Power flashing on and off

My RCA truflat TV stopped working without any signs of problems, now when I try to turn the TV on all I get is a flashing power button and it sounds like it is trying to turn on. What do you think it could be?

If the TV goes in standby, then it is in protection mode.

Ensure also that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending
bad signal, check if you get same problem on DVD with no receiver box
connected.

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible causes.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , starting the flashing light.

If you are in situation one, then the TV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

On LCD Pay particular attention at inverter and power board, power board can be inspected looking for bulged or leaking capacitors, then tested with a multimeter. The inverter is more difficult to test , there is need to read voltages, should be done by a tech. Also the LCD controller board can cause same problem

On Plasma, test Sustain (Ysus/Zsus) / Buffer boards , cables to plasma, digital board and power board.

On Rear Projection : check lamp, lamp ballast, power board, and convergence.

On CRT TVs, check ballast , flyback transformer, CRT, Tuner, Convergence.

My rca truflat 27f520t27'' tv keeps turning off and all


There is some shorted component/s on the main power supply regulator baord to your TV. Work with main power board circuit is fatal to any inexperienced person, as 80% of the components at this stage will be Hot [electrically], when the set is switched ON. Without switch it ON, you cant check the voltages at this section. S, if you are not experienced to do this work, contact any experienced service technician to get this set repaired.

Does the red light come on on the front of the TV to let you know it is getting power? Does the menu come on? If the menu desn't come or the red light you might need to take it to RCA or a good repair place. If you checked different outlets it sseems to be a TV problem.
