I have an RCA model D56W20. When I press power, the light flashes 3 long flashes then nothing. No picture, no sound.

I may of seen a different version of this question a few days ago, The set has a 3 strikes and you are out (not a joke) as it will try 3 times when powered up to come on and then go into shutdown.

Most common issue is bad solder connections under the High voltage transformer (see photo of typical one).

Not knowing your skill level let me know how you want to proceed.

Why does my d56w20 link 3 times with a humming noise

3 Blinks is just saying that there is a problem , and the fault is often concerning teh deflection circuit. The pcb is located behind the back panel, on the bottom left hand side, the firt thing the technician will do is looking for leaky or bulged capacitors in there, checking horizontal and vertical output and testing the the resistors on the deflection circuit.

Keeps turningoff

I just posted a link for the manual. I would think that it may be solder related. RCA has some issues with their solder especially around the flyback and tuner sections.
