What's the model number off of the back of the RCA please? Also were there any storms, power outages, etc.?

SLD58G4RQ

That number is ***** quite correct- I will need you to double check that. Also the set shutting itself off by itself indicates a hardware failure (generally with the power supply board) and requires repairs.

However it's worth it to try a hard reset, as sometimes the processor in the TV can simply have locked up.

The first thing you would try, is disconnect the set from power, then press and hold the power button on the TV itself (not the remote), for 10 seconds and release. Then plug the set back in, and also check that the power cord is connected tight at the TV as well. Press power once, and see if the set powers up normally. Try this procedure up to 2 times, and please let me know what happens.

WE HAD A 3YR EXTEND WARRANT PROTECT CARE, THAT DID NOT WORK THE TV CUT BACK OFF

Thanks for the reply and sorry to hear that. Unfortunately this indicates the power supply board has failed and needs to be replaced. This is not uncommon with lower end TV's like the RCA I'm afraid and you'll need to contact the warranty service to schedule a warranty on the repair I'm afraid.
