Question about RCA 32F531T 32" TV

1 Answer

Tv doesn't come on

I recieved a rca tv model g35302wk and when i first got it it would turn and go off a few seconds later. if i waited ten minutes and tried again it would come on and go off the same way. but now it doesn't do anything when i push the power button. i checked the fuse and it is good but on the bottom of the circuit board i found a few solder joints that have a bunch of brown stuff around them and on top of the circuit board i noticed that around the some of the smaller capiciters looks like it was stained by something. i didn't see any capaciters popped though

The brown stuff you see is excess flux and is not hurting anything,you need to check the horizontal output transistor for a short,sometimes this transistor goes bad because loose conections in the horizontal driver transformer and could have been intermitant,if the transistor is shorted it likely took the safety resistor that gives him the volts to operate.It seem you are familiar with tv service but some measurements need to be made with a meter to check for a short.If the transistor is bad it need to be replaced with an exact replacement,check for loose conection anyway very carefully,some are hard to see.

Rca HD61LPW42 -- we just replaced the color wheel. now we get a picture but only for a few seconds. then it turns off and after a few seconds restarts. this goes on indefinitely. a couple of times...


Hello

If the power light blinks slowly,

you've tried to turn on the TV during

the lamp cooldown cycle. Wait

approximately 30 seconds, and the TV
will turn on automatically.

If light blinks, pauses for about a

minute, and blinks again: the lamp is

trying to turn on (TV will turn on

when successful). If TV doesn't turn

on and sequence continues, the lamp also
needs to be replaced.

To order lamp call 1-800-338-0376.

Have your TV serial number

and lamp type available (you'll

find this information on the

sticker that's on the right side of
the TV).
OK.

My rca r52wh74 turns on for 10 secs then off.


was the storage unit climate controlled? If not then it's most likely due to heat and or humidity in which case I would suggest cleaning out the tv from the inside if you want to spend the time to do so but there is a good chance that the tv will need to be replaced.

RCA HDTV model#HD52W59. When I turn the power on it stays on for a few seconds and then goes off by itself.


TV turns off unexpectedly
• Sleep timer may have been activated.
• Electronic protection circuit may have been activated because of a power surge. Wait 30 seconds and then turn on again. If this
happens frequently, the voltage in your house may be abnormally high or low.
• Unplug the TV. Wait ten minutes. Then, plug the TV in again.
