Tv turns on then gradually goes green in next few seconds and then comletely shuts off. The light blinks 8 times in a row afterwards then pauses. how can i fix it?

If the lamp light is blinking, then the lamp needs to be replace. If the Power/Standby light is blinking, then try resetting the TV. Turn Off the TV and remove the power plug from the wall outlet for 1 minute and reconnect it and check the operation. If the issue still persists, then the TV needs service.

The tv just randomly turns off by itself

Check to see how many times it blinks when turning off and then look for the codes for Sony tv blinks. this will tell you what's wrong. This set is notorious for Shorted tubes.

Please post the model number of your RCA as usually its a bad flyback and start up capacitor when you get a 3 blink error code . But I can help you better if I have the model number of your set.
