    Same thing is happening with ours....was working fine, turned off, went to watch again and plugged in....no picture and a shrill screeching sound. I thought maybe it would work with a power surge protecter.... ? Let me know the resolution.

    hi plugged CRT tv RC-4120PS in just high pitch sound coming from the powersupply, have traced the sound to the high freq transfr not the lopt, PWR LED is on, so there is low voltages present from the powersupply,



    I have test the HOT (with damper) its fine. The voltage to the collector pin is 135V so B+ is fine,there's also outputs of 10V each on two 25v, 470uF ecaps, however there's no secondary voltages on the output pins of LOPT there's supposed to be +25v, +15v, +180v. No scr aswell as high voltages.



    When i press the switch which is responsible to bring the tv out of standby these voltages mentioned above drop B+ drop to 93v



    PLZ HELP

    I have the exact same thing. Does anyone know if there are any recalls on this tv or do all rca tv's just fall apart after 3 years.

From the symptoms you describe, it seems the high voltage flyback autotransformer has failed along with the horizontal amplifier (they are slaved to each other). The sound comes from the flyback unit.

Well, the only way to solve this is to get a technician take a look at the set, I'm afraid. Repairs could cost upto $100 or more, depending upon the number of components that need to be replaced,


It may be worth getting fixed up. If you decide to do so, call around, as shops have different rates and different expertise.

Hope that helps!

RCA F32650 production May 2003. Was working fine. Turned it on the next day, got no picture and a high pitched whining noise.  Please let me know what I should do to fix it.


If it weren't for the high pitch whining noise. I would say it probably is an internal fuse inside the chasis. It is rated at 1.5 to 2.0 amps. With the whining noise it sounds like a trouble shooting bench
job. Problems occur when a electrical/electronics device is turned on and turned off. Inrush voltage,
when it is turned on, can go up to three times more than normal. This also happens at turn off. Solid state components usually fail at this time. I don't feel that this is a problem that can be fixed in the home.---BBB

Sony Trinitron KV-19TS20 Screen displays purple static or awful image.


This unit needs a tuner. A new one from Sony will run over $70, so I doubt that it is worth it. It is possible that poor ground connections could cause something like this, but the symptoms seem a bit too severe. I think it is time to invest in a newer set.

Samsung SlimFit 30" high pitch whining noise


I have had the same high pitch tone problem for several months after about 20 minutes of use. It is so bad it's rendered the TV almost unwatchable. I contacted a repair place from Samsung's website. I was told that is likely the flyback transformer. I don't know what it is, but it sounds cool like a flux capacitator. I was told it would be about $100 to fix. However, I have had very little luck getting the repair shop to order the part and do the work.

Tv wont turn on


A high pitched chirp is a sign that you have a short on the load of your power supply. I just finished repairing one of these sets and it had a shorted horizontal output transistor and a bad flyback transformer.
