Question about RCA HD50LPW175 50" HDTV

RCA Television D52W14

When I try to turn the TV on with the remote, the power button lights up for 5 seconds then turns off. There is no picture or sound. It does this 3 times.

I tried the front panel buttons and the same thing happens. I have unplugged the television and plugged it back in. I finally unplugged it all night and plugged it in. As soon as I try to get the power on- the light stays on for 5 seconds, goes off, clicks on again for 5 seconds and goes off, and finally goes on again for 5 seconds and then shuts off. No picture or sound.

Can anyone advise what to do?

That model is famous for bad flybacks that shut the set down and there is no warning they just quit working. If you need further info please let me know.

The first thing in this unit is to check the ribbon cable that goes from the front control panel to the back ssb board, I would unplug and replug to make sure seated properly. Then try it again. There are alot of screws to take out but worth it if this solves the problem.
