I went home yesterday and removed my plug from the power bar that is was plugged into and the picture came back on and stayed on for a while, but again it shut itself off... but when it came back on it went to channel 64 and the volume was all the way up to the max. I too have not had this tv for very long ...about 2 years roughly. I used to work for Thomsons/RCA and to be honest I will never buy another one. The price was up there and I even bought the matching DVD player....I am not impressed....

i have a l32wd22 rca -----went out -- the plug from the power cord to the power supply [ a two prong jack on the side of power supply was loose]
i bent the pins slightly then plug it back in and also taped it in place---now it works fine
A 1995 60 inch rca good picture and sound. Then it started a cracking noise and a hissing sound, then the picture went blurry. then it was nice picture and sound, then it died. took the back off and turned out the lights. Plugged the tv in and out from the wall socket and there was a sparking noise and a small arc when i plugged it in and out a few times ,at the part that the power plug plugs into.The white part that is beside the white power plug part has thick red wire coming out of it and goes into another plug that has more red wires in it. but the big white part beside the power plug part looks burnt and has black powder on it. that part is probably the problem but maybe not, what it the name of that part and how much would it cost and is it plugged in or soldered.
Could anything have spilled inside? Since you weren't home you can't be sure. unplug set, get a handheld hairdryer and blow thru the tv side vents for a half hour on medium. Move the dryer around all vent locations. Plug tv back in when done and let me know.
I had this same exact issue yesterday. I own the same TV model and here is what SONY had me do to get the picture back. Ultimately the picture comes back, but it will be very dim and needs repair. Most likely a power supply issue. Try these steps:
-Press power off or leave with standby light on for 5 minutes (wait the full 5 minutes) -Unplug TV / Press top buttons 5 times each to remove static from system boards (yes, each button 5 times each) -Wait one full minute and plug TV in and press power on
