    My husband checked fuses and they are good. There is no noise when pushing power button.

    when you unplug tv and plug it back in there are sparks at the outlet where the tv is plugged into.

    We will check the Horizontal output and low voltage regulators and let you know what we find.

    Thank you for your help. My husband will check the horizontal output and diode. It seems like a diode was replaced sometime back maybe a few years ago when the tv was still on waranty with Sears.

    I am having a *very* similar problem.

    My Relay clicks, but nothing happens when I hit the power button. I understand I need a multi meter to test the Voltage Regulators.

    How would I go about testing the Horizontal Output and/ or check the Diodes/which Diodes should I look at?

    Much thanks!

    Have you checked the fuses? Can you hear anything when trying the power button? The first things I always check in a dead set after the fuses is. Listen for the relay to click. Then check the Horizontal output and low voltage regulators.

    If there are sparks you definately have a short. Probaly Horizontal output is shorted or a diode opened.

Tv willnot turn on

Mine just did the same thing on the same day, same tv. we bought ours from Walmart exactly one year ago and after spending time on internet, i have found that alot of us with the same tv have had same problem with no avail from RCA company or walmart. i can't get help from anyone and am ready to scream. Good luck. Others have told me that they have had repair man out and said that it was a malfunction is some type board that he has seen over and over in this tv and he advised to just buy another tv because it was too costly and the problems were going to keep coming with this specific model

Buzzing sound

I'm no Expert, but I have worked for a major statelite tv company for the past 7 years,one thing you can check besides the channels, would be the video inputs, see if you have the same issues with different components dvd vcr etc.. if so it would be narrowed to the tv or poss connections to the tele..
