Question Mitsubishi Big Screen Won't Stay On

I just received a Mitsubishi VS6004R big screen TV for free. The only problem is, it won't turn on. When I hit the power button, it clicks on, then clicks right back off, almost instantly. Unfortunately, I know virtually nothing about home electronics repair, so I'm having a hard time troubleshooting.

I know it's kind of an older set (1991, perhaps), but even an old big screen is better than my current 32" set. Any suggestions that might keep a costly repair tech at bay?

Thanks in advance,

Ok this is what to do..,

UNPLUG the set from the wall, and then with screwdriver in hand remove the back plastic cover., Inside don't touch nothing !! ,, just look ..

If you see a lot of dust.., that is the problem. So you have to blow away the dust with a can of air, or i even used a suction vacuum cleaner with horsehair and rubber connector. The dust is what is causing the shutting off.
If you feel you don't want to do this, have a experienced person do this .
