Watching t.v. one day and it turned off by itself and since then hasnt come back on. If you press the power button it will flash green and it will ping as if it is trying to come on. Then we'll get this really weird smell coming from the back.

The set tries 3 times to come on (3 blinks) if there a problem such as a short, it will cycle without turning on. Unfortunately your set is notorious for having bad flyback transformers. Most likely the horizontal output transistor is shorted as well. Common causes for your symptom are: LL05 (horiz out transformer) RCA part# 257805; TL 02 ( horiz output transistor) 2SC5148; and open connections on the printed circuit board at LL 04 and L14401 (coils) all of which can cause the horizontal output transistor to be shorted.
Followed Terryfic's solution. I am a DIYer and managed to order the part, desolder the old one and solder in the new one. However, when I turned it back on I got a black screen with sound. Hmmm, saw the adjustment screws but was hesitant. Ended up turning about 10 degrees one way and presto chango... Saved a $1200 upgrade to HD for a $30 part! Thanks
Question? Whenever I turn on the television, the GUIDE Plus+™ or GUIDE Plus+ GOLD™ on-screen program guide automatically comes on. Answer: The GUIDE Plus+™ or GUIDE Plus+ GOLD™ on-screen program guide automatically comes up when you use the TV button on the remote to turn on the TV. There are several ways to turn off this function if you wish, depending on your model.
Option A: Select the GUIDE Plus+™ Menu from the Main menu. Select Setup. Select Options. Select Off.
Option B: Select the GUIDE Plus+™ Menu from the Main menu. Select GUIDE Plus+™ Auto Display from the GUIDE Plus+ menu. Select Off.
Option C: Press GUIDE on your remote control. Select the Menu bar. Press the right arrow button to select Setup. Choose Review Options. Select Off.
I know Option C worked for me!!
Given the many TV models, it's possible that accessing control of this feature in the Program Guide menu may differ on your TV. For specific instructions for your model, see your owner's manual.
Question do you see green led or light when pressing power button? If you can also listen for a high pitch noise coming from back of set. This would be an indication that the set has powersuppy problem or high voltage problems. If the set is dead and no noise then maybe fuse or open circuit.
