Re: RCA F27667 No Picture / Chirping sound

I will bet you 10 to 1 that the flyback transformer and the horizontal output transistor is bad. an no at this point the set is not worth fixing.

My old 32 inch rca f32665 stopped working as we were watching it. no picture or sound and there is a sound coming from the back where the power cord goes in that sounds exactly like a cricket only its a...

The usual cause is a shorted horizontal output transistor. The way this chassis is designed, the supply makes 140 volts which is always on and applied to the transistor. The heavy load on the power supply causes it to make that chirping sound as it keeps trying to start, then shuts down right away.

The h-out is Q14401, RCA part number 237470. A 2SC5148 can replace it.

I found chirping noise problem

If your set is an RCA which I believe it is, you can contact RCA to find their part distributor for your area.

How did you determine that these parts are acutaly defective???

When these types of parts are defective, the cause must also be found. When replacing the parts, they will probably fail again unless the underlying cause is found. This will require the proper training, service manual, TV service experience, and the proper tools for troubleshooting.

As for changing the parts, you will require the proper tools and soldering equipment. After all the faults are found and the parts replaced, and the set is working, it is best to verify the power supply performance, the high voltage regulation, and the operating temperature of the various components effected in order to insure reliable after service operation.

RCA 32 in TV no picture no sound just a beeping noise TV power is on

Hello cote,

This indicates a problem in the power supply either the low voltage switching supply or the High voltage power supply. The sounds you hear is the shutdown circuit activating, I would not suggest that you try to repair this problem because of the dangers involved. I would suggest that you take it to a qualified TV repair shop. This problem should not cost you much, however it is the best choice for the problem you described.

I hope this helps,
Thank you,

All the reports are showing the same problem the TV is in shutdown mode.

Something is wrong and it is refusing to start it makes a chirping or clicking sound. Solution is that it needs to be repaired nothing you can do unless you want to try replacing the motherboard yourself.

TV WILL NOT COME ON - TV Chirps when you plug it in

The F25432 uses the CTC203 series chassis. The most common cause of the picture being intermittent is poor solder joints on the small coil connected to the base of the horizontal output transistor. These cracked solder joints will eventually cause the horizontal output transistor to short, and the power supply will "squeel" when plugged in. If you have experience working on TV's then you can try resoldering the joints on that coil and checking/replacing the horizontal output transistor. If you do not have experience working on TV's then allow a qualified tech to handle it for you.

My tv is making a chirping sound with no picture

Sure can as its the most common problem RCA ever had with their tv sets, besides the tuner sheild problem in the past.. Your problem maybe a small coil off the horizontal driver transformer and the other side going to the base of the horizontal output transistor, as the coil needs to be taken out and the leads scraped as at the factory the robot left too much enamial on the coil wire and it causes a bad connection. Problem 2 could be a shorted horizontal output transistor that is shorted and or the main high voltage tranformer/flyback. If you know how to work on tvs then all you gotta do is give the model or chassis # to the parts distributor and they will give a kit with alot of papers to read and follow as well as a small blue cap along with a new transformer and be sure you measure the horizontal output transistor out of the circuit as in circuit it will measure shorted because the horizontal drive transformer to the base of it. Now if your not a tech then your gonna want to take in this set to a pro but let me warn ya its gonna cost between $175.00 to $250.00 bucks to fix.. Good luck
