    I finally was able to work on this tv, I cleaned the interior and it came back on for about 1/2 an hour for a moment I was happy but then it shut off again I tried to readjust the flyback but no luck. I like this tv because it has a digital tunner... I will continue looking for a fix,  if you or some one can help me to find a solution I will really apreciate that thank you.

After replacing the flyback transforer and horizontal synch transistor you will need to adjust the flyback transofrmer as follows:

Turn each setting to just above mid point clockwise, turn the tv on and you should see a white screen with retrace lines in it just before the tv turns back off. set yourself up with a plastic screw driver and prepare for adjusting the focus(top adjustment) turn the tv on and adjust the focus by looking at the pixels on the screen. repeat as needed to complete.

Next setup for the brightness (lower adjustment) turn the tv on and adjust the brightness to where the screen appears to be black(no haze or lines). After the tv turns off wait a few seconds and turnit back on, it should stay on, if not then the brightness setting it too far one way or the other and "TecniklyNuts" it correct, the system detects the setting out of range and turns the tv off. Repeat the two adjustments until the system stays on.

Most likely the TV is detecting an internal problem with it's circuitry and is shutting itself off to prevent further damage. You'll need to have a professional look at your set to determine exacly what's going on. Aside from leaving the power cord unplugged for five minutes, then pluggin back in and trying it again, there's nothing anyone can do from here. It may work, but it's a long shot.

Hope this helps, and please rate my advice, good OR bad.

Good luck!

In our experience, mortons153 is right on the money. We just replaced a fly in one of these and had to "play" for a good 15 minutes to get it balanced out to allow the set to run. RCA strikes again with decent features for the money, but still a cheaply built set. The old gray mare just ain't what she used ta be...

I have seen similar shutdowns after changing the flyback. if the screen and focus are not set just right the abl circuit will shut this puppy down in a heartbeat. the controls are on the side of the flyback. this may not be your problem but its easy enough to try.

The first couple of seconds of operation, most TVs are doing some self-test and if something has failed making full power on dangerous (for fire) they will shut down. Either a major component in the horizontal section has failed or the main power supply itself is defective.

Ihave a rca 27v414t. the problem is it won't turn

Any malfunction associated with a flashing light usually indicates a circuit problem or defective component. Unfortunately, the days of taking off the back cover of your TV and replacing a defective tube or fuse are long gone. Proper servicing will require troubleshooting procedures that can only be performed by a qualified electronic repair facility or professional television repair person. Ask for an estimate and a realistic appraisal of whether the set can be adequately fixed. Depending on the age and condition of your TV it may not be cost effective to repair.

Picture freezes and turns its self off and then turns back on

this happened to me with my RCA Sceium 52 inch floor model, for 2 years before I figured out it was
over heating. Of course I had no money to fix problem. What I did is simply put a cool fan on back
or AC. Even rolling in front of a sliding glass door when its cool out will work well. Cold air on back
will stop it from turning off.

Good luck
