RCA SDTV Model #27V514T

The TV is about 1 1/2 years old. This morning I was watching the news, and it just went off. It will not come back on. The red power indicater blinks on and off, but a picture does not appear. Also no sound. What could it be? And is it worth taking it to a repair shop or should I just buy a new TV.

Thanks for your help.

    My TV was playing this morning. I turned it off when I got ready to leave home. My daughter tried to turn it on while I was out and she called me and said it would not come on. the remote does not work with it at this time either. It will not turn off or on with the remove. If I try to turn it off or on manually it will not work. I unplugged it and plugged it back in, it still don't work you can only here the click noise to let you know that it is plugged back in but there is no picture or sound. Is it worth getting it fix or buying another TV.

May want to take it in and have the power supply checked. Sounds like you may have blown a fuse inside. Very easy fixed yourself if you can find the right size fuse. Go online and try to find a manual for you model. Good Luck !!

Does it make a squeal sound while plugged in to power? If so, possible horizontal output shorted. $150-$200 about.

RCA 27 NO PIC / SOUND - Binking green light

I ouldn't find any good news on the web about this,
so i did a bit of research and discovered that it wouldn't cost me much more than the cost of repair if I went to Best Buy and bought a new HD-TV.
Wow ! The prices have really come down !
Now I'm glad that it malfunctioned !

Tv wont turn on

it sounds to me a transformer in your set has gone hard to say witch. im guessing it is a CRT set the best thing i could suggest would be to take it to your local tv repair shop they should be able to sort this for you and it shouldn't be to expensive.

Possessed TV

Either get a priest to do an exorcism..... or it sounds like an internal issue.... likely a bad capacitor. if you are able to do some basic troubleshooting ... remove the back and look for any capacitors with rounded tops.
