RCA T.V. model #32V420T, manufacture date July 2005. It quit, does nothing, no pop humm lights nothing. Does it have a reset button or is it dead? Thank you for your time.

be sure to check the plug and wall socket first if there is no problem there , then a fuse in the tv went or there is a component problem and it will need to be tested to determine the cause of the shut down , then you will need to call your local repair shop to see if they can fix it at your home or they will take the main board in for the repair
if you need any more assistance don't hesitate to ask

Tv wont turn on

The loud pop was a capacitor blowing up or the high voltage transformer blew up. Very common problem.. if its the Transformer be expected to pay 250 or more to have repaired.
