothing happened tv does not turn on at this time

Your RCA TV needs serious troubleshooting. Burning smell is from HV transformer or resistors smoking.

Most likely power supply and/or high voltage circuit or convergence circuit. Many times RCA have multiple or secondary faults that occur with HV or convergence failure.

Repair of RCA HV or convergence usually requires exact manufacturer parts and upgrades or repair in power supply. I would not advise trying this repair without manufacturer support for correct part numbers and service bulletins.

No picture

Burning smell can be caused by a blown component, a short, or dust burning inside circuits.
In all cases do not turn TV on untill the TV had been tested and the problem is fixed as you risk to cause further damage to the unit.

TV shuts off by itself and has a burning smell

mine is doing the same thing but i was able to pinpoint it to a capacitor arching and smoking. haven't replaced it yet so i'm not sure if it's just a bad capacitor or a more involved issue.

check of fluid leak from the tubes, check to see where the burning smell is comming from. could be anode, hv wire, splitter, surge caps in h-circuit, but it sounds like a high voltage transformer.
