    I have an RCA tv with a CTC-130 chassis. One day, it would not turn on.
    Found bad line fuse and shorted HOT. Replaced fuse and HOT. It only
    powers up for a second and shuts off (fuse and HOT are OK). Found a
    shorted SCR, in the shutdown circuit.

    What could have caused the SCR to short out? What should I be looking for.

    Also, how critical is the type of SCR used as a replacement?

    OEM if you can find it, also check the control circuitry around that device,
    there are probably associated components that are also affected.
