    I bought my TV with the same issue. When I first try and turn it on in the morning the green light comes on for 5 seconds and then goes off, then on again and off twice more. After waiting 45 seconds in between tries, the TV will eventually come on after a few tries.

Ok first thing is that you know is that it is not a main fuse. The main processor is recieving power otherwise you would not get the front green panel light... So in thse set if the processor is detecting a problem unfortunalty it cound be on of about 45 different resons that can happen. so this is where the troubleshooting begins. Question i need to ask does the light flash or stay green... technicans do have specail computer interface equipment that read the errors to help to determine the fault. if you are a technician. (IF YOU ARE a technician) you can check things like HOrizntal trasitor, and some basic voltages.

RCA 52 inch fuzzy screen no buttons work no sound cable doesnt work on it just fuzz

First is you removed power by unplugging the surge protector---this may have confused the micro in the set.

Unplug the set itself (with it turned off) for a while and plug it back to see--sounds like this is your problem to me. Usually in this case only the on/off button on the set works.
