RCA TV Model 27V412T Standby light on but will not power up

My 2 year old 27" RCA (Video game machine) will not power on.  The standby light is on but the power button will not start the TV.  Do not have the remote (just moved) and it is in some yet unpacked box?  Is it just dead?

    My problem is the same on my RCA 36 - Stanby Light blinks but no power. The book says service is needed. THis happened during while using a standby generator but there was a power surge protector in use. I'm trying to decide if it is worth calling a repair man or just trashing.

    I have a similiar doesn't happen all the time but sometimes when I turn my tv on it will click off after about 2 seconds then the light will just keep blinking but nothing will show up...all I do is unplug the tv from the surge protector and plug it back in and then turn it back on and it works...its a pain sometimes but I'm glad it turns on cause its only over a year old

LED52B45RQ RCA TV will not turn on

Could be an open internal fuse or power supply failure. The "standby light" merely indicates that power is getting to the TV.

RCA truflat tv locked and is on standby mode. I have a universal remote but the remote will not work if the tv is on standby I need to find out how to unlock the tv with out the remote so I could turn it...

Okay, do this.

On the top of the t.v. itself, hold down the Volume+ (up) and the Menu button down at the same time. This will turn off the "power lock." This is also how you turn on the "power lock." (Though I can't think of a reason anyone would ever want to do this.)

Also the problem ca be from factory defect in the if and video section of the tv only the manufacturer could remedy that.take it to a tech so that the video board and the IF board be replaced

Hope it helps...Thanks ....feel free to contact me back ....Ok ?..

I have a 27 inches RCA TV (model:27R410T) , Firstable when i turn the tv on ,it works fine but just for about 2 minutes , after that video has gone , no video only audio ,and start changing channels...

It maybe some semiconductor IC got hot, need service or repair. It may repair itself if you leave it on standby for a month(at operating temprature a week)? This is low tempeature(the lower the temperature the longer the time) annealing or moisture curing technology, used by Nasa on transistor failure in satellites, or long range unmanned vehicles. You can always repair the unit later.

If the front panel lock is on, you will need a working original remote (or a universal remote properly programmed for RCA) to turn the set on. The IR receiver is next to the buttons on the fromt but the RCA IR receivers are very reliable, and I have yet to see a bad one in a modern RCA TV. Once you turn the set on by remote, you can enter the menu and turn the FPA off.
