May I know if the LED light at the front panel has a pattern offlashesor flashing continuouslyin green color.
Please check if you can access the "Self diagnostic screen" by following the steps below. - To activate, press the front panel "Activity" and "Channel down" buttons at the same time and hold for 5 secs. The Status led will then flash a two digit code. Example, if the error code is "23" the led light flashes2 times(blink, blink)pauseand then flash3 times(blink, blink, blink). Let me know the error code, it will help to diagnose where the fault came from. Note: the TV must be inshutdownnot switched off, or AC power cord is removed because the code will reset to "12" means no error. Use the front panel buttons not on the remote control. If you can't access the self diagnostic, press and hold the "Activity" button on the front panel for 5 secs before entering the "self diagnostic" code.
This is an on-going problem with DLP sets. Normally you shut the set off and the cooling fan cools the lamp down and then it shuts off. In your case, of which it's not your fault, however your lamp has taken a major hit by not properly cooling down, in turn, you need to replace your lamp at this time.
I suggest in the future if you have an electrical storm and a chance of a power outage while your watching tv, I would'nt play that model or any other model of a DLP set.
the 5 blink error is caused by faulty capacitors on the power board. There is a kit called the ATC336 power supply repair kit which contains the replacement capacitors and instructions that will usually repair that. You can get the repair kit at the following link. http://servicemanuals.vstore.ca/

It has gone into protection mode. This is caused when a short circuit is detected by the power management system inside the tv.
Try a hard reset: Unplug the power cord for a full 4 hours; then try it again and see if it will clear the protection fault and reset it.
If the reset does not help you will need to have a tech look at the set and take voltage measurements inside to determine which section of the tv has failed and what components will need replacement.
The cost of repair is always over $200 and could be much more, depending on the specific parts that need replacing. If the ICs have burned out the repair is around $400.
The flashing of the standby light may mean something, but I do not know the diagnostic code RCA is using; most RCA models do not have any diagnostic blink codes in the set.
Hope this helps. Let me know if I can help further.
