RCA HD61W66 Turns on then cuts off I NEED SOME HELP

I have a RCA HD61W66 T.V. I bought it brand new 2 years ago. I turned it on and it cut right back off a few minutes later. It kept on doing it staying on for a hour or 10 seconds. Now i press the power button the green light comes an then goes right back off. PLEASE, If someone can help me figure this problem out i would greatly appreciate it. I would hate to take it to a tv repair shop and pay like 400$ to get it fixed for just a 50$ part.

Ive had a similar model since 2002 and it had the same problem. Factory power supply to weak for the model. Mine was replaced twice before the upgrade came out. Sorry, I dont think it is a $.50 solution.
