RCA Model F36450 Chassis ATC113CA1 won't power up

The LED in the Power button blinks a few times and I hear a few clicks inside the TV (perhaps a relay?), but the set shuts down before it powers up. Screen is dead. The fuse on the 115VAC input has good continuity. This problem may have been caused by a power surge from a lightening storm, but I can't place the timing. I suspect a problem in the power supply but don't have a service manual. Can someone please provide me with test points and voltage values in the power supply so I can try to isolate this problem? I repair military circuit boards and power supplies for a living but don't have the schematic or manual for this TV. Does this TV have a service mode where it will display error codes? If so, how do I enter the service mode? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Is the problem most likely in the power supply or could something else cause these symptoms? Thanks in advance!

Re: RCA Model F36450 Chassis ATC113CA1 won't power up

No sir it probably isent a power supply problem as in these sets it wouldnt act like that. First thingm to check since you say your a service tech, is in the horizontal output check and see if the horiz. output transistors shorted. If its not then check a small coil off the base of the horizontal output transistor. its really the base drive coil so take it out and scrap off the ends BOTH ENDS and reinsert and also resolder the horizontal driver transformer. This may or may not fix your problem But if it dosent order if you think ther sets wrth it the flyback transformer as this is a big problem in these sets if the for mentioned things did do the trick. follow the kit instructions that come with the flyback transformer!! Dont take any short cuts. Make sure you do take out the horizontal output transitor or at least unsolder all the leads when tesating it for a short. Good luck

These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.
Blinking codes details to many popular brand TVs are given. Surf the site with patience.

I have a RCA TV model F32650 Chassis ATC113CA1 and when i turn it on the green on light comes on and off 3 times then shuts off, i put a new fuse but it still does same on off 3 times, does anyone know...

I already figured out that my flyback transformer was bad, this is an ongoing problem with a lot of RCA CRT televisions because RCA used very cheap parts in order to save them more money, rather than making there customers happy with good quality parts, and my TV was made in MEXICO, and that my friends is why we the American people are getting screwed. (Shame on you RCA)

RCA 36' tube tv won't turn on

possible that a fuse blew while transferring tv, most like to happen despite care in handling if tv was on for a while, kind of like moving a light bulb that is hot and suddenly filament breaks when you move the bulb slightly. Other than that I'd say it's a good time to get a new tv just in time too for the digital transition.

High pitch noise and the power light flashes.

most likely it is the flyback transformer. I have had meny RCA tv's with a bad Flyback and H.O.T transistor bad. Cost depends on the service center. Parts average around $60.00 dealer, so depending on mark up and shop labor it could vary greatly. If you have never changed these parts it is best to have a service man do it ... Take it to the shop and save the trip call charge $49.00 and up to $125.00..

Unit trys to go on but than shuts off...please HELP!!!

It's one of the protection overload circuits connected to the high voltage power supply. I would take it to a repair shop and let them fix it for $200.00. A TV is no place for a novice. Even if its unplugged, it can seriously hurt you.

This could cause a problem, because modern TVs and most other entertainment electronic goods, have a small kind of computer chip, but there should be a Reset button probably inside the set! If you feel confident about computer chips you may be able to find the button by tracing the circuit.(Disconnected from the mains). Another idea is if there is a small button cell or battery inside, then try disconnecting it for a day. Good Luck!
