I have a 42 inch RCA LCD HDTV and just recently the TV does not turn on anymore. What happens is when i plug the TV in to the wall jack the green button turns on and tries to start. During the time when the green light is on, there is a clicking sound that comes from the TV and its not very loud at all. After about 10-15 seconds the green light turns red and keeps blinking. I cannot use any of the controls on the TV, for example i cannot turn it on or off anymore. I have to resort to unplugging the tv and plugging it back in. The whole process starts over again. I would appreciate your help. Thanks.

My tv is relatively new, but the bad thing is that I had an old; big screen tube type rca model; home theatre, that was heavier than a car, and it went out, due to the cracking and popping sound, off sometimes, and back on.
What is strange is the new tv now, the hdtv, light weight, about five years old, is doing the same thing. Actually, now, the power will not even come on. The lcd green light in the front goes on and off.
Take no offense, but I thought I would not have these problems anymore. What do you suggest?
This might sound a little crazy but, i had the same problem with my rca 50 inch, and he changed the bulb. which are pretty $$$$$125.00 at my tv repair person cost. the real cast was $219.00.Hope this helps you
as far as it turning off on its own I would get a fan on it and see if that make a difference make sure that the fan is able to flow around the tv especially through the back of it, if this stops it from turning off then it is an overheating problem
