Question about Televison & Video
We were flipping breakers to find the one our stove was connected on, and our TV was turned off at the time. It has never given us a moment of trouble before, however, now it will not turn on at all. The front buttons won't work; the remote won't turn it on. We've put new batteries in the remote; unplugged the TV for several days even before plugging it back in. We tried every trick in the RCA User's Guide under "TV Won't Turn On." Nothing. It's a P32649.
Your beloved TV is dead. However, don't panic. Take your TV to a good (reputable) repair shop. They will most liekly get it working again. Such repairs cost around US$50-60 (in my shop anyhow).

Assuming you are absolutely sure the TV is getting power,
If you have an ohmmeter, measure the resistance between the two prongs on its plug. If no conductivity (over 1 meg Ohm) the fuse inside is popped. Take the cover off, look in the area near the power cord, it is the usual 5AG type (glass cylinder) fuse. If you replace it and it pops again then measure all the diodes in the rectifier circuit (near the fuse).
Many times power transients will just blow these input power devices. However, many times it will go much deeper and get the TV's processor brain. If the TV is anywhere near 10 years old, I wouldn't go any deeper than the input power circuit.
