RCA RTD 207 Power light but no power

The power/standby light comes on when the unit is plugged in but that's it, nothing more. Both fuses are good. Nothing looks burned, no odors. What could be wrong? -Brett

SOURCE: System won't power up

Hi,

Based on your description, we can limit the fault to the power supply board and in particular to possibly 3~4 components:

  • bridge diode;
  • filter capacitor (mains);
  • regulator;
  • filter capacitor (secondary).
blown fuse indicate a short in any of these.

As Jaime867 has suggested, in the absence of a readily available replacement board, component level might be the best alternative at the moment. Having posted the most likely culprits further narrows down your troubleshooting. Could you pls post back the part number of the smaller IC either 4 or 8 pins?

Alternately, pls check for the presence of a VDR, it would look like a coin (often green in color or something else) with 2 pins. They have been known to short out also and cause fuse to blow. One possible indicator is chipped or flaked of one side or a hairline crack on top. If it is chip, there would be a silvery color on the inside.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: Unit will not power on, has the standby light on

I took your advice I unpluged the unit then held the power button in then pluged it back into power outlet the unit came on. There is one thing I might add I had to do it twice before the unit came on. Now how long will it work? Who knows

Won't turn on


Unplug the unit , leave it unplugged, after an hour remove the top cover, look for a fuse near where the power cord enters the unit
. it will be near the power transformer and labeled F1 they are usually 4.5amp 125/250v. the reason for powering the unit down and leaving it off is to let the power capacitors bleed off.some fuses are in holders and some solder in. Hope this helps. If the unit has a bar code anywhere on it you can read the bar code with an app for cell phones and get all the info there. Also try schematicsunlimited.com

32 inch rca getting power, but wont turn on


I see so many here with no sound/nopicture issues:

ISSUES:

1. IF sound main fuse/s are good.
2. If no power or standby check main fuse, standby power supply and any signsof damage you can see---burnt parts etc.
3. almost all these sets the troubleshooting involves checking voltages on the main power board to narrow down theproblem.
4. Be safe and if you do not know what you are doing don't open the set.

Answers to issues:

1. RE:fuses---if a blown fuse is found get a good replacement(not the genericones like Radio Shack). Many fuses are special even aside from amperage--Don'tput a higher rated amperage fuse in the set for any reason.

2. RE: power supply in set: if total dead aside from main fuse the set uses astandby power supply that runs 7/24 and a main supply (some are combined andsome not.

Here aside from checking fuses you want to examine all the filter caps on thepower/standby to see if any are puffed up or buldged up in some fashion--Iattach a photo of a good one---top should be silver metal and PERFECTLY flatand have no brown material coming out on top or bottom.

What happens in the standby area is they use caps with too low a voltage rating(saves money) which causes them to fail in a year or two---the standby runs7/24 and the heat dries out the caps and they fail.

3. Trouble shooting consists of the above and then at some point you have to buyand try a board to see if it fixes it or not.

4. Safety first--no TV set is worth getting injured or even killed over.If set is opened at least look for puffed up and bad caps like in thisphoto.5_29_2012_3_02_02_pm.jpg
left one is good and right one is bad.

Samsung LN40C610N1F. When plugged in, the red standby light comes on, but when I hit the power button the unit will not power on. The light doesn't blink or anything.

if set opened look for puffed up caps like these on the power board.

No Power on rt2580


According the parts list on the model unit your fuse is suppose to be F101,FUSE 6A 125V. Is it possible that you have an undersized fuse?

I don't believe that one amp differents would cause your unit to blow like that but, you never know. More than likely you have a bad component in the power supply or power amp.

Then again, with an average replacement cost of $150 online; it not worth getting too deep into the repairs.
