Problems with my TV

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.

I have a rca hd tv 42 inch model #40LA45RQ stays on for about 15min to half hour goes off please help

Check the lamp cooling fan. If the fan is faulty then the lamp will become overheated and the protection circuit will turn it off . you can see the fan near the lamp housing.

Rca hdtv 52inch will play fine then picture goes black but still has sound.. after a few mins.picture will come back on , and will play fine could last all day or may go out again in a few mins.

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?

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
