If there is no exposed fuse holder located near the power cord entrance, you will have to remove some section of the back to access any existing internal fuse.
Do this only with the power plug removed from the wall.

While fuses do die of metal fatigue (expanding and contracting of the element) it isn't that common and it may be a sign of more serious problems.
If you find one to replace, get two and if the first replacement fails again, save the other for the service tech.

My RCA HDTV d52w20 won't turn on


Many times located inside the TV is a small fuse. It's very possible that this fuse has blown. Open the TV up and locate it and if it's blown take it to Radio shack and they can help you find the proper replacement. Hope this helps!

TV shuts off immidiatly when you try turn it it on


I had a Sony that did the same thing. It ended up being a blown fuse on the board. Check to see if any of the fuses are blown. They're cheap and easy to replace usually. Make sure you use the same amperage fuse when replacing.

TV wont stay on


shutting down can be due to a blown fuse usually in the convergence section. the fuses are soldered in, with a voltmeter you can measure the fuses. if one is open then probably your convergence ICs are bad. about $250-$400 to have a field tech come to you and replace them. The other possiblity is a CRT (picture tube) fluid leak. this is more costly to fix, to check for a fluid leak pull the front lower panel and check for fluid on the chassis with a flashlight. I have sucessfully cleaning fluid from the chassis with electrical cleaner spray. after covering the chassis with a piece of plastic the set worked fine. A slow drip leak won't hurt the plastic, big leaks are another story.
hope this helps

Tv is pluged in,will not come on when on button is pushed


is the unit competly dead? no flashing lights.first unplug the set for 30 min then plug back up and try again if there is no lights then i suspect main fuse has blown. however this does not mean replaceing will fix. something has shorted to cause fuse to blow if there is flashing then the computer in the set has seen something wrong and shut down.

If you have Hitachi model number 50UX58B, 60UX58B, 50UX58K, 60UX58K, 50SBX78B or 60SBX78B and you have the following symptoms you may want to grab a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kit that includes the parts and instructions to fix these models. This is a fairly common problem with the above model numbers. It is typically caused by a blown capacitor and pico fuse. Again, you can get a kit from the above address. 
Here are the symptoms...

Primary Symptom: No Audio or Video. Power light will come on briefly then shut off.

TV not staying on


If you're NOT still under warranty you should at least open the TV and look for a blown fuse near where the power cable enters the set. A lot of times you can buy replacement fuses at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace. Check the fuse. If it is blown, it will be obvious and make sure that the set is unplugged before replacing it. If it blows again, or if it is not blown, your problem is probably in the 'X' volt regulator and you will need professional help with the repairs. You can also check the board where the components are mounted and resoled any that look bad. Brief power outages may cause the TV to turn off on its own. If you are using a surge protector, try connecting the set directly to the wall outlet. In your case it could caused by a blown fuse, a leaky diodes or a bad solder joint at the horizontal drive transformer. All can be replaced at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace If this does not correct the problem, you may need to have your TV serviced. good luck!
