I'm having the exact same problem. So far, all info I've found states it's probably a loss of high voltage. My RCA bigscreen is 4 years old & just started having this issue. Many other websites I've looked at regarding this say that a repair will only keep the TV going for another year or two before it could happen again. The price of TVs has come down a lot, so will probably just be more cost effective to buy a new one. I'm going to contact local repair shops today, but people have informed me that this type of repair is almost 500 bucks :( I will post any new info I might come upon.

How do i fix a non responsive tv set?


Do the ballast first. That should get the picture back. The main board controls everything else.

Best to first if you have not done so---UNPLUG the set for several minutes and plug back to power to see if that fixes it (it does a lot of the time especially if you had a power outage).

Screen is turning purple and green dose this cost lots to fix?


It sounds like your tube Shadow Mask may have got magnetised and need to be degaussed.

Turn off your TV at the mains and unplug it for at least two to three hours. Longer the better. After that time power up your TV it should degauss the tube at power up.

Worth a try before you give up on it. Or else get your picture tube replaced. It may be more economical than purchasing a new television. Also try to have the picture tube of an old color T.V as modern picture tubes lacks quality when compared to older ones. But check those tubes thoroughly before buying it.

My Sony Trinitron has stopped working mid viewing. The on/off/stand by light just flashes. Any idea how to get the TV back on?


You can try unplugging the TV power chord, leave unplugged for several hours, then plug back in and try it.
If no results you will need it serviced as there are many possibilities. If the light is blinking in a pattern, example flashes three times then pauses then flashes three times again, the number of times it is blinking can give the servicor a clue as to what circuit is at fault.

My RCA D52W20 will not stay on


Clicking sound is power relay engaging. If all systems are not functioning properly, unit will shut down to prevent further damage and/or fire hazard

Picture fades to black then reappears and repeats fades to black .


Is the sound ok. Yust the Picture. If both dissapear replace power supply board. That is the main big board with the most heatsinks on it. Main power gos from a switch board to main power supply.

Will not turn off


It sounds like the contacts on the on-off relay are stuck on. You can tap the top of the relay cover and that will shut it off (releasing the contacts) For a permanent fix, try taking the plastic cover off the relay and clean the contacts with a file (or just replace the relay)

No picture or sound


If you had a burning smell, well the board is toast. These sets are made to replace the entire board at one time. Before installing the replacement module, the picture tube should be checked. A defective picture tube ( such as a G1 short) may cause a failure in the power supply section.
